Network Vision/LTE - Phoenix Market (including Flagstaff, Prescott)

Recommended Posts

No to the speeds. You are not likely to see a 10x10 PCS carrier anywhere on Sprint. 

 

The second carrier still doubles the capacity of the site though (assuming it doesn't already have B41). So even though peak speeds are still around 37Mbps, the net effect is the same. More speed and capacity for everyone!

I see.  Is Phoenix one of the markets that will get 3x3 Mhz of spectrum allocated for B26 once IBEZ issues are fixed?  This can help remedy the issue of capacity from B26, with the second B25 carrier.

Mexican IBEZ is 3x3 for B26 once rebanding finishes.

I don't think that IBEZ is the hold up in PHX B26 delays.  It's getting Maricopa County to stop squatting on Sprint's spectrum.

That's correct. Unless there is something else that I am not aware of, the IBEZ should not affect the Phoenix metro.

What is the timeline for Maricopa county to do whatever it is they need to do to allow Sprint to use band 26 here in PHX?

Glad to see B41 chugging along nice in Phoenix, I get connections across everywhere I drive now.  Still no word on Maricopa county and B26?  B26 in my opinion is a must as it gives better building penetration.

B26 would and the last few sites that have had no work done on them being completed would give sprint a very competitive network in the valley. Network densification would give sprint the best network in the valley.

Hey guys!! Does any one know when band 26 will go live in Phoenix AZ.  we have a lot of holes in the coverage  here and I know that will fill it in well.

Probably something to bring up in the Phoenix Market thread.

Band 26 is being delayed in Arizona due to an 800MHz rebander fighting with Sprint and the FCC. It's been dragging on for a long time, but appears to be finally heading toward a solution. It probably won't be live until the end of the year at the earliest, though.

Let's hope. The network would be really competitive out here with 800 deployed.

is this the fight with APS and FCC?

I would think so. If it wasn't so far from me I would over there today. I still might.

Usually some variation of ##debug# or #data.

 

Look it up for your device.

Also make sure to get a shot of the GCI. Either scroll down the screen on that app, or use Signal Check.

    • Anybody think they know what the "Uncarrier Move" will be tomorrow?    Some places are speculating that it's network related...   Thoughts?  Guesses?    
    • Not exactly...600 MHz antennas haven't been in production for very long and manufacturers are still refining their designs. Since T-Mobile wanted to deploy their spectrum as quickly as possible, they ordered what was available when they started the rollout. Now we're feeling the pain that comes with that early tech. And unfortunately, the shared transmit path means 700 performance takes a hit as well.  There are a lot of much higher performing non-600 4x lowband antennas. For example, Verizon has deployed Amphenol HT4C6318x000 antennas (https://amphenol-antennas.com/product/ht4c6318x000/) throughout the greater Seattle area. These antennas get ~18 dBi gain from 696-900 MHz. As a result, there is a tremendous coverage difference between Verizon and T-Mobile setups from the same site - I'll often drop T-Mobile LTE altogether while Verizon is hovering at -110ish or better. Newer 600 MHz antennas have significantly more robust coverage patterns than the antennas T-Mobile is deploying. For example the Amphenol TWIN6510LU000G-T/TWIN658LU000G-T (https://amphenol-antennas.com/product/twin6510lu000g-t/ and https://amphenol-antennas.com/product/twin658lu000g-t/) get ~17.1dBi and 16.4 dBi gain respectively in the 617-906 MHz range and both support 4xLowband/4xMidband. That being said, I doubt T-Mobile will climb towers to swap out 600 MHz antennas in the near future. As a result, where T-Mobile's density is similar to AT&T and Verizon, as far as raw coverage goes, AT&T and Verizon will have a definite and noticeable edge. 
    • Is it because it went from 2x2 to 4x4 on 600 and 700MHz?
    • What, T-Mobile wouldn't want to carry on the tradition of different SIM SKUs for different phones?
