Show us what is at the base. The antennas alone can't tell us much.

Shocking how well it is during the day. The site covers the entire area so well. At night/early morning it will push 200+

Really 200+? That's amazing for that area! Good Job Sprint!

I can see that. I was just recently there and some areas have way improved, most stagnant and consistent with the past.

I heard more B41 is coming online more there. The 5x5 only main reason for the poor results. Hopefully 1st half 2018 will be even better.

Nope. 3 sectors.

They added triband antennas and only attached 2.5 mini macros to it.

Yes 3 sectors 2 antennas.  An antenna is not a new sector unless it has different sector coverage configuration. Those triband antennas have the same sector coverage setup as the 800/1900 hex ports so it's the same sector.

So, was this an capcity upgrade for band 25 ?

No.

As I said in a previous post only 2.5 mini macros are connected to the 2.5 ports of the triband antenna.

That's a area with the C Block. So not surprised it's 10x10. Is that the only carrier or is there a 5x5 carrier from the B Block

Stinks. Do you happen to know how much C Block spectrum they have? Just curious if it's only enough for this 10x10 or possibly a 15x15 Future.

Oh. The map I've seen shows them holding C,B And G Block there. So I thought they could put all the C Block on LTE and keep B Block on CDMA

Yes you are correct about the holdings. However, I don't have the specific date but the C block of 30mhz total was leased to AT&T.  I will have to check the spectrum dashboard if the lease expired and has since returned to sprint.

 

Edit. Obviously something has occurred as the picture posted is in the C block. Also Band 25 G block is deployed down there so it could be that a sliver of the C block has been returned and subsequently the G block has been expanded.
