  1. How reliable have you found USCC's LTE network to be?

    For the brief time you were connected to band 13, how did it perform?
  3. Well I found some more small cells in my surrounding area, whats exciting to see is two of them seem to be directional, not using the traditional omni-directional antenna i'm used to seeing. https://imgur.com/a/MBB11as

    not in urban areas, but for rural, yes it will scoop dial up and dsl customers right up, not to mention satellite internet customers
  5. This is one of a few mobilitie small cells I have found in the area. I'm wondering if it is sprint because there is no relay installed. Actually some that had the relay before has since been removed. It looks to be connected to a wire line network... The two underground communication hatches are on the sidewalk and the unnamed one in the landscaping, yards away from the site. As mentioned, one is unnamed and one says Comcast. Let me know what you guys think. Just as a disclaimer, this site wasn't here about two weeks ago. (Midtown Detroit) Also; Verizon is using a completely different vendor in SE Mich so I highly doubt this site is a verizon one. https://imgur.com/gallery/irfkNzk If I have time i'd like to create a map of all the sprint small cells provided by mobility in SE Mich... stay tuned as my time is limited.
  6. Okay so I managed to make it out to that other wireline mobilitie site today(or yesterday lol whatever haha) It was getting dark so my photos are not the best but here is what I have. (Btw I also included some of the development going on in this area that may have been reason Sprint decided to locate a small cell here. That and well, its pretty close to Ford Field, Comerica Park and Little Caesars Arena.) Again, sorry for the poor lighting but this is definitely another small cell connected by wire-line as apposed to relay. The last few images are construction for a massive development from Bedrock, which is affiliated with Rocket Fiber.(Both part of quicken loans if that matters) They could be providing the backhaul but unfortunately due to lighting the only wire-line on the utility poles i could spot with a name was Comcast; that's not to say there were many other lines on the utility poles. It was just to dark to spot. Anyway; here it is: https://imgur.com/a/HTaHdmD Any thoughts?

    Mobilitie Sites

    I don't have any Sprint lines as I am on at&t(off topic but dang no small cells and their speeds are awful lol cannot wait to jump ship lol), but from the looks of it i'm assuming it's Comcast as it was the only landline cabling on the utility pole. The one i'll post tomorrow i'm thinking is fed with an at&t fiber connection....or maybe Lightspeed? (never heard of them but apparently have a presence in Detroit.) I know Verizon small cells are fed by CenturyLink so it could be them as well. We also have a local Fiber network exclusive to Detroit Proper (Rocket Fiber owned by Quicken Loans) so that is also another possible candidate. Anyway; I will find out and post whatever I can tomorrow. Looks like I need to pick up a sprint line

    Mobilitie Sites

    Tomorrow I will take pictures of another one about a mile away in a pretty desolate area of Detroit. However, a massive condominium complex is being built in this area so once completed it will be a pretty nice area. Will post pics of my other finding sometime tomorrow if I can get the chance. Stay tuned.

    That's what I figured. It's hard to say if the relay was there in the first place because two weeks ago this small cell wasn't even there. I'm wondering if they'd being Comcast...

    We Welcome Our New Magenta Overlords?

    I think with our current administration its more than likely this merger will be approved.

    Over in my neck of the woods it already seems like some of at&t's towers are at their weight limits. Some sites even have needed extra mounting underneath the rack to support all the rru's and panels....
