Is this a new Sprint tower?


Recommended Posts

i can't tell, but I mapped it and listed the nearest tower.

(The red is the nearest Sprint tower), the blue is where the new tower is located. I'm REALLY close to this tower which makes me very happy, if it's Sprint.

 

I helped a friend move today and this morning on the way to her new house, I saw this tower being built!

Anyone know if this is a Sprint tower being constructed or if there's a way to tell who's tower it really is? There's a 25% chance it's a Sprint tower, but AT&T and Verizon have really good coverage around it, so I'm assuming it's either T-Mobile or Sprint.

 

EDIT: I called Sprint and they told me they have nothing in their systems. Bummer. They did mention that it's possible that their system hasn't been updated to reflect that information. We'll see. I'll keep taking pictures as much as I can and see once they put up the panels which carrier it is.

Check the network.sprint.com site, they have new towers on there

Well, they never had it in the upcoming upgrades, but they did have it in the past 6 months upgrades. I do have a new tower in the area, but it's north about 20 miles.

Looks like the tower is right behind a fire station. Could that be some communications tower for the fire department possibly?

That's I think is a Crown tower. I would say that a carrier is going on it likely not com for the station.beefy things

    • ...and I just this morning realized you meant Cumberland, MD.  It threw me because there's an Ashby in Cumberland County, VA, which I'm far more familiar with. - Trip
    • I don't have anything solid to offer on Cumberland, but I came down US-15 today and the water tower site in Weber City is now up and running with B2/12/4/71 (035ACCxx), I believe I saw new T-Mobile antennas on the tower at Sprouses Corner which I will try to confirm on Saturday (definitely not running if they're there), and I believe I may have connected to something that got converted in Farmville.  By process of elimination, my guess is Lancer Park, but I hope to find out tomorrow or Saturday. So upgrades are clearly coming.  You may want to see if your local government officials can tell you anything.  Probably not, but can't hurt to ask. - Trip
    • Interesting twist.  Today, I took off for southern Virginia and had my T-Mobile B71 phone (Revvlry on Android 10) and I noticed the GPS was bad as compared to my other two devices on SCP on the dash.  Couldn't get it to clear by toggling the Location Services box, so I quit and restarted SCP. When I did so, it first came up with the bad coordinates, then extremely rapidly zipped through from where it was stuck all the way up to where I was currently, like the coordinates were backlogged and then suddenly flushed out within a few short seconds.  More bizarrely, I noticed the same behavior on two other devices (Pixel 3a and Moto One 5G Ace, both on Android 11) and had to do the same thing to those.  I also dumped my trails on all three, assuming they were all bad by then.  The rest of my devices were correct. I was barreling down the highway at the time, so I couldn't investigate further.  Other than my quoted message above, I've never seen this behavior before, and now it seems to be widespread.  - Trip
    • Does anyone have any updates to the Cumberland/Mineral County area? Specifically looking to get TMHI in Ft. Ashby.
    • Actually, you are correct. It is possible Dish won't take it. Meanwhile both Dish and T-Mobile pretend they don't want it for negotiation purposes.
