    True.
    Most US government contracts may not ever leave AT&T, since they might have been modified to include FirstNet priority access.

    State and smaller government contracts might be possible to...

    Agreed. That is why they will have trouble with getting 5G really active in some rural areas, because they didn't plan enough for LTE anchor bands, being mid-band AWS or PCS.

    Pretty sure he is referencing the LTE part of the conflated statement, not the 5G NR network. He's not far off from the truth regarding the LTE part of the statement. Most LTE on B71, where it was...

    It definitely depends on location. I would presume rural locations with little LTE utilization, and maybe areas with lots of backhaul, will have the best speeds.

    Most places that had B71 LTE prior to December lost at least half their bandwidth to the 5G rollout.

    Are they just waiting until they get a better offer from AT&T to drop T-Mobile?

  14. The final obstacle to the T-Mobile/Sprint Merger Begins Tomorrow

    Most of Sprintís key demographic is barely covered by 5G or not even covered at all. At least T-Mobile can market its 5G with some level of certainty that its similar-demographic customers can...
