Network.sprint.com and NV

Recommended Posts

I keep reading on here about network.sprint.com not having anything to do with NV upgrades. I live in the northwest suburbs of Chicago and have a ton of towers on that site that say they are getting additional voice capacity which I assume is an additional voice carrier. Quite a few of these towers now have network vision complete on them and are using the SMR band and a good chunk of them correspond with the voice capacity improvements at network.sprint.com. Is there a chance that the two can be related in areas that nv is going on?

I personally don't say they have anything to do with NV (although I have seen others say that). I like to say they have to do with maintenance upgrades. If a post NV site needs additional voice or EVDO carriers, they will likely show up on network.sprint.com all the same as legacy sites.


I do like people to understand though upgrades shown at network.sprint.com are not an indication of Network Vision starting in a market. People often get excited in non NV markets when they see maintenance upgrades appearing even though these are not a sign of Network Vision or LTE.

    • More on Super Bowl preparations here: https://www.fiercewireless.com/wireless/t-mobile-att-and-verizon-gear-super-bowl Verizon: That said, Verizon will have some hefty gear on hand if it needs to use it, like THOR, the Tactical Humanitarian Operations Response vehicle, as well as THOR’s Hammer and the Mobile Utility Technology Transport (MUTT) police cruiser. Very cool… AT&T: Like Verizon, AT&T is bringing all the tools at its disposal to serve fans and public safety customers during the big game. That includes a flying cell on wheels (COW) and a robotic dog.   There’s a ton of detail on AT&T’s network build here. Great read!
    • This means a significant number of people feel Dish will never pay them back. Dish should have borrowed more money sooner at lower rates.  T-Mobile has been much smarter at this during this merger period.
    • Dang.  Is there I way we can directly get in on that for the next one if Dish is gonna be paying 11.75%?
    • T-Mobile has been building out new rural sites for the last 6-8 months. It may not be as noticeable elsewhere, but we have had 40+ new sites come online in Nebraska. There have been new builds in Iowa, Kansas, and Missouri as well. If you change the site data to display hex values on Cellmapper, look for sites that begin with 05D, or 062 - 063. Those are new sites in the last 6 months.
    • New Vertical Bridge site built for Tmobile near Red River Gorge area.  Maybe T-Mobile is starting to build out new sites and colos in rural areas now...   https://imgur.com/a/Tv3Ge0w
