    This is where Verizon definitely excels. They love to put in a DAS in all kinds of areas. Although with their limited spectrum position, they don't have much of a choice.

    Actually this sort of protects customers. Since sprint has so much debt and a much smaller network/subscriber base its future is in question. If sprint folds what do you think happens. AT&T,...

    LTE Band 14

    Also in reality we are talking about a very small number of users. I have looked at quite a few different reports and there are a ton of factors like backhaul, spectrum, number of active vs idle...

    Thatís not how itís set up. First off to my knowledge there are NO band 14 only sites. They all have other AT&T spectrum on them. AT&T network is set up so you connect to band 14 as a last resort...
  6. Will AT&T Coverage Leapfrog Over Verizon In 2019?

    Bars are kinda meaningless. Although it is very location specific AT&T has made great strides to catch up to Verizonís LTE coverage. AT&T has definitely been focusing on expanding coverage and...

    Correct. Any AT&T user can connect to band 14 but they DO NOT get priority. Only FirstNet users get priority.

    I think the main reason they are considered rural is because they are available virtually everywhere vs wired tv in which every market has different options.

    Most of those people who fight the new towers are all urban/suburbs. The majority of rural areas want those towers to be build but unfortunately they aren't as profitable so carriers don't want to do...

    Dish's whole net worth is only about 18 Billion. After they make a 6 Billion acquisition I doubt they will have much money left to actually work on the network. The only way to me that the sale...

    That’s no big surprise. With the FirstNet contract they have been climbing towers like crazy throwing tons of spectrum up on each tower. What I’m more curious to see is the change in LTE footprint....

    I also wonder if AT&T is afraid to ďCrank upĒ the power of some of its lower RF bands. Even in areas where Verizon and AT&T are co-located on the same site AT&T will still drop to 4G or loose service...

    As nice as that would be for carriers to get the unused Dish spectrum I donít ever see a dish/directv merger. I canít see the DOJ or FCC approving a merger that would bring the number of operators to...

    I was just on the boardwalk at Rehoboth wed through Friday. I as hitting 262, 184, 121, 202. AT&T was very strong. I actually was staying in Dewey beach and for all 3 days speeds hovered...

    This may sound dumb but I noticed both tests used different servers. If you use the same server for both tests are the speeds a little more comparable?

    I agree. This is why I believe that AT&T and Verizon have very fundamentally different approaches. In my area AT&T doesn’t seem to use many small cells. They love to load up the macro sites with all...

    AT&T Is focusing on areas with no coverage first but That part does take time cause they need approval/permits to build the new sites first. The COO for AT&T made it very clear recently that...

    What do you mean by spotty. Are you talking about congestion or coverage. I canít really think of anywhere near downtown Pittsburgh that I actually lost coverage. Verizon also has a good bit of small...

    This is probably the biggest thing I miss from leaving Verizon. Their indoor coverage can’t be beat. Verizon loves to DAS systems in larger buildings like hospitals. I know every area is different...

    It seems like AT&T isnít messing around when they are upgrading a site. In my market it looks like when they upgrade a site they throw all the spectrum they have on it and upgrade the backhaul. They...
