Speaking of a growing number of B41 sites have you noticed any new Mobilitie sites?

 

I've seen a few added around the first sites in the K-town area, mostly north and west of there.

 

I haven't been traveled out to DTLA or West LA to notice any Mobilitie sites.  Hopefully they start expanding those Mobilitie sites to the OC and eastern parts of LA county (like past the 605 FWY).

For the first time I noticed some small cells in West L.A. So far, the parts of the city that have multiple deployments include: Koreatown, parts of Hollywood, NoHo and now West LA. There's probab

Well, I made a FCC complaint, Not really  against Sprint, but San Bernardino County.  Here's Sprint's response...

 

 

See attached.

 

In short, Sprint places the blame for the slow San Bernardino retune on the the IBEZ and the Mexico side not rebanding their 800mhz  Apparently SB County can't reband their 800mhz Safety freq until Mexico side rebands first.   And Sprint can't deploy 800mhz LTE until SB County rebands.  A domino effect.  So until the IBEZ is rebanded, and than SB County, LA Metro and other So Cal areas will have to wait for 800MHZ LTE.

Good info. Too bad they don't mention their progress on deploying 800Mhz 1x and how far in advance that will come before LTE. I'd love to have LTE at all times indoors, but I'd settle to first have a good calling experience.

That was a clever way to get a response.

 

It basically aligns with what I was told.

So that 2H2018 was probably just a conservative guess on their part since they really don't know. At least that's what it sounds like. Could be anytime all the way up till the next 2 years

Two years actually seems about right depending on how quick Mexico rebands. Once Mexico is finished then sprint has to wait on San Bernardino to finish up. Then at some point sprint then has to put 800 MHz RRUs on nearly every site in SoCal, or at least the ones that got NV upgrades after they realize this was going to take an extra 7 years...

 

Nextel. The gift that keeps on giving. [emoji23]

Did you know that Trump promised that his proposed wall will not only block people from entering the country, but it will also block all RF to/from Mexico?  Problem solved!

Mexico is sending all its bad signals and interference over here. (Maybe some of the signals are OK.)

 

We're going to build a Faraday Wall and AT&T Mexico is going to pay for it.

Has anyone spotted 3xCA yet in LA Metro?

 

I think I just replied in the OC thread, but a reminder, 3xCA hasn't been reported live for public use anywhere yet. 3rd carrier I don't believe has been widely reported in ALU/Nokia markets just yet.

The Mobilitie small cell invasion has begun creeping toward Universal City and just SE of Burbank.  They seem to have streamlined the design and installation to something more visually appealing than the initial batch in K-Town and Hollywood.

Is there a higher res picture you might be able to link to? Just want to take a closer look!

Here's a link to the full res picture, but it's just an iPhone pic:

And here's a much better closeup of a similar setup from Jonathan Kramer's site.  The only difference is a missing cover on the post of the top mounted antenna:

That works! The inline photo just appeared really small on my phone. Thanks!

Nice to see Nokia FTHC LTE UE Relay antennas are now in service.

It's good to see more Nokia gear in this market.

 

Also, the placement of this site is interesting.  It's very close to a macro site (as in 1500 ft. or so away).  It seems to strategically fill in an area that might be in a signal "shadow" due to some structures in the way.

Very likely IMO.

Hopefully they install some of these in 91214

Ya I agree. For some reason, it seems like SoCal is being neglected in the sprint network upgrades

I second that. No new upgrades since early 2016 in San Diego. Permits been dead.

You may be surprised. I find my first macro 2.5 permit just this week after more than a year of nothing.

      Even though Sprint doesn't have the best coverage in my area. I do have lots of memories and nostalgia with the company. I wonder who else here will miss Sprint besides me?

      I'm new to this forum, and I've seen people mention cell sites with specific ID's (for example, SF33XC664). Is there any significance to these ID's, and is there a way to decode them? Also, how do I figure out what the cell site ID's are for towers near me?
      Thanks! I'm excited to start talking on this site more 😀

      Samsung Network Vision equipment are highly distinct and fairly easy to spot compared to the equipment that other vendors are deploying. Sprint is Samsung's first extremely massive American contract (baring Clearwire) so there  should be no issues in confusing these equipment for another carrier which happens often with Ericsson NV equipment.

      Below are images of Samsung equipment which includes antennas, remote radio units, base stations, and their mounting configurations.
