If they execute like they have in NYC, we now have well over 300 small cells in just over 5 months times.

I think he was saying there are  2030 small cells nationwide around the corner. Not sure what the 30 is in there instead of a nice round number like 2000.  :D

 

 

How many small cells in LA does that make counting the Jonathan Kramer's tracking?

Now we just need small cells in Orange County,I.E., riverside, San Diego and band 26 all across SoCal and we'll be set. Lol!

How does the earfcn of 41176 fit with the other B41 carriers in the market? What do the first 3 carriers use?

Year 2030. Attempted joke. Sorry.

I knew the sarcasm in the context you meant. Knowing Sprint, that's pretty accurate

Weren't NYC small cells already in place and just needed to be converted from WiMax to LTE?

Alot of them were from Wimax hayday's, but the last 3 months i have seen at least 30+ pop up that were not part of the initial Wimax deployment.

Initial quick conversions were existing small cells right of ways.

 

Most recent ones and going forward are organic sprint deployments.

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 probably more, I just haven't come across them.

I actually saw one way down south on Carson Street just west of Normandie last month when I was in town. LA city strip between Torrance and Carson.

And in Alaska where it was reported that AT&T is broadcasting an LTE carrier in the PCS G Block, Sprint's PCS G Block.

Any proof of this?

Any updates on small cell deployments?

It's all over and expanding every day.

 

Majority is in existing light poles.

These aren't small cells, but they're kind of rare:  Single sector GMO macro sites (non-omnidirectional).

(That's a Verizon site across the street.)

Pretty decent speeds too:

      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.

    • Ah, I see.  Thanks for those details! It is great to see some posts on this subject.
    • I was reading the FCC filing for the Pixel 6 yesterday and saw that it included n258 - I was wondering what that was. That will be my next phone so nice to know it will support this new spectrum. 
    • The decommissioning of Sprint sites has started, the optimistic worrying starts about which sites they will keep and convert. Only 2 out of the 3 B41 sectors are on Cellmapper, and 0 B25/26 sectors. I think another site near me also got turned off/decom'd, but I haven't checked it yet. I guess its time to start paying more attention to Sprint sites... Link to street view of the site via Google Maps ,  Link to the site in Cellmapper .

    • Haven't gone anywhere yet, so I can't speak to benefits.  My issue was that I was out on Monday morning and it appears that T-Mobile has turned off several Sprint towers near me.  I was sitting in a parking lot near Landmark Mall on -118 dBm Band 25 because two of the sites I used to connect to there were apparently not running, so data would barely move.  This is in addition to my home site which has been off for several weeks, but that wasn't an issue because I don't use wireless data at home.  But if they're starting to turn off Sprint sites and leave holes, then there's really no alternative. So far, I've only seen T-Mobile, but that makes sense since I've only been home and my home site is gone on Sprint, so the site I had been connecting to was a lot weaker.  I'll have to see when I'm out and about, possibly this weekend. When ROAMAHOME came out, I had that removed and blocked from my account since T-Mobile's network is so lousy, so my lines were not automatically pushed to MULTOCN.  I had to have the block removed and then MULTOCN manually added.  That's probably not typical. - Trip
    • Are you seeing a benefit from MOCN?  Is it true that MOCN is highly biased to using T-Mobile towers?  Should everyone with a non-5G phone ask for MOCN? I had the impression it was supposed to be automatic now, perhaps even without being entered explicitly.  Is this not the case?  I realize that it may take some time to draw conclusions so if you do not know yet that is fine. Thanks!
