How to Spot New NV Backhaul (At least in MI)


Recommended Posts

At least in Michigan, this is how they have been bringing fiber from the backhaul provider to the new cabinets.  This frequently, but not always, shows up before cabinets.  Backhaul is never installed before this structure is present.

 

Often times, this is installed much before the new cabinets are.  In all cases, the new cabinets are installed with their backs to this structure.

 

I have picked this site because it does not even have new cabinets installed yet:

Here is a similar installation after the cabinets have been installed but not yet connected:

In this case, the fiber isn't even there yet.  There is only a conduit that leads into that box marked "Fiber", taped off, with only a pull string in it, that leads to outside of the fenced area:

I think you're right. I also find this all around Toledo Ohio as well. Thanks for sharing

Not trying to rain on any of the excitement by any means.....  if you do not see this at the site do not get discouraged as there are many ways for backhaul to be run.  Some sites I've watched twice a day to and from work with absolutely zero backhaul work observed yet they are active LTE sites today.  This site does not have microwave backhaul on it either.

Yes, but except for very rare cases, and unless using microwave backhaul, this combination of boxes and frame is installed just before the cabinets.  If it is not installed before they arrive, it is installed before they are moved to final position.

    • Visited a Sprint-converted-to-Tmobile store last  week because my GNote 20 5G suddenly had a small cluster of stuck pixels that wouldn't go away (tried 3 apps that ran "tests" and made it flicker like crazy)..so they replaced my screen - and battery.  Something didn't get plugged back in, or came loose...now I can literally watch the SCP app bounce from B25, B26, B41 back to B25...all within 5-6 seconds. Try to make a call with 5 bars and it suddenly drops to zero bars and the call doesn't complete. Headed back to store tomorrow to see if they can fix it... But beware the "techs"...doesn't sound like they check everything like they should. I was 3 miles away last week after they replaced my screen when i realized they kept my damn stylus and I had to turn around and go back!!
    • Just got apprised by my biz rep friend that I'm now TNX eligible. I'll switch over if I'm allowed to go back. NR CA via SA would be cool.
    • Drove out to Mt. Arlington, NJ and Kenvil, NJ and was surprised by how good T-Mobile's coverage was both on the drive there and while out and about. I was on 5G what seemed like 98% of the the drive out there. I only noticed one time when it dropped down to LTE for less than a mile before picking up 5G and staying on it for the rest of the drive.  I was even more impressed by performance within both towns as speeds and coverage were similar to, if not better than Verizon in most areas I went. This includes indoors. While at a restaurant, Verizon dropped down to 1 bar of LTE and occasionally lost signal completely while my T-Mobile line bounced between 1-2 bars of LTE without ever dropping completely in the same location. Looking at Cellmapper, almost every site in the area has every Band 2/12/66/71 and n71 so T-Mobile has tons of capacity for this area.
    • Yeah, we're definitely getting LTE and 5G on 600MHz down in the depths of the building now, but it's slow and congested.  I'd much rather have LTE on PCS, even if there's no 5G on the DAS!
    • You're welcome! Curious what you hear back from the DAS people or T-Mobile about this. T-Mobile's 600 MHz via TNX has really improved my indoor coverage/speeds vs. Sprint's 800 MHz coverage.
