    Many rural and some urban sites with Sprint and T-MOBILE as well and AT&T and Verizon typically - at least in many locations where terrain works are all located effectively at the same location. ...
  2. I suspect in urban areas, and those that are...

    I suspect in urban areas, and those that are literally duplicates... most. The ones to keep would be the rural/urban sites that are useful (i.e. fill in gaps/dead zones). Some may also depend on...

    I think I've seen some small cells around here, some probably dating back to WiMAX days.
    In general there are locally a good handful of 'metro cells' on the north side of where I am on T-Mobile....
  4. From my readings... single carrier, and in many...

    From my readings... single carrier, and in many locations, omni. To be honest, there's not _that_ much traffic typically on the roads, and coverage is the bigger barrier. Most sites are by the old...
  5. Similar to the other thread that's going on,...

    Similar to the other thread that's going on, T-Mobile and Sprint have mostly used footprint based on 1900MHz, and in many markets have similar footprint. In many of these markets, you'll end up with...

    In many areas, Sprint has had a better network - specifically, areas like Ohio, Kansas, and many old Nextel areas.
    In my area, I'm guessing about 2/3 or better are either colocated, or sites built a...

    Interesting that T-MOBILE claims to have more macros and small cells than they need. Of course, location, location,.location. Many are most likely colocated or sites next to each other, while...

    The sad part was the addition of 'limited' coverage, as a level weaker than 'fair'.

    They still have some large gaps in NW Ontario between Sauult Ste Marie and Thunder Bay that are 2g/3g only on 850MHz.

    I originally started out with Verizon when I moved from Canada to LA in 2000, but service was awful. VZW screwed up the 'new' device at their corp store and I spent months hashing it out with them,...

    The opposite happened in Socal. I had at&t wireless back in the day, and it was OK on amps/tdma, but was spectrum starved for GSM (also due to lack. Of 850MHz gear) deployed on 1900MHz which was...

    As someone that has both T-MOBILE and AT&T, I'd NOT recommend T-MOBILE for these rural areas. Their coverage maps are exaggerated in many areas. "Fair" coverage means you "might" be service...

    Many places that I've been to that are in rural CA, rural CO and rural MI, T-MOBILE has improved over a few years back, but... still has a ways to go to catch up. Gap between Montrose and...

    I suspect that at some point, with their DSS, they'll 'push' 5G devices and swing over spectrum. For the vast majority (I suspect) of Verizon users, they typically care about having service...

    If coverage outside of your home address is a factor, you're probably a lot safer sticking with what you know works. If you were willing to 'try' a prepaid SIM on your trip "in addition" to your...

    mmWave isn't so much of a bad thing, outside of the fact that it needs a clear LOS.
    Urban areas aren't too bad, outside - at least where there's enough height to be visible in most locations, and...

    I don't sit in Tmobile's board room, but I suspect they'll be deploying their 2.5 GHz in as many locations as they can for now, and milking that cow for all it's worth. It does perform well,...

    Interesting piece to note. Some of the highway sites are n41 60MHz, while those in cities are 100MHz.

    It does appear to be able to pick n41 even better than the OP8, and then again, I can also disable n71 if I want, which isn't a bad thing either. My only issues are that it's a big sluggish, and not...

    Interesting note. Picked up the freebie A32. It's not a bad phone (same size as One Plus 8), it does show a bit of information on N71/N41 in Signal Check Pro in NSA as a carrier channel on LTE. ...

    There's an old saying from Mark Twain. "There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics"
