Sprint's iDEN Shutdown To Affect 'Small Number' Of Co-Located WiMAX Sites


Recommended Posts

 

The main protection site in Baton Rouge is on a nextel only site.

 

I can't remember off hand...is there another carrier's panels below the clear ones?

 

I believe the one in baker is also on a Nextel site. But I don't think these are the ones they are talking about. These two are mounted separately. I bet they are talking about the the WiMAX sites that are on the same rack as the Nextel panels.

could any of these be protection sites?

 

Clearwire is not in the position to shut down any Protection Sites without running afoul of the FCC. If they need to shut down a Protection Site, they will need to secure another location covering the same amount of POP's or possibly more.

I looked it up and yes, now there is another carrier's panels on the site at foster and north st.

Google maps? Or do you have random pics of sites?

    • New oddity since the Feb security patch and a carrier services upgrade, no matter if Wifi is turned on or off, I'm seeing a Wifi 4 connection to an unknown ssid.  Airplane mode, etc didn't get rid of it. Connecting to my home wifi (which turned into Wifi 5) then disconnecting resolved the issue. Not sure where/why the ghost was coming from
    • Digging permits for fiber/power pulled by T-Mobile. American Tower sites are just easy to look up since we can find where they are easy enough.
    • Where do you get new tower plans for American Tower? Do they show on the American Tower Site Locator map?    Also, here’s a map of permits across Northwest Ohio (Lucas County) if anyone’s interested 😁 https://www.google.com/maps/d/u/2/edit?mid=1-qgOcMVOnqW4b9-HhUDc7AGxbRLqn48&usp=sharing
    • That's a decent number of new sites. Nebraska is likely the oddest market in the country, as T-Mobile didn't exist here until a few years ago. Until last summer, their footprint didn't really extend much out of Omaha, Sprint had a much larger footprint. But I'd like to think that their aggressive expansion here is a signal that they intend to follow through on their rural expansion plans. Given the number of American Tower sites that we know they are targeting across NE, KS, MO, IA, AR and IL, it does seem that they have an expansion plan ready to go. Unfortunately we haven't done any digging for the OH area so I don't have any details there for you.
    • Here are the new sites in the Toledo area from the last few years. All of these are Sprint conversions, and they still have a few more Sprint sites to convert
