    They are installing new RRHs according to the screenshots. Who is the vendor?

    There are two permits for this site. First one says, remove and replace antennas. The second one is installing new RRH's and hybrid cables.

    The first does not have a vendor but second is Infinigy. I looked them up. They are a telecommunications company out of NY.

    I wonder if they need a permit.

    I think I found permits.

    The City of Albuquerque website is hard to search but best to do by address of tower. This is a tower close to me. I know Tmo already put up 600 and 700 prior. This is what I just found. I included picture of google maps.

    Edit: the vendor noted is not one Sprint has used in the past. The tower only has Tmo (top) and Sprint (second).

    OpenSignal tested every carrier's 5G network and determined that Sprint had the fastest average combined 4G/5G speeds out of the big 4. 


    I read the article, and I believe this shows the power of 2.5 when it comes to deployment of 4G/5G. When I am on 2.5 4G LTE, I consistently am between 75 to 140 MBs. That is already really good. If it was more widely deployed in Albuquerque, I am positive they would be speed kings.

    I am excited where Tmo could take this. I am a little jealous that I am in Albuquerque and not in a bigger city. Who knows. Tmo might have a plan in the next 18 to 24 months to push Massive Mimo on a lot of towers.

  4. Closure as soon as April 1st. I will be interested to see what is performed on both sides in relation to capital outlay plans until that date. Will things slow down? Will both come together to start the integration process? Can integration happen before April 1st? All very exciting. Frankly, I am glad it has finally happen.  Either way it landed, I just wanted it to end.

    , Jan. 23, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Sprint Corporation (NYSE: S) will release its fiscal 2019 third quarter financial results on Monday, Jan. 27, 2020. The results, including a message from management, will be posted at www.sprint.com/investors at approximately 8 a.m. ET. Sprint management will not host a conference call.

    No call again. I have a feeling there won't be another call if the merger is approved. However, if it is not approved, there will have to be a CYA call to explain the next steps for the company.

    Hey bigsnake... what's your prediction as to when the Judge will issue his ruling?    I'm hoping it's this week.

    IMO closing arguments were only heard last week. I know the judge's response has already been started if not already completed; however, I think he will wait until Tunney Act proceeding is completed. Beginning of February is what I think.

    From Market Realist News:

    Sprint (S) is set to release its second-quarter earnings results on November 4 before the market bell. The company’s second quarter ended on September 30. It won’t host a conference call with analysts after releasing its earnings results. 

    Odd!   this is the second time Sprint will not do a live Earnings call.    This just says (to me) the news will not be very good.  

    I have been an auditor on several engagements where the auditee was in a M&A takeover or purchase and did not do a call. They only provided guidance. In my experience, it is not uncommon but those were low fortune 1000 companies, not a top 200 company.

    I think you may be reading into the move a little too much.

    Could be a mix of macro sites and Small cells. Small cells have different B41 carriers than macro sites

    Ok I found out what that earfcn is coming from. 

    Got home from work and thought I would tinker with my magic box. Sure enough it is that. At work, I am close enough to someone who has a MB 

  9. I upgraded to the Iphone XS max a month back and I have noticed much increased speeds when I have been on Band 41.

    Going through the updated field test (which is much different on XS Max than X), I was able to find all of the below.


    39874- B41

    40072- B41

    40270- B41

    41374- B41

    On the iphone, it is too difficult to see if I can aggregate all 4 together but speeds in several locations in town, my iphone can reach 130 to 150 consistently.  Downtown even during middle of day which has never happen. I wanted to know if any one else has seen 41374 lately?

    No 10x10 B25 either?

    Sent from my SM-G965U1 using Tapatalk

    No 10x10. There are 2 5x5 carriers.

    Sprints Albuquerque spectrum holdings are very limited.

    They have PCS Block B 30mhz, D 10mhz, and G 10 mhz. In addition, they have about 90 mhz of B41 (I finally found third carrier downtown) and 14 mhz of 800.

    They have two 1900 1x carriers, two 1900 CDMA Rev A. carriers. I don't think this is necessary as band 26 is pretty wide spread through the city. If they could trim those down and add a b25 carrier, that would be fantastic.

    Another new small cell, this was installed in April and went live in June. These things are popping up all over the place, definitely a benefit of AT&T having their own fiber everywhere around here.4b58c6fee95b52097c48e66b15b1c29d.jpg6208afbcda0b1fd18dbe32d296511d63.jpg5e19b5ee6e572b7fec6a9faa6416fec9.jpg

    Just to confirm I am reading this right. You are connected to a 20mhz Band 2 aggregated with two 20mhz Band 46 (LAA TDD),

    How far away from the location do you lose Band 46? Very interesting. Proven FDD with TDD aggregation.
