This is in otero county NM ... it right at the state line of nm and Texas on a military base ..the closest LTE tower is in chaparral nm 6.7 miles away, but I really get a low DBm signal on 3G.. so I figured that's would be the tower

He's not saying new towers aren't needed. B26 could also help.

This was in reference to the tower I posted that dead smack on the base .. it show a low signal on the DBM's . So, I thought that tower I posted a pic of was a sprint tower

We do have maps of all Sprint sites in the Sponsors section, have you considered a donation to help the site continue to exist and also get access to those maps?

 

I did find a site that I did not notice before. It appears there is no NV information for this site so it may be fully legacy. It appears to be located next to a water tower and other cell sites. I do not believe it was the site that you pictured.

The information we have specifically indicates the one in the red box.

Well, the one on the left in that image appears to have equipment similar to Sprint NV on it, but as you said it may be AT&T. It is possible that the reason I can't pin-point the Sprint site is because it is still using legacy antennas that I don't recognize, so it may be possible it was the site you originally posted.

Second source also shows that the site in the red box is the one to look at. 

 

Additionally, the taller, now empty looking sites appears to have been a Nextel site at one time.

Could be .. I know that at&t are running 3xca here on base and Verizon is running 2xca T-Mobile no service and sprint 3G only ... would sprint upgrade a site like this to LTE

If the tower provides a signal they should add LTE.

It should be upgraded at some point, though it is odd the coverage map doesn't seem to reflect the existence of this site. I wonder if there haven't been problems getting it upgraded due to it being on military land.

Verizon and at&t had no issues.... their upgrade happened back to back 1 week Verizon the next at&t

It's only a theory. Sprint wasn't doing upgrades in sync with VZ and AT&T. it's possible they collaborated to get crews on the grounds. Sprint has had timing and money issues when it comes to upgrades, which could have made it more difficult to schedule a time to allow crews to come and upgrade the tower.

The only Sprint sites not NV upgraded in my area are on military installations.  It's not likely the military has prohibited their upgrade, but for some reason Sprint have not made these a priority.  It could be related to difficulty.  The difficulty may have been worth it to the others.  But these may be low usage for Sprint.  Interesting though.

Thanks for the replies .. I am getting a call from sprint network team tomorrow .. no one on the customer service level is acknowledging the area as being sprint native coverage all say it's roaming ... so, I will see what they are able to tell me

Hopefully B25 comes to that site as well as B26 when that can happen. Sprint needs to get all their remaining 3G only sites to LTE. People shouldn't have to leave LTE behind when they go places.

I've noticed that a lot of military sites don't show up on official coverage maps.  None of the WSMR show up on coverage.  Many are shown internally as Corporate Network Solutions (CNS).  So it does not surprise me they think there is no coverage there.

Wish is good , cause T-mobile has a lot of mad customers here , cause they have no service at all

Any idea where I could check about the SMR b26 spectrum in Ibez for El Paso ... to see how what's going on with that .. I got guenthers attention so I will see what he tells me , but I would still like a backup source if possible

So, the mini Marco b41 is a more cost affective way of adding b41. Which I'm sure in El Paso we are going to get a lot of these ... so, these sites can only add carriers to b41 , but it can't to carrier aggregation? If the mimi macros are able to do carrier aggregation can they do 3xca ?

Yes it can do 3xca. Thos sites can only do 3carriers. Where the full build sites that cost more can do up to 6 carriers

Ok, got it thanks ... one thing I noticed when I had the s6 edge plus lots of drops to 3G .. now with the galaxy s8 I'm able to hold on to b25 a lot longer which in these areas I'm not dropping to 3G anymore .. is this just the s8 RF performance

    • Thanks for all the help! I called, left a voice message and sent them an email. Unfortunately it looks like they were pretty quick shipping since I already have a tracking number and an ETA of Monday. Hopefully you’re right and it hasn’t actually shipped yet. I am in Oklahoma, so that’s part of why the shipping is so quick to get here. I guess that could mean returns are faster too. So at least there’s that. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
    • That stinks. My area LTE is still 10x10 I wonder if it's because I'm in a Columbia capital area? Mpls Sent from my SM-G975U1 using Tapatalk
    • Yes I did restart app. Also rebooted Moto and turned off other signal apps. No accent. Restarting app also was needed on LG V20 if you want to turn accent off (turn off setting then restart app needed). Thanks
    • Hey thanks!! 🍻 I already saw your report and have been looking into it, I'm trying to get another release pushed out this morning to give you guys another try at everything for me.. the Red Pocket SIM caught my eye as the only oddity, although SCP identifies it as T-Mobile so it should show a magenta line. Did you try restarting the app after enabling the option, just in case? (You shouldn't have to do this but who knows). I'm adding some extra logging that should show me some more details why this might be missing. Stay tuned.
    • Accent seems to work fine on my Sprint LG V20 using Android 8. I have not tested it yet switch to T-Mobile or AT&T or Verizon etc.  No accent on my Moto G7 Power Unlocked and rooted with Android 9 on T-Mobile network using Red Pocket sim. I assume accent is triggered by PLMN, but maybe by sim carrier? Diags and beer money sent for both so you can compare if needed.
