    An LTE phone can use either band-12 or band-71 but not both at the same time. When both are available, the only real advantage to band-71 is that it's usually less congested, hence faster. As far as...

    J.L. was the right leader to pick T-Mobile up off the pavement, to take on a broken industry and bring the company from dead last to a solid 3rd. He may not be the right leader to carry the company...

    I don't really disagree with the points you've made but would like to mention that T-Mobile plans to release a lot of Sprint's infrastructure (tower leases, shacks, antennas, etc), where they will be...

    Sprint's insane debt is an issue that T-Mobile didn't face, plus T-Mobile got $3B and a roaming agreement from AT&T. Added to this, the mobile industry in 2011 was hopelessly broken and inefficient....

    Both Dayton and Palm Beach have band 12, so band 71 is not a mandatory requirement. You might want to run a test of T-Mobile using a MVNO like Metro for a month to see how you like the coverage.

    Dish was the only company with a spectrum position to be able to carry it off. Until Star Trek's sub-space frequencies become available, they were the only choice.

    If you live in an area that has band-12 (700 MHz) service, band-71 is a nice-to-have feature. In areas where T-Mobile doesn't have a band-12 license, it's much more important. In some areas they've...

    I can appreciate nightmares from a distance. Homeostasis is just fine by me.

    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...
