    Yeah really, I don't know why both MNS and 4EON aren't just built into the plans as the default behavior. It seems like that should be the default behavior of all wireless services.



    Correct....

    I disagree. In some ways, it was unnatural, as there were two CLR blocks in every market. OK. However, in many ways, it's a natural duopoly, as it is too capital intensive to have 3 or 4 carriers...

    If you actually bother to do the math out, it's a brilliant way to get customers. Look at the customer acquisition costs to pay off phones or offer other deals to get new customers versus just...

    I got to try out Sprint in NYC the other day. I'm still rather underwhelmed. While my phone stayed on B41 most of the time, due to the highly densified network in NYC, and it beat my AT&T phone on...

    I believe Manual Network Selection is a different feature from 4EON entirely.

    Today I called AT&T, and what a nightmare. The CSR I talked to clearly didn't know what 4EON even is, and then ended...

    This is true. In theory, competition will drive margins to be very small, or product differentiation between companies, but there is a natural duopoly in the wireless market.

    Yeah, that would be fair, except for the fact that it would kill ARPUs, and as we know, US-based carriers LOVE to make a ton of money, and the costs in the US to run a cell network are quite high.

    I don't know what they are using these days, but it used to work fine on EDGE at 32kbps I believe. Most services start between 64kbps and 96kbps. Spotify is a bandwidth pig, it will crank up to...

    1. Apps that will run on a 5s will run on a X, but an iPhone X is not needed to do something as simple and low-bandwidth as monitor an insulin pump. Whoever told you it won't run on an S9 or iPhone X...

    Yeah, it was fine for mobile use. At home, of course I want 4k, surround sound, all that fun stuff.

    No. In Ottawa, I got decent speeds on Rogers B7 LTE. Nothing spectacular, but double-digit mbps. No VoLTE, but 3G voice worked fine. Service there was equal to or better than Verizon or AT&T...

    I actually disagree. I think they will use fiber to cherry pick a few places here and there that will get FiOS when/where it is cheap to do so. NG-PON2 will allow them to do fiber for FiOS, 5G, and...

    Yeah, I rarely, if ever use public or hotel Wi-Fi. Too sketchy in many cases. I did stream video on EDGE though, it only ever worked on my Nokia E71, so something that phone did with it's YouTube...

    Ah ok, that's what I figured would happen. FaceTime is weird though. That seems like a mistake more than anything else.

    That does kind of suck about the tiered plans, is there is no easy way to put limits on each line, or have it as a per-line throttle, which would be...

    Haha. Somewhere between $2/GB and $5/GB would make them more competitive in the US though. Either that, or a lower flat monthly fee.

    Starry already has service running. I think Verizon is going to prove you wrong at scale on that one though. They have the infrastructure to do 5G home internet in urban areas.

    There is definitely more spec overlap than I first thought. The G6 Play however, still feels like a nicer, faster device. The e5 Plus does have the insane battery life. Motorola has some branding...

    Increasing capacity makes sense. I'm very skeptical of the IoT stuff, as I'm sure it will run fine on 5G, but I don't think it will actually do anything differently than it does today on 2G and 3G...

    One cent for 5MB would be $2/GB, but yes, their pricing is high for domestic data. The concept of PPU makes sense though.

    1. You really don't need video on a smartphone in the first place. It's being pushed in order to generate a perceived need that doesn't really exist in order to drive up ARPU. Of course, that's how a...
