New sprint coverage map


Recommended Posts

has anyone noticed that Sprint has changed their coverage map and now include 'Recent' Towers

and 'Future' towers i presume these are they old Nextel iDen sites that they are converting?

They have had that for years.

 

I have seen several future sites but they were later cancelled.

Whose knows they could be back on the table. 16 billion in 2 years is alot of base stations.

 

When NV was first planned out. I think it was 6 billion for the whole network and that included lightsquare spectrum.

They have shown new and future towers for sometime, you just have to be lucky enough to stumble across the right area while zoomed in pretty far. 

 

how do find this map all I get is colored one.

 

You have to be zoomed in pretty far, and be in the right spot to see them. There is not a lot to be found.

Cell sites, guys, sites, not "towers."

Hey man, that's a beautiful tower. I see it during my morning commute daily.

The "panels" terminology drives me nuts as well along with this one.

 

I have no problem with the "panel" terminology.  Each one contains numerous antennas, so you cannot really call the whole an "antenna."  Otherwise, how do you refer to the antennas within the "antenna"?

If you are going to roll your eyes at me, then I will have to send in Bruce McGill from "The Insider"...

To be fair, the maps do show little tower icons.... :P

 

I got suckered into it. I usually say 'sites.'

 

But Digi, you can't convince me to not say 'panels' ... :P

Elements or bands since they do refer to them as multi-band antennas.  I haven't seen any manufacturer, permit, etc refer to them as panels, they always state antennas.  Even the crews I've talked to call them antennas.  I guess I think the same way they do, as a panel usually having a door and houses some sort of junction of cables.  I could show you some pictures of panels that Sprint uses for network vision, they have Corning and AT&T logos on them though ;)

Can't you call them Antenna arrays?

Panel!  Panel!  Panel!

These types of panels are becoming very popular in Phx. My parents had several of them installed last year on their house.  They haven't had a power bill over $9 (yes, nine dollars) since.   And, that's on a 6000+ sq ft house with 3 5-ton air-conditioners set at 75 in the brutal Phoenix summer heat!

    • I was thinking that Dish could be in a pickle with limited low-band.  But forgot they will have n26. Dish needs to also push carriers to support that band as well. I know that is like 14x14.  With 5G, is that something that Dish will be fully able to utilize?
    • Update: Throughout my time in Ireland, I've been on 4G (LTE) via Global Roaming with no issues. Nothing from Sprint/TMo re upgrading service. Hopefully, no bad surprises on my next bill . . .   Installed new TMo SIM in my daughter's phone while here, and she's had no data whatsoever. I had received mixed responses from TMo folks prior to the trip as to whether that was possible.
    • Went up to Woodbury again and it looks like the Archdiocese and NW Spectrum LLC are hampering T-Mobile's ability to expand beyond 40MHz still. Unlike in NYC, Band 41 is still alive and well on Sprint in Orange County. I was seeing 20MHz of Band 41 on both Sprint and T-Mobile. n41 is still at 40MHz unfortunately with no sign of a second n41 carrier anywhere. 
    • Author kinda doesn't know what they're talking about, as they assumed their speeds were n71-only (it's like they half-read the PCMag article they cite). The speeds they're mentioning are 100% from n71 + n66 SDL, which also explains speeds dropping off a cliff when they walk indoors. In fact, Dish has some paired AWS-3 in Spokane, albeit just 5x5, so I wouldn't be surprised if they haven't bothered deploying that and are just doing 71 + n66 SDL (the former at 5x5). May head down to San Marcos and New Braunfels tonight to do some testing. I expect either n71-only or n71 + SDL, not sure which. n71 is 5x5 here as Dish has leased half of their 10x10 to T-Mobile. When that lease expires they'll be at 10x10, and they could get another 10 MHz FD (albeit not contiguous) from speculators if T-Mobile didn't outbid them. Will be interesting to see who buys what when.
