    If anyone is curious on how the networks are being run I'll be glad to shed some light.
    2 Verizon stores in my area now has a small cell on top of the roof, is this something new Verizon is doing? Using their own locations to add small cells?

    I'm not sure but it's in their best interest to do so since what better way to advertise the network than having a great signal while you're in the store. I believe the stores also have indoor signal boosters.

    There was one small cell on the roof a week ago, now there is a total of 3. Speeds were limited to 40/30 on all 3. Not sure if any other bands were being used. The only one I connected to was 15x15 PCS. These small cells are pretty close to the macro site as well.

    Verizon in talks with Lowell on wireless cells
    By Todd Feathers, [email protected]
    UPDATED: 03/06/2017 09:28:21 AM EST

    Residents and business owners have long yearned for Verizon to run its fiberoptic cables through Lowell -- breaking Comcast's local monopoly on cable and high-speed internet and driving down prices. Verizon won't budge on FiOS, but it is willing to offer an alternative.

    The company is in negotiations with the city to install 50 small cells -- essentially miniature cell towers -- throughout Lowell. The canisters, which would be mounted on stop lights and utility poles, would boost wireless internet and cell phone service to Verizon customers.

    The city should hold out for better pricing. eventually Verizon will have to deploy these small cells to soak up capacity no matter what. So if the city wants more money I feel like in their case it's just a waiting game. the Verizon rep in this article is trying to use Scare Tactics saying that there is " a timing aspect to this". That's a load of b******* they're going to have to build those small cells one way or another.

    $1700 a YEAR for the whole group of small cells? That's beyond highway robbery if Verizon lands that good of a deal.

    "When Verizon proposed installing one small cell canister in Gage Park a year ago, they offered to pay Lowell $6,000 per year for the right, City Manager Kevin Murphy said. Now that the company is proposing 50 canisters, it's offering around $1,700 per year for the entire lot."

    That's just insane...

    Found this small cell on top of an auto repair place in Vernon, CT. Don't think it's AT&T because I only get like 2 to 3 bars in the area, but it could be a Verizon one? I'll let you guys decide?

    Does the carrier have to run fiber to each small cell? Can it be fed from an Ethernet or cable connection?

    From all the building permits I've seen for the small cells recently, they are running dedicated fiber to the control boxes. In places like retail shops and business parks, there is usually a fiber junction box not that far from a local provider like Zayo, CenturyLink, XO, Level3, Comcast Metro-E, etc...
    Could they run over a business class cable/dsl connection? Probably, but I think for reliability and SLA reasons, they will stick with fiber where possible. Not to mention, they probably have some contract that allows them a fiber connection for a fraction of what someone like you or me could get one for since they buy in volume.

    Each site gets a fiber feed which is easier for the utility pole mounted sites since they can usually pull right from the fiber line on the pole. The building ones are handled like standard cell sites.
