I found this today in Lenexa, KS.   Is it the 3rd Carrier for Band 41?

 

UARFCN 41374

Yep, third carrier. I found the third carrier online here in Springfield, MO this weekend, and it went live in St. Louis sometime last week as well.

 

Channels here are: 39874 / 40072 / 40270

Sprint's B41 holdings in Baton Rouge include BRS1, BRS2, E1-E4, F1-F4, and H1-H3. That gives them a 6 MHz orphan block (2496-2502), a 12 MHz contiguous chunk (2602-2614), and a 55.5 MHz contiguous chunk (2618-2673.5).

 

FCC records show a new, "Special Temporary" license, WQYL886, has been granted for the K block (filed as the "old" F2 block under the pre-transition band plan). This bridges the gap between the 12 MHz and 55.5 MHz chunks for a total of 71.5 MHz contiguous.

 

The first B41 carrier in Baton Rouge moved to new center of 40913 (2622.3 MHz). Based on the previous center spacing of 19.8 MHz, I expect the second and third carriers to now sit at 41111 (2642.1 MHz) and 41309 (2661.9 MHz) respectively, leaving 10 MHz free at the lower end and enough for a guard at the high end.

When are smaller carrier like Appalchian uses B12 does that means less if any B12 for at&t or Tmobile?

B12 is split into 3 6MHz FDD blocks, the A block (728-734/698-704), the B block (734-740/704-710) and the C block (740-746/710-716). If Appalachian is running a 10x10 B12 LTE carrier, that means they must own at least two blocks. The EARFCN, 5120, equates to center frequencies of 740/710 MHz, suggesting that they own the B and C blocks. This means only the A block is left over for either AT&T or T-Mobile, so in short, yes, Appalachian using B12 means less B12 for everyone else.

I think this is the first second band 25 carrier in the ABQ market. Need an android to confirm.

That's a second carrier. UARFCN (should be EARFCN) is one of the only remaining values in Field Test that is consistently accurate.

Spent some quality time watching the Red Sox this weekend, took some sneak peeks at the latest SignalCheck beta and discovered 4 new sectors and EARFCNs I didn't have noted (see below). I'm guessing B41 Mini-Macros are deployed at Fenway with more sectors than usual? Or is it something else?

High capacity site with more than mini macros per 3 sectors. Ie 6 mini macros feeding 3 antennas.

Four carriers support lilotimz. Need to see strongest lat long. Of course photos of tower would be best. Return trip required. ☺

Look at this further today, the GCI sector is not tied to carrier.  Instead they are very much like Triband Antennas where 09, 0A, 0B floats currently between second and third carrier.

    • There are positives to be had if there is a merger, for sure.  I don't believe a merger is bad in every way. And if it happens, there will be things that I will like. I just believe, at this time, all things considered, I'd prefer they'd be separate.  Just my opinion, and I respect the opinions of others points as well.  Because I considered them, and they are marked in the 'pro' column for me. I like where Sprint is going now more than ever in it's past.  And Sprint's road to "5G" is less capital intensive than the others because of spectrum and equipment deployed. 
    • I was also under the impression that site would be in the town of Wall. And the closest planned site to Wall in my maps is in New Underwood... Wish we had some eyes out there.
    • I don't think a merger will help consumers much.  TMobile capex is $5b.  Sprint might spend $5b. A merged company still could have $10b, but it will take years and a LOT of money to consolidate assets. There is going to be a lot of work, and a lot of money that will not go into making the network better, but making 2 networks 1. If you want to see a combined company make ProjectFi your carrier. Just look at some recent mergers.  Charter is doing horrible. AT&T and DirecTV brought no value but just increased TV bills. Large acquisitions tend not to benefit the customers but more so investors and those on the board who get millions for making a deal happen. As an investor I can see the excitement, but not so much a customer.
    • The total percent of subscribers graph shows everything you need to know about the current US wireless industry.  Verizon has ~35%, AT&T has ~35%, and all the other competitors are competing for the final 25% to 30%.  This also means that 70% to 75% of all the profits are split between AT&T and Verizon which gives them the money to keep deploying and keeps them with much larger, stronger networks.  If AT&T and Verizon can each afford to spend $10 billion+ on their networks each year, no smaller competitor can hope to keep up.
    • I see the purple on the Minuteman Site. I've been to it many sites. Very friendly horse next to it. It's a well established AT&T Guyed Wire Site.  It's possible this might be AT&T LTE Roaming pollution on Sensorly.  Especially given the strength of the report. I was expecting the Sprint site in this area to be in the town site of Wall itself.  I guess it's possible Sprint chose this site instead.  If I still lived in the area, I'd go check it out. But alas..
