    FYI I found Rogers recently deployed 20MHz TDD B38 on a site in Vancouver, so something to look for. Not sure if it's massive MIMO or not, but TDD lends itself quite well to that.

    They have B4 MFBI-ing as B66 and native B66 here (forgot it was either 10 or 15 MHz). Not allowed to connect to the native B66, however.

    In general, yes. The "3.5GHz" band is called n78 in 5G NR, but it is the equivalent to LTE Band 42/43 (minus about 10MHz of lower n78). There are many other 5G bands that are essentially the...
