What parts of the 2.5Ghz EBS BRS band are currently usable?

I know Sprint owns 160Mhz from 2496Mhz-2696Mhz. What is the part they own?

I know they can't use all of it because of old rules with it that weren't intended for modern uses, hence why they are trying to get it changed. So what mhz chunks of it are currently usable?

When I checked the license map for this band, it's a freaking mess. So I'm confused about it.

This is highly location dependant. Some markets Sprint owns over 200mhz, others less than 20mhz. On average it's about 160mhz. Some contiguous others non-contiguous.

So no simple answer. I'd advise you to concentrate your research on locations you visit most frequently.

Sprint can use what ever it has licensed or leased. With FCC permission it can use the two small gaps. BRS is often by counties. The rest is currently by radius. When the radius overlap, the difference is split. Not all the spectrum is currently licensed, especially in rural areas. The FCC is in process to making revisions and planning to offer more licenses.

I thought the FCC approved EBS to change to move away from radius and go per county as well.

That has been discussed as one option of several but not approved to my knowledge. I believe that will come up in the fall.

    • Another SCP beta is rolling out now, with some bugfixes as usual but also some fun new options to test: Non-standalone 5G-NR cells can now display Site Notes. This feature works in the same manner as how neighbor cell notes are displayed, requiring a PCI and your device's location. This option is enabled by default. As is the case with neighbor cell notes, you cannot edit NSA site notes directly unless there is an NCI being reported (which I have never seen); it uses the previously recorded standalone log entries. Like neighbor notes, if a cell has been previously logged but there is no note, you will see the distance information only.   Logging cells that are not reporting a valid PLMN is now possible. This option is disabled by default, but if you enable it along with two other options (log sites with missing GCI/NCI and to log sites with missing TAC), you should begin logging most NSA 5G-NR cells. A PCI is needed at a minimum, which is not always reported depending on your device and network factors. ("Sites" will be renamed to "cells" on the Preferences menu in the next update.)   Users can enable an option to display LTE cells above 5G-NR cells in the app if they choose to do so. This option is disabled by default. Should help improve the readability of your screen if you have NSA 5G-NR cells constantly appearing/disappearing. Please give these options a try and let me know if you notice any issues.. thanks!
    • Not yet. We probably won't see one submitted until construction on the new building is substantially complete. 
    • Yes, that is where the site used to be. All the antennas were removed. I hope they add a new site soon. Have any permits been submitted for a new site?
