    I don't know if T-Mo's going to need band 12 that badly here to be competitive here; VZW has good speeds in town (where they're running band 4, 2, 13, and 5) but out of town a lot of sites are band...

    Yeah I doubt t-mo even bid on band 12, since they had no service statewide when the auction took place.

    Eastern Iowa coverage?

    I'm curious if there's anyone on here who has T-Mobile, that signed up to it when it was IWireless (they got bought out last year.) For background, IWireless ran a mixture of HSPA, LTE (but no...

    I hear that. I enjoy discussions over what a carrier "could" do (i.e. they deploy all their spectrum everywhere), and what they may do in the future. But predictions? It's tricky; VZW at least...

    If they did a prl update while roaming, it probably loaded one on for us cellular or verizon, whoever he was roaming on. Prl updates must be done in native coverage. Probably just being in the...

    Never heard cell breathing described that way; generally it's a negative, you get max range on an uncongested site and range reduces as the congestion increases (the site range breaths in or out...

    *shrug* Here in Iowa, Verizon Wireless' rural LTE coverage is largely band 13 only (11x11mhz channel -- no idea why the FCC licensed 22mhz instead of 20 :rolleyes: ). In town (Iowa City) I've seen...

    Possibly. One risk to that i could think of, a lot of state PUCs (Public Utility Commissions) are essentially administrative, they make sure the dues are paid and paperwork is in order. A few...

    Agreed. Quite a few Android vendors were essentially making T-Mo-specific, AT&T-specific, Verizon-specific, and Sprint-specific models (if they made it for all 4), and sometimes US Cellular-specific...

    I wonder if areas where 4G coverage is lacking, if it'd make sense to run one 1.4mhz or 3mhz channel, maybe on the 850, just for maximum coverage? Would this help signal margins or run at a bit...

    Actually from what I gather it's not throttled to 50mbps, they're simply offering it only in areas where site load is low enough that they expect users to be able to get at least 50mbps. A good idea...

    I don't know if it's fair to say T-Mo is "way" behind. AT&T and VZW have not had 5G out for that long, and the devices at this point are not yet mature (something odd like the current Galaxy S10 5g...

    I must admit once or twice here the 4G got very congested and the 3G was a bit faster, when there's been home football games.

    They have had just different variants of unlimited plans for a while now; this is a fairly old grandfathered plan, and VZW (like T-Mo) tends to let people grandfather plans indefinitely.
