    I've always been a bit shocked that MLB TV (when not free) is like $120 a seaon, and for someone paying that kind of money they still apply the regional blackouts...

    Not really, I'm with shortyd999, it'd be much better if they throttled to 128kbps at 2GB, and provided the option to buy more high-speed data if you want, than to shut it off at 2GB. Honestly...

    It's there. My friend has gone through data like a crazy person installing slots and pinball games on Steam, his line is already at 24GB data like 10 days into the billing cycle; the site (at least...

    When VZW rolled out LTE, it was all band 13. ...

    When VZW rolled out LTE, it was all band 13. Using band 4 second was an easy decision, they were not using band 4 for anything. CDMA/EVDO was on band 5 and 2, in areas where they have both they...

    Agreed 100%. -97dbm at 2 miles to me suggests you're on band 4. Band 66 would get a nice speed boost then (access to a second AWS block instead of just one). Having band 71 to reach that 5 mile...

    Important thing to note here, cat 6 adds carrier aggregation and 4x4MIMO, cat 4 has no carrier aggregation. This is on VZW, but my parents have a home hotspot that's cat 4 (and only band 4 and...

    That's good to know; the info I read about them not using it was very old. It does seem like it'd be very handy for fine tuning network performance.

    But, 1, 2, 5, 6, all have planned shutdown dates within the next year or two (7's time is probably numbered too but don't know for sure.). 5 years ago, I would have considered a merger like this...

    Well, I don't see haters showing up in T-Mo forum to criticize T-Mo. But, I do think it's probably true (in AT&T, VZW forum for example) that a lot of people probably assume T-Mo coverage is as it...

    Band 13 (on VZW) is like that. It's better to have something than nothing, that's for sure; but it's a big difference to drop from generally 10-30mbps off band 4, 2, etc. to getting like 1-5mbps off...

    To add to this.. historically, CDMA was used internationally in Canada and Mexico, some south american countries, S. Korea made a lot of usage of CDMA, and I think some in India. As far as I know,...

    True; US Cellular is not even that small, and as recently as a year or two ago was talking about leaving CDMA up indefinitely, and kind of deploying LTE at their own pace. In isolation (i.e. not...

    This really doesn't accurately characterize what VZW is doing; they are not dropping rural customers in moving from CDMA to LTE. They are dropping some amount of customers who have been permanently...

    1) Why rock the boat? It's exactly the kind of thing that's good PR for T-Mo to keep and bad...

    Depends on how it's tuned. If it waits for band 66/2 to drop off THEN switches to 12/71, then yeah it'd be like you say. But I bet that's not what's really happening!

    I'm on VZW, but my phone...

    In the past, T-Mo and Sprint have really been the lower cost two carriers. AT&T and VZW really have tried as much as possible to studiously ignore them; they do not wish to lower their prices to...

    Are you sure? I mean, both LTE and 5g NR are ultimately using 180khz wide resource blocks; so I'm not sure why there'd be a significant difference in relative efficiency between LTE and 5G NR based...

    T-Mo is in a very strong spectrum position here; the 600 is not a lot, but gives nice coverage. T-Mo's getting like 150mhz average of 2500mhz nationwide from this Sprint purchase, reportedly Sprint...

    Honestly, I personally don't care how I get my service, I care about the result. CenturyLink (local DSL provider) currently has fiber optics to their DSLAMs, providing potentially plenty of speed;...

    I've heard they are not expanding FIOS, but they are expanding fiber; basically, in non-competitive areas like mine (DSL provider and cable co. are pricey, they act like a cozy duopoly rather than...

    I'm for some caps in C-Band; remember, there isn't just VZW, T-Mo, and AT&T, and nothing else. In my area, US Cellular would probably want a crack at some C-Band; there are wireless ISPs around that...

    The trouble they ran into with the analog shutdown (2008), they had analog-only onstar units in cars up to 2005; the digital upgrade ($15 for a 1X onstar module) was only available for 2002-2005...

    Yeah I'd be happy with an S20; the 5mhz or so of n71 is... well, whatever, it does extend coverage; but the n41 will be sick, they're getting (nationwide average) 150mhz of n41. That's what makes me...
