    Can anybody tell if this is going to be an AT&T small cell?

    They just started putting this up last Friday, I know it's not Sprint or Verizon since they both have sites right around the corner. So if it is part of a small cell it's for ATT or TMobile. Can anybody here speculate? https://m.imgur.com/a/i27vptx

    Those look like Ericsson rrus ... so, we will have to wait until the actual small cell is up... often times smalll cell can be very close to a cell site to boost capacity in the area

    Most likely Verizon but as another poster said the antenna setup will be a better tell.

    Verizon just built a monopine macro right in the middle of this shopping center last december, it's roughly 300 feet from where this photo was taken, so I'm doubtful about that, but like you said we'll have to wait and see.

    Fair, although I've seen small cell/oDAS networks in the middle of macros to offset street level traffic in heavy traffic areas. Verizon's the only ones I've seen use those cable covers on their small cells but there's a possibility that other carriers have started using those as well.

    For those of you that were following this, this is not an AT&T small cell, I talked to the guys working on it today, it’s for Verizon . I don’t understand why, this is a black hole for AT&T coverage and Verizon works great here already, Verizon has a macro in the same parking lot. Oh well.
