    I wouldn't push it if I were you. I consider myself lucky to have my unlimited data + unlimited (legit) tethering plan even at the rather hefty cost it commands.

    Then again, I'm not you. Go for...

    No. W-CDMA is the air interface used by UMTS and its evolutions (HSDPA, HSUPA, HSPA, HSPA+, etc). LTE is an all-new air interface which has nothing in common with W-CDMA.

    I know it'll never happen, but I would cry tears of joy if they lit up Eagle Harbor (in the Keweenaw).

    There's a nice tall tower with microwave backhaul access on Eagle Harbor Cutoff road, owned...

    Yes, I think the power limitations will restrict LTE-U to small cells. Very small ones, for the most part.

    I would imagine that they would only use satellite backhaul in the most desperate of situations. It's going to have a very unpleasant latency, and probably costs quite a lot of money as well. Since...

    Yeah, before this conversation, I probably would have guessed more than 50 total MHz too.

    I was probably lumping the SMR (Nextel/Sprint) spectrum in there without really thinking about it, then...

    As for M2M, I suspect we will see EVDO completely gone before 1x is. My feeling is that most M2M applications require either so little throughout that they will work fine on 1x, or so much that they...

    I got a chance to look it up. The 850 A block consists of an 11x11 pair and a 1.5x1.5 pair. The B block has a 10x10 pair and a 2.5x2.5 pair.

    Anyone happen to know what the guard band requirements...

    When thinking about band 5 LTE, keep in mind that one (or maybe both; I forget) of the A/B blocks is not a contiguous set of spectrum. I forget just what the split looks like, but it has the...

    Side question: When did we start calling them RRUs instead of RRHs? Or is that terminology vendor-specific?

    Conventional wisdom in GSM and I think CDMA systems is that in a coverage-limited situation (e.g. rural areas) the reverse link tends to be the limiting factor on coverage of a given cell site. Is...

    It depends. They might be able to up the power on some low-band LTE sites; others might be at the maximum practical power already. It wouldn't shock me if some coverage areas are lost when 1x is...

    Oh, that could be. The Eagle Harbor towers seem to have microwave backhaul, but I'd be willing to bet that the microwave feed site has AT&T fiber backhaul, so that could definitely be it.

    We have been over this quite a few times in this thread. No-one knows yet. Verizon has not announced when they will start selling these.
