    I didn't recognize the flat square panel ones as cell antennae as I thought they used the more rounded edge ones, like I posted.
    However today I drove by a site that is newer and noticed the squared...

    Hard to see, but if there are only small (high frequency) antennae and Nokia equipment, I vote yes.

    If bell and rogers are against something, it's probably good good for the consumer. So I say stay the course, we're on the right track.

    If you have to go out of your way for one of the two, I would want band 13 (700MHz) as that's the one that will have better coverage than current frequencies.
    And of course you'll want band 66 for...

    Unfortunately they don't have a flag on their phones page like they do for LTE, but if you click into a phone page, there should be a box that says wifi-calling ready (nearly all LGs + ZTE):

    There are a lot of assumptions about why it's not available instantly to all devices like on other carriers.

    Works fine for me on v20.
    The odd time it's enabled but not connecting/showing the icon, a reboot fixes everything and it connects right away.

    I had not heard they allow any AWAY use in home zones.

    Either way, I manually set my phone to Home 7 years ago and only change it to auto when I want to use Away.
    No accidental charges, ever.

    The LTE and HSPA are on pretty much the same frequency, from the same towers. Due to the way the signal strength works between the two, there's no way LTE will give you better signal than HSPA if...

    A 20 name petition? LOL
    How about they get a counter petition of who does want it, and see how 20 stacks up against 200/2000/20000/x?

    My opinion on these is that I'd gladly take one if offered for free out of goodness, but definitely don't want involvement in any shady business, including resale and potential fraud/bogus codes.

    V20 no noticeable difference.
    If anything, running airplane mode to stop network searching and using Wi-Fi calling would greatly reduce battery consumption if no/borderline signal

    LTE is generally good speed and uncongested. But if 3G is congested, calls could fail. VoLTE is badly needed to fix this so you never need to drop down to a...

    I average 30mbps.
    Lowest 10mbps, but even then it's snappy to load things as there isn't the delay to get things flowing, as there is on 3G.
    Max I've seen so far is 66mbps.
    I'll have to test when...
