    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....

    Fedora isn't bad. Neither is Oracle Enterprise Linux. I personally prefer to keep the Linux distros as simple as possible.

    Ok - that's a little different. My response was to the initial 'I would say yes, band 71 in all of Wisconsin and UP Michigan.' I do suspect that service is different west of McMillan / Sault Ste....

    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.
    In my area, there are 3 sites, about 5 miles apart from each other, only one that is...

    I don't have that issue much in SoCal... but I do get that issue in more rural areas in CA and other states as well.

    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.

    Many Verizon customers are Verizon customers because they provide service where their customers need it... Or feel they need it. TMobile's rural coverage in many places is still lacking.
