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...)

    • Strange business model that they keep around all these pricing plans. 1000s of plans per carrier is reportedly not uncommon.  Training customer support must be a nightmare. Even MVNOs have legacy plans. A downside of their contract mentality I guess. Best to change contracts during a recession. But then all carriers try to squeeze out legacy plan benefits as they grow old.  
    • Everything "Uncarrier" is becoming "Carrier" again. Because of the Credit Limit that T-Mobile put on our account for no reason at all (and wouldn't change/update the last time I checked all the way up to the CEO), I don't plan on buying/upgrading our iPhones through T-Mobile. I'm going through Apple directly. Looks like I'll be going through Google and Samsung directly for our other lines for upgrades. Also, we're staying on Sprint Max given the ridiculous pricing for Go5G Plus. On Sprint Max, we currently pay for our Plan: $260 for 7 Voice Lines $25 for two Wearable Lines. (One is $10/Month. The other is $15/Month because the AutoPay discount only applies up to 8 lines.) Total: $285/Month vs. Go5G Plus (Per the Broadband Facts "nutrition label" on the T-Mobile Website): https://www.t-mobile.com/commerce/cell-phone-plans $360 - ($5 AutoPay Discount x 7 Voice Lines) = $325 The Watch Plans show as either $12/Month or $15/Month: https://www.t-mobile.com/cell-phone-plans/affordable-data-plans/smartwatches So this is about the same for the wearables as what we're paying now. Overall, it's quite more than we're paying now to switch plans. Ridiculous....
    • Welcome back! That's similar to my best (1250ish). A few people have broken 2000 on good sites. 
    • Lots of new multi-carrier nodes popping up in Bushwick. Crown Castle Fiber node at Ridgewood & Palmetto:   Crown Castle Solutions node at Irving & Jefferson:   Crown Castle Solutions node at Wilson & Noll:  
    • I’m surprised they’re running a 5x5 Band 66 carrier still. In NYC T-Mobile has 25x25 AWS and they’re running 20x20 Band 66 and 5x5 n66 (in testing). Presumably when n66 commercially launches they’ll drop Band 66 down to 15x15 and go straight for a 10x10 n66 carrier like they did with n25.
