Indianapolis Sprint Tower

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

I cant find this tower on Indianapolis's map for cell sites but it looks like a Sprint tower with RUUs attached.

 

What do you all think?

AT&T is starting to use RRU's, what does the base station look like? is it in a shed or not?

sorry to burst your bubble but those towers have been everywhere for years. Sprint has started doing some upgrades in our area but I have seen no improvements as of yet. those towers are probably AT&T t mobile or Verizon towers that absolutely destroy sprint service in our area, since we were shafted on the 4g. I am excited to have 3G speeds above 100kbits also lol.

Hi, actually all of the new hardware I'm referring to has been added in the past few months Max. The tower picture I posted had those added a month ago.

 

Most areas speed is fine with me 1mb, bit some areas are bad. Also those areas have the same issue with Verizon 4g and ATT 4g

I live close to Ivy Tech downtown and my speeds suck all the time. Everyday. I have always wondered how I can live so close to downtown and have such a decrepit and slow network experience. Voice calls are fine but data....sheesh! A few weeks ago, I was in the parking lot of the Walgreens on16th and Meridian and couldn't get a signal at all. 16th and Meridian! I have an Evo 3d which doesn't have any radio problems. I'm like Riggs.I'm excited to see speeds over 100kb also. I tend to stay on the West side and the only place I've ever seen Wimax was at the racetrack and a couple of pockets on the northwest side.

The last time I was downtown during the mini marathon, I tested about 800Kbps. On the north side a few days ago, around 86th and Michigan I got 900Kbps, sometimes higher.

 

Here in Muncie I've been seeing speeds fluctuate violently in the past week. A few towers here are due for NV updates so I'm just crossing my fingers.

The current state of Sprint's network is pretty bad for 3G data in many places. Network Vision will correct most of these problems. Fortunately, Indy is in a sooner rather than later area. You should start seeing network improvements this year...and some 4G LTE.

That's AT&T's RRU. Same around STL where AT&T is doing a Network Vision like upgrade in getting 4G LTE running.

 

Thank you for he replay, ATT just started lte here so that makes sense.

I've not made any changes to the map since it was posted. I will be working on S4GRU most of tomorrow and will take a look at it. I'm pretty tied up today.

    • Yet another "Carrier" move: T-Mobile users have only now discovered sneaky change made in May
    • Went to Hurricane Harbor again this past weekend, this time testing Verizon and T-Mobile. In my testing, Verizon is now the fastest carrier, at least on the Hurricane Harbor sector. Despite it being pretty overcast on Saturday with temperatures in the mid-80's the park was at full capacity.  Verizon had 160MHz of n77 and T-Mobile now has 160MHz of n41. On LTE I was seeing speeds in the range of 50-100Mbps while T-Mobile's LTE on was completely swamped, barely crossing 3Mbps. While both carriers only have a single high capacity sector (facing Great Adventure, Verizon benefits from having CBRS deployed on all sectors. This is an extra 60-100MHz of capacity that T-Mobile doesn't have. Maybe when T-Mobile gets around to deploying their C-band we'll see a boost in speeds again to be more competitive with Verizon. On the 5G side of things, T-Mobile's speeds were just over half that of Verizon.  That said, neither carrier was slow and I had zero issue using Xbox Cloud Gaming on T-Mobile despite their weaker upload speeds and higher ping.  
    • I think the newer ones have signal bars on them. I took a photo of one in Red Hook a month or two ago that had the same design.
    • Well well, looks like we found one of the two Link5G towers that might actually have 5G. Notice anything different? This one has the same signal bars icon that the pole mounted 5G oDAS units have. It’s in Chinatown at East Broadway and Forsyth St. It’s impossible to tell what carrier it is, though.
