Yes, Sprint was required by the US government to decommission all Huawei equipment due to security concerns.
Sprint has historically had issues with the property owner of that Motel 6. It was one of the last sites upgraded to LTE, and it will probably be one of the last sites upgraded to triband.
That permit is for the Clear site by Kirkland marina. There is a mini-macro setup on the roof of Evergreen Hospital by Totem Lake.
That makes sense, I said "loves" strictly because I have encountered so many of them near me. I didn't know about the Huawei aspect of things. They are very well located normally, providing coverage for weak spots from the "main" tower.
As for Evergreen, that would make sense, it's a high location in what has become a VERY busy area. I am guessing that is why the tower over on the Motel 6 nearby has not been upgraded.
Also, that is good to know about all of the MM clusters. That combined with this permit makes me think that I am correct on the location. The only thing I need to determine if all three eNB are at the same site.
Sprint doesn't love MM/SC setups, they were just the cheapest way to replace Huawei Clear equipment per government order.
That particular site was a Clear equipment swapout. It is scheduled to get triband this year, I believe.
Any MM clusters in the area are from former Clear sites. We do not have any MM on NV setups in this area.
