    I agree. And any plan needs to start with fixing service in the territory they have now. I wish they'd been more aggressive with 3G and LTE here on the coast. I would have probably stayed with them...

    When I had C Spire I thought their advantage was with customer service. I always got treated right by the folks down here in Baldwin County at the Foley office. Never really had to wait, never got...

    I'm not sure how Canada chooses to allocate its spectrum. The ITU sets the guidelines but some slices of spectrum are used differently in different countries, which explains why we have such a...

    The spectrum is used for microwave relays between news gathering trucks and the studio by way of ESB, apparently.

    This is an interesting turn of events because usually it's the telephone...

    I'm lucky. "My" Verizon tower is across the street. Maybe 2/10ths of a mile as the crow flies, but line of sight. The XLTE signal is much, much weaker than what I got on 700 MHz but it seems to...

    Heh. New phone, now AWS-capable and I've only run one test on it so far, on December 12th of 2014. But it was fast: 63.23 down, 20.53 up, 71 ms ping. I'd post a screencap but… I'm lazy.

    I see speeds like these in crowded use scenarios and I remind myself that Verizon is introducing LTE voice calling and trying to move everyone off 1x. LOL, yeah, might need to do something about...

    What part of Birmingham was that? I spent some time in the western suburbs and it was slow as molasses when I could get a connection at all, but much faster in Alabaster.

    I'm not complainin', mind ye. AT&T's LTE here is still likely limited by their backhaul to just 2 Mbps, Sprint's LTE is not much better and T-Mobile is still EDGE only this far from the city. Plus,...

    Ever since Verizon rolled out their AWS (XLTE) equipment in my area, my LTE speeds have tanked. In April of last year, I hit 58 Mbps down and 15.90 up from this same tower and same location. Today:...

    Just goes to show how far behind the times I am, I wasn't aware there was even such a thing as WiDEN and had to look it up. Not really impressive, data-wise. Wikipedia states it maxes out at 160...

    I would be surprised if Southern Linc offers anything faster than dialup. iDEN didn't really have data baked in as far as I know.

    C Spire's voice network may be solid but their data network is...

    They're still doing that "limited to 30 minutes of streaming" nonsense? I thought they'd have dropped that by now. They still advertise heavily here in the Mobile-Pensacola area but their network...

    I'm beginning to think there's some sort of minor outage in my area. I'm getting regular LTE speeds on some servers (20-50 Mbps down) and on others I'm getting .1 or less. Is anyone else in the...

    Wow, 20 hours is good. I don't think I get that even on days when I don't use Waze at all. I think there's some sort of bug with Google Maps, too, that destroys battery life and I'm wondering if no...
