Same thing I was thinking. Really did not look like a 'standard' sprint setup to me. There are multiple companies (maybe all?) that now mount RRU's up top, so that isn't really a good way to 'spot' sprint stuff any longer.


Errrrr... Just zoomed in closer. Now I see. Second from the top definitely looks like Clear equipment I've seen.

I did not see the antenna between the two main tiers before. Still can't say for sure that's Clear, but definitely a possibility.

Actually..... That's what they're doing with the Huawei clearwire sites that they must completely decommission by the end of this year... ....

I feel like this has been answered - at least vaguely - but just to clarify, how will the range and performance on these new small cells compared to the old Clear Huwei equipment?

Off Pretty much no difference. Same old antennas are used.

If you look at the pictures Tim linked to in the Colorado thread, or one of the Ohio threads, you'll noticed that the mini-macro is mounted behind the old Clear antenna, so it's broadcasting pretty much the exact same signal, just 2 carriers instead of one.

Well this is exciting. Sprint mostly operates a single carrier network in Seattle (just on old Clear Huwei equipment) so speeds should go through the roof with these swaps.

Sprint has been really quick to remove WiMax equipment in Las Vegas and you see a lot of former co-lo's with empty racks spaces now.
