I've heard work recently started in this market. This market has a lot of GMO sites (Ground Mounted RRUs). This work tends to go faster. We probably will start having some In Progress and possibly even accepted sites in the next month or so.

Sorry, I don't have any updates, but do you really have a Renegade? I loved that phone!

 

I do have the Renegade and also really enjoy it. I have broken countless of them over the years. They all have broken at the hinge. If there was a rugged smartphone that could put up with the crap I have put my phone through I would grab one.

 

No 800 :(

I searched high and low for a rugged sprint flip phone and finally got one with the renegade. Then I immediately got an office job and went to a smartphone soon after.

 

I heard that there will be a LTE direct connect smartphone in the dura___ line coming soon. Hopefully that will fit the bill for you. I always wished sprint would get the Casio gzone phones, but they just stay with big red. They seem like they are old hardware anyway.

Wondering if there are any upsates for the Othello Area? Or any news at all?

 

Some GMO sites should start going live in the next month or so in this market. Full build sites should start in the Spring or early Summer.

Inside information that by the end of the year (Summer, Fall) network vision will be complete followed by LTE in eastern washington region. Wimax was skipped by sprint and i cant wait to get it here.

 

Any news or inside information can be posted here

giving that spokane is the 2nd most populated city in washington we should have got it!

The Seattle metro area is 4.4 million people (2012 census). Metro "Market" size determines PoPs covered, Seattle metro is 13th largest in the nation.

 

Spokane, WA. metro is 81st at 674,000.

No, your market is not even close to 41 percent complete. We map completed and in progress sites, plus we long ago mapped every Sprint site in every market. And the Inland Northwest has no completed LTE sites yet and only 25 completed CDMA1X/EV-DO 1900 sites out of about 150 total sites in the market.

If you become an S4GRU sponsor, you can view those maps and see the progress taking place in your market.

Thats good to know thanks!

 

From what i saw and what was explained to me the sites for network vision were 41% complete however that have not turned the switch on (except moscow) the towers due to the fact the are building from the most outside towers to in and they want to prevent calls from being dropped due to if someone was driving and got switched to another tower it would drop the call because of different hardware on the new towers. Also i guess after they flip on the tower they dont launch LTE till fiber is put into the tower.

All the sites completed to date in the Inland Northwest market are GMO sites. Full build sites should be starting soon, but have not started yet. http://s4gru.com/index.php?/blog/1/entry-340-sprint-deploys-special-ground-mount-option-network-vision-sites-in-some-low-capacity-and-high-engineering-locations/

Well my Renegade is being retired. The radio is on the fritz cycling between service/no service once a second. Sprint tried to pull information from my phone across the network and was unable to access it so they are swapping it out for a DuraMax. As long as it works I will be happy but I don't expect it to be anything like the Renegade which has been one of the best phones I have had on Sprint. It will be sad to pack it up and ship it back when the new phone gets here.

 

Sorry no news on this area outside of what has been posted already.

    • Cool find! Been there since 2018 according to Cellmapper. The only other time I've seen them leave up a temp site like this for a long period of time was when a nearby site is temporarily inoperable like the one in Red Hook Houses. That doesn't seem to be the case here and it's pretty much a GMO site at this point. My best guess is that T-Mobile wanted to put a site there to fill in coverage but because it's on LGA's grounds getting the actual permission to do so is extremely complex so they worked out a deal with the Port Authority to put up a COW in the meantime.  
    • Would this be a T-Mobile COW outside LGA Terminal A? eNB 49106 seems to line up to its position, plus the arm for the trailer to hook onto a truck says T-Mobile. Here is the NYC streetcar view the image was pulled from.     For all the years I have been monitoring the DAS, I have never gotten -55 or better, even after passing by every antenna in a station that is deep enough to have 0 outside macros reaching in. The SNR is still 20+, so its probably designed that way on purpose.
    • From a few days back: https://www.fiercewireless.com/wireless/deutsche-telekom-aims-50-t-mobile-ownership-2024 DT Chief Executive Timotheus Hoettgas said buying the majority stake in T-Mobile US was the group's most important strategic project at present, according to Reuters. He said that stake should top 50% much sooner than its previous projection of 2024. Earlier this year, DT paid $2.4 billion to SoftBank Group to increase its stake in T-Mobile US to 48.4%.
    • 5.9GHz finally approved by a court: https://www.fiercewireless.com/tech/court-upholds-fccs-decision-59-ghz.  This should be added to 5GHz wi-fi.  considering wi-fi 7 will be included in the qualcomm x70 and related SOCs, doubtful they will be able to add this now, unless designed to be added later.  5.9GHz will given us a third 160MHz unique carrier iirc, a major improvement.
    • waiting for about 400 with demand > supply, or 95% to look again in some detail.  Until then : https://www.sashajavid.com/FCC_Auction108.php#county_details_table_overlay
