    It's pretty obvious that they're testing a lot of areas that aren't even in the coverage area.



    Before this month, AT&T had zero meaningful 5G. Their n5 is a joke, just like T-Mobile's n71.

    It actually could be between 7 and 10 depending on how you count. I should probably revise my count to 10 now that I actually list them all out. I hadn't counted EDGE and mmWave 5G before. However,...
  3. That's actually a good point, but I think the...

    That's actually a good point, but I think the biggest cost argument for Verizon is that they are deploying and have to deploy tens or hundreds of thousands of small cells anyway. The cost to upgrade...

    No. In order to match AT&T and Verizon, they have to do four things:

    1. Integrate two carriers operating 8 networks into one carrier operating 2 networks. That's a massive undertaking alone.
    2....

    Tower height is done at the state, maybe local level. Frequencies depend on what licenses the carrier owns. I think what locoheeler is saying is that as carriers add capacity, they rely more on...

    They are using 700 or 600 in most markets today, and they need to add a lot more towers to get to the point that AT&T and Verizon are at with rural coverage. They may eventually do that, but they've...

    Interesting. I always understood CDMA roaming to be all/nothing, while it could be done tower by tower for GSM. I guess you're looking at it for in-market roaming as well, which GSM carriers...

    True, to an extent. The duopoly in wireless tends to do monkey-see, monkey-do, but at least it's better than a monopoly like in wired internet.



    They're not testing the areas that Verizon...
  9. How so? Isn't CDMA far less granular than LTE/GSM?

    How so? Isn't CDMA far less granular than LTE/GSM?
  10. It's 6% because most of the network hasn't been...

    It's 6% because most of the network hasn't been upgraded to mmWave 5G yet. Give it some time. Building what Verizon is building is something that doesn't happen overnight.



    They're just getting...

    They may have filled a few sites in here and there, but they definitely haven't fixed the whole thing. I know of a location that's a big hole that they never bothered to fill in. That one will get...
  12. They have more mmWave than anyone else. Sure,...

    They have more mmWave than anyone else. Sure, Sprint has their 2.5, which is arguably the best balance of speed and coverage, but the rest of their network is a disaster. You are acting like 5G...

    5/12/14 and 12/71 in most cases. So they have almost exactly the same range, T-Mobile just has fewer towers to cover the area, so they have less coverage. With more towers, AT&T also gets more out of...
  14. Who cares? They will do sub-6 5G eventually...

    Who cares? They will do sub-6 5G eventually that's basically the same speed as 4G like T-Mobile's, but they will have WAY more mmWave. Meanwhile, AT&T's fake 5G network crushes T-Mobile's 5G network...
  15. Verizon doesn't even have close to 6% of their...

    Verizon doesn't even have close to 6% of their small cells running 5G in the first place! When they upgrade massive numbers of small cells to 5G, they will have a LOT of mmWave coverage, at least by...

    There are numerous reports in this thread:

    https://www.howardforums.com/showthread.php/1867580-Northern-MI-T-Mobile-buildout-has-begun!

    Apparently T-Mobile decided to space the towers FARTHER...

    I disagree on a few points. While it is faster than building their own sites, not all sites have the physical capability to have additional carriers added, or have to be totally rebuilt to do so....
  18. All the carriers crayon in their maps, but it...

    All the carriers crayon in their maps, but it seems that T-Mobile is now the worst offender of the bunch. They also, as you say, have a lot of places where they haven't deployed all their spectrum.
  19. Verizon in particular is going to do very well...

    Verizon in particular is going to do very well with mmWave. They are covering most urban and dense suburban areas entirely with small cells. Large sections of Boston, Chicago, and a number of other...

    So what is 1.9M net adds? Doing terrible? They can't be both unable to compete and doing a great job competing at the same time. It has to be one way or the other, and by all objective measures, I...

    Not a fabrication, you have argued it over and over. You just change your story or lie about it when someone calls you out.



    There are basic principles of economics which you either don't...

    I hope that you're right, but I really don't think so at this point. That being said, it's been one of the weirdest merger sagas I've ever seen, so looking back at the last couple of years would...

    That's a pretty good summary of it. T-Sprint will surely expand rural coverage to some extent. However, it will also take them at least a decade to catch up to AT&T and Verizon, if they ever do....

    That's an asinine argument. Even if the government couldn't force them to continue operating, if they couldn't sell out to anyone else, then they'd be forced to figure it out one way or another....

    Yeah, all valid points, I was just thinking of the technical sides of things but moving people from Sprint to T-Mobile billing could impact the transition from one network to another and is tied...
