    As you likely know, sometimes the carriers would swap their spectrum in markets with other carriers in order to get continuous blocks. Continuous blocks would then permit implementations of 20x20 or 15x15 of LTE producing higher capacity and speeds than having the blocks implemented separately.

    T-Mobile aggresively building out 600 Mhz

    post facts instead of opinions that you post
    I posted the amount of bandwidth Verizon holds in low band and T-Mobile holds in lowband and their respective consumer base sizes. Nothing about that was opinion. Completely fact. Sorry if it’s offensive.

    You've chased off most of the good people that were once here
    Care to name a few? I don’t really post anything that isn’t true. I don’t like to argue unless I know I’m right...

There's nothing wrong with opinions, but representing a biased opinions as substantiated info is counter productive, imo.

    I came to this forum to learn about Tm coverage, as I had done with other carriers and while opinions are interesting, fact based info is what most members are looking for.

    Fanboys (I don't like that term) shouldn't get their feelings hurt, when someone points out that contradiction.
    That's why I say I always want to hear the good and bad of a carrier. If TMobile stinks in duluth and surrounding areas I would want Jake to tell me, if they suck on Maine I would look to Geoff, and carrier experience in chicago and Indiana I may look to see what Gus says, nj and NY maybe checker. and some others like Bentley in ok etc. For general TMobile info I could look to Jett,Danny, or shilo for that.

    Even bad experiences can help others and there's lots to learn on the boards

    Just wondering if anybody has a T-Mobile site/s in their area that's running both 600 and 700? Curious to see if the panel setup is like the configuration used on FirstNet with panels side by side almost touching. I didn't see anything different on a handful of sites in northern Michigan this past weekend. Looks like they have a bunch of 600 planned up there by the eoy.

    This thread is about T-Mobile deployment of 600 MHz but has been thread jacked by a bunch of T-Mobile haters that are only on this board to destroy any real conversation about T-Mobile with childish name calling and insults. This thread has nothing to do with AT&T, Verizon or coverage.

    The playing field is perfectly fair...abide by the rules and stick around, or knowingly violate them and earn a vacation. Maybe you should read the rules once you get back from vacation, so you won't commit the same offense a 5th time, earning you an even longer vacation.

    It's simple folks. If someone breaks the rules, report it and the staff will look into it. If you don't like what someone says, or disagree with them, that's perfectly fine...feel free to argue your points all you want. You are NOT allowed to make personal comments about each other, though. It really is straightforward.

    Tmobile does seem pretty agrressive with the 600 builds

    Can I access 600 with the proper phone even on the $3 prepaid plan?

    For what it's worth, a quick check of CellMapper shows at least one site, in Caldwell, NJ, running both 600 and 700.

    Oh wow. I figured there would be a bunch of them by now. Appreciate the reply.....and anxious to see the continued 600 buildout.

    I didn't say that there isn't a bunch of them, just that I was quickly able to locate at least one. If it's possible in CellMapper to ask it to show all T-Mobile sites with both 600 and 700, I don't know how to do that. I just alternated between the two coverages and watched for where the Mk 1 eyeball saw overlap.

    Cellmapper has changed recently. There is now two Band options. The 1st Band filter and a second Band filter below. I tried to leave the top one as "All Bands" and the lower Band filters set to Band 12 and 71 with all other Bands unchecked. There is a trick that anytime you move the map the "Unknown Bands" get turned on again. Then when you click on a tower the left side shows the tower bands. It is now very tricky and like trying to find a needle in a haystack. That seems to work but anytime you touch the map it adds in "Unknown Bands" checks.

    Lots of the issue are there are still few phones that support Band 71. Few people have been mapped areas with Cellmapper. Also, most of the Band 71 is in rural areas where Band 12 isn't owned by T-Mobile at this point in time.

    Is that 25 miles in every direction, or just down highways. Jmo, I don't think they actually need to build towers, just hang antennas, as the current number seem to be adequate for other carriers..I know in my area, doing that would appear to be helpful as there are numerous weak/dead areas where att has service. Of course, all of this comes down to available capital to do this.

    looks like they just are placing them in a line 25 miles apart perpendicular to the interstate. I'll check cellmapper and see if these are existing towers.
