Hello from the big apple!

Hey guys new around here from nyc. Just switched to sprint and got the nexus 5. This forum has such a vast knowledge base about sprint and cell networks as a whole. Im excited to learn as much as i can. Was almost disappointed enough to cancel because of no service at my home address but sprint actually sent me an airave (which i learned about here) free of charge after a few calls the first week of service. Oddly enough move a few blocks away And get LTE or 3g signal. Regardless sprint has been a great carrier so far and the technology to be deployed is going to be freaking awesome.

:welcome:  Glad you like it! We have quite a few folks from NYC that post regularly, with tons of great info and experiences to share. Tons of question and answers, especially the new Nexus 5, as many here are enthusiasts for the best, latest technology. Peruse the relevant threads and see what you can find. If you like the knowledge you get to pick up, think about dropping a few bucks to donate and become a Sponsor. You get updates very regularly, and have access to the sites and NV rollout progress. You will probably benefit most from the 800MHz rollout that is starting this month, your phone is able to access both LTE and Voice on that frequency, also, when you are out and about, you may be able to catch some band 41 LTE, being in NYC it is already in a few spots and is so far pretty dang speedy from what folks here have recorded. (Hint; Premier sponsors get to see some cooler stuff relating to the differing frequencies, rollout if you decide you like that stuff) Feel free to ask any questions, or look through the older posts to pick up some good info, glad you like it!

    • T-Mobile Will Soon Prevent Early Payoff Of Phones Receiving Bill Credits If you finance a phone with T-Mobile it will remain locked until paid off but now you won't be able to pay off early. If you don't currently purchase your phones from the manufacturer here is another reason it might be a good idea.
    • Was in Red Hook again and I swear there are more Link5G sites as there are Verizon, T-Mobile, and AT&T small cells combined in the entire neighborhood. It seemed like every other street I turned down had one installed. Hopefully carriers will start hopping on them soon. Seems like a lot of effort to go through for no one to use them.  — — — — — T-Mobile converted the Sprint site on top of NYU Langone Brooklyn in Sunset Park. I first mapped one sector of it back in November 2023 but I thought it was a small cell so I never pinned it but I ran into another sector today which caught me off guard. I'm unable to find a permit for the conversion so it's definitely a surprise. There's another T-Mobile site 1 block away that T-Mobile initially installed back in 2019 so I'm kinda surprised they're keeping both considering the Sprint conversion is on a much taller building and could potentially provide much better coverage to the entire area.  — — — — —  Old permit for this new install expired but a new one was recently issued. It's gonna be similar to the site at 360 Forman St in Brooklyn Heights. Permit calls for only 3 antennas to be installed so I'm assuming it gonna be Band 2/41/66 and n25/41 only which is a bit of a downgrade from the now decommissioned full build that was on 871 7th Ave but in it's current state the nearest macro is a few blocks away and a small cell at Broadway and 55th is doing a lot of heavy lifting in the area so anything helps.  
    • Still not seeing any ULS postings for pending T-Mobile UScellular merger in Dane county Wisconsin.
    • Came across another Crown Castle Solutions multi-tenant oDAS node in Brooklyn. Located at 40.7002286, -73.9612666. Nothing on T-Mobile or AT&T so I'm assuming these are all Verizon nodes that Crown Castle is anticipating another carrier will hop on down the line.
    • Same with factory unlocked
