    Don't count your chickens.... I've seen T-Mobile do some pretty bone-headed things over the years.

    My suggestion would be that if T-Mobile does not offer them something they like, the iPhone 5s (once unlocked) would work fine on Consumer Cellular.

    I don't think that's what @shortyd999 meant by "coverage".

    I think the PRK is too important a market to just forego. It's like with the insurance companies. If Alabama or Mississippi make it hard to do business, they just say, "To bad, we won't write...

    What @jakeuten says. And I don't have any special insider information into the inner workings of T-Mobile. I've just watched them for many years. Their first priority is going to be dealing with...

    Considering the results of the AWS-3 auction, I find it hard to believe that anyone "wasn't aggressive enough".

    Keep in mind that T-Mobile sold many phones with LTE band-2 that lacked band-25. Combining the G block with the C block makes the combination band-25 and unavailable to the owners of those T-Mobile...

    Depends on who you talk to. For the mobile phone customer, I probably agree with you.


    Like it would be any more believable than current maps?

    I wouldn't hold my breath. T-Mobile has a lot of fish to fry before they start adding greenfield coverage. Merging the two networks, decommissioning redundant Sprint sites, adding 700 MHz to existing...

    Not necessarily. T-Mobile can use Sprint's existing infrastructure, altho I'm not sure that's what they plan to do. T-Mobile's existing base stations can host Sprint's band-25 spectrum at the flip...

    Well, I hope so. To date, the only officialish rumors re band-41 are about 5G. Not that it matters so much to me, out here in the sticks. It just seems like band-41 LTE would be necessary to support...

    I still look for a network sharing/hosting arrangement. I see a lot of efficiencies in not having to support dual infrastructures.

    The only dumb question is the one left unasked. No. DISH is taking Band-26. They own some band-71, which they will keep. T-Mobile has a sizable chunk of band-71, nationwide.

    Probably a good idea to keep him on retainer so he doesn't bolt to yet another carrier.

    Hopefully, they will allocate at least some (e.g. 20 MHz) of band-41 to LTE to relieve the immediate problem of congestion on some urban cells.

    Whoop-te-doodilly-do. Maybe now some of these never-ending pro-anti merger threads can finally die and we can move on to discussing the mechanics of how it will happen.

    Unfortunately I lost my chart showing the alignment of TV channels and band-71 blocks in a disk crash. I've been trying to locate another copy but Google has not been very forthcoming.

    FCC's response to carrier's requests. The issue is that if band-71's down and up links were in the normal arrangement (down higher than up) they would have had to leave a significant guard band...

    This is where USCC has 850 MHz licenses in California. They have other low-band (600 & 700) licensed down to just north of Chico.

    The issue is that band 71's uplink and downlink are reversed relative to all other US bands. This puts band-71's uplink directly adjacent band-12's uplink. Since uplink is the weak link in the chain,...
