4 RRU sites

As I understand it high capacity sites get 4 RRUs per panel and the other sites get 3. Does this mean those with 4 use another 5 mhz  carrier and is that outside of the G block?

There will be an additional carrier outside of the G block. It will be extra carriers for 1900 voice and 3G. Only one carrier for LTE currently. ABQ market has several of these sites. Robert explained it to me during the summer when I noticed three or four.

Thanks. I wonder if they could do another LTE carrier with just the one LTE RRU. I think I read they could add a card to the base equipment for it but don't remember if the RRU is up to it. It won't matter much once 800 or 2600 LTE is up and spark tastic  but right now I think a few places the LTE is a bit crowded at the moment.

 

They just put up the RRUs 4 per panel that I can see from my apartment door yesterday. I guess I lucked out 3 g wise.

They could be two RRU with differerent downtilt. One for the far edges of the cell radius and the other close.

I guess I understood how the panels were set up wrong. I thought there were 2 1900 antennas one for CDMA and one for LTE and a third antenna for 800. There are only 3 motors to control downtilt, you can see them in the pictures, and there are 6 antenna coax hookups. 2 pairs marked for 1900 + and -, and one pair for 800 + and -.

    • Some recent non-urban new builds in Utah, which are a mix of Sprint conversions and new site builds: Central Cedar City Enoch Parowan Beaver Wallsburg I'm also hearing of future new site builds in places that currently have weak / no signal on all carriers like Fountain Green, Oak City, Woodland, and along Hwy 191 in the canyon north of Helper by the Power Plant. There are also an unbelievable number of Sprint conversions happening in the urban Wasatch Front corridor as well. 
    • Only time I have gotten a free sim from them is when I "purchased" some "free" phones from T-Mobile, unless I go back to when they were a distant 4th carrier.  My four other MVNOs are feast or famine, so I try to keep several hanging around.  I have noticed different versions have different capabilities, and newer is not always better.  They typically force you to upgrade when you need to activate another discount period.  
    • Hard to imagine they're actually worth much as easy as they are to get free though.....they keep sending them out unsolicited like nuts.  We just got like a 3rd packet of them less than a month ago and got another email notifying "SIM card is on the way".  
    • E-bay.  The physical sims do have one advantage: they are not tied to your phone, thus you can change phones mostly without your carriers permission (except Sprint billing). Benefits signal hunters, travellers, and thieves.
    • Maybe in a museum? When the phone manufacturers follow Apple’s lead and go all eSIM it will be a moot point. At least in the states.
