Tower on network.sprint.com disappeared


Recommended Posts

This past week in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin There was 2 cell towers on the map at network.sprint.com but one has recently disappeared. Since this change I've been getting a lot of 1x. This doesn't pertain to just where I live. I've been getting 1x speed near Milwaukee, Wisconsin also. Has anyone else notice any towers that disappeared from the map?

Note that network.sprint.com does not show all Sprint sites. Just the ones with planned or recent upgrades. So either the site has completed upgrades, or they planned upgrades have been removed. It does not mean that there is no longer a Sprint site there anymore.

Do I have to become part of the S4GRU Club to see this map?

 

To have interactive maps, yes. There are maps in the blog articles though.

One thing I've noticed on the network.sprint.com maps is that sites disappear and then reappear quite often. My favorite local tower being one of them. I check that thing waaayyyy too often. :blink:

 

It was there in February when I first found out about Sprint's website, then it disappeared for a few days and then came back with a "data speed upgrade". It was there continuously for several months until it disappeared again in July. Again it was back a few days later with a data speed upgrade, and a week or so later a voice capacity upgrade was added to the list. Now this week the data speed upgrade is gone but the voice upgrade is still there.

 

It's just crazy. Almost as if they're resetting the dates so it can always be 6 months out or something. I don't know what's going on with the network.sprint.com site.

An update on my closest tower... (not that anyone cares but me :) )

 

Now network.sprint.com is showing this tower as having a Data Speed upgrade in the last six months so I guess they did something. However, my speed tests this morning aren't showing any better. Best I got was:

Oh well. At least NV backhaul should be there sometime in October if schedules hold.

    • Just figured out this is a waste of time. US Mobile and Verizon lock the eSim to the emei while T-Mobile only uses it to see that you have a capable phone, like Red Pocket does with physical sims (although RP does keep track of what phone you are using it on with the emei.)  So @Trip was right in this case on liking physical sims.
    • Verizon has a reputation for being frugal with MVNOs. After looking around, I also decided US Mobile was my best option. People have gotten C band on it.  Hoping for esim for my S21 Ultra.  No luck so far.  Red Pocket does not claim Verizon 5g, although they say Soon!(TM).  I do see some 5g with it. Typically MVNOs are deprioritized, thus I am reluctant to claim truly getting top speeds with one.
    • Did some exploring yesterday/last night and didn't find a shred of C-Band, including with my brand new US Mobile SIM. Did find 4CA CBRS but the site seemed backhaul constrained; both that plus 15x15 B2 and band-locked 2/66 got me 190 Mbps or so.
    • Did some more exploring yesterday/last night and I think I spotted some LAA downtown but didn't get a chance to confirm before it went away in favor of mmW, which also went away pretty quickly. Also saw another n66 site, as well as an n2 site, making AT&T the second carrier to run n2 DSS within a few miles of me. I think at this point they won't be able to advertise anything flashy, but due to the sheer amount of CA they're throwing at customers here they can keep their network at 50+ Mbps until they can deploy both 3.45 and 3.7, and that's probably enough.
