What's different about Shentel that Robert doesn't get info from his Sprint sources about upgrades? Is it not part of Sprint? If now why do we care if they get LTE towers?

Shentel runs and owns the network in a small area of the country. This is branded as Sprint and you as a customer have ubiquitous access between Sprint and Shentel areas. Sprint does all their marketing/support, Shentel maintains the network. It covers parts of MD/VA/PA. They are one of the last remaining Sprint "affiliate" markets.

 

Robert obvoiusly gets information from somewhere within Sprint. Since Sprint doesn't own the network in Shentel areas, and Shentel is in control of the network here, he doesn't get that information. Shentel is working with Alc-Lu on the upgrade so those are the only two sources of potential information. I care about the Sprint network in this area, since that is where I reside?

Adding to that, Robert has said before that he has 0 sources within shentel and rely mainly on member observations. As shentel is an affiliate of sprint and maintains its own hardware / towers, his sprint sources have nothing on that specific region/market..

    • New oddity since the Feb security patch and a carrier services upgrade, no matter if Wifi is turned on or off, I'm seeing a Wifi 4 connection to an unknown ssid.  Airplane mode, etc didn't get rid of it. Connecting to my home wifi (which turned into Wifi 5) then disconnecting resolved the issue. Not sure where/why the ghost was coming from
    • Digging permits for fiber/power pulled by T-Mobile. American Tower sites are just easy to look up since we can find where they are easy enough.
    • Where do you get new tower plans for American Tower? Do they show on the American Tower Site Locator map?    Also, here’s a map of permits across Northwest Ohio (Lucas County) if anyone’s interested 😁 https://www.google.com/maps/d/u/2/edit?mid=1-qgOcMVOnqW4b9-HhUDc7AGxbRLqn48&usp=sharing
    • That's a decent number of new sites. Nebraska is likely the oddest market in the country, as T-Mobile didn't exist here until a few years ago. Until last summer, their footprint didn't really extend much out of Omaha, Sprint had a much larger footprint. But I'd like to think that their aggressive expansion here is a signal that they intend to follow through on their rural expansion plans. Given the number of American Tower sites that we know they are targeting across NE, KS, MO, IA, AR and IL, it does seem that they have an expansion plan ready to go. Unfortunately we haven't done any digging for the OH area so I don't have any details there for you.
    • Here are the new sites in the Toledo area from the last few years. All of these are Sprint conversions, and they still have a few more Sprint sites to convert
