Cellmapper Losing Data

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I've recently become pretty active on CellMapper and have begun locating most of the towers in areas I'm familiar with.  Something I've noticed, though, is that sometimes CellMapper seems to "lose" tower locations.  A lot of times, a tower I locate will go back to its calculated location a few days later.  Has anyone else experienced this?

Yes.  It happens with mapping information too.  I will do some mapping, then check the maps and see the new band I mapped represented with the Site ID.  Then a few days later the band disappears, as well as all my mapping.  Most of the time it eventually reappears.  When it doesn't, I go back and use the Reupload data points feature.  It can be very frustrating.

    • I got the same email. What a shame .
    • I received the below email today about Google shutting down its Fusion Tables tool. I know many of us have and still use fusion tables for our market maps here on S4GRU. Looks like we've got a year to migrate to a new platform.   Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk    
    • Have you ever been down there? Sprint's small cell deployment is paltry compared to AT&T and Verizon's C-RAN deployments.
    • What about the 2500MHz RRHs?
    • The new T-Mobile is going to boil down to a neighborhood by neighborhood decision for Sprint customers, some of which will depend on what work gets completed by Sprint assuming merger is successful.  I am assuming former Clear sites that do not get Triband upgrades are typically toast.  Sites with more recent investments stand a better chance of surviving, assuming they are not co-sites.  Of course all existing equipment could still be junked.  800 RRHs have the best odds, given they will likely be the last bastion of Sprint CDMA.  We are seeing some 1900 firmware changes that would allow for more spectrum to be used for LTE that may affect these RRH's retention.  I would also assume cabinets are toast or at least retrofitted. The main factor in keeping some of the equipment would be new equipment shortages and future 5G compatible replacements being needed in coming years. Network needs and leasing costs would be main individual site factors.  I would think markets with a low Sprint Market share would lose the most Sprint sites while those with a large Sprint Market share would have better odds for unique Sprint site retention.  Of course the FCC might mandate that VoLTE must cover all areas covered by Sprint CDMA, but this would mostly affect rural areas.  I am also assuming that the new T-Mobile will start urban in the larger markets given T-Mobile's past history.
