Sprint Spectrum Listings by Market


Arysyn

Recommended Posts

I've been intending to ask for this for quite some time, but I've been neglecting to do so until I figured out how to present this. The information is mainly about Sprint, though it might be interesting to know what other carriers have, for comparative reasons.

 

 

Alright, what I'm asking for, which is a benefit to everyone wanting to know about spectrum holdings belonging to Sprint, and other carriers perhaps, is a list of spectrum holdings by market in the form of downlink by uplink, either #x# or #+#. Please list them according to band in MHZ, not by band number. It'll be easier for people who are less experienced in wireless knowledge to understand, without having to search for exact band information.

Not exactly what you're looking for, but probably as close as we can get in the near future:  http://specmap.sequence-omega.net/

 

You might also try this, but the data may not be up to date:  http://reboot.fcc.gov/reform/systems/spectrum-dashboard

 

Big problem is that the FCC's database is rather hard to parse.  To do anything else would be to hand-manage it, a lot of work that would require a lot of maintenance.

Interesting map. So, for the uneducated, does this map indicate that if there are no 800MHZ or 2600MHZ holdings in a particular area, that area will not get B26, or B41? Or, just that it will be a longer wait?

One problem with that one is VERY limited my metro (not very many metros to pick from)

The map uses the data from the FCC database which can be very hard to parse.  If you click around enough, you'll find that Sprint actually has 800 MHz SMR holdings nationwide, just scattered across different categories of licenses due to oddities of the database.  I don't put much stock in the 2.5 GHz data because of the scatterbrained way it's licensed.

Yeah.  Case in point, that map shows that Sprint only has about 60 Mhz of 2.5 GHz spectrum, when I've seen articles saying that in some markets they have up to 120 Mhz.

55.5 MHz.  That is the attributable BRS spectrum.

For some reason the spectrum map cuts out on the left side. I've tried reducing the text size in Chrome, but didn't work. I'll try the device settings.

 

That didn't work either. I'm still using the ZTE ZMAX.

    • Yet another "Carrier" move: T-Mobile users have only now discovered sneaky change made in May
    • Went to Hurricane Harbor again this past weekend, this time testing Verizon and T-Mobile. In my testing, Verizon is now the fastest carrier, at least on the Hurricane Harbor sector. Despite it being pretty overcast on Saturday with temperatures in the mid-80's the park was at full capacity.  Verizon had 160MHz of n77 and T-Mobile now has 160MHz of n41. On LTE I was seeing speeds in the range of 50-100Mbps while T-Mobile's LTE on was completely swamped, barely crossing 3Mbps. While both carriers only have a single high capacity sector (facing Great Adventure, Verizon benefits from having CBRS deployed on all sectors. This is an extra 60-100MHz of capacity that T-Mobile doesn't have. Maybe when T-Mobile gets around to deploying their C-band we'll see a boost in speeds again to be more competitive with Verizon. On the 5G side of things, T-Mobile's speeds were just over half that of Verizon.  That said, neither carrier was slow and I had zero issue using Xbox Cloud Gaming on T-Mobile despite their weaker upload speeds and higher ping.  
    • I think the newer ones have signal bars on them. I took a photo of one in Red Hook a month or two ago that had the same design.
    • Well well, looks like we found one of the two Link5G towers that might actually have 5G. Notice anything different? This one has the same signal bars icon that the pole mounted 5G oDAS units have. It’s in Chinatown at East Broadway and Forsyth St. It’s impossible to tell what carrier it is, though.
