    You could be in California... where it is similar.... yet taxes are crazy high, as is regulation, and jobs are fleeing the state.

    I don't know how much the antenna will have to do on those - typically most should be 'similar enough' to pass FCC regulations.
    The 20' difference in antenna 'can' play a role depending on the...

    It isn't too weird where I am. Almost all use is B4/B2 carrier agg. B12 is rarely in use.
    That being said - it is on the sector that faces residential area - and is basically unused, and even low...

    Cell breathing and capacity (spectrum and/or backhaul) all can cause issues.
    No backhaul = more congestion / retries on the spectrum side.
    No spectrum = lots of noise / no throughput and degraded...

    When I tested on band 12... I forced my phone to band 12 only. All test were run on the same site. Similarly.... TMobilebhas 15x15 B71 but only 10x10 deployed. B2 has 15x15 as well, but 5x5 is...

    Down here in SoCal, I ran a few tests... 5x5 B12 gave me 40Mbps/10Mbps, B2 10x10 gave me 71Mbps/26Mbps, B4 20x20 gave me 143Mbps/55Mbps. Running with CA B2/B4 I got 212Mbps/24Mbps. I haven't seen...

    I'd expect range to be similar, if not the same. Actual use will depend on how much traffic is on one vs. the other. I.e. a saturated 5MHz on B12 may drop out of service due to noise/traffic vs. a...

    Yeah, the area doesn't look like I would expect any large chains in a mesh but a couple/few sites in rural spots backhauling to a town/city. Eg. I expect Houghton/Hancock MI to have fiber as it is a...

    It sure would make for better reading.

    The one 'good' thing that I can say about that area... T-Mobile has a LOT of spectrum deployed.

    Total: 68.5 MHz
    AWS-1: 25 MHz
    PCS: 17.5 MHz
    700: 6 MHz...

    Somehow, I don't think that this site would be overwhelmed with 150Mbps backhaul to some other location.

    This is true. It also depends on overall usage in those areas. Many areas - even in SoCal have extremely low usage. If a site is pushing only L600 10MHz x 3 sectors, it might hit ~50Mbps 'max'...

    It truly depends on location. As I mentioned - in a place like Kinross (1/2 way between Sault and St. Ignace), I hit 92Mbps. Most likely local fiber or backhauled to Sault or St. Ignace by...

    I don't think its everywhere in the eastern UP, eg. Sault Ste. Marie itself didn't have band 71 when I was there in June, however, Kinross did.
    Also, what is that network backhaul in these areas. ...

    It varies from place to place. I've found that 'outdoors', T-Mobile has usable service in many rural areas, but in general, typically has many places listed as 'covered' that have no service at all....

    I suspect that a lot of northern MI is typically AT&T or Verizon, and can get congested in some places. Many rural places that I've been to where T-Mobile has site, and a decent amount of spectrum,...

    I didn't have that issue when I was in Kinross, MI on B71 (with CA, mind you). I hit 74.3Mbps going north and 55ms ping. On the return, I hit 92.2Mbps 133ms ping.

    That sounds the opposite of what happened in SoCal.
    AT&T was kinda trashy from its TDMA days, and was worse initially on GSM 1900, as GSM 850 didn't exist on handsets/base stations initially....

    Pretty much. There are probably more than 1,000 cell sites in SoCal, and probably about 50-75 have band 71.

    I've forced my phone a few weeks ago to Band 71 in SoCal, and I had 25Mbps and ~20ms. Much of B71 isn't in really use.
