Are you certain that's new? That looks like a PCS only antenna. Unless there is a SMR capable antenna there as well, I don't see why that would have been installed, if it is in fact a Sprint antenna.

Not sure what you mean by that. Nokia is still there. Ericsson was the original and continued provider of B25 and B26 equipment for your area, and now provides B41 equipment as well. Where is the NV (B25/26) antenna?

Sprint co location taking place in El Paso.. I’ll get better pics, but I hope it’s not a band 25 only set and received band 41/26 later.. hope they add it all to the site

No it appears they're using 16 port antennas, so tri-band. M-MIMO antennas will be separate and much smaller.

Doesn't appear so but they do have two hybrid cables snaking up the tower. Second hybrid cable is usually used for 2.5 so keep an eye out in the near future for an 8T8R RRUS82 setup or AR6468.

El Paso and Las Cruces are night and day from when I was there a little over a year ago, especially Las Cruces.

I believe my phone actually picked up B26 in Las Cruces, at least signal check displayed that. I’ll be back there in February, I’ll verify if it was a true hit on B26. B41 runs at 40+ Mbps and B25 at 20+ Mbps, hardly any slow spots in Las Cruces.  I imagine El Paso still has some bad areas, but at least around Bowie Bakery I had useable service whereas before it would just timeout.

Yeah doesn't look like there is any B41 at this point. Where is this site exactly? Any live signals yet?

4652 Barney St, El Paso, TX 79905. The site is close to the university medical hospital where sprint has the DAS inside.. no signals live yet, but will help fill in coverage much needed. I guess sprint will return at a later time to add band 41

Sprint is now done ripping out the equipment that was there prior and adding this new thicker panel on all 3 sectors
