Sprint 4G Rollout Updates

Tuesday, March 20, 2012 - 5:18 PM MDT

 

S4GRU Member Kevster1321 read our Boston Network Vision/LTE Deployment is charging full steam ahead with 20 sites now confirmed complete article last Friday, and sprang into action. With a map in hand provided to him by Sprint 4G Rollout Updates, he drove up the road a few miles from his home to the sleepy little burg of North Oxford, Massachusetts.

 

Kevin was able to get these shots of the site. It is exciting that we were able to report these new Network Vision sites on Friday, and we could get affirmation of our information in less than 24 hours. Thanks Kevin, for jumping right on it.

 

In the photos above the article, you can see the Sprint section of the tower, second rung from the top. In the photos, you can clearly see the remote radio units (RRU's) now behind the new NV panels. The old legacy panels are still visible and not yet removed at this point. Kevin performed some performance tests and was able to get consistent sub 100ms pings and download speeds averaging 1.6Mbps. These are good improvements over the legacy 3G EVDO that was in the area.

 

Thanks to Kevin for providing this information. Network Vision is real, and it's coming to a Sprint site near you. Stay tuned as we announce more live sites. You can go to your site and take photos and performance tests for us. We are really looking forward to when LTE devices go on sale in Mid April and our members can give us those performance tests!

There is one microwave on the site half way down.

 

Not to question you, but I know Verizon is using microwave back-haul as well, and it would not be unthinkable that At&t would use it as well... do we know if that is a sprint microwave or not?

Josh...there is no way to know for certain about the microwave backhaul. However, the fact this is a Network Vision modified site is unquestionable. Also, Kevin noticed significant performance improvements since his previous use of this site in the past.
