    Are you willing to pay for the extra backhaul, then? Expanding the pipeline isn't free.

    They're like the RRUS32 but a little squatter. Not the RRUS11/12 which are in the photo that are older LTE ones. If you look up the Ericsson NR radios under images you'll see them. There is a variety...

    Hard to tell but I don't see any of the NR Ericsson radios installed up on the tower. Looks like normal LTE radios so my best guess is a typical carrier upgrade.

    Be cautious when even tower folks...

    Most likely just one or two towers in a market since there are some repeat markets every time they update.

    The tower at the state police station off the Taconic, right? I passed by that last month.

    Haha I could go by tower guy although I'm more of an engineer hired to work with the carriers when they're doing upgrades. Either way I do get my hands on the actual upgrade plans per site as far as...

    That's definitely a carrier as the little GPS unit (red and white) is typically used by all of them. Lake George is hard to build in because of aesthetics so you're limited to little omnis like that...

    I'm not sure where the "all bands" thing comes from because even if they stated that publically that's not how upgrades work in the industry so they should know better. It makes for good PR but it's...

    No, they aren't deploying everything when they do tower work for Firstnet because it's not feasible in a large majority of areas. I've seen plenty of sites in my area where they're just deploying...

    Good question and I hope there's a heavy data user that can help answer as I just mentioned in another thread that I personally don't use apps that would need more than 2-5MBps. I'm guessing the old...

    That's the new standard setup that maximizes MIMO efficiency in terms of spacing between the actual antenna arrays within the radomes.

    That's a tough one because while I can sympathize with people who stick to the very definition of unlimited there is a big level of network management involved in allowing as much fair access as...

    They were building out some new towers the last couple of years but it's mostly just upgrades at this point. They're steady although some towers see more love than others definitely.

    I'm on the same plan and I'm paying $55-60 a month which is cheaper than any other plan I can get as a single user. Additionally Verizon is putting up a lot of small cells and tower upgrades in my...

    As an addendum to my last point I just now saw a Nokia B14 radio head. I would expect many sites to be lit by EOY.

    That single panel can only support one full set of 4x4 MIMO for mid-band and half of a 4x4 MIMO setup for a low-band so you're likely just getting two LTE bands from one of those antennas.

    Number of panels doesn't mean anything anymore since carriers are putting multiple technologies on the same antenna. You can fit two to three LTE bands on one antenna.
