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

It's almost impossible to search permit records en masse in LA, so count yourself lucky that you can even track that!

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

May it pop up for you out of nowhere like It did for me. Considering the massive Capex increase lately it's highly likely you'll see something soon.

Same, everything I saw says Sprint has been CUTTING capex massively. 

 

Large increase in permit applications... more site installs than we have seen in quite some time... actual LTE coverage expansion (within the existing footprint)... small cells showing up in larger quantities (outdoor DAS as well)

It looks like Sprint is requesting a waiver so that Sprint can start deploying LTE 800 in the Phoenix area.  I wonder if Sprint is planning to request another waiver so that parts of LA Metro, OC counties and say the northern part of San Bernardino county (ex: Riverside, Corona, etc) can start deploying LTE 800.  It seems silly to keep that large of a land mass hostage due to Mexico rebanding.  I think the area south of the Salton Sea should be excluded in a waiver for San Bernardino county and that areas north of that should be allowed to begin LTE 800 deployment.  What do you guys think?

I think it's about time... they should've requested a waiver long ago... they've got all this spectrum and need to put it to use asap because they're losing a lot of customers. And they also need to get a carrier settings update put out asap to allow for simultaneous date and voice. Verizon (as well as the other carriers) all have it no reason why sprint does not

The problem is that we dont know if Sprint is even requesting the same type of waiver for LA Metro/OC/northern parts of SB county. Hopefully they are.

Actually they've added more customers then AT&T in all of 2016 and so far in 2017.

Yup, I had B26 when I was in Phoenix near the airport.

      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.
