    I don't buy it. 5G is the path to the future.

    lmao they aren't doing anything. Look at 0:06, This is why Verizon cost so much. They are trying to tell us they are working hard but really are looking at wallpapers.

    "10-12 Meg during busy hour" was mentioned during the video. That's it?? Give unlimited data a little more time to get into more peoples hands and they are right back to unusable data during "busy hour".
    There is a story on Fierce wireless about reports that Verizon's network is slowing due to unlimited data.

    Is that their target minimum speed during peak times? Or what the usage gets up to during peak times?

    Verizon is starting to refarm 850Mhz for LTE in some markets according to a tweet.

    It is sad, but 5-12 Mbps is all Verizon has ever stated as their advertised data offering. No carrier has yet come close to what LTE is capable of or what they touted it as being capable of when they were singing its praises as the next big thing before its launch, which does not bode well for the coming 5G experience if it only offers paltry real-world improvements over 4G/LTE.

    Exactly. All hype and no substance.

    I don't think Verizon Wireless deploys B5 LTE for their C-RAN and ODAS solutions, like B5 and B13 these two bands are more suitable for macrocell deployments for wide area coverage.

    B5 would probably cause unnecessary interference since the cells are too close to each other, so its most likely B4 because of the possibility of large channel sizes and the RF characteristics of this band which make it ideal for densification deployments. Probably single band only because C-RAN and ODAS solutions are meant to be low cost, rapid, and simple deployments.

    It's 2017 and Verizon has no issues spending money on high band spectrum that will not be efficient for mobile usage. Yet they refuse to buy more spectrum for their LTE network which is still a evolving technology. In many areas Verizon is feeling the capacity crunch due to so many users and not enough spectrum. Reports from analysts, fellow hofo members, and rootmetrics confirm this.

    Heh I know you're joking but I'm of the mindset that, like a GM in sports, the second you make decisions based on the consumers/fans is the second you should be fired. I'm not too worried about Verizon and how they're handling their spectrum since they're not even finished deploying their LTE portfolio and the infrastructure they're creating with their small cell rollout is second to none. I'm starting to wonder if speedtests have spoiled expectations and skewed perception on how a network is actually operating considering the many variables that go into a single speedtest.

    Understanding user mobility is essential to understanding spectrum requirements. In other words all spectrum doesn't have to be "efficient for mobile usage". The spectrum VZW obtained via Straight Path is great for lower mobility applications like stadiums, gyms full of music streamers, etc. Moving lower mobility users to 28 GHz and/or 39 GHz frees up spectrum better suited for high mobility users.
