Sprint Organic Network Expansion Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

I wonder if any one can make an overlay of all the decommissioned Nextel site and remove all that already have Sprint on them and those already converted. Im dying to know which 1,100 sites are being converted now. I know of quite of few old nextel only sites that could be used to fill in some coverage gabs.

I actually have a non-redundant Nextel site map for my area, but it focuses mainly on Clearwire and any Nextel+Clearwire sites show up as just Clearwire.

 

A national map would be awesome!

Yep, I posted a list of the sites by cascade ID that are due microwave backhaul in the Premier sector of the forums.  If Robert would allow it to be posted in here I would copy and paste it.  

 

i missed that post, can you link it here for the time being so at least premier members can take a look at it, thanks!

No permission necessary if they cite where it came from.

This is good news. I would like to see a time frame but adding ~9000 sites would bring sprint's more in line with the competition in terms of destiny.

I still think Project Ocean is a goofy name for IL/MO USCC conversions. Regardless of what they call it, I'm just happy to have the work in place for a really dense network experience around town. Here's hoping my office lands some B26 love and I can actually use my phone at my desk...

here is a local GMO site that was also a nextel site.  i posted this in another topic and was told that it looks like there is three nextel panels on it with one sprint.  are these the types of set ups that may be upgraded with this new program?

If it's already a GMO, then it is not part of the program. It will be upgraded as part of the GMO to full build project.

Will all GMO become full builds. There are four GMO's here in southern Cecil county MD that have just been sitting for ever no activity at all and still all legacy equipment. Sprint seems to have forgot about them. Pretty much everybody here is on Verizon or AT&T this proly is a factor.

Sprint filed frequency coordination  for hundreds of New Microwave paths last November covering Washington, Colorado, Iowa, Illinois and Ohio

 

Details of how to find these for Ohio would be most welcome.  Please post  details over here.

I certainly hope that any plans to acquire nTelos (either directly or through partner Shentel) is part of this!

 

Aaaarrrgghh!

From a purely financial resource perspective, I hope they let would Shentel carry that weight.

http://www.fiercewireless.com/story/sprint-expand-and-improve-lte-network-may-add-20000-cell-sites/2015-02-26?utm_source=Twitter&utm_medium=Editor&utm_campaign=SocialMedia

 

Sprint to expand and improve LTE network, may add up to 20,000 cell sites

 

The source said Sprint's new network plan will have a mix of dual-band and tri-band sites because in some rural markets Sprint will not be deploying 2.5 GHz radios and antennas. The company plans to densify its network through both macro cell sites and small cells. According to the source, Sprint plans to keep the 10,000 former Clearwire towers. About 7,000 of those sites now support TD-LTE but do not have CDMA radios. Part of the new plan involves adding CDMA to some of these sites.
