    Cingular & VS in NY

    well it seems when cingular and t-mobile signed the network sharing agreement in CA cingular went and poured a ton of money into fixing and souping up their CALI network.......

    has anything similar happened in the NY metro area by Voicestream? and/or cingular? since cingular jumping onboard voicestream's network has their been any huge investment in this area by either company to not only inclrease capacity but also coverage? thanks

    Nothing that I know of, besides adding some towers on Rt80 among some other highways.

    Voicestream's network in NYC was not in as bad of shape as Cingular's network in California was. In fact, Voicestream network in NYC was not bad at all, so therefore millions of dollars didn't have to be put into the network. I'm sure some money was put into it to prevent future capacity, but not alot. Voicestream must of already had extra capacity room evidently. That is good on Voicestream's part.

    As I understand it from reading posts on another forum, people who are engineers for VS and Cingular said there was a lot more capacity added to the NYC system by making another 10mhz of spectrum go live (Cingular had the 10mhz to add to the pie). Some towers were added (but not too many) and many repeaters were added to improve indoor coverage in public buildings.
