    What are these new antennas?

    Just noticed some panels being replaced at this site. (The green ones) Anyone know who these are for? Pretty sure the site supports Verizon & ATT.

    The top top looks like a Verizon Wireless setup.

    The bottom, where the antennas are being replaced, appear to be AT&T. That looks like their new setup for FirstNet.

    Thanks!! Think any other bands will show up on my phone once the new panels go online? I only see LTE 2 & 17 now.

    Jake is correct. This is the FirstNet setup for certain areas on the bottom. Those are Quintel panels.

    Yeah, you could see an additional band added, such as one that Bentley mentioned here.

    But, it depends on the spectrum in your area.

    Those look like the Commscope octoport antennas. They're typically supporting B2/B12/B14/B66 on that one antenna.

    Yeah doesn’t look like quintel to me either. Commscope in my area don’t look like that though—mostly really old b12 panels. Is this a newer version?

    It looks to short to be a Quintel since they are usually 6-7 ft and have more ridges off to the side..

    Relatively new but I think if you poke around on their website they have specs. Look for the NNHH models.

    What's pretty cool is how they swap out panels with no extended service loss. (I did lose service for about 1/2 hour about a week ago) The new panels still appear to be offline as I don't see any new bands.

    Wondering if they have to reduce power when working so close to live panels? Is the radiation harmful when within inches of then?
