New site why not?


Recommended Posts

So this year our town decommissioned a big water tower. Not to long after as I live 2 blocks away I talked to the men that where hooking up equipment and they said they are installing att, Verizon putting panels up and had backhaul installed really fast. Question is why didn't sprint take up on doing this? It's on top of a huge hill in the center of town?

Is the service you're receiving sufficient at home?

Sprint may not be doing site surveys for your area right now. I think they're primary focus right now is completing NV 1.0 and pushing through NV 2.0 and NV 2.5. Until 1x800 and LTE 800 is deployed in their planned areas, you may not see many brand new (non-conversion) site additions.

Having a CDMA site at the highest point in town isn't always the best for RF planning as it can cause interference for the other sites in the cluster.

Plus unfortunately AT&T and Vzw have the money and are usually tied to local government, city/towns for there services, an example EMS/Fire, Police.... Sprint may have a few county or cities that use them for there provider.  Another unfortunate thing is that AT&T (well not so much AT&T anymore), and Vzw own there own towers (well not ALL of them but you know what I mean...)

    • 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.
