Easiest way to check spectrum holdings for Sprint?


Recommended Posts

I'm curious about how much BRS/EBS spectrum Sprint holds where I live. The FCC spectrum dashboard no longer seems to be maintained... is there an easy data base to find this information?

For BRS, it's pretty straight-forward.  This map may help:  https://specmap.sequence-omega.net/

For EBS, the licensing on it is so convoluted that it basically requires manually sorting through license data.  I've done it for select locations, but it's not something I do regularly because it's a real pain.

For EBS you have to do things like plot the radii for each frequency and then split the footballs for where they overlap given which  licensees which may alternate on different frequencies between several different locations.

Some BRS licenses are grandfathered to be like EBS and the frequency ranges can also vary.

Speaking of this question. Spectrum Omega shows no B41 in most of South Dakota, does Sprint really not own any there? Other than that 5mhz I saw when I was there back in May?

Sprint has mostly EBS in South Dakota.  But a lease would be easy to get from most of the BRS license holders in South Dakota.  Sprint already has agreements with Golden Wireless for License Protection Sites.

I wonder why EBS isn't on Spectrum Omega? This only really matters if Sprint if expands coverage or TMobile uses it.

Because it’s impossibly difficult to map.

    • Author kinda doesn't know what they're talking about, as they assumed their speeds were n71-only (it's like they half-read the PCMag article they cite). The speeds they're mentioning are 100% from n71 + n66 SDL, which also explains speeds dropping off a cliff when they walk indoors. In fact, Dish has some paired AWS-3 in Spokane, albeit just 5x5, so I wouldn't be surprised if they haven't bothered deploying that and are just doing 71 + n66 SDL (the former at 5x5). May head down to San Marcos and New Braunfels tonight to do some testing. I expect either n71-only or n71 + SDL, not sure which. n71 is 5x5 here as Dish has leased half of their 10x10 to T-Mobile. When that lease expires they'll be at 10x10, and they could get another 10 MHz FD (albeit not contiguous) from speculators if T-Mobile didn't outbid them. Will be interesting to see who buys what when.
    • The Verge wrote an article on Dish’s network.    https://www.theverge.com/2022/7/1/23188077/dish-wireless-project-genesis-first-week-testing-speeds-coverage
    • I guess that makes sense. I know that ZiplyFiber (my ISP) has had issues with sourcing fiber as well.  Also, that recently upgraded site is interesting. NOt only does it have a strange eNB value, 236960, which  is different from the ones usually around here but also, all of the LTE bands (including B41) are on the same eNB. This is the first time I have seen  T-Mobile do that in this area.  Also found another upgraded site, eNB 84770, by FireStation 26 has been upgraded with B71/n71 (no n41). 
    • Almost the exact same thing happened on my Verizon Galaxy Flip a couple days ago.
