    I would like to see some band 41 used for LTE and some mid-band (~2GHz) shifted over to 5G. This would provide an additional layer of 5G service.

    It's about profit. It doesn't pay to deliver service to the last 2% (or even the last 10%). Delivering 5G to the 50% pays for everything else.

    There are times when renting and leasing are appropriate: to cover a short-term need is one. If I need to move a piano, I'll rent the truck and dolly to do the job. Another time it's appropriate is...

    Everyone needs to understand that this is a discussion of FCC Form 477 filings, which the carriers certify as being correct. Not the maps they show their customers.

    AFAIK, the base model G7 does not have T-Mobile's band 71. The G7 Power and Play models do.

    Since the subject is "5G Coverage Maps", I think it would be interesting to see a 5G coverage map with colors representing the theoretical maximum 5G download speed, given factors such as bandwidth,...

    Coverage will be the same.

    One thing everyone should remember is that, in many areas, T-Mobile has not fully deployed their existing mid-band licenses. In some areas they may be running 2G, 3G &...

    No, it's real 5G. Just many folks have a fake idea of what "5G" means.

    It all depends on what you mean by "protect". In an extreme sense this could imply microwave and satellite backups, etc. In another sense it could just mean taking care that your backhaul will...

    Turnover at the local T-Mobile store seems to be very high. No one seems to make it a career. They could easily ease Sprint's sales people into T-Mobile stores over a couple of years and still close...

    Generators only help if you've similarly protected your backhaul. Since T-Mobile is well known for saving money by going with budget backhaul, generators at cell sites might not do a lot of good.

    You have to keep in mind the huge signal losses in normal coax at frequencies around 2 GHz. With the small diameter stuff (e.g. RG174) more than 10 feet and you've given up most of the gain from the...

    Prepaid may, or may not, work overseas. It's one of the most problematic of T-Mobile's features. Yes, their website lists prices (outrageous) for calls and texts but they often don't work where they...

    I know. I sometimes go to the Len Foote Hike Inn near the southern end of the Appalachian Trail. There is one spot where I can get a couple bars of band-12 signal. Needless to say, I'm not watching...

    First, band 12 and 71 aggregate with mid-bands. A phone can use mid-band for download and low-band for upload. So, it is possible that the whole is greater than the sum of the parts.

    Yeah, well, not if the past is any guide. Probably 5x5 LTE and 15x15 5G. But that's just based on the fact that AFAIK no one has seen band 71 deployed as anything but 5x5 LTE, so far.

    Also, is...

    It depends on the persona he needs to affect to carry out his new role. I tend to believe that he's been enjoying the leather-jacketed, trash-talking, bad-boy shtick and will continue it if possible.

    I've sworn off getting embroiled in debates about what T-Mobile might do in the future. I thought they'd deploy as much band 71 for LTE as possible while awaiting 5G. Wrong! I thought they'd always...
