    My original plan, which T-Mobile forced me off of, was originally from DigiPH PCS in Feb of '98. Originally it covered only DigiPH's service area from the LA-MS state line to a bit east of DeFuniak...

    One panel per sector just comes from using a cross-polarized antenna, with its inherent lower gain. This can be done with any band, except 5, which has to be vertically polarized, because (AFAIK)...

    T-Mobile did something like this a few years ago. I was on a grandfathered regional plan that was so old that no one knew exactly what was included in my region. Added to this I had an unlimited VPN...

    One thing to keep in mind is that, provided that the Sprint merger goes through, T-Mobile will fall heir to Sprint's requirement to provide low-cost (e.g. $10/mo) unlimited wireless Internet service...

    That's like killing a mosquito with a bazooka. It's extreme and in some cases you can miss. If your SIM is active on the ship and you remove the SIM, the ship may still claim that you are there....

    Perhaps. And I'm also sure you and I could also pool our 401Ks and buy Sprint but I'm not interested. None of the other "options" could get over Sprint's ever-deepening debt. The only company that...

    The uplinks of band 12 and 71 are adjacent. (Band 71 was intentionally made "up side down".) Since uplink is generally the limiting factor on range, bands 12 and 71 have almost identical range.

    A lot of this could have been avoided if the FCC about 20 years ago had made it a condition of obtaining mid-band licenses (PCS) that a carrier not be able to retain more than 10x10 MHz of 850 MHz...

    T-Mobile should know, to the penny, what it costs to build and operate a wireless network. They should be happy to offer to host other carriers at just slightly less than that price. It's like...

    T-Mobile doesn't list their international roaming pariners and is entirely capable of using one in one area and another in a different area.

    Can you save today's Baskin-Robins codes? They showed just a QR code, no card number & PIN. I can extract a 15-digit number from the QR code but still can't enter it in the app because it has no PIN.

    I would not count the band 14 in congested urban areas like NYC, DC, L.A., Chicago, etc. First responders will keep that pretty well congested.
