    Rogers will also need to build out its rural areas 'somewhat' if it wants to grow. The urban area is the 'low fruit hanging from the tree', but rural markets end up being 'what works or doesn't'.

    The unlimited plans are effectively a 'pay more for more', as there has been little incentive to _really_ go mobile for everything in Canada.

    Yup.... Pretty much need to 'let the market do its job'. Propping up one at the expense of others (and taxpayers) it typically just kicking the can down the road. Business is business - if it can't...

    Some of that service / loss of signal is more likely due to Apple and its overall antenna / lack of 4x4 MIMO than Intel chip vs. Qualcomm chip. Having both - AND - testing iPhone 7 / LG G6 (both...

    Much of this is more of that actual manufacturing of the device/antenna than the chipset or OS.

  6. SoCal road trip Valenia->Solvang->Cambria->Paso Robles->Valencia

    CA126 mostly usable service. Fillmore is in need of capacity. B4 20x20, B2 15x15, B12 5x5 yet only 5Mbps.

    Best to check the overall signal and band being reported by both devices. One may be camping on band 12 while the other may be on band 4 or 2. I don't typically have this issue, but devices can be...

    Almost all LG G series should use a similar code (model specific) *#546368#*(model #)# e.g. *#546368#*710# for TMobile G7.

    LG G6 and LG G7 (probably 8 as well) allows band selection up to band 41. No rooting required.

    The design (paint) goes with the same style that is used around L.A. area. Many of their small(er) sites are all painted that brown shade.

    I agree.
    You could also try:
    a) Your phone (check for signal with your carrier(s)
    b) Cellmapper.net (has anyone logged it yet?)
    c) Local town/city planning dept.

    T-Mobile doesn't need to have much more than 5MHz of band 12 in most areas that it does have it.

    Much of your statement assumes that most devices don't have carrier aggregation, and B12 is 5MHz in all areas with nothing else.

    That's one thing that you won't currently find in Canada. VoLTE with Bell/Telus/Rogers. I did hit +200Mbps on Bell and +100Mbps on Rogers though.

    That area between 188 and 202 is pretty much 'AT&T roaming' just like in the UP - between mile 366 and 351. If you see T-Mobile's own maps - around Sterling / I-75 (mile 195) it pretty much shows...

    Technically... I roam on just about any carrier in Canada with my T-Mobile service.
    By default it picks Bell or Telus, and is typically pretty hard to force it onto Rogers.

    From what I could tell.. Telus is overloaded on its backhaul capacity. Upload appears fine... download sucked.
