  1. If sprint is planning to cover most of the other 50% of sites with tri band this year. Starting in April sprint will have a lot of work to do for the remainder of the year .. haven't seen to many reporting new coverage/ upgrades early on. Was sprint really waiting for the new capex to kick in ? Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
  2. Sprints network took a big hit in El Paso 1st half of 18 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Just a quick update: all permits for current upgrades (20) are ready to issue, but seems sprint is at a stand still at the moment... (maybe a strategy change) .. all 13 small cells are live between boost/sprint store and the two stand alone small cells are still under review by the city... this makes for a total of 27 tower with upgrades once sprint completes the other 20.... no word yet on band 26 ... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Also finding more of these around the city .. good idea from sprint, but long term these aren’t enough capacity imo just coverage fill ins.. So, this is where El Paso stands going into Q1 Also one more thing band 25 is now reaching even further as band 25 is currently the only coverage band here .. indoor penetration isn’t bad at all on band 25 currently..
  4. I know it’s early on and a lot of talk surrounding sprint about 5G and new technology... haven’t been on this thread for a while, but are there any improvement been reported early on .. haven’t seen any real big improvements here In El Paso .. seems like things are on stand still... any added coverage reported ??

  5. That is good to see ..so the push that is coming soon .. should put Albuquerque over top and sprint may surpass one of the competitors Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. This sprint reports says a 102% increase in speeds in Albuquerque. Just wanted to ask if sprints network is that much better in Albuquerque Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Well sprint has been back to the site twice .. I thought by now it should be running 3xca using beam forming Specially since part of the sector is the only other site that covers part of downtown Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  9. Exactly this set up but it’s just doing mini macro Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Yes it’s running 2xca mini macros like on sites where they just added a rru, but this happens to be a full build Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Sprint added a full build running additional panels but it’s only running mini macros Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. It’s just odd that the small cell is literally right next to the tower . I would think it would cause interference Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I’m tracking a lot of activity in El Paso..... currently sprint is going the mini macro route on about 95% of site upgrades. I’ve been noticing some stuff that I wanted to mention. On one site sprint added full build to the site but choose to turn on mini Marco.... another area that I’m tracking sprint added a small cell on the same property that they have a tower on ( the small cell went on a boost mobile store ) could this mean a possible tower being decommissioned or they just added the small cell until they can upgrade the site The red spot is the tower the red circle is the small cell....
