    Completely agree. On Virgin I could always go into LTE only and still make and receive calls, no WCDMA at all.

    On Telus is seems a gamble (at least it was 2 months ago when I tried). For the...

    Doing well here. 2.22 GB out of 20 GB used, 10 days to go. The annoying thing with Bell / Telus is they cut off your mobile hotspot when you reach the cap on their '10/20/50 GB + dialup' plans. So...

    Well it might not be in the tower's congested state to offer you CA... Occupying 2+ bands at the same time isn't going to be as efficient overall as occupying one.

    Band 2: -112
    Band 4: -114
    Band 5: Not available here
    Band 7: -116
    Band 12: -103
    Band 13: -104

    I think that's all of them

    Ugh I know... It's very frustrating. It's literally smack dab in the middle of 4-5 towers, all of them just that 1-2 KM too far away. The annoying thing is both Rogers and Bell (and hence Telus)...

    Would make sense if your phone supports those bands, since it's only the newer ones. 30, 4 and 66 are all mid band spectrum, good to camp on with good capacity. Makes sense to push you onto those.

    Yes, at the time of the screenshots attached, it was on single Band 13 (5 Mhz). House is near Portsmouth Ave and Princess St in Kingston, ON.

    HSPA: Wrong camping band?

    Hi,

    Any reason why the tower would force me to camp / use band 12 (5 Mhz) here in Kingston, ON? A little surprised when running a speed test... Getting about 3.2 Mbps myself and my friends Bell...

    Every single year, every single Note. During the 7 fiasco, switched to an S8 plus. My current Note 10+ is too big for me. Next time I'll go with the non-plus version or by then we'll know what specs...

    Yes, I personally don't like the excess of small cells that companies are deploying. All things considered they will transmit high amounts of power continuously because they're communicating with...

    What is it with Canada + Ontario in general these days. We hire and elect the wrong people because there was no one else.

    After I turned off 'Amber Alerts' in Messaging -> Settings -> Emergency Alerts I still got ANOTHER (count that, it's the 3rd one) this morning when I switched off airplane mode.

    Ontario is apparently has its head so far up its *** it doesn't know what's what anymore. After sending an emergency alter about a nuclear disaster last month that didn't happen, you'd think...

    Well I don't dispute the legitimacy of the tower locations of the first map... It's more of there isn't a tower where I wish there was one.

    I don't think Canada is going to go down the mobile speed tier route... Unless it's straight to dialup :rolleyes: I remember the old unlimited iphone plans, they have access to LTE too if I recall...

    I concur. The signal is barely usable so placement of the device in question will be important. Aka if it's a vending machine on the top of it would be best, on the side that faces the tower.

    I'm not sure but I believe an HSPA has a hard limit of 32 KM (20 miles) from the tower... Also not sure why but 700 Mhz LTE doesn't seem to travel as far as 850 Mhz HSPA in my experience (and on most...

    The thing is band 30 is not something you'd typically want to amplify. Back in the old days some carriers were only on 1,900 Mhz hence the need to boost those as well.
