    You could ADD LTE to a drone, but I'm not sure what the purpose of that would be, as I believe FAA regs have some requirements for being relatively near the drone in order to control it anyway. You...

    Hopefully they will do WiFi calling as well. AT&T is just so aggravating with this crap. I've had to buy two AT&T branded phones just for VoLTE/VoWiFi.

    I wasn't saying that particular case wasn't AT&T finally unblocking those devices, but rather that in general as more devices are unblocked, or if they remove the blocks entirely, people shouldn't...

    It depends a lot on the area. Small town cops do, well, not much of anything. City cops run around like crazy dealing with all sorts of problems and end up trying to do 15 things at once. Some of the...

    Make sure that it works for 24 hours. Just about any VoLTE phone will work on VoLTE on AT&T for some period of time (maybe minutes, maybe hours), before the system "catches" it. You'll only know that...

    That all can be done over commercial LTE, or doesn't even use LTE at all (like drones, which are on unlicensed spectrum) without FirstNet. It's not stuff that is going to happen during an emergency,...

    If there's an actual emergency, then they use TRS. Otherwise, they don't need data per se. I doubt that the Big 4 were totally dead, although it's common for big events for carriers not to have...

    I guess you could argue it's not a boondoggle because AT&T is actually building it out, but the whole concept is idiotic. There is no need for a police/fire network, there were commercial networks...

    USCC LTE = Extended
    T-Mobile LTE = Extended
    AT&T LTE = Roaming (throttled to 256kbps)
    Verizon 1xRTT = Roaming (max 144kbps if it works at all)

    The big change is T-Mobile, which provides...

    It would eliminate the oddball spectrum ownership in that market. It's probably more of a benefit to T-Mo than to AT&T.

    The whole idea is that AT&T would give T-Mobile 700 Lower A, and a 5x5 of PCS or AWS in exchange for that oddball cellular block so that T-Mobile could get rid of B5/n5 nationwide, and that might be...

    Correct. In those handful of markets, Verizon would lose a 5x5 of B2 to keep CDMA running. They could also shut it down in B2-only markets since it has no range benefit then over B13 LTE, and the...

    I hate to have to defend Jack Hagar here, but in this case, he's basically right. There is a 1.25x1.25mhz or 2.5x2.5mhz slice of B5 that's left over in an LTE deployment and can't do anything else....

    We were never CDMA-only, AT&T, Cingular, and T-Mobile were on the GSM side. CDMA was the majority with Sprint, Verizon, Alltel, USCC, C-Spire, Cricket, and MetroPCS, but not by a huge margin.

    The 2020 iPhone will have Qualcomm radios. It still depends on the RF design of the phone itself, however, as the iPhone X was lousy even with Qualcomm, versus the 8+ that was pretty good on the...

    Why can't Verizon keep CDMA around? It costs a lot of money to maintain the network, and it limits the selection of phones they can offer, and drives the costs of them up. CDMA is dying, and yes,...

    Doesn't work that way. They could continue to run 1.25x1.25 or 2.5x2.5 depending on the market (CLR A-side versus B-side) without impacting the spectrum available for LTE. They will shut down CDMA...

    That depends on the area. In CT, AT&T churns out more triple-digit speeds than any other carrier AND works in more places. But it still can vary block to block and town to town.

    Yeah, that was about my experience with an AT&T (Bug Tussel), and Sprint (USCC) phone.
