    That's because they can control every individual Internet activity/history that way.

    There is a marketing fight now between carriers and WiFi Alliance. They both fight for the same spectrum (5GHz and mostly the new 6GHz) as WiFi or LTE-U/LAA and for the same customers.

    Verizon's stated plan is pretty clear, currently activated devices on network will indeed be allowed to stay to 2021, but from 01/01/20202 no new CDMA devices will be activated, (even replacing...

    FreedomPop LTE plan is only Data, you need to use their app to make calls. Nothing to do with VoLTE or the native dialer.

    It has only LTE band 25! Why in the world someone would try to activate it today?

    Side note: Band 66 will be shown instead of 4 on the phones that support that band. Not because they added bandwidth, but because they turned on the MBFI.

    You can still use AT&T while on ground if you would have an International plan.
    Probably not on the ship in port, you might need to actually be away from the ship to get service.

    I have asked long time ago for a Total Wireless forum. If you do a search is more active than many of other subforums, mainly because of their family plans.

    On CDMA side it was needed that the IMEI to be in the provider's database of accepted phones.
    Not sure what happens today, when no new CDMA phones are accepted on the network.

    My bet is that, in those two years, more and more people in that town started using cell phones as their primary Internet device, and hence the congestion. LTE cell service was never intended to be...

    Why don't you get a local SIM there (pre-paid)? In some countries those are like $10/month or less. I can pay with my US credit card to re-charge those (personally I use Vodafone).

    Microwave 5G enabled? Because that was the discussion. Nobody argues with the utility of 5G in mid-band or low-band, just there it won't be that spectacular. T-Mobile says its 5G speeds are about 20...

    My unlocked S10 U1 gets both codecs (TotalWireless MVNO over VZW network though).

    I suspect that the phone that places the call (on VZW side) needs to support EVS-SWB codec (HD Voice +), because that's what T-Mobile uses.

    On Verizon's network both AMR-WB (HD Voice) and EVS-SWB...

    Title didn't say "some MVNO's" or "my particular MVNO". Omission of any qualifier means a board range. So it is wrong.
