Anyone have a guess on the average time Sprint blocks a site thats complete? I know if its the first one in an area it will be longer. What's the longest a site has been complete but blocked?

 

Side question dose the sponsor section have a launched and working list.

 

Im getting real close to sending some cash. I would have already but things ave been tight last few years. Ok that and Im just cheap.

There are a sites complete list that Rob updates every week in the sponsors section, there is also a running list of markets but does not require sponsorship but you get a lot of great info with becoming one.. donating 20 bucks would be good but we you can offer Rob would be welcomed

We had some sites complete in early March but were blocked until Mid July. That was the longest. However, I don't think that's going to be typical anymore.

 

It is so variable though, its not really possible to answer your question. Early sites will likely be blocked longer than later sites within a market. Sprint doesn't block some sites ever, probably in error. However, most sites are blocked after Sprint accepts the site from the OEM until a market is pre launched or launched.

    • 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.
    • Came across another Crown Castle Solutions multi-tenant oDAS node in Brooklyn. Located at 40.7002286, -73.9612666. Nothing on T-Mobile or AT&T so I'm assuming these are all Verizon nodes that Crown Castle is anticipating another carrier will hop on down the line.
