  1. Well, it looks like T-Mobile purchased SWIFTEL. Looks like the action date is TODAY. https://wireless2.fcc.gov/UlsApp/ApplicationSearch/applMain.jsp?applID=12386667
  2. Once they add that Band4/66 layer you will definitely see a difference in speeds.
  3. Yes, this should be very very interesting. They definitely need the spectrum and Brookings needs actual T-Mobile coverage. Would also help out Sioux Falls immensely and maybe you would actually see stores finally. They are dragging their feet in that market on stores and judging from the comment from Camcroz, I can see why. I am sure that the Band 12/Band 71 additions at least helped, but once again they definitely need Band 4 to give it a stronger base.
  4. T-Mobile needs to add Band 4 in Sioux Falls. Can you tell us what the Band layering looks like - IE-Band 12 5x5, Band 71 etc.....that would be great. I am out in Rapid City.
  5. Just thought I would chime in with a report from Rapid City SD. There has been movement on the Sprint front over the past couple of months. We have approvals for 2 new sites in the city. Site 1 is a brand new tower at 611 Lindbergh Ave at the GoodWill off from Haines Ave. Site 2 is a co-location with the other 3 on the tower at 3305 S Valley Dr. Fairly certain Sprint Spectrum is broadcasting from 5 other sites in the city as well, but don't have a way to double check at this point. Lots of movement again from T-Mo so my hands are full there. If I see any more Sprint activity, I will advise.
  6. In this are 600mhz has been cleared for quite some time so they do the site upgrade and antennas at the same time and launch. It may be that they are getting the site ready, then when it's time they will just add the antennas and launch. T-Mobile is known for doing that. Sent from my LG-H932 using Tapatalk
  7. That is correct. Believe me the look much larger in person. Sent from my LG-H932 using Tapatalk
  8. 2nd set of equipment only. 3 sectors. Top rack is ATT. Sent from my LG-H932 using Tapatalk
  9. Okay, here we go. 2nd set of equipment. Here is what it looks like. This site was originally 5mhz Band 4 and 5mhz Band 12. It is now 5mhz Band 2, 5mhz Band 4, 5mhz Band 12 and 10mhz Band 71. This tower is in Rapid City SD on Haines Ave. Sent from my LG-H932 using Tapatalk
  10. Will have a pic for you within the hour. Sent from my LG-H932 using Tapatalk
  11. I will get one for you tomorrow. Sent from my LG-H932 using Tapatalk
  12. That seems to be the case. When you see those super wide antennas, they are adding Band 71. At least that is how it has worked around here. I think you said you are in Colorado? I know they are doing work down there currently. Sent from my LG-H932 using Tapatalk
  13. Those antennas are super WIDE. They have been upgrading my area (Western South Dakota) over the past couple months and should be fully complete by end of December. Of course I also monitor NE Wyoming which has been LIVE since the beginning of this year. The 600mhz does make a difference for sure. Also mutiple new sites going up so it's a very exciting time for T-Mo in this area. First stores opened a year ago in August. Sent from my LG-H932 using Tapatalk
  14. That is correct. Disappearing about a year from now. Expect it sooner in most cases/places as they need the spectrum for LTE. https://www.fiercewireless.com/wireless/verizon-stops-activating-cdma-3g-devices-as-network-shutdown-looms Sent from my LG-H932 using Tapatalk
  15. That's a great question....however, a year from now 1x/CDMA will no longer exist on Verizon as they will be the first pure LTE network after they shut down 3G. Should make their current roaming agreements very interesting. Sent from my LG-H932 using Tapatalk
