    It seems silly. The only remaining reason to have a home phone is audio quality, like with Fios voice, but a home phone that uses VoLTE wouldn’t be any better quality than a cell phone. I can’t...

    Has anyone been able to find hard data on the capacity of LTE only versus the same amount of spectrum shared between LTE and 5G using DSS? I would assume that the latter has more capacity because of...

    60 mph on the highway through a major downtown area. I was surprised that it held on long enough for a speed test!

    Earlier today while being driven down the highway at 80 mph, I encountered a 5G signal despite being in area where it officially hasn’t been deployed yet. I bet it’d have been even faster...

    The range was crap. It dropped whenever I rounded a corner, presumably because it had to connect to a different UWB small cell. They definitely don't have beamforming enabled here because I've seen...

    There will be no way to use Verizon's new C-Band spectrum without a new phone, such as the iPhone 12 series, because so far there are no phones that support C-Band LTE. Only C-Band 5G.

    I'm also shocked that I've never once seen Band 48, and I've had a phone that supports it since last autumn + traveled through several major cities in the interim.
  16. What determines whether an area gets 5G Nationwide?

    Verizon has 10+10 MHz Band 5 in my area, but absolutely no 5G Nationwide. They donít even have 5G Nationwide between the UWB cells in downtown! You go straight from LTE to 5G UW and back again. Iím...

    I imagine it might be possible if they speed test using short bursts over like 20 seconds and then average out the results.

    I haven’t seen official confirmation from Verizon that they’re turning off CDMA entirely on any specific date, and I just re-verified it on their site.

    Bands Used for 5G Nationwide

    So Verizon is definitely using n5 and n2, but have any of you spotted n66 or n77? (n77 is the NR equivalent of LTE Band 48, CBRS, because it also includes the upcoming C-Band spectrum.)
