    Carrier Aggregation also plays a factor on how your signal looks on your phone.

    For instance where I live I either have 1 bar of LTE or 4 Bars of LTE. My phone will hang on to one bar of band 4...

    I did some more testing today and went all around Pittsburgh and the results stayed the same. I spent about 80% on “band 66”, the rest was a few spots of band 2 and some band 13. So the must have...

    Yeah. I’m not disagreeing that it’s not fast enough. I just thought it was odd. The only thing that still shows band 4 is my LTE network extender.

    Although the hardware of the LTE network extender is pretty good it seems that the way the extender is routed on the Verizon network is very poor.

    Any failures I have had have all been related to...

    Although there are definitely places that do not have LTE coverage I think a majority of the time that your device switches to 3g it does it because it can, not because it has to.

    That Easter Egg is very cool.

    As far as accuracy one thing I noticed is that itís very inconsistent depending on how you run the test. For instance on my Mac if I run a wired speed test I get...

    I just checked my error logs and it shows a few of those messages as well but the extender reconnects after a minute or so.

    I still also leave my Wi-Fi for all my data but I figured the ping/latency would directly impact the call quality.

    Iím pretty sure Verizon doesnít own any spectrum in the Pittsburg area ďAllegheny County PAĒ. I think dish owns a big chunk of that spectrum in this area.

    My ping is still Around 90. I still have No clue why itís so high. Hardwired I get around 6ms on Comcast so I know itís not the connection. Iím guessing itís how Verizon routes the extender onto...

    I just tested mine cause I was curious as well. I do use WiFi for the data and the extender for calls. I can definitely tell a difference in call quality between the extender and WiFi calling.

    My ISP is Comcast (gig download and 40 upload) and hardwired my ping is 6-8 so I was assuming my ping with the extender should be in the 40ís but it has always been in the 80ís. I will say the call...

    For the most part I world agree with you regarding the need for the exception of capacity. You can keep a lot more things going with a gig plan then a standard plan. 4K sreaming eats up that capacity...

    I use cell mapper to compare coverage areas. Its very accurate because its real world users. The speeds can be skewed because the person running the speedtest may have an older device.
