    New England has no 5G low band coverage, NY outside of a small lower section around NYC also. Is it that they haven't gotten around to it yet in those areas or is there no band 5 there at all?

    I know they have said in some markets they will not be able to use band 5 instead using other mid band spectrum. When that is rolled out is another question.
