Lte advanced/800 mhz


Recommended Posts

Clearwire is releasing lte advanced on four 5x5 mhz carriers, right?

 

Are these lte advanced towers going to go on all sprint towers, or will it replace the WiMax towers that Clearwire currently uses?

 

Also, the lte 800, I recall reading that it's only going to cover 80% sprint towers, is that approximately all of the old Nextel sites or are we talking sprint sites as of current?

 

Thanks

They will deploy on a single 20MHz channel.

Clearwire LTE is going to go on existing Wimax towers and be deployed in areas where sprint or other companies need them to be in. Most clearwire sites are apparently having upgrades on their backhaul which is resulting in much higher wimax speeds these days. So basically, if you're in an area with preexisting wimax coverage then you'll most likely get some sort of clearwire TDLTE coverage in the future.

 

800mhz goes on every tower. They just need to hook it up to existing RUU's. If you look at the pictures around here, you'll see that they already have the 800mhz "plugs" on the panels but they're not connected yet.

Toledo Ohio only has 1 or 2 towers for 200k plus for WimaX...they won't be here

Most. Does not include the protection sites which toledo appears to have.

 

I'm speaking to the 70 or so cities that clearwire actually "deployed" in...

Toledo does only have one protection site on Detroit ave or better seen on interstate 75 for clearwire bringing there LTE to Toledo I don't think they will honestly need to with Nextel towers on 800 it should be good and if the system gets overloaded just add more carriers with nv they are able to do this, and if they do one tower would be fine all it's helping for is if things get to croweded it'll off load to that

There are numerous articles, even on sprint.com, that detail Clearwire's plans for 4G LTE regarding Sprint. Clearwire's goals are similar to the troublesome Lightsquared, they're in the business of wholesale. They plan to overlay Sprint's 4G LTE network in large markets where Sprint might have trouble meeting data demands. Clearwire has large spectrum assets they can use to deliver 20MHz x 20MHz in the top markets. Clearwire's frequency runs on higher frequency around 2.4GHz

I cant find the article from one of the Sprint Execs where he talked about about the sooner than expected decommissioning of 9600 IDEN towers this year which allows them to use CDMA on 800MHz this year and then LTE on 800MHz next year in some areas. Being part of Sprint Cust Care I can only talk about whats officially announced

If Clearwire's wholesale operation takes off then they might elect to put LTE on all their sites. So far, their main wholesale customer is Sprint and Sprint only needs offload capacity in certain markets.

    • Sounds like an awesome project—keep us posted on how it’s going! Also—if you’re able to figure out logging, I can work with you to get the data uploaded to SignalCheck. 
    • Yesterday, I saw a post on Facebook from an old friend about the Evolve III Maestro, a $60 laptop (at Micro Center) that apparently has an LTE modem in it.  Specifically, the Quectel EC25-AF*.  The nearest Micro Center was sold out of new ones, but offered open box at $48.  So for $51 after tax, I walked out this morning with one.  An absolute steal. I backed up the Windows product key and then put Kubuntu 22.04 on it.  I spent a lot of time today trying to get the build tools installed so I could get the wifi module installed and running, and once I did that, I pretty quickly got to sending it modem commands, which I've never done before.  I don't have a SIM in it yet, but it does seem to function as it should.  (I figured out the command to get Timing Advance values out of it, but without a SIM, I doubt it would have such values.) Now I'm trying to puzzle out how to write some kind of script or small program to use it for logging purposes.  I think I've worked out how to send commands to it from bash using socat, but I need to pick specific commands to run.  I'd actually like to replace some of my phones with this if I can get it to record cells, with GPS, and cycle through a set of bands repeatedly.  My current phone collection consists of 9 phones other than my main S21FE, and they require babysitting while I'm logging.  It'd be nice to pare that down to a more reasonable number and let the computer do the work, hopefully in the back seat with less babysitting. - Trip ===== * Per the spec sheet, it supports B2/4/5/12/13/14/66/71.  That'd cover all of Verizon and US Cellular LTE, all but B29/30 on AT&T, and all but B41 and Sprint Keep on B26 for T-Mobile. 
    • More bizarre.  I just updated my other Ace without issue. - Trip  
    • Looking over the data so far, bidders can go back and reopen bidding on licenses that appeared settled. In the list below, not all counties are listed and only states with excess demand.  Typically 3 licenses per county for rural areas and some urban areas. Here is how many licenses per state had demand greater than supply: State count AK 3 AL 14 AR 3 AS 6 AZ 9 CA 12 CO 76 DE 6 FL 10 GA 66 GU 3 HI 3 IA 99 ID 47 IL 39 IN 43 KS 231 KY 23 LA 14 MA 5 MD 16 ME 1 MI 86 MN 9 MO 79 MP 12 MS 73 MT 69 NC 26 ND 109 NE 18 NH 13 NJ 6 NM 51 NV 24 NY 13 OH 29 OK 9 OR 30 PA 24 PR 25 SC 20 SD 83 TN 76 TX 236 UT 49 VA 22 VT 5 WA 65 WI 59 WV 26 WY 29
    • Looks like Dish has already taken back the 5x5 of n71 they leased to T-Mobile, and instead of narrowing NR here T-Mobile has gone for broke and made 600 NR-only. They can afford to do that here thanks to B12, and don't need to do that west of here because they weren't leasing 600 from Dish. Does mean that Dish is 10x10 for n71 here (which explains the 30ish Mbps upload peak I saw yesterday). Darned speculators hogging the remainder of the band So T-Mobile is running 140 + 15x15 MHz sub-6 NR here. AT&T is 40 + 15-45x15-45 (15x15 n5, occasional 15x15 DSS on n2 and/or n66 though I haven't seen both in the same area). VZW is 60 + 15x15, with the latter being n2 DSS. Wonder how soon VZW will try n48.
