First Sighting On Metropcs Buildout

This is the first MetroPCS site I have seen in Lansing. They are just finishing a buildout now. I believe that they are the lowest on the pole.

      A lot of very busy towers out that way!

      Yeah, the carriers like to share around here, which is great. I hate seeing monopole farms where there will be 2 or 3 of them, each with just 1 carrier.

      The fourth one down (or up) would appear to me to be the MetroPCS site. They were adding a whole bunch of panels around here that only have one panel per sector.

      Well when you look at the google street view picture, the only set of panels that was not there last spring was the lowest.
    • cellular_freak
      Hmm. Cuz those bottom panels just look a lot like Verizon's panels in Michigan. But who knows. They could very well be MetroPCS. I was just giving my input because of what Metro is doing around here, I just figured it'd be the same down there.
    • Yankees368
      Who knows. I could be wrong. I really don't know the set ups of panels out here yet. The styles differ a lot from the set ups in NY.

      Dang. I opened this picture and pegged the top one as Verizon immediately. Thats IDENTICAL to the Verizon set up in KY, yet it says its ATT here. There goes everything I thought I knew about spotting carriers!!
    • Yankees368
      You can ignore that. That list is in no order, but just listing the carriers that I know are on the tower.
