Where did my Nextel antennas go?

Recommended Posts

I work for a large university.  Several years ago, three sets of Nextel iDEN antennas were added to the roof of the building in which I work.  Back in Nextel's heyday, we had a good population of Nextel PTT users on campus.  I started to read about the 800MHz iDEN shutdown a while ago.  I was excited that I might soon have amazing Sprint signal in and around my office (instead of roaming on V when I go into the basement).


About 5 weeks ago, right before the Nextel shutdown, the iDEN antennas disappeared.


How can I find out if this was a permanent measure to remove Sprint's presence from our campus?  Or is this typical of sites that were/are being upgraded to 800MHz Sprint LTE?  There is already a Sprint 3G tower about half a mile south of our campus.  LTE hasn't been rolled out here, yet (Rochester, NY).

The site is probably gone for good. Sprint is decommissioning mostly redundant Nextel iDEN only sites. Just a small number of iDEN only sites are being included in Sprint Network Vision.
