So can someone explain to me so I can explain to other's on why wireless carriers can't just put up a site in areas where needed. Most people don't understand why carrier's can't just throw up a site.

Thanks

You have to go to the township you have to go to the zoning board and get approval you have to get permits approved you need to pay lawyers to do it. If it's in front of a residential area you would have to fight the community that lives there and you have to get approval from the township to put it up

Well there is structural differences with each Tower. You also have to factor in that if you have to camouflage the site like for example this site near me is a flagpole site. You need to sometimes make it aesthetically appealing to the people living near the site. That takes time to modify and also if you need to negotiate with the landlord of the area the carrier is trying to put up a site. Sometimes the landlord want a certain amount of money per month to host the cell site. And also load Factor like how much can the site can handle in terms of weight from the equipment being put up on it. Also in terms of constructing a new site there's logistical problems like getting fiber to the site as well

Baby boomer generation also blocks them. That's why alot of areas (not freeway's) will see Small cells.

Yes that's also a true fact I won't be surprised if they deploy small cells everywhere

Vzw has deployed 100's of them in alot of areas, att is working on them. Sprint is adding them in LA, Miami, NYC. Other areas are plan. I live Minnesota a couple popped up. Haven't seen here in the twin cities. Yet away. Lastest claims were Winter. Sprint needs small cells and,macros in MN still to many drops to 3G.

I haven't seen any small cells in the Twin Cities. I'm on LTE most of the time but I agree I still see 3G a lot. They need to keep improving.

South Jersey has CA and B26, they have for over a year now.

New Jersey could see 10x10 on band 25 in the future if Sprint starts doing it in cities where they hold 30mhz 15x15 spectrum.

Sprint has the least amount LTE. Even the least amount of coverage. That's why they need someone's helps to build out. Softbank doesn't look like they are.

Maybe a Comcast buy out would help

It would. I've heard Comcast has the worst customer service. So I'm not sure about the one. T-Mobile or Dish possible or both.

It would probably make it worse in my honest opinion

    • Mike, are you still recommending that this beta only be used on on dual psim/esim devices or should it now be basically safe for all devices (with usual beta risks)?
    • A new SignalCheck Pro beta is rolling out right now with LOTS of bug fixes.. and some new features. The full changelog is in the app or on the website. In addition to many bugfixes, there are some notable new options: Colorize location display to indicate low accuracy (yellow when Trail Logger is enabled) or outdated timestamp (red). This is enabled by default. Enable/disable display of location coordinates with location accuracy and the location timestamp.. so now each value can be individually enabled/disabled. Configure the maximum age of location data before Location Service is restarted; the default remains at 10 minutes but can now be configured as desired. Limit max number of neighbor cells to display (including 0, if you only want to see the summary line). Some users are seeing LTE or NR data persist after a connection is lost. I made some minor changes, but I wanted to get this release rolled out before continuing to dig deeper into that issue since I made so many other changes that may or may not impact this bug. One thing that users can try is to disable the option under Preferences > Display Settings > Show Hidden Data -- that may resolve the issue. Looking forward to feedback! Thanks..
    • Yup. It keeps GPS info up to date while logging. 
    • Looks like GPS Status and Toolbox
    • https://www.fiercewireless.com/wireless/t-mobile-att-and-verizon-gear-super-bowl T-Mobile DAS upgrades and AT&T under the seats antennas are interesting. Hopefully someone gets pictures and details of the under the seats antennas.
