Alpha Wireless Concealed Antenna Node
The following consists of Alpha Wireless Concealed Antenna Node (CAN) small cell sites.
This is a type of stealth setup for small cells where the small cell enodeB and relay antenna is located within the stealth enclosure which also acts as the antenna. This type of site is under beta trials with positive results and is likely to expand in deployment scope nationally to fulfill municipality requests for "good looking" small cells that they would approve.
The finished build.
Note the utilities attached to the pole and routed directly into the concealed antenna node where the small cell eNB and Relay backhaul antenna are located. In traditional small cell deployments, like such they are mounted on the exterior with visible wires.
The following is an additional example of an Alpha Wireless CAN setup. Notice the CAN's position relative to the utility pole which is at an angle.
Here is another one that is a standalone metal pole install.

That’s encouraging to hear!
I have family north of Bowie Mill Road in the area northwest of Norbeck Country Club, bounded between 108 to the northeast and 115 to the southwest.
Outdoor coverage in that area has been terrible for years.
Just to let you know .

Which device are you using? Other users have reported issued with non-Sprint branded devices not connecting to LTE roaming. In the last couple weeks I was able to connect to USCC LTE roaming with my LG G7 and data was just fine.
