    Whether it's technically possible to run B12+B71 CA or not, I doubt they'd do it (other than maybe markets that ONLY have 12 and 71.)

    What VZW does on my KeyOne (that supports 2xCA) is use B4+B13...

    Well, there'll be 2 reasons for that.

    1) B71 is probably a 5 or 10mhz channel, which would of course limit speeds compared to 35mhz of CA spectrum.

    2) I would expect in areas with B4, B2,...

    Not surprising; 600mhz is being used by tv stations (channels 38-51), and being cleared out region by region over 10 phases through the middle of 2020. The channels above 38 get moved below 38 and...

    Yes; what I found at least locally, based on running speedtests on lines both over and under the (in my case) 22GB "subject to deprioritization" threshold, and in an area where congestion levels vary...

    I'd second the 5G is very unlikely.

    4G? The phone supports 25 LTE band :lol: . Should be good; Google lists UK having LTE bands 1, 3, 7, 8 and 20 (with the phone supporting 3, 7, 8 and 20.) ...

    VZW had a few locked phones (Motorola Droid 2 Global had some bit of code to block use of "310" or "311" (i.e. US) SIMs (the international roaming was provided with a Vodafone Netherlands SIM with a...

    Nope. If they're experiencing poor voice quality and dropouts on AT&T in this apartment building, it's because AT&T has poor service in that building (or the phone gets poor reception, or the UMTS...

    Well, on a 40mbps DSL line (that gets about 32mbps) and a nice clean 5ghz wifi channel, I've intermittently had a few of the music services load nice and slow, intermittently fail to play, or stop to...

    I thought I had read about people running whatever phone on Verizon's VoLTE. But, to do it you would have to activate your SIM on a supported phone first, make sure HD Voice is on on that phone,...

    In terms of deprioritization... it's subject to deprioritization in times of congestion. What I've found through some testing is in practice... well vzw's stated 4g speed is to expect 6-12 mbps. ...

    Ok with me. I've seen it in action... speedtest shows huge speeds while youtube or whatever loads just fast enough to keep a 10 or 15 second buffer. If i'm watching a whole video, no harm done; if...

    Well, the hatches of 2G are probably Bug Tussle. To be honest, the coverage in that whole area sucks. I have Verizon Wireless, and they roam off US Cellular. Due to the terrain, get off highway...

    In general the low bands (600-900mhz) bands like 5, 12, 13, 71, etc. will have fairly similar range. The 1700-2100 (band 2, band 4, etc.) and the PCS G-H will have similar range to each other. The...

    I doubt US Cellular or Verizon would put that many sites in, they already both have basically wall-to-wall coverage. That said, VZW in northeast Iowa at least has oddly positioned sites (it's not...

    Yeah I think that is exactly it; i'm pretty sure vzw cranks up band 13 (and it might make sense to do with other low band like band 5) to ensure coverage, while tuning their mid band (band 4 and 2)...

    Well, for example I recently went along highway 151 from Iowa City to Madison. Iowa City has about 80,000 population (including the students), and has (in order of how often I see it) band 4, 13, 2,...

    Naw, I've got band 13 but my phone will camp on band 4 as soon as it gets like -120 signal on it ("1 bar"), or occasionally band 2. A few others I've looked at (and a T1114V home phone with wifi)...

    Well AFAIK LTEira roaming not being throttled applies to both these plans, they probably cover 1/2 or maybe 2/3rds the roaming areas on the map.
