    How does your Fi phone work inside if you put it into airplane mode then turn the WiFi back on.

    I know. I sometimes go to the Len Foote Hike Inn near the southern end of the Appalachian Trail. There is one spot where I can get a couple bars of band-12 signal. Needless to say, I'm not watching...

    First, band 12 and 71 aggregate with mid-bands. A phone can use mid-band for download and low-band for upload. So, it is possible that the whole is greater than the sum of the parts.

  4. Yeah, well, not if the past is any guide....

    Yeah, well, not if the past is any guide. Probably 5x5 LTE and 15x15 5G. But that's just based on the fact that AFAIK no one has seen band 71 deployed as anything but 5x5 LTE, so far.

    Also, is...

    It depends on the persona he needs to affect to carry out his new role. I tend to believe that he's been enjoying the leather-jacketed, trash-talking, bad-boy shtick and will continue it if possible.

    Technically, JL only has to stay CEO of the combined company for a day to fulfill that promise.
    And OBTW, I think indentured servitude has been outlawed for a while. So, a company can't force...

    You'd think they'd be able to look at census data and predict which cells need mid-band but they may be waiting for the sectors to show up as congested before they decide to spend the penny on the...

    I've sworn off getting embroiled in debates about what T-Mobile might do in the future. I thought they'd deploy as much band 71 for LTE as possible while awaiting 5G. Wrong! I thought they'd always...

    At any given time, a given slice of spectrum can be used for either LTE or 5G NR but not both. The minimum allocation for LTE band 71 is 5x5 MHz. This means that they can have 5 MHz of LTE and 15 MHz...

    There are a lot of places where T-Mobile doesn't deploy their full allocation of spectrum. May be that they're saving AWS for 5G? 15 MHz of 600 plus 20 MHz of AWS would make a good 5G setup.

    Once again, band-25 is s superset of band-2. A band-2 signal is also a band-25 signal. It just needs a MFBI to declare it as such. Your seeing a T-Mobile band-25 signal says more about your phone...

    For the same reason that the lower 700 MHz licenses were issued in 6x6 MHz blocks: It was the existing TV channelization in 6 MHz per channel. When 600 MHz was licensed, the LTE pattern of 5 MHz...

    Much of JL's compensation is in stock options. Just look at T-Mobile's share prices from 2012 (~$10) to today (~$80) and you can see why he might want to say, "My job here is done" and move on.
  14. For some reason, which I don't understand, they...

    For some reason, which I don't understand, they seem to be "saving" the rest for 5G. The reason I don't understand is that their base stations are supposed to be able to be reconfigured remotely. So...

    In the grand scheme of things, just about all of NJ qualifies as "large urban area". Yes, I know that there are rural areas but NJ has the highest population density of all the states.

    They seem to have a priority scheme:
    1. Large urban areas
    2. Places where they don't have a band-12 license
    3. Everywhere else.

    Within each of these there are other priorities. Like:

    What happened is that the FCC neglected to "perfect the lien" by publishing it in the Federal Register. Without a valid lien, the FCC lacked legal basis for repossessing the licenses.

    This is pretty much a throw-away offer. Keep in mind that T-Mobile inherits Sprint's contractual requirement to offer unlimited, unthrottled wireless ISP to non-profits and low-income for $10/mo by...

    Looking on CellMapper, it appears that they have a couple of sites up and running in the general area, out to the west.

    Simple. The companies have different "visions" for what 5G will become and are implementing those visions. Apples and oranges. Different races. Someone who's a second behind at the start of a sprint...

    I agree that most Uncarrier moves have been items that could be implemented in the billing system (e.g. Binge On) or website (T-Mobile Tuesday). However, I really would notice Sprint roaming since...

    "Way behind"??? I'd say "Weeks behind" and that's just because they don't care to make any monumental 5G screw-ups like Verizon did with their 5G roll-out belly-flop.
