    The only value of 5G today is marketing for idiots who don't know what 5G even IS, and for that purpose, it doesn't matter what frequency it runs on or how it works.

    The actual benefits of 5G...

    Denying the merger would have been both the legally correct decision, as well as the correct decision for maintaining competition in the wireless market.

    AT&T and Verizon are rejoicing. They are...

    Sprint would have been bought by another company, just at a far lower price. Who knows if they would have grown or shrunk, but any competition would have been better than none. Unfortunately, due to...

    Bands can only handle so many phones locked on to them. AT&T aggressively moves phones up to B2/4/30 as well.

    T-Mobile has a lot of spectrum that's largely unused in rural areas, but neither Sprint nor T-Mobile have many customers there. Urban and suburban are where they are going to have to play a bit of a...

    I'm personally happy with AT&T, and for me, AT&T provides better service out of the two major players, but the simple fact of the matter is that Verizon is building a huge lead over all the other...

    I could attempt to go through it step by step, but I will never be able to write anything like what Nilay Patel put together for The Verge:

    Of course, this decision by the Judge for T-Sprint will go down in history as one of the worst decisions, especially given the absurdly poor legal rationale for it. Unfortunately, there is no going...

    AT&T needs to figure it's various brands out. They are a total mess. They've got half a dozen video services that nobody can figure out. Tech journalists and nerds like us are struggling to keep...

    Verizon has the upper hand with 5G by a long shot. 5G itself isn't going to matter for years, what matters is that the CAPEX Verizon is putting towards 5G small cells also benefits their 4G LTE...
  11. Verizon doesn't care. Less competition and higher...

    Verizon doesn't care. Less competition and higher prices are better for Verizon, as they don't have as much price pressure, and it would take T-Sprint a decade to catch up in network quality if they...

    Sprint is way behind in moving to VoLTE, but my...

    Sprint is way behind in moving to VoLTE, but my guess is that Sprint CDMA dies between EOY 2022 and EOY 2023, leaving only USCC and some tiny regional carriers that are independent or part of Verizon...

    I'd be surprised if it were as low as 50%, as virtually all phones today will work on any carrier with the appropriate firmware updates. Over the next year or two, the natural upgrade cycle will...

    Yup, 5G small cells also do 4G. Ironically, in most areas, once cells are densified for 5G, they will have so much 4G capacity that 5G isn't too useful for phones, but the cost is basically the same...

    Why would Verizon not offer access to their 5G...

    Why would Verizon not offer access to their 5G network? It can only offload data from 4G, and they can depri or throttle it down for MVNO customers, which is what cable is.

    AT&T doesn't resell...

    Verizon is larger than AT&T in terms of postpaid phone accounts. AT&T probably has more active SIMs on their network due to in-car connectivity and some other IoT/M2M types of things, as well as more...

    Correct on the first two points, I'm not sure about an advantage over Verizon. Since B71 and B13 are almost identical in propagation, T-Mobile would have had to have a higher tower density, they...

    They have a ton of mid-band spectrum, but it's going to take 2-3 years just to combine the networks that they already have, much less make any meaningful expansions in coverage. And AT&T is already...

    That would be near impossible on most of USCC's network. They have great coverage in a lot of places where other carriers struggle, but their speeds are uninspiring to say the least. They do the job,...

    Yeah, I saw that, some posts must have vanished, as there's nothing that bad in his post history.



    No carrier is the best everywhere, but having had T-Mobile and AT&T side by side for 6 months,...

    No **** sherlock. Verizon probably won't do lowband 5g in markets where they don't have n5.

    Yeah, some of the B12-only areas are getting B71, but that's still pathetic. It's frustrating that they didn't spend just a tiny bit more to do their rural rollouts correctly with mid-band capacity...

    Yeah, in some areas they don't even have B2 deployed. Much of their rural network is pretty poor, it's just there to color in the map.

    Facts are facts and DSS does reduce overall capacity. I doubt we'll see n13 for a while. Probably n2 in markets where Verizon doesn't have B5.
