    T-Mobile 5G Speed Test Results

    Just took this on I-75 just north of Birch Run, Michigan. They are utilizing all of their 600 MHz here!

    Place where I had the best speeds in MI were a little south of there. Fenton/Brighton area I hit 200Mbps a year ago. Birch run was a little more spectrum starved.

    AT&T... your world, throttled.

    Overall, speeds are pretty good. I believe T-Mobile has 20 MHz on both B2 and B66 in a small area in that part of MI. PCS was chopped up with a lot of spectrum boundries as well. Busy, busy time on a Friday evening too.

    This was in the Flint area. Lots of spectrum.

    Just got my Pixel 5 on Google Fi. Impressive upload, but ping is a bit high.



    A screenshot from SignalCheck Pro from earlier in the day showing 5G-NR:

    An area close to me just got upgraded to mid band 5G. I recently got speedtest over 200 megabits recently.

    The fury of 60 MHz n41. Test that out during the busy part of the day I like to see how it holds up. No reason why it shouldn’t stay above 250 mbps

    I've got VZW, but man when T-Mo gets n41 rolled out here (Iowa City), they'll clean VZW and USCC's clocks (VZW here, I get like 125mbps near a fast site and 20mbps typical; that's 4G, but since the 5G here is DSS I'd expect about 150mbps near the site and about 25mbps typical speeds on it.) I hope they pop up n41 here and offer that home broadband, the cable/DSL choices here are pricey so they'd get plenty of customers on that. (Supposedly sprint had a channel or two of band 41 LTE up here... but Sprint service here was bad enough right up to point of T-Mo purchase that it probably would have been hard to tell based on a speed test or anything if you were using it or not.)

    Where I live, work and travel, my 5G will be N71 with a little N41.

    My speeds are not awesome, but the reward is that the 5G seems to carry capacity better.

    Before the iPhone 12 Pro I would get maybe 125 Mbps on a solid LTE-A system when I'd start working but late in the day at the peak I'd be lucky to get 25 Mbps.

    Now with 5G, I can hold the 100 Mbps-plus speeds much later into the day. In an hour where I would be most challenged on the LTE-A system, I am still usually over 80 Mbps on the 5G system.

    At home in the country, I'm on N71 and most of my travels into metropolitan areas are also N71. I have only a little N41 coverage in Washington, Manassas and Woodbridge.

    Oh yeah, n41 2.5ghz versus n71 600mhz, n71 will have much much more range, not surprised that a lot of coverage is on n71.

    Good to read that the 5G is holding up well capacity-wise. I think 5G NR has tricks to allow quite a bit more channel reuse than 4G (same channel resources i.e. frequencies and time, can be used to send to multiple 5G devices in cases where 4G could send to one). It'll be a nice outcome all around if it turns out that works out well in practice, wouldn't increase the peak speed one bit but some large increase in channel capacity would mean much higher average speeds.

    I'm not sure if I've ever hit an n41 site. If I'm on SA I can tell which band I'm on and it's always n71/ NR 600. If n41 is only 20x20 in deployment, unless I have CA on NR as well as LTE (NSA), I wouldn't see an improvement. If (when) n41 is deployed at +60x60... Then I'll notice a huge increase.

    A little on the slower side today. Wonder how many iPhone 12's are out. Name:  Screenshot_20201104-202816.jpeg

    I’ll test once I get the 12 ProMax, I thought I could drop to a “regular” iPhone since i do not need LiDAR or the telephoto lens, but the battery life was atrocious even in LTE-only mode for my usage patterns.

    I’ve got the OnePlus here too, but it seems to mostly want to hang onto n71

    It took a bit to find, but there is a band selector with "Shortcut lite" app. Name:  Screenshot_20201105-085754.jpg
