    I've also seen that due to license boundaries; used to be here, you'd have the digital signal drop off right at the county line (seriously, within a foot or two of the county line sign, it was pretty...

    Agreed. It seems like it could get quite expensive; but, per some googling, looks like the FCC has begun capping some charges municipalities can charge for small cells. Apparently capped at $500...

    Well, Verizon can anticipate it if they want. Carriers advertised a vision of no wifi needed due to 4G too. No thanks, I don't need to pay a $20-35 fee for each computer I have, thanks. I have...

    Yep agreed. If you have enough download speed it really doesn't matter how much you've got specifically.



    Agreed. I've run the bluetooth tether on my phone, it gets about 1.5-2mbps and...

    True for me too. One of the reasons I originally went with Verizon, back then, Sprint and Verizon relied extensively on roaming, AT&T had just finished transitioning to GSM with no GSM roaming...

    In my area, by how often I see it, I'll see band 4, 13, 2, and 5. I suspect in a lot of markets, band 4 (and 66 if they have it) probably allow the largest channels and so best peak speeds. I ran...

    Here in the eastern Iowa area, they've added a bunch of band 4 sites in Iowa City within the last year or so, they originally had about a dozen sites city-wide (and added 4 or 5 more around the...

    Maybe LAA? (That is using 5ghz band for additional LTE.) It should be band 46, but a) since it shares the 5ghz band with 5ghz wifi, I wouldn't be surprised if the phone didn't treat is specially in...

    Must be an iphone thing, unless there really is some real network problem in your area. I don't get any variation in LTE call quality, I frequently see like 1 or 2 bars on band 4 and it's fine...

    Not a given; a handful of phones supported SVDO (the technology mentioned in the link given) to run *3G* data while in a 1x call. LTE did indeed allow simultaneous LTE data and 1x voice call (my...

    Some bands the requirement was by area coverage and not POPs; maybe it's a license protection site for a area-based license? Alternately, VZW does run wireless backhaul site-to-site quite a bit (run...

    Possible. As an example, around here in eastern iowa, you get to like Iowa City, they've got 4 bands of LTE, I think they are running bands 13 and 5 on the cell sites they've had up for decades, and...

    My guess is they get equal priority; your device gets it's share of resource blocks, if it's a 5G device it get the 20-100% better speeds out of it's resource blocks.

    Of course, it's true, if...

    That's the thing though. DSS (dynamic spectrum sharing), LTE and 5G both use resource blocks, a block is some chunk of that 5, 10, or 20mhz spectrum during a timeslot. DSS just lets the site change...

    I agree it may have been better for T-Mo to just run LTE only in rural areas where 600mhz may be used extensively. In a sense this is a PR stunt, it gets a very small sliver of 5G up while slowing...

    Never seen an app measure both loaded and unloaded ping; 19ms ping is quite good. I wouldn't consider 155ms under full load bad at all. It's easy to get, say, a wifi network that gets 1-2 ms under...

    Back when Verizon Wireless formed, they ended up with no cellular licenses for the area (present day, Bluegrass has the one set of cellular licenses there and probably AT&T on the other); until VZW...

    VoLTE voice quality is quite good. 1x voice in my area used to be about a 6/10 I'd say (traffic was very high.) 1x voice is now about a 9/10 since there's little traffic on it.

    With LTE, you...

    Well, T-Mo has already come out with the $15 and $25 plans that match what they settled for with these first few states, available nationwide. I think in general the 3-year requirement amounts to...

    The 0-1 bars? Nope, 5G won't help a thing. The mmwave 5G has low range, they do plan on "fill in" sites but it'd be in areas that already have strong signal, just need more speed. The "sub 6" 5G...

    I wouldn't go quite as far as saying they wasted their money; if someone lives or travels through an area with mmwave coverage, then enjoy the huge speeds and more power to you.

    But yeah......

    I don't know if T-Mo's going to need band 12 that badly here to be competitive here; VZW has good speeds in town (where they're running band 4, 2, 13, and 5) but out of town a lot of sites are band...
