    Why do you care about the "speeds"? When data is limited at 5GB per 30 days... it's irrelevant if the speed is 5, 8 or 80 Mbps.

    They keep calling this plan "CDMA". You will probably never see CDMA on your device, it's on the way out on Verizon's network. All new devices are working in LTE only, with calls using VoLTE and...

    Then that is $47.50 for "Unlimited data" with no speed caps. Like I said that's only 25GB of LTE speed... And streams in SD only.

    I think that Cricket's "Unlimited data" means 22GB of 8MBps speed,...

    You need to get fixed Internet. A mobile phone plan is not supposed to cover the video streaming usage.
    Actually most of the MVNO's will limit the resolution to SD quality when streaming video. And...

    They can't cover decently the areas they have licenses in 4G and now they want to brag about 5G. They're so hip! Also, in some insane business decision,...

    The whole system with fixed allocated frequencies is antiquated and broken. It was necessary in 1900's but now in 2020 is just a dinosaur.
    This is an example of carriers having bought exclusive...

    If they will raise everyone's plans to pay for "5G" that would be showing that 5G is just a revenue enhancing scheme for carriers.

    In order that DSS to work, is absolutely needed that 5G and 4G in that specific band to be the same technology (FDD or TDD).

    For lower frequencies it will be FDD. So it will be able to be shared dynamically. TDD will be only for microwave.

    Even my new S10? Or my son's new iPhone 11 Pro Max?
    Ah, no? I would have to buy a new $1000+ phone?

    They would have to set up their own WiFi voice server. Like they have now for MMS and RCS.

    I wonder what happens in congestion cases. Will 5G have priority of getting those time slots from LTE? Or the other way around?

    Actually the carriers, even for their subscribers, deduct the WiFi minutes for the total allowance (if not unlimited voice). So I don't think that's the issue, probably is logistics of setting a WiFi...

    FCC could push for a shared spectrum all over US, like CBRS. Then it won't matter how many providers there are.

    Sure, that would mean they would have to forgo the big revenues resulted from...

    The unlocked phones don't show VoLTE indicator while in a call. But make a call (voicemail will do), and if the LTE is still active on the screen (not the 1x for CDMA), then you have VoLTE.
