this tower is being upgraded to LTE. boca raton fl


Recommended Posts

this tower is in boca raton florida off 441 and glades. i was at the best buy near it looking for a new tv an i walked past the tower an saw a truck. i got curiouse an got close an found 3 guys that were playing with what looked like computer server. i didnt want to take a picture of them working an get mad or look weird lol so i didnt. but i did ask one of the guys who was walking back to his truck with pipes which i find odd cause they were cutting pipes an doing a lot of banging too lol. but i asked him if they were installing 4g lte an he told me yes they are. he seemed pissed off maybe things arent going well so i didnt ask when or if they had a time table of when they will be finished. so im here to see if any one has any idea of how long it takes to upgrade a tower to lte. this is my first time seeing people work on it. but it might not be the first time i dont know. if any one could help me thank you in advance.

I spy a bunch of bird nests...

If the birds are protected then they can't really work on the tower and hence why they're mad. If the nests are vacated then probably they're just being rushed and feel unappreciated..

 

 

Just a guess ha

you could be right hahah. the guy had a saw in his hand an it was a saw that i think cuts through metal i for got whats it called. but why would they be cutting pipes an stuff?? an the truck didnt have a name on it like a company name or somthin. i heard erricson is doin the upgrades for sprint. an as for the birds a shot gun with bird shot would solve the problem lol. i didnt get a lte connection when i was near the tower so they might have just started work i guess

Any chance you could get a shot a little further out from under the tower? Hard to distinguish what's what from that angle. I don't see any NV panels yet. From your other pictures, I would expect that Sprint is one of the top two racks there. Can you tell which one they are working on?

they were actually working on the bottom where all the servers were. i asked the guy an they said they were installing lte on this tower. maybe lte software? an i think its a tower used by 3 carriers not just sprint. thats what my friend said but he is not sure an i can get you other pics

Perhaps replacing the cabinets at the base of the tower. I can see that there are several carriers there, it's a little difficult to distinguish which one is Sprint. Clear is at the bottom, I think Sprint is one of the top two. When NV goes up, it will be very clear which one it is.

Another photo from one of Robert's posts. Middle panel. You can see some of the RRUs behind the panels.

Those data speed upgrades are not NV upgrades. The Sprint Network site only tracks the Network Maintanence patches (band aides if you will) that are being pushed out to hold over the network until NV arrives. Completely unrelated to NV.

Very impressive pictures! You can even see right down to the ground wires. Even pick out the 3 separate ACU's mounted on the bottom of the panel for remote downtilt control. Definitely going to book mark these to help answer the question of "what does NV equipment look like?"

    • ...and I just this morning realized you meant Cumberland, MD.  It threw me because there's an Ashby in Cumberland County, VA, which I'm far more familiar with. - Trip
    • I don't have anything solid to offer on Cumberland, but I came down US-15 today and the water tower site in Weber City is now up and running with B2/12/4/71 (035ACCxx), I believe I saw new T-Mobile antennas on the tower at Sprouses Corner which I will try to confirm on Saturday (definitely not running if they're there), and I believe I may have connected to something that got converted in Farmville.  By process of elimination, my guess is Lancer Park, but I hope to find out tomorrow or Saturday. So upgrades are clearly coming.  You may want to see if your local government officials can tell you anything.  Probably not, but can't hurt to ask. - Trip
    • Interesting twist.  Today, I took off for southern Virginia and had my T-Mobile B71 phone (Revvlry on Android 10) and I noticed the GPS was bad as compared to my other two devices on SCP on the dash.  Couldn't get it to clear by toggling the Location Services box, so I quit and restarted SCP. When I did so, it first came up with the bad coordinates, then extremely rapidly zipped through from where it was stuck all the way up to where I was currently, like the coordinates were backlogged and then suddenly flushed out within a few short seconds.  More bizarrely, I noticed the same behavior on two other devices (Pixel 3a and Moto One 5G Ace, both on Android 11) and had to do the same thing to those.  I also dumped my trails on all three, assuming they were all bad by then.  The rest of my devices were correct. I was barreling down the highway at the time, so I couldn't investigate further.  Other than my quoted message above, I've never seen this behavior before, and now it seems to be widespread.  - Trip
    • Does anyone have any updates to the Cumberland/Mineral County area? Specifically looking to get TMHI in Ft. Ashby.
    • Actually, you are correct. It is possible Dish won't take it. Meanwhile both Dish and T-Mobile pretend they don't want it for negotiation purposes.
