Would like to confirm an upgraded tower


Recommended Posts

I found a Tower in Bixby Ok today that appears to be upgraded. If i can confirm that this is a Sprint site that will make it the first tower that i have seen with an upgrade from Sprint in the area.

I took a picture of the tower (base station is surrounded by large privacy fence). It is located no more than 2 football fields from a Sprint store.

 

The location of the Tower is near E 106th St in Bixby. Just off Memorial.

 

Standing near the tower i was able to get speeds of 1.7Mb down and 0.8 up ( that is insane for Sprint around tulsa)

 

Hopefully you guys can help me confirm that this is a Sprint tower!

If I had to guess I would say the bottom rack is sprint (no upgrades yet). Hard to tell for sure on my phone.

If this is in fact a Sprint site, I do not see any NV equipment on this tower.

It's probably a Verizon 4G lte tower.

this is a old nextel, Current 4G verizon tower. They just completely did the 4G over the summer or verizon, It's like 100 ft away from me lol

I see US Cellular (I think) panels. They are quite fat and stubby looking but they have no RRUs or under panel cabling. I also have seen a number of sites that look like this one around broken arrow and gotten excited but the key is no RRUs so it is probably a US Cellular site that might have Sprint collocated on the same site.

 

Edit: My reasoning for calling them US Cellular panels is that they are new, US Cellular had to add new 700Mhz panels for their LTE network which went live a few months ago, and US Cellular doesn't use RRUs (which these panels do not have).

    • 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
