I definitely did not connect to that site I can say that much. Why must u be the only one who gets to see the magic beast .

Ive been blessed by the S4GRU Gods!!! 

 

Also helps to be obsessed with SCP persistent notification and constantly looking for antennas.

Same here. I've found 3 8T8R sites in the Boston area in the past week alone. I thought I'd never be the one. As far as I know, I got the highest speed on an 8T8R site so far at 71Mbps.

When you mention park, do you mean park ave or central park west?

clarification I meant central park west! I did run some speed test but they were pretty much in line with the medium speeds or the network. Not peak at least at the central park west location. When I ran a quick test on 43rd between Broadway and 8th I hit 30 down 17 up. So different load and more band 41 sites online in that vicinity. According to scp

17 up? It's possible that they were running it in a different downlink:uplink ratio.

I just looked back at my results and I misspoke it was 30 and 10.34 to be exact... My mistake for trying to reply off the top of my head. Just checked my log again.

on the new iPhone 6 Plus I'm either getting B26 or B41 every time I check.

 

Is this positive?

 

I remember on the 5S I couldn't ever get off B25.

 

Now it's the opposite. I can't seen to get B25.

 

Should I worry?

I'm really confused about something.

 

As people upgrade to the newest devices, it seems that the phones are prioritizing B26 and B41

 

Won't that eventually clog up bandwidth like it did on B25 because nobody will be using B25 anymore except for older devices

To illustrate, B41 is like driving on the NJ turnpike. B25 is the FDR and B26 is the West side Hwy. B41 will be hard to congest with the vast amount of bandwith available.

Perfect analogy for our tristate friends that drive.

The main reason why you're not picking up Band 25 is that the network is trying to alleviate capacity on it. Band 25 was over capacity. It never got as bas as Chicago but it was pretty close. We got lucky that Clear had a pretty dense network here and it was widespread. NYC has Band 41 in so many places now because of it.

      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.

    • Another Verizon C-band site, this time there appears it appears to be connected. eNB 84416  
    • I found this tower interesting too, but I think its an RFS panel next to that 6449. It's usually RFS+6488/6449 for Ericsson markets, Commscope+AAHF/AEHC for Nokia markets. Here is a similar setup, this time in Manhattan, eNB 45627. Looks like the same panel to me.   I am to blame for B41 not showing up on this tower. The eNB for B41 is located, but hidden, since no cells are shown. I passed this tower recently, and the J5 Pro I use for mapping B12/41 had a GPS glitch, and registered trails too far west, but parallel to Kings Hwy. With the trails and sector spread being too far west, I deleted the cells, with the intention of remapping B41 on this tower within the next month, as I will be in the neighborhood then. I'll make sure to add B12/71 too, which I haven't mapped for this tower at all. I think this tower was one of those midband only sites that finally got the full spectrum deployment. I could be wrong, but I don't think those antennas are still active. From the May 2021 view of Google Maps, all the new panels for that sector are at the edge of the building, with the other 2 sectors also getting updated, but they haven't changed positions. Wouldn't make sense to keep the old panels though, as they no longer have a purpose.
    • Band 41 Upgrades in progress in the Rapid City SD/Black Hills market as well as info on Sprint site transitions by EOY......we shall see. Hopefully this will be paired with NEW sites as T-Mobile is still at least 29 sites short of the other 2 in the Black Hills area....and DISH is starting to move in with sites. 
    • Dish moving into the Black Hills of South Dakota.......have seen 3 permits so far. Also, their are 5 NB-IOT sites that were put in back in 2019 that were basically part of a spectrum hold promise. I assume these sites will be transitioned as well.
