    My guess is they get equal priority; your device gets it's share of resource blocks, if it's a 5G device it get the 20-100% better speeds out of it's resource blocks.

    Of course, it's true, if...

    That's the thing though. DSS (dynamic spectrum sharing), LTE and 5G both use resource blocks, a block is some chunk of that 5, 10, or 20mhz spectrum during a timeslot. DSS just lets the site change...

    I agree it may have been better for T-Mo to just run LTE only in rural areas where 600mhz may be used extensively. In a sense this is a PR stunt, it gets a very small sliver of 5G up while slowing...

    Never seen an app measure both loaded and unloaded ping; 19ms ping is quite good. I wouldn't consider 155ms under full load bad at all. It's easy to get, say, a wifi network that gets 1-2 ms under...

    Back when Verizon Wireless formed, they ended up with no cellular licenses for the area (present day, Bluegrass has the one set of cellular licenses there and probably AT&T on the other); until VZW...

    VoLTE voice quality is quite good. 1x voice in my area used to be about a 6/10 I'd say (traffic was very high.) 1x voice is now about a 9/10 since there's little traffic on it.

    With LTE, you...

    Well, T-Mo has already come out with the $15 and $25 plans that match what they settled for with these first few states, available nationwide. I think in general the 3-year requirement amounts to...

    Other factor that could affect battery life is access points settings. I've seen power save mode off on some APs; they're used to be compatibility problems years back, but I haven't seen it...

    Looks like the settlements are similar to the previous states. The previous states got 5G coverage guarantees for 3-year and 5-year mark, some employment guarantees, low-priced price plans (a $15...

    The 0-1 bars? Nope, 5G won't help a thing. The mmwave 5G has low range, they do plan on "fill in" sites but it'd be in areas that already have strong signal, just need more speed. The "sub 6" 5G...

    But, in the prehistoric days when the possible cell phone spectrum was band 5 (850mhz) or band 2 (PCS), these would have already been PCS-only markets, so presumably they already have enough site...

    I wouldn't go quite as far as saying they wasted their money; if someone lives or travels through an area with mmwave coverage, then enjoy the huge speeds and more power to you.

    But yeah......

    I don't know if T-Mo's going to need band 12 that badly here to be competitive here; VZW has good speeds in town (where they're running band 4, 2, 13, and 5) but out of town a lot of sites are band...

    Yeah I doubt t-mo even bid on band 12, since they had no service statewide when the auction took place.

    Eastern Iowa coverage?

    I hear that. I enjoy discussions over what a carrier "could" do (i.e. they deploy all their spectrum everywhere), and what they may do in the future. But predictions? It's tricky; VZW at least...
