    The backhaul is connected to the SFP backhaul ports so that's fiber! (left 2 = ethernet 802.3AT, right 2 = SFP)

    It's definitely a Sprint Site. There is a Sprint Cascade ID on the equipment. I looked it up and found it. And like you point out it used to be a relay site. Interestingly though, the site has been there over a year. I found the Cascade ID in the system and there is a Google Map image from June 2017 showing it in place. It shows the old relay too. However, the change to direct backhaul is likely new. Robert

    Was hyped as hell for this, as a huge loyal HTC fanboy, but the lack of Sprint support (let alone complete US network support), is a kick to the nuts, as this literally the phone I have ALWAYS dreamed of. The perfect phone. With my M9 now three years old, I guess I'm going for a U11 instead. Though the Moto z2 Force is damn tempting....

    Even after merging, the new T-Mobile will face an uphill battle. First, AT&T because of FirstNet will have to touch everyone of their sites and so they will probably deploy all their spectrum on their sites. So I presume they will deploy CA, 4x4 MIMO and 256QAM on all their sites. They will also deploy new sites for First Net so they will add their bands on all the new sites. Verizon will have real competition on their hands. New T-Mobile better not bring a knife to a gunfight.

    This is one of a few mobilitie small cells I have found in the area. I'm wondering if it is sprint because there is no relay installed. Actually some that had the relay before has since been removed. It looks to be connected to a wire line network... The two underground communication hatches are on the sidewalk and the unnamed one in the landscaping, yards away from the site. As mentioned, one is unnamed and one says Comcast. Let me know what you guys think. Just as a disclaimer, this site wasn't here about two weeks ago. (Midtown Detroit) Also; Verizon is using a completely different vendor in SE Mich so I highly doubt this site is a verizon one. https://imgur.com/gallery/irfkNzk If I have time i'd like to create a map of all the sprint small cells provided by mobility in SE Mich... stay tuned as my time is limited.

    Okay so I managed to make it out to that other wireline mobilitie site today(or yesterday lol whatever haha) It was getting dark so my photos are not the best but here is what I have. (Btw I also included some of the development going on in this area that may have been reason Sprint decided to locate a small cell here. That and well, its pretty close to Ford Field, Comerica Park and Little Caesars Arena.) Again, sorry for the poor lighting but this is definitely another small cell connected by wire-line as apposed to relay. The last few images are construction for a massive development from Bedrock, which is affiliated with Rocket Fiber.(Both part of quicken loans if that matters) They could be providing the backhaul but unfortunately due to lighting the only wire-line on the utility poles i could spot with a name was Comcast; that's not to say there were many other lines on the utility poles. It was just to dark to spot. Anyway; here it is: https://imgur.com/a/HTaHdmD Any thoughts?
