    Actually, if you're using a network extender and wifi calling, maybe you can look at the access point or run some app that uses internet traffic to see if the wifi is dropping on your end. If it was...

    Just to note, no messing with tethering at all on gUDP, but even my UDP plan I had back in 3G days. later on through the 3G days it got a clause added on that it was subject to depioritization (on...

    Here I think they may now be an equal to Verizon or US Cellular. They also have that very wide spacing here, there is enough range on the sites that you get that "0-1 bars" of service when furthest...

    More power to them. FCC ruling aside, I got a plan that was much lower cost than my previous one knowing I had a 15GB hotspot then throttle after that. What can I say, it's a distinct possibility...

    Well it's nice they let you know I guess. I suppose that was also a case of having 4G service but no 2G or 3G for voice to go over. I can guarantee you won't have any problem if you come to Iowa...

    In my area, Iowa City has microcells like every 2 blocks (honestly it's overkill), I will not see under 30mbps under any conditions and 80mbps+ is typical. Coralville, which is adjacent (like go a...

    Yeah I think if they wanted to throttle or deprioritize your connection, there's far better ways to do it than to force the phone to a more congested band. I do suspect they just don't want people...

    Yeah. To be honest that's getting me waiting with baited breath for C-Band to roll out in my area. We've got several lines that give the hotspots a nice workout and getting 3mbps instead of...

    One thing worth keeping in mind, US Cellular originally said (around 2019 or 2020) that they were intending to take until like 2024 to even complete their LTE + VoLTE rollout. They seriously ramped...

    The deprioritization and hotspot throttle are independent. I have used my 22GB total data up before the 15GB hotspot was used up, you still have unthrottled hotspot but it's subject to...

    Yup, DSS has some overhead. Effectively, shutting off 4G in some chunk of low band and running current 5G will gain like a 30% or so speedup, BUT the DSS has about a 15-20% overhead. This means if...

    Just to note, Verizon's CDMA that they're keeping up until Dec. 31, 2022 (... if they don't delay it again...), at least in my area if you shut off the LTE support the phone now shows 1x, it appears...

    I remember reading US Cellular gives their customers priority over roamers. So that does happen. I don't know first-hand though. Ironically, Verizon Wireless used to 1x roam on US Cellular...

    It just downloads a couple MBs of JPEGs and PNGs every week or so and cycles through them, it's not like continuously downloading pix 24/7 or anything. The firmware is in the 100-150MB range...

    That's what I've seen... both VZW native and USCC roaming, I've found when I lost 4G and went to 3G that I could not make a call, make a text, or send a picture message. I was in an area where I...

    Just like to comment the irony on this... in past, you'd got to AT&T or T-Mo because you could pop the SIM into whatever and if it was physically compatible with the network, it'd work; now AT&T's...

    I really can't believe these alarm systems are not made to be modular. They ran into this with analog, you'd hope after that they would have put the actual phone part on replaceable module. Oh...

    I think if I were Verizon, what I would do is go ahead and deploy new bands (C-Band and the like) 5G-only, and for now keep using DSS on existing bands. Once enough traffic is moving over 5G, keep...

    In my area, I've had a few times where I could force EVDO and get better speeds -- with a game in town the 4G could bog down signifcantly, like sub-1mbps speeds and sometimes like 100kbps, the EVDO...

    Yeah T-Mobile really made hay a few years back picking up former AT&T customers with various alarms systems and such when AT&T shut down their 2G. (Per Google, Jan 1. 2017.)
