    Small cells use panels as well. It's not common but it's been done before.

    I think he's referring to the fact that it seems like a way to artifically inflate subscriber numbers and show a growth that's not entirely accurate. I can't remember what quarter it was last year...

    Not a chance. They still need to install antennas and RRUs to make it work which could take awhile.They might be able to fire up a few sites within a few months but the permitting process will take...

    Haha no they don't force us to do that but they have a class available if I was so inclined. Since we're into the planning part we're better off on the ground doing what we need to do to get drawings...

    Oh, they should cover everywhere. More work for me :D
  6. I'm not sure that's the argument. What was...

    I'm not sure that's the argument. What was presented was that the expansion of the network was drawing customers but what was stated in the presser was that the promos, giveaways, and all the other...

    Similar question, how many customers, percentage wise, of any carrier run speedtests? Gun to my head I'd say it's a very small, niche group that even bother to take out their phone and run a test....

    Well you need to remember they don't exactly tell you the variables behind this. T-Mobile may be on top but changes are their actually loading was peanuts compared to Verizon and AT&T. I can't...

    Solar always sounds like a good idea but I'm not quite sure it's sufficient enough to run something that absolutely needs power 24/7. There are some sites in the western part of the country that use...

    Seeing how government contracts and agencies work within even smaller scale telecom projects I can't see this being anything but a complete cluster if the government decides to take it upon...

    I honestly don't know if/when T-Mobile started the permit process so I'm only commenting on the statement that an entire LTE band could be deployed on a market that size (site wise, not size wise)...

    Their eagerness to boast their 600Mhz upgrades...

    Their eagerness to boast their 600Mhz upgrades could backfire a little in those regards and I personally think it's an unwise choice to speak up about it as frequently as they are. While it does look...

    Hard to say as they're adding a new LTE carrier (good for capacity) to a network that can seemingly support their current customer loading so I guess it all really depends on how they prioritize the...

    I haven't seen any yet but there could be plans in the works. The issue with NYC, as outlined above, is that with the height restrictions on the antennas they have to deploy different antennas than...

    60 days is unreasonable in NYC unless they're planning on doing antenna swaps and RRH adds without permits. Trust me, it's my home market and I know the process. Even if T-Mobile claims they can do...

    Knowing the NYC process you're probably looking at a year or two years for them to upgrade the equipment even if the airwaves get cleared. The current equipment is not equipped to handle 600Mhz.

    That I do not know. We mainly deal with macros and mini macros so that's most likely a whole different department.

    Hard to say exactly since a lot of the sites are getting newer antennas along with the new radios which adds to the cost but there is quite a bit of 4x4 gear already out there at least in this...

    The problem I have with how they're touting their plan, at least the 600Mhz using NR radios part, is that it sounds good but a) they have a long road of deployment ahead of them to get the equipment...

    The municipalities are tough to deal with, especially in the entire Hempstead area. Getting a new site built is like getting blood from a stone.

    From what I can find there's around 75,000 customers (from T-Mobile's presser) and the spectrum gateway map is here showing the combined holdings between the two companies:

    Is it the massive bird nest on the tower or that wicked downtilt on the one antenna on the bottom rack which totally doesn't have a snapped bracket or something.

    Well is it because the top two carriers already have a larger footprint so expansion isn't as noticeable and T-Mobile is playing catch-up while they're steadily improving and solidifying their...
