The pluses appear to be new sites, as they are not currently part of the network according to the data we have.

Not that we can mention publicly*

Taking to another source .. matching up T-Mobile and Verizon tower maps .. those purple pluses look to be co-locations with T-Mobile and Verizon sites

Those are the EP90XS, EP92XS, EP85XD, & EP85XCs locations.

 

Cough.. you're looking at the legacy sites info & not our new ones....

1-2 flagpole(I believe) sites up by far east Paseo Del Norte just started broadcasting LTE in the past few minutes. Thank goodness because that's been a Sprint wasteland for a long long time.

I was looking at the one place... I see XS and 90XC, but they don't line up with that map.

The ABQ sites were already going to be in the next NV Sites Update map, but I was not aware of the El Paso ones. :tu:

Can you find out any information for the Las Cruces, Alamogordo area? LC is far behind for being a collage town. My wife works at a medical plaza off E Loman and can't get signal inside the building at all.

Just from what he posted there are at least 6 sites going up over the next 18 months including 1 east of I-25. 1 of the south side sites seems to be a colocation with Verizon that recently got shot down by NIMBYs in the area, last I read about it anyway.

Ya, I haven't been in las cruces in awhile used to work there .. it should have b26 live now as it's not part of the Ibez market ... las cruces is also a growing market and a college town .. sprint need to invest going up us 70 as well... and add as much band 41 as they can

I will check into it for you ... all three LC alamagrdo need more towers. He told me LTE plus deployment is on going through 2019... I'm sure they will hit LC Alamogordo as well

So, I was able to confirm the pink crosses are planned sites

From matching up the map that I have with these planned sites.. they would surpass at&t in tower density in that area.. I'm going to try to get him to send me a full map

Quite an increase for Sprint in the 2H 2017 ABQ RootMetrics report. Still 4th place, but network reliability is nearly consistent across all 4 carriers.

Nice ! 7mbps on average after just a few b41 upgrades .. once more upgrades to b41 happen .. sprint could make a run for the number 1 spot in Albuquerque

The Samsung galaxy s8/s8+ are getting the software update for sprints calling plus. I just don't know if it depends on the network for it to work or if it just needs the software update

It only requires software update to the user. Calling plus is still in beta, but available on the whole network.

    • Nothing to do anything about number of customers... How are they not on par with the big two?  TMobile is crushing it for data in all the major markets.  If TMobile can execute their 2017 coverage map goal, they will be on par with AT&T, which is considered to be in the same coverage league as VZW.  So yes, TMobile will be in this club come 2018. https://www.t-mobile.com/coverage/lte-comparison-map
    • This is a reach. AT&T and Verizon still have twice as many customers as T-Mobile and even if they added 2 Million customers per quarter it would take 8 years before they got to VZ and AT&T's current size, assuming VZW or AT&T don't have any growth at all. We can acknowledge T-Mobile's accomplishments without making it seem like they're nearly on par with the big two. In terms of data speed, sure. In terms of price, they're approaching it too. However, you won't be able to find the consistency of the duopoly's network nationwide on T-Mobile right now. That'll take quite a bit more infill sites. That's why given Sprint's "non-announcement" of 8K macro sites for expansion, I'm glad to see it's not a huge expansion because we know that they're going for reliability over square mileage.
    • burnout8488-   Probably about 30 minutes a day.  I mostly text and web browse with it. Galaxyguy-         I didn't add any other apps at that same time...  Of course, Samsung has installed a number of apps around then and in the last week that I have no use for-  I'll watch to see if indeed my battery rebounds or continues to suck.
    • And in terms of this, TMobile already does on many fronts.  They constantly prove to be #1 in so many data tests. Verizon and TMobile are essentially #1/2 in terms of data speeds and they are the most constrained carriers in terms of spectrum.  In terms of Coverage, TMobile continues to show us how they will be on par with VZW/AT&T soon and do continue to deliver with expanded coverage. TMobile is well on its way without Sprint to be equal to VZW/AT&T.  So that is three strong nationwide carriers with Sprint still being a forth option if absolute total native coverage is less a concern.  They are well on their way to provide fast speeds within existing coverage areas.  Honestly, with a little stronger rural coverage and less dead zones TMobile will be the nations #2 carrier ahead of AT&T.
    • I don't recall anyone saying they expect pricing to further reduce in either scenario...Sprint going alone nor a merger with Tmo.
