      does this verizon tower have 1900????
    • cellular_freak
      I have no idea. Why do you ask? All of Verizon's panels look like this around here. They have both 850 licenses. Plus a PCS license.

      I think Day5 was asking because 1900 is their typical EV-DO setup. According to verizons website, this tower IS pushing a 3G signal. I can see the confusion. Here in KY, the sharkfin setup is practically nonexistant. All the Verizon antennas here in KY look exactly like Nextels do in this picture...yet we are all 3G. I am not really sure how the setup works, but from what I have heard, 850 is for voice (1x) and 1900 is for data (EV). I have seen many Verizon set ups with 2 types of antennas on the rack, one handling 850, the other is 1900. Only one of those appears to be present here, but its still 3G. I think im more confused after typing this lol.

      Here is the combined 850/1900 set up from Verizon. 4th carrier down. You see the shark fins as well as the white 1900 box next to each one. I don't understand why they do it like this on some sites, but others only have shark fins but the same service!

      Yeah, others have asked the same question before. All of Verizon's towers in this part of Michigan look like this, for the most part. There are a few exceptions. Maybe it's because Verizon has always been in this part of Michigan, using 850 MHz. Then, they decided to launch EV-DO in 1900 MHz, but did not have to change the antenna configuration. Just a hunch....
