Microcells?

I saw an article somewhere in the last few days that AT&T (I think, but it could have been Verizon) was going to be adding microcells to cover congested spots of a block or two like Sprint was talking about a year ago. Anyone know if Sprint is still looking to add these microcells? If I remember correctly the Sprint ones were small enough to put on stoplights.

Yes. Sprint is even doing a micro cell FIT with Nokia right now.

And have been doing tests with samsung and Alcatel-Lucent for a while if we recall their statements from last year and the recent Samsung Pico cells fcc certifications.

I remember hearing from a sites acquisitions manager for Verizon , that they are partnering with Walmart for microcells

Walmart and Verizon? Bad combination. :(

I wish someone would get some small cells in Target's... They all seem to be the places where RF dies...even the WiFi inside sucks!

    • I'm still getting Band 26 and Band 41 from keep sites in Crown Heights and Bay Ridge. I haven't seen any Band 25 though. I'm starting to think T-Mobile shut down Sprint's PCS spectrum here. I wonder if we'll get 5MHz Band 25 + 5MHz n25 carrier or if we'll just get 2 5MHz n25 carriers.
    • Still seeing strong T-Mobile HSPA+ and some weak Sprint B26 (311-490) in the north Bedstuy area Sprint eNB 6705 (40.70091884265787,-73.94344902067445) is broadcasting the keep PLMN Sprint eNB 899078/899079 (40.83022854043739,-73.94830306659236) has been converted, though the site has not yet been lit up. The density up there is pretty insane - 400ft from the site just North, 600ft from the site just South. Spotted another Dish site near City College (1606 Amsterdam Ave). This is not a former Sprint site, and the neighboring Sprint site (across the street) has not been decommissioned. Still not seeing the Dish PLMN in this area.
    • Just cycled through where I'm sitting...not near any keep sites...and 25/26 don't exist...locking to them but.ps me over to AT&T MFBI (why TMo isn't doing 2/25 MFBI here I don't know...maybe Nokia equipment can't do it?). TMo B41 is visible, but Sprint isn't. Two nights ago I saw 10 MHz Sprint B41 at the top of the band. Not sure whether that's live today.
    • Dish has base stations and antennas already set up for n26, and phones are starting to come out supporting that. Yes, it's a 5x5 patchwork, but it can basically provide an anchor for higher-frequency NR that augments n71, which in many places is only 5x5 on Dish.
    • Sprint still alive on all 3 bands here in the South Puget Sound area this morning. Robert
