    Am I correct that TMUS has nationwide 10x10 b66? Any plans to deploy in the Bay Area for building penetration?

    Band 66 is a superset of band 4.

    If you’re talking about AWS-3, no, T-Mobile barely bought any.

    Looks like my area B71 has dropped from 10MHz to 5HMHz. Name:  1571695897521.jpeg

    Just noticed on cell mapper that towers are starting to show 600mhz on cell mapper in the RDU area. Hopefully more towers come online soon! Makes me wish the iphone could do mapping.

    I don't know how up-to-date those maps are, but we have b. 66 all over CT. It's that, b.12, 7 and 2.

    I'm not exactly sure what assertion is being made here. You have band 66 in CT because you have band 4. Band 66 is a superset of band 4. (AWS-1 and AWS-3). T-Mobile has no AWS-3 in CT. Bands 2, 12 and 71 have nothing to do with band 66.

    The real question is WHY would they do that? 5G is not going to be relevant in any major way for at least 2-3yrs at this point and since the radios are software defined, should they not be putting all available resources into LTE?

    I cannot use T-Mobile as my "daily driver" due to garbage like this.

    I just read T-Mobile will be covering 200 million people with 600mhz 5G by the end of this year 2019. They are releasing possibly TWO 600MHZ 5G
    Capable Phones. Oneplus 7T Pro 5G and a Galaxy Note 10+ 5G later this year.

    If they are using Dynamic Spectrum Sharing for 5G they should be able to run both in 10 MHz channels.

    In my area T-Mobile only bought 15X15 despite having 3 5X5 blocks went unsold, 15X15 would be good for 4G only splitting that between 4G and 5G is going to suck for both. 5G on 600 MHz isn't even that much ore efficient that 4G t begin with. Kind of pointles

    The speed increase between 15x15 or 20x20 LTE and having, say 5x5 LTE plus 10x10 or 15x15 5G is not all that much. It's kind of like having 5G just for the sake of having the phone show "5G" in the upper right corner. 5G without high-band is sort of like a day without sunshine.

    Which is my exact point. Just run a low-band 15x15 LTE block, and have actual fast indoor coverage.

    T-Mobile I really, really want to like but their network is just kind of a mess right now.

    Not sure if DSS is ready just yet. I think Ericsson is the only current vendor with a commercial DSS product according to a fierce wireless article.
