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

    • Luckily, that hasn't arisen in my area where I am, aside from having B14 (well, ALL of AT&T signal) not work at all in Coosa county, Alabama. I wish there was a service for first responders that would go to ANY available carrier, provider, etc..and in the absolute worst case scenario, would give us service. I've been on an ambulance, trying to find an address, and my driver actually had to pull over and we pulled out a map book and tried to find the road using the "old fashioned way".. and that takes valuable time away that sometimes may be vital to someone surviving. BUT, I will say that I've only seen that in Coosa county... both my Tmo and AT&T phones had zero service and I couldn't get GPS, and neither could my driver (VZW service). Maybe satellite will help with that in those times where that occurs.. but that's an extreme example.     Edit to add: Let me add some context to this.. Coosa county isn't regular coverage area for my job.. so it's not a regular thing that we are dispatched to Coosa county.. and actually, there's been a change and that county now has it's own ambulance service that operates.. so the only time we might receive a request is if it's a multiple casualty scenario, or it's a transfer going home from our contracted hospital.  The way that reads above, it may seem like we are just out without some sort of GPS gadget to direct us on where to go, but for the most part, we know our coverage area pretty well. Dispatch can also give us cross streets for reference inside our coverage area (and our home county). Coosa just isn't a regular area for my job to run in. 
    • "Priority" doesn't mean "exclusivity."  When emergency services don't need B14, AT&T can use it for everyone else.  The trade-off is that when it is needed for emergency services, they not only get all of B14, but they have also arranged for priority on the rest of the AT&T network as well.  Beats having spectrum sitting unused most of the time and then not having enough when disaster strikes, as it could be without a partnership with a wireless company like AT&T. - Trip
    • I've wondered if being on the first responder plan has the priority over other 'regular' lines in the same way firstnet does (or, supposed to do with B14...I've seen normal customers on AT&T hit B14 so it's not {specifically} for Firstnet only)...  
    • T-Mobile prices people pay are all over the map. The free lines are key, so take them if ever offered again.  Your priority level would be a key factor for your price.  Only T-Mobile would know the average prices people pay.  Samsung has been offering very good deals at time of new model introductions so I have gone that route for factory unlocked, which allows me to also have a Verizon priority MVNO for when T-Mobile signal fails or I manually override.
    • I also wanted to post a speed test result.. I only do these once in a while from my home area because we are gonna be the last to see changes, like load balancing.  Right now they are digging all over the place for fiber installs, so I'm not sure what the hold-up is on making the upload speed a little more in-line with download speeds, but here is the most recent from my area:   https://www.speedtest.net/my-result/a/10133670525
