Good to see Upstate NY getting getting more involved in the NV LTE party with the Binghamton / Syracuse markets being announced, joining the recently announced Albany market.

 

Please report any site work you notice or any LTE signals that go live here, I will try to keep the OP updated with new information.

Is there a way on this website to see when specific towers or cities are being updated?

it's been a month since the announcement of LTE but I have not seen any difference and I drive around much of the Upstate NY/Albany Area. I have a S3 and my LTE antenna but not even a hint of a tower being updated?

What announcement of LTE? There has been no announcement regarding LTE for upstate New York.

 

Robert made an announcement that work had started, but work has JUST started. It will take several months for there to be enough towers completed for any real LTE coverage to be available. Currently there are no towers with LTE capabilities in upstate New York.

 

If you would like to see which towers have been completed, you can become a sponsor of the site. There is a lot more information available in the sponsors section.

It will not launch in the next 90 days. However, they may start work in the next 90 days.

That exactly what they said....probably not until February or March....but she did say we might see LTE testing after about 90 days....can't wait to see what the speeds are like here....they probably will be good because we hardly have a lot of Sprint customers here....

Excellent! It's the 6th now, any idea how that went?

 

Any more information on the Greater Binghamton area would be very much appreciated :)

 

GMO sites in the Binghamton area are already under way.

They might have LTE based on the Sprint upgrades map. But i dont know if its different for upstate but i notices that when it has 2 speed upgrades it has LTE take a look i found 2 towers on the map with 2 speed upgrades k3lj14.png

 

Two speed upgrades doesn't mean live LTE, unfortunately. But it probably means that upgraded backhaul has been hooked up to two technologies. Or two T1 lines have been added.

Hi there. Any news at all on Rochester, NY? Thanks.

 

Rochester is in it's own Sprint market. Work at GMO sites is beginning soon. Full build sites will not likely begin until late Spring/early Summer.

Thanks, Robert. Sounds good. I assume the maps available to sponsors will show when the GMO sites light up? (I'll be sending some cash soon)

 

Yes. We have a map that shows sites as they are accepted from Sprint. Sometimes we can even get them posted the same day they are inspected.and signed off, but it may take a few days to appear in some instances.

    • Another SCP beta is rolling out now, with some bugfixes as usual but also some fun new options to test: Non-standalone 5G-NR cells can now display Site Notes. This feature works in the same manner as how neighbor cell notes are displayed, requiring a PCI and your device's location. This option is enabled by default. As is the case with neighbor cell notes, you cannot edit NSA site notes directly unless there is an NCI being reported (which I have never seen); it uses the previously recorded standalone log entries. Like neighbor notes, if a cell has been previously logged but there is no note, you will see the distance information only.   Logging cells that are not reporting a valid PLMN is now possible. This option is disabled by default, but if you enable it along with two other options (log sites with missing GCI/NCI and to log sites with missing TAC), you should begin logging most NSA 5G-NR cells. A PCI is needed at a minimum, which is not always reported depending on your device and network factors. ("Sites" will be renamed to "cells" on the Preferences menu in the next update.)   Users can enable an option to display LTE cells above 5G-NR cells in the app if they choose to do so. This option is disabled by default. Should help improve the readability of your screen if you have NSA 5G-NR cells constantly appearing/disappearing. Please give these options a try and let me know if you notice any issues.. thanks!
    • Not yet. We probably won't see one submitted until construction on the new building is substantially complete. 
    • Yes, that is where the site used to be. All the antennas were removed. I hope they add a new site soon. Have any permits been submitted for a new site?
    • Looks like there's a slightly taller building going up next door to where the decommissioned site used to be. Taking a look at StreetView, T-Mobile likely decommissioned the site because the east facing sector would blocked by the new building. If I had to guess, T-Mobile has already agreed to move to the roof of the new building and is just waiting for it to be completed to install the site there. What they should've done is just rearrange the sectors in the meantime but it seems like T-Mobile just bit the bullet and decommed the tower in the short term. — — — — — A permit was issued for a Sprint conversion at 150 Prospect Park West, finally filling in what is T-Mobile's largest coverage gap in Park Slope. Verizon is collocated on that building and AT&T has placed small cells along Prospect Park West to fill in coverage there while T-Mobile struggled using two sites, one at Grand Army Plaza at the far north and another at Bartel Pritchard Square to the far south.  
    • Yep, you can see the site was taken down between Aug 2022 and Apr 2023.
