    Never heard cell breathing described that way; generally it's a negative, you get max range on an uncongested site and range reduces as the congestion increases (the site range breaths in or out...

    *shrug* Here in Iowa, Verizon Wireless' rural LTE coverage is largely band 13 only (11x11mhz channel -- no idea why the FCC licensed 22mhz instead of 20 :rolleyes: ). In town (Iowa City) I've seen...

    Possibly. One risk to that i could think of, a lot of state PUCs (Public Utility Commissions) are essentially administrative, they make sure the dues are paid and paperwork is in order. A few...

    Agreed. Quite a few Android vendors were essentially making T-Mo-specific, AT&T-specific, Verizon-specific, and Sprint-specific models (if they made it for all 4), and sometimes US Cellular-specific...

    Not CDMA; LTE has narrow 1.4 and 3mhz options (mostly meant to be more of a drop-in replacement in case some cell co running CDMA/EVDO's 1.25mhz channels and no fresh spectrum didn't have to turn off...

    I wonder if areas where 4G coverage is lacking, if it'd make sense to run one 1.4mhz or 3mhz channel, maybe on the 850, just for maximum coverage? Would this help signal margins or run at a bit...

    Yes, the old Verizon SIMs were strictly for GSM roaming. The one I had, although it had a Verizon logo on it it was actually a Vodafone NL SIM (I suppose Verizon had no GSM-compatible billing system...

    Maybe offered in error? (Higher speeds nearby but the house is a low spot.). Maybe the hotspot will have a larger antenna and pull in bands the iphone is out of range of there.

    Actually from what I gather it's not throttled to 50mbps, they're simply offering it only in areas where site load is low enough that they expect users to be able to get at least 50mbps. A good idea...

    I don't know if it's fair to say T-Mo is "way" behind. AT&T and VZW have not had 5G out for that long, and the devices at this point are not yet mature (something odd like the current Galaxy S10 5g...

    I must admit once or twice here the 4G got very congested and the 3G was a bit faster, when there's been home football games.

    Followup on that, on the T-Mo site now you can see the extra coverage from band 71 here in eastern Iowa, and can see exactly how far out the protection for KGCW and KLJB extends; Iowa City shows no...

    They have had just different variants of unlimited plans for a while now; this is a fairly old grandfathered plan, and VZW (like T-Mo) tends to let people grandfather plans indefinitely.

    It's not false to claim this service is 5G; it sure is, since it is running 5Gnr. Bragging about some kind of "5G speed" might be pushing it but just claiming they have 5G isn't.
