    I don't think people are leaving in droves like you think. They still have a ton of customers and will continue to have those (and even gain some back, especially with c band deployment starting to begin in December for some of the spectrum they just won).

    Normal people don’t speed test. They pick a carrier based on a combination of what their friends/family like and what the service costs, and they only leave if their service is poor enough that calls cut out & drop or data stalls in the middle of trying to do things, or if another carrier offers a sufficiently attractive deal to justify the hassle of porting over. As long as Verizon delivers acceptable, functional service to its customers and stays competitive in terms of pricing and special offers, they’ll be fine.

    I agree with this 100%. The average person who just streams video/music and checks emails and texts will never be able to tell the difference between 6 Mbps and 600 Mbps. I have several techie friends and I’m the only one who runs speed tests. Everyone else just says that service “just works” or it doesn’t.

    Verizon lost 178K last quarter. It only took losing 400K in 6 weeks for Verion to bring back unlimited after saying it was unnecessary just weeks earlier

    Has anyone seen any c-band upgraded towers. I’m curious what a fully updated towers setup will look like. I’m wondering if a fully loaded tower will have 5 panels per sector. I’m wondering if they will use the normal 2 slim panels close together for LTE/5G bands 5-2-4/66-13 then use one panel for CBRS, another for c-Band, and a last panel for MmWave. I also think their may be a few panels that can do both CBRS and C-Band on the same panel but some of the tech specs I have seen look a little confusing.
