Definitions:

  • Status:  This is the current deployment state of the market.  A full build site is a site that will receive all equipment (including LTE) at initial deployment.  A GMO site is a Ground Mount Site, which initially only goes live with 3G and may not have LTE for some time.  In most Third and Fourth Round markets, GMO sites were started 6-12 months early.
  • NV Sites Accepted: This is the percentage of sites in the market that have have received any Network Vision upgrades.  This is within the entire market boundaries, not just the named city.  Markets often extend far out past the suburbs and include rural communities up to a hundred miles or more away.
  • LTE Sites Accepted: This is the percentage of sites in the market that have have received LTE upgrades.  This is within the entire market boundaries, not just the named city.  Markets often extend far out past the suburbs and include rural communities up to a hundred miles or more away.
  • Original Schedule Completion: This is the month or quarter that the original baseline schedule had planned for all sites to be Network Vision converted within the market.
  • LTE Launched: This is the month Sprint officially launched LTE service in the market. A market launch is usually just a press release, as Sprint has completed sites and made them active well before launch.
  • Anticipated LTE Launch: This is an estimate by S4GRU based on the current production rate of a market and how LTE coverage is filling out.
  • Current Production Rate Completion: This metric is often misunderstood.  This is not when the market will be complete.  It is more a measurement of how fast they are working this month in a specific market.  Production rates can vary wildly from one month to the next.  This date essentially says when the market is expected to be 100% complete with all Network Vision upgrades, based on their current rate of production in that market. Note this has nothing to do with a market having 100% coverage. 100% coverage typically occurs around 50%-60% completion. Note that even Verizon does not have any markets with 100% site conversion.

    • Just mapped at least 8 5G small cells (all 109xxxx gNBs) while driving on the Southern State. They all seem to be n25/n41. I'm pretty sure nearly all of them are upgrades of existing small cells as opposed to new builds but I'm glad to see Crown Castle/T-Mobile hard at work getting midband 5G on all of these. Each of the unpinned gNBs belong to 1-2 small cells. I still can't pin these sites until the Cellmapper devs give us the option to split cells for 5G sites.
    • Their offers have been crap recently, so this is just more evidence to not buy from T-Mobile. 
    • T-Mobile Will Soon Prevent Early Payoff Of Phones Receiving Bill Credits If you finance a phone with T-Mobile it will remain locked until paid off but now you won't be able to pay off early. If you don't currently purchase your phones from the manufacturer here is another reason it might be a good idea.
    • Was in Red Hook again and I swear there are more Link5G sites as there are Verizon, T-Mobile, and AT&T small cells combined in the entire neighborhood. It seemed like every other street I turned down had one installed. Hopefully carriers will start hopping on them soon. Seems like a lot of effort to go through for no one to use them.  — — — — — T-Mobile converted the Sprint site on top of NYU Langone Brooklyn in Sunset Park. I first mapped one sector of it back in November 2023 but I thought it was a small cell so I never pinned it but I ran into another sector today which caught me off guard. I'm unable to find a permit for the conversion so it's definitely a surprise. There's another T-Mobile site 1 block away that T-Mobile initially installed back in 2019 so I'm kinda surprised they're keeping both considering the Sprint conversion is on a much taller building and could potentially provide much better coverage to the entire area.  — — — — —  Old permit for this new install expired but a new one was recently issued. It's gonna be similar to the site at 360 Forman St in Brooklyn Heights. Permit calls for only 3 antennas to be installed so I'm assuming it gonna be Band 2/41/66 and n25/41 only which is a bit of a downgrade from the now decommissioned full build that was on 871 7th Ave but in it's current state the nearest macro is a few blocks away and a small cell at Broadway and 55th is doing a lot of heavy lifting in the area so anything helps.  
    • Still not seeing any ULS postings for pending T-Mobile UScellular merger in Dane county Wisconsin.
