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.

    • Strange business model that they keep around all these pricing plans. 1000s of plans per carrier is reportedly not uncommon.  Training customer support must be a nightmare. Even MVNOs have legacy plans. A downside of their contract mentality I guess. Best to change contracts during a recession. But then all carriers try to squeeze out legacy plan benefits as they grow old.  
    • Everything "Uncarrier" is becoming "Carrier" again. Because of the Credit Limit that T-Mobile put on our account for no reason at all (and wouldn't change/update the last time I checked all the way up to the CEO), I don't plan on buying/upgrading our iPhones through T-Mobile. I'm going through Apple directly. Looks like I'll be going through Google and Samsung directly for our other lines for upgrades. Also, we're staying on Sprint Max given the ridiculous pricing for Go5G Plus. On Sprint Max, we currently pay for our Plan: $260 for 7 Voice Lines $25 for two Wearable Lines. (One is $10/Month. The other is $15/Month because the AutoPay discount only applies up to 8 lines.) Total: $285/Month vs. Go5G Plus (Per the Broadband Facts "nutrition label" on the T-Mobile Website): https://www.t-mobile.com/commerce/cell-phone-plans $360 - ($5 AutoPay Discount x 7 Voice Lines) = $325 The Watch Plans show as either $12/Month or $15/Month: https://www.t-mobile.com/cell-phone-plans/affordable-data-plans/smartwatches So this is about the same for the wearables as what we're paying now. Overall, it's quite more than we're paying now to switch plans. Ridiculous....
    • Welcome back! That's similar to my best (1250ish). A few people have broken 2000 on good sites. 
    • Lots of new multi-carrier nodes popping up in Bushwick. Crown Castle Fiber node at Ridgewood & Palmetto:   Crown Castle Solutions node at Irving & Jefferson:   Crown Castle Solutions node at Wilson & Noll:  
    • I’m surprised they’re running a 5x5 Band 66 carrier still. In NYC T-Mobile has 25x25 AWS and they’re running 20x20 Band 66 and 5x5 n66 (in testing). Presumably when n66 commercially launches they’ll drop Band 66 down to 15x15 and go straight for a 10x10 n66 carrier like they did with n25.
