    This.

    Honestly I think another major factor here is deprioritization -- it gives a hell of a lot of breathing room in network planning.

    Without deprio, you get too many heavy data users on...

    I'd love 5mbps unlimited to. I do travel to areas with US Cellular roaming and such though, so... oh well.

    There was talk a few years ago about carriers considering pay-for-speed like 1mbps,...

    Well, from what I've seen deprioritization locally now and then, so I can quantify this a little bit. VZW says to expect typical 4G speeds of 5-12mbps. I've found when speeds on an un-deprioed line...

    Well, personally we were looking at moving our lines to another carrier before they at least offered the safety mode. I had been on a grandfathered unlimited plan, usage was like 1-2GB most months...

    That's amazing. What a lot of fiber. Here's hoping (if the 5G itself isn't priced to shake up the market) Verizon lays this fiber all over the place and 3rd party ISPs take advantage of it to shake...

    Well, personally, I would wait too -- 5G phones soon will support several more bands, for broader 5G coverage; also, the current phones use 5G for downloads only, with all uploads going over 4G. ...

    In my area, cellmapper really does not have enough info to draw conclusions; I mean, it actually appears to show much more LTE coverage than 1X (not saying there is, I'm saying that's what the map...

    Well, my parents (my dad *INSISTS* they need a landline...) went from a Verizon Home Phone Connect (per Google, a Huawei F256VW) to a "4G LTE Broadband Router with Voice" (T1114). Current version is...

    From TFA, the plan is for 600mhz deployment for fixed wireless, replacing their current deployment of fixed wireless services via their existing LTE network. On the one hand, running 5G on that...

    I've only got 5mbps up on my landline (with a real speed closer to 4mbps) :rolleyes: . The local cable and DSL company really act as a duopoly; the DSL provider here has 40mbps down/5mbps up service...

    You "can" upgrade one line to BeyondUnlimited, but they way the price is structured, it's like $85 for one line, and drops down to $50 for four. (You can apparently mix them, so you can have one $50...

    I would say your service will almost certainly be terminated. From what I've gathered, beyond end of year 2019, they will be running (probably) 1 channel of CDMA until sometime in 2022 to fullfill a...

    Odd but not inconceivable; LTE does support turning off use of "noisy" resource blocks, so they could conceivably run a 10x10 block and have it simply never assign the overlap so it's really like a...

    Well, they do have what were back in the day called "PCS-only" markets, like Madison, a good chunk of Florida, and so on -- mostly ex-PrimeCo markets. But the sites were already spaced for PCS (even...

    For now, there are still areas where VZW roams 1x only on US Cellular even though both 3g and 4g are available; in those cases the answer is of course "no." In the more usual case of 4G LTE roaming...

    It might... the 5G is supposed to get about 200mbps per 10mhz of spectrum. Keep in mind the cell site is sectorized, so 200mbps for each 90 degree wedge basically. Very often in these areas, you'll...
