    Not necessarily. T-Mobile can use Sprint's existing infrastructure, altho I'm not sure that's what they plan to do. T-Mobile's existing base stations can host Sprint's band-25 spectrum at the flip...

    Well, I hope so. To date, the only officialish rumors re band-41 are about 5G. Not that it matters so much to me, out here in the sticks. It just seems like band-41 LTE would be necessary to support...

    I still look for a network sharing/hosting arrangement. I see a lot of efficiencies in not having to support dual infrastructures.

    The only dumb question is the one left unasked. No. DISH is taking Band-26. They own some band-71, which they will keep. T-Mobile has a sizable chunk of band-71, nationwide.

    Probably a good idea to keep him on retainer so he doesn't bolt to yet another carrier.

    Hopefully, they will allocate at least some (e.g. 20 MHz) of band-41 to LTE to relieve the immediate problem of congestion on some urban cells.

    Whoop-te-doodilly-do. Maybe now some of these never-ending pro-anti merger threads can finally die and we can move on to discussing the mechanics of how it will happen.

    Unfortunately I lost my chart showing the alignment of TV channels and band-71 blocks in a disk crash. I've been trying to locate another copy but Google has not been very forthcoming.

    There are too many variables to account for performance in a specific indoor location. I've been looking online for a UHF atmospheric attenuation chart that would show the difference between 600 and...

    FCC's response to carrier's requests. The issue is that if band-71's down and up links were in the normal arrangement (down higher than up) they would have had to leave a significant guard band...

    It's a little difficult to provide native service where you don't have a license.

    This is where USCC has 850 MHz licenses in California. They have other low-band (600 & 700) licensed down to just north of Chico.

    The issue is that band 71's uplink and downlink are reversed relative to all other US bands. This puts band-71's uplink directly adjacent band-12's uplink. Since uplink is the weak link in the chain,...

    Pretty much all of California, north of Sacramento.

    I don't want to get embroiled in a p*ssing match but everything I've read says that DSS is not some sort of EM magic (like OAM, which works only experimentally). DSS does not give you something for...

    I think (IMHO) that I'd prefer the AT&T $15 plan with roll-over data to the T-Mobile plan that grows 500 MB every year. Of course, a lot depends on "Fees & taxes".

    Around Sacramento, it's native coverage or no coverage. USCC's California coverage is north of Sacramento.

    I'm not exactly sure where you're located but in much of N. Cal. T-Mobile roams on US Cellular. However, in the rest of the state, their rural coverage is less than stellar. For instance, it was only...

    They should participate, just to keep everyone honest, but I agree: they need to be working (spending their money) on network integration and expansion.

    Can't say for sure but T-Mobile is treating 5G like it's just the next step in cellular evolution, not a separate, premium, service. Every T-Mobile postpaid customer is supposed to have access to 5G,...

    From another thread, it's a limited time promo that you have to give your credit card to sign up for. If you forget to cancel, you get charged.

    Yes it would. It's a matter of priorities.

    Yes, it's a matter of priorities. Places like NYC are highly spectrum constrained. They need every MHz they can get into service. Miami has a similar...

    By contract with the educational institutions who actually own some of the band-41 licenses, T-Mobile will be required to continue to offer unlimited, uncapped, wireless ISP service to low-income...
