I'm not sure which antenna this is, but they only have one antenna up per sector they are adding another one

This antenna is a 4x4 800 + 4x4 1900 antenna. If they are adding another antenna it will be for L2500.

Ok that's what I was thinking.. thanks for the clarification, I'm curious to see if they add a m-mimo antenna it will be the first one I've seen if so, I drive by this tower to and from my way to work so I'll definitely get another picture once the other ones get mounted.

Definitely share a picture when you can!

New tower in Corona (Kellogg Park) on a decommissioned Nextel Site. This area had B25 which was very unstable, a few weeks ago B26 was turned on and it helped with LTE data but the addition of this site will provide better service for Sprint Customers.

Wow, four antennas per sector including a M-MIMO antenna? I don't I've ever seen a setup like that. I wonder if it's some sort of super high capacity site.

I can only recall seeing only one 4-sector Sprint site ever in my travels.  It was in Los Lunas, NM.  I have seen a few Clearwire 4 sector sites though.  The put a few on building rooftops where extra capacity was needed.

It isn't a four-sector site, it's a three-sector site with four antennas per sector.

Interesting how they have a M-MIMO unit plus three more antennas. One per band?

OOPS.  Mis-read.  :dazed:

Yes I saw those but this one just looks different to me than those. 
Not really.

It's the same type octoport (not same model) with 2x800 radios + 2x1.9 (plus RF combiner) feeding it.

You're right I'm just over thinking it lol

Yep! You're going to see a lot of them. Lots of carriers now upgrading to these units to support 4x4/2 low band configurations!

    • Here's the spectrum breakdown by band. There's some 2.5 in there as well. The remaining spectrum is definitely enough to keep running FWA on while finding a buyer, and since the towers aren't conveying with the subs and spectrum there's nothing stopping USCellular from competing with T-Mobile on FWA until Verizon or AT&T decide the spectrum is valuable enough to take off TDS's hands. If they go that route, I wouldn't be surprised if FWA gets rebranded under TDS.
    • Transaction Details and Financial Profile T-Mobile will pay approximately $4.4 billion for the assets being acquired from UScellular in the transaction in a combination of cash and up to $2.0 billion of debt to be assumed by T-Mobile through an exchange offer to be made to certain UScellular debtholders prior to closing. To the extent any debtholders do not participate in the exchange, their bonds will continue as obligations of UScellular and the cash portion of the purchase price will be correspondingly increased. Following the closing of the transaction, UScellular will retain ownership of its other spectrum as well as its towers, with T-Mobile entering into a long-term arrangement to lease space on at least 2,100 additional towers being retained. T-Mobile does not expect the transaction to impact the company’s 2024 guidance or 2024 authorized shareholder return program. T-Mobile expects this transaction will yield approximately $1.0 billion in effective total opex and capex annual run rate cost synergies upon integration, with total cost to achieve the integration currently estimated at between $2.2 billion to $2.6 billion. The company plans to reinvest a portion of synergies toward enhancing consumer choice, quality and competition in the wireless industry. The transaction, which is subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions and receipt of certain regulatory approvals, is expected to close in mid-2025.
    • The way I heard it, these were for sites that T-Mobile would not be keeping, and presumably is how they would handle decommissioning the equipment from them.  This would presumably happen because they're already on the tower or on an adjacent tower.  For example, in Keysville, VA, T-Mobile is on a tower directly adjacent to the existing US Cellular-owned tower. https://maps.app.goo.gl/kefNy451QXYFSqi5A T-Mobile at left; at right is the US Cellular-owned tower with both US Cellular and Verizon gear on it. - Trip
    • My gut opinion is they are waiting for technology improvements. C-band is seeing some of those emerge now which will extend its useful range and carrying capacity.  Given it current short range, 24GHz is best for places where people are seated in sizeable numbers, although I would not rule out business pico cells. Of course, Verizon is using mmWave small cells quite well for FWA by placing them outside large apartment buildings that only allow one ISP with outrageous charges. UScellular and some Verizon have been using it to do the job of microwave links to preserve licences (4 needed per county).
    • Looks like T-Mobile is consolidating around 24GHz for mmWave. Curious to know what their plans are for that.
