    For the same reason that the lower 700 MHz licenses were issued in 6x6 MHz blocks: It was the existing TV channelization in 6 MHz per channel. When 600 MHz was licensed, the LTE pattern of 5 MHz...

    Much of JL's compensation is in stock options. Just look at T-Mobile's share prices from 2012 (~$10) to today (~$80) and you can see why he might want to say, "My job here is done" and move on.

    For some reason, which I don't understand, they seem to be "saving" the rest for 5G. The reason I don't understand is that their base stations are supposed to be able to be reconfigured remotely. So...

    In the grand scheme of things, just about all of NJ qualifies as "large urban area". Yes, I know that there are rural areas but NJ has the highest population density of all the states.

    They seem to have a priority scheme:
    1. Large urban areas
    2. Places where they don't have a band-12 license
    3. Everywhere else.

    Within each of these there are other priorities. Like:

    What happened is that the FCC neglected to "perfect the lien" by publishing it in the Federal Register. Without a valid lien, the FCC lacked legal basis for repossessing the licenses.

    Due to what ammounted to a bone-headed clerical mistake made by the FCC and not repeated.

    This is pretty much a throw-away offer. Keep in mind that T-Mobile inherits Sprint's contractual requirement to offer unlimited, unthrottled wireless ISP to non-profits and low-income for $10/mo by...

    Looking on CellMapper, it appears that they have a couple of sites up and running in the general area, out to the west.

    Simple. The companies have different "visions" for what 5G will become and are implementing those visions. Apples and oranges. Different races. Someone who's a second behind at the start of a sprint...

    I agree that most Uncarrier moves have been items that could be implemented in the billing system (e.g. Binge On) or website (T-Mobile Tuesday). However, I really would notice Sprint roaming since...

    "Way behind"??? I'd say "Weeks behind" and that's just because they don't care to make any monumental 5G screw-ups like Verizon did with their 5G roll-out belly-flop.

    CellMapper makes plenty of mistakes. Keep in mind that T-Mobile could be transmitting a band-25 MFBI on their band-2 sites.

    From a technical standpoint, I tend to agree with this. A 5x5 LTE carrier plus a 10x10 5G NR carrier is scant gain (if any) over a 15x15 LTE carrier. But this isn't about what makes the best...

    T-Mobile has been somewhat of a niche player until now, with relatively few retail stores and a fairly slim business sales department. A while back I counted the T-Mobile corp stores in Mississippi....

    This doesn't make sense in relation to CWA (Communications Workers of America) but it might IRT CCA (Competitive Carriers Association). The CWA doesn't like the merger because T-Mobile is a...

    Project Fi doesn't qualify as a carrier, they're a MVNO that employs multiple carriers. They best way to improve your signal in your home office is to use WiFi.

    And this is the reason why T-Mobile must continue to expand their rural coverage. They won't get corporate customers without it.

    Probably something new and fantastic that will, OBTW, undo anything of benefit to the customer from the previous Uncarrier moves. Just wait. Smoke, mirrors, flashing lights, worse for the customer in...

    Well, in reality it will be mostly LTE. In most places customers will get a thin band-71 5G service augmented with a lot of LTE on various bands. The phone will show "5G" but most of the data will...

    The speed increase between 15x15 or 20x20 LTE and having, say 5x5 LTE plus 10x10 or 15x15 5G is not all that much. It's kind of like having 5G just for the sake of having the phone show "5G" in the...

    I used to use a tiny little Ericsson phone that had a clip-on keyboard, but I get your point. The only small phones with LTE band 13 and a QWERTY keyboard that I can find are older discontinued...
