Network Vision/LTE - New York City Market

i feel like the reason why there are no confirmed 8T8R sites in NYC is that tower spotting is not nearly as easy here as it is in other places. Between the tall buildings and most of the equipment being kinda hidden on rooftops it's hard for us.

I agree its tougher to find specific antennas at any given site, but at the same time, site spacing is quite dense in NYC. So if one site is not within view, move on to the next.

Awesome, now I'll finally have coverage at my place ;) hey guys, Am I suppose to glow?
 

Gotta love Sprint/Clear panel placement here in Astoria... Absolutely ridiculous, blasting straight at the facade in front!

There is a sprint tower that is next to a clear one in 116th and Park Avenue. You can see the tower clearly. The radios are now under the panels.

We have an AT&T sector facing straight at a hillside 100' away. There is nothing on that hill. If you climb up it and face the sector at the same elevation, my phone will run 75Mbps DL all day long. Too bad no customers will ever use it.

 

Since the hill was so close to the tower and taller than the tower, they should have split the three sectors over approximately 300° on the opposite side, thus equally splitting the sectors over the usable area. Pointing one sector completely in an unusable direction was ridiculous. It would have been better just to make it a 2 sector site, even, skipping the hillside.

 

It just goes to show many of these decisions are made in cubicles in far distant office parks and not by local people who know the area. And the installers just follow the plans. Sometimes just shaking their heads as they drive away.

That makes me wonder if Sprint or in your case AT&T even have local offices deciding on the build outs, or all of the decisions come out of Kansas City/Dallas?

That's exactly what I concluded. No local decision making/review at all in those two instances. Stupid.

Probably put in before the hill was ;)

      Even though Sprint doesn't have the best coverage in my area. I do have lots of memories and nostalgia with the company. I wonder who else here will miss Sprint besides me?

      I'm new to this forum, and I've seen people mention cell sites with specific ID's (for example, SF33XC664). Is there any significance to these ID's, and is there a way to decode them? Also, how do I figure out what the cell site ID's are for towers near me?
      Thanks! I'm excited to start talking on this site more 😀

      Samsung Network Vision equipment are highly distinct and fairly easy to spot compared to the equipment that other vendors are deploying. Sprint is Samsung's first extremely massive American contract (baring Clearwire) so there  should be no issues in confusing these equipment for another carrier which happens often with Ericsson NV equipment.

      Below are images of Samsung equipment which includes antennas, remote radio units, base stations, and their mounting configurations.
