    B2/25 mfbi

    Is Verzion planning to do that? Looks like it's happened in Seattle Washington.

    I don't know how that's possible. That's a Sprint band. I'm waiting to be educated on how this is possible.

    Sprint only uses it cause of the G Block cause that's only covered by B25. Blocks A-F can be used as either Band 2 and, or B25.

    Wow. I had no idea. I figured the portion VZW owned was firmly band 2 only. Learn something new every day.

    Looking at the UARFCN, it appears Verizon is roaming on 10 MHz of Sprints B25 PCS B block. 1870-1880 / 1950-1960 are Sprint frequencies not Verizon's. It's not MFBI but rather roaming.

    I don't know what you mean? The UARFCN changes when it's Band 25 vs B2. If it was roaming it would say extended. Also VZW and, Sprint don't have a LTE Roaming agreement. This was also in Seattle where the two carriers swapped spectrum. So VZW now has 10x10 and Sprint will go 15x15 soon.

    This shows that both carriers own that. Guess we will have to wait and see if this pops up in any other Markets.

    Spectrum Omega has a mention on their about page, that they cannot show blocks that are split between the carriers accurately in all cases. It mentions that when there is certain kinds of splitting or sharing, that the map will indicate both parties own the whole spectrum. In reality, one carrier owns x number of MHz and the other owns the rest. It's a limitation of the underlying Google maps backend they use.
