Well on the Sprint conference call this morning they confirmed 2.5 will be in all current Sprint sites plus Clearwire and they'll be building out more 2.5GHz coverage than there current 38K sitesZoning and such are being done now along with negotiations with their partners who'll be deploying the new 2.5GHz spectrum. They expect it to move faster as back haul should be mostly in place at all sites. More information will be provided as they get further along with planning.

Yep, like I said.

TMO better expand fiber to all their 54k towers because their urban advantage just got annihilated.

Next year all phones released will support all three bands. But they backtracked when asked specifically about Apple's iPhone. I think it'll support it and he realized he slipped up by saying all devices..

Just visit http://investors.sprint.com and listen to the call from this morning. You'll hear the information provided in response to a question.

Just listened. Begin zoning, leasing and documentation completed.  Working with the vendors for 2.5.  Several thousand sites up based on Clearwire.  However, through 2014 most sites will be able completed faster.

 

% of 38K sites. Close to 100% of sites are expected and truthfully more.  Sprint sites, Clearwire sites and more. Interesting.

 

I hope they work with the OEM's to get these antenna's out for the markets that already have LTE and incorporate going forward.  Very exciting.

Elfman said the company will have a few tri-band handsets in the fourth quarter that will support the company's spectrum holdings in the 2.5 GHz, 1.9 GHz and 800 MHz bands. Beginning in 2014, all of the devices Sprint sells will support the 2.5 GHz band. But Elfman said that comment should be taken with regard to all devices except for the iPhone, which he declined to comment on.

Sprint really just might be adding some good competition next year.

If you listened to the call, he couldn't back track faster.  It was quite funny. 

 

Edit: If you know the phone is going to work, why not throw the promise out there.

My guess is Apple demands to be sole source for any iPhone announcements.

I am very glad to hear about nationwide rollout of LTE 2.5.  I always thought deploying LTE 2.5 as a "hotspot" in only select sites was not a great enough use of the vast 2.5 spectrum resources.  I always thought that every Sprint site could always use that LTE 2.5 extra capacity to offload traffic especially since we can't predict the traffic profile demand in the next 5-10 years.  I really hope they deploy LTE 2.5 on all 38,000 Sprint Network Vision sites and all ~14,000 Clearwire sites.

It is approximately 5,500 Clearwire sites colocated with Sprint.  Or, 40% OF 14,000.

No. According to the call, just data TD-LTE/WiMax.

Microwave works just fine for all backhaul needs for the foreseeable future.

There is Fixed microwave in the US at 10.55 to 10.6 ghz - 10.6 to 10.68 ghz - 10.7 to 11.7 ghz.

 

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/4/45/United_States_Frequency_Allocations_Chart_2003_-_The_Radio_Spectrum.jpg

10,700 to 11,700 MHz is the 11 GHz band.

10,550 to 10,680 MHz has a maximum channel with of 5 MHz, making it useless for telecommunications.

 

Here is the request to make 500 MHz at 10 GHz unlicensed: http://apps.fcc.gov/ecfs/comment/view;jsessionid=QDLTRQ4XJVlB2zs1j8JZ6QqM9H2QfSJSG21GThprcpYhMX7X1t4H!1291806534!-1272756975?id=6017338776

    • By site ID do you mean cell ID in the IPhone? If yes then sort of but you have to work to match the sites up. IPhone shows the cell ID in decimal (base 10) and the maps use androids and Sprints GCI in Hexadecimal (base 16). So you would have to convert the decimal number you have to hex.  I don't know if dkyeager is going to add a column for GCI in Decimal for you to make it easier. But it would still be difficult because Cell ID would fall in a range for a site like 140513792-141845060 for 086012xx.  How I got the range with google sheets if a column where to be added W4 is a place holder for the GCI column.  =CONCATENATE(HEX2DEC(CONCAT(W4,"00")),"-",HEX2DEC(CONCAT(W4+1450,"44")))
    • Pulled up field test and I looks like I’m bouncing between a B41 and a B25 site with db strength over -115db all the time.  Which makes sense why my coverage is trash. Does the site ID correlate to the maps on the sponser side? (I still haven’t been upgraded yet)
    • I would think that 25 upload along with 41+41 download would be the best possible combination. Maybe there is some type of issue with this that I am not aware of.  It just seems to me that this combination would make band 41 so much more valuable. This needs to be active everywhere and the sooner the better unless there is some issue that we do not know about.There should be plenty of upload bandwidth available especially with 10X10  band 25.
    • Running iOS, iPhone XS which is why I switch back to sprint. Their deal was insane. So no, I’m not running SCP.
