    Yep, Charter was never part of the CableCo consortium (although they do hold a few wireless licenses in parts of the country), but they will be part of the agreement via Brighthouse and Time Warner....

    Nope, they have a good deal from when the cable co's sold AWS to VZ, so they can activate their MVNO deal as Comcast just did.

    Band 12 is a superset of Band 17 and includes blocks A, B and C whereas Band 17 is just B and C. Telus could easily be using MFBI like AT&T in the US to display both Band 12 and Band 17.
