    2G is still on PCS everywhere it was deployed. LTE and UMTS don't use the whole spectrum allocated to them. LTE uses 4.5 MHz, UMTS uses 3.8 MHz. The rest can be used for GSM although it will suffer...

    The author totally misunderstands what backward compatibility means. They got it backwards (pun intended). I'll just leave here what Ericsson engineers wrote:

    July 2020 is the end of repack. Just a year after merger approval. In the context of using B26 it's nothing. I don't believe T-Mobile low band antennas support 800-900 MHz range. I heard T-Mobile is...

    That's an old outdated map. T-Mobile relocated half of the stations. Only 13 stations are remaining. Chicago station should relocate in a few months as it sold its license in the 600 MHz auction....

    Close but not exactly correct. LTE-M is a software upgrade. NB IoT requires RRUs designed with NB IoT in mind. Basestation software can be software upgraded. The initial 3GPP release doesn't matter....

    Try understanding what 5G NR and 5G NB IoT are first before you tell others what to read. You are confusing them. T-Mobile doesn't need Sprint to launch IoT network.

    I read up on it and I'm not convinced. Self driving cars need to be autonomous and not depend on the grid in my opinion. Musk doesn't even want to put lidar in Teslas let alone vague 5G. VR ecosystem...

    Dish took the FCC to the court and it appears they are winning.

    I like this part: Interestingly, Dish said that it has attempted to meet with FCC officials about the issue, but hasn’t been able....

    AWS-3 is far out. The closest deadline is 03/07/2020 for all 20+20 MHz AWS-4 licenses after it was accellerated:

    By Q-Acceptance of the 176 Notification (NT) applications that it filed on March 7,...

    Waste of money in my opinion. We should wait and see how OneWeb and SpaceX constellations pans out before spending billions of taxpayer money.

    That's mostly right except rain is not a problem because cell radius is short. Outside coverage will lower utilization of other bands so it will help. What do you expect from nationwide "5G" network...

    I don't believe it supports yet. But 3GPP iterates quickly. In a half a year they will release the first version of NR that does not depend on LTE core network for everything. But even that version...

    They should work with the official mobile internet plans. T-Mobile doesn't like if "wrong" device is used on a phone or tablet plan. They check IMEI/TAC codes of devices on all lines periodically.

    They don't but they and AT&T are pushing the FCC for a mmwave auction in late 18 - early 19.


    EDIT: they have small amount but I wouldn't call it decent.

    I won't bother with 5G until I see meaningful mmwave deployment and see how it performs in real life. 5G in low and mid-band is meh. Not worth an early upgrade. I'd rather upgrade to S9 to get B71.

    I'm not, you are. You brought up this claim in the context of 600 MHz and 2020:




    I corrected you. Now you are backtracking and talking about millimeter wave and a decade timeframe.

    That's not what you wrote in the other comment. You wrote "5G is about 10 times faster than 4G LTE-A." Such a blanket statement is misleading that's I corrected it.

    That's only where mmwave is deployed. The increase will come mostly from huge amount of new spectrum not the air interface improvements. Tthe difference between 4G LTE and 5G NR in 600 MHz won't be...

    That's awkward wording. Most US phones have antennas that perform well in 700..900 MHz range (from B12 lower boundary to B5 upper boundary). They don't just stop working immediately below 700 and...

    That's because these devices didn't pass VoLTE and VoWiFi certification. It's up to device manufacturer to do that. AT&T network doesn't really need VoLTE and VoWiFi. They are nice to have but not...

    Probably:


    Low band antennas have to support wider range of frequencies 600..900 vs current 700..900 MHz. Not only AT&T will have to replace antennas but it's always harder to design antennas...
