    Very nice. Doing a bunch of narrow beam sectors at high modulation to make sure everyone gets the speeds?

    I've noticed that some of the towers in Jefferson County Missouri are getting new Pannels... POSSIBLY multi-band Pannels. Band 2/4/30 1710-2400 MHz? The one on Hyfield Road possibly has Band 4 Deployed because of PCI 82 being seen when on Band 4 LTE.

    That's a good point, in that poorly engineered DSL with a lack of backhaul isn't guaranteed, but well engineered DSL is, since you'd only be limited by your own line.

    Verizon's GPON is guaranteed to at least 75mbps if you do the math out, since they put up to 32 subs on 2.4gbps. That's pretty good speed wise, even though not the full gig.

    Yeah after 24 hours with fios. I’m not impressed. First off, our download somehow is screwed up (they also drilled a hole through my effing floor—nightmare they said they’d fix) and speeds are ALL over the place. Comcast was slow at 30/5 but it was 100% consistent. My gig fios ranges from on 5ghz is 80mbps to 120 down and 300-500 up (yes I know Wi-Fi won’t ever get the true speeds).

    Oh also, it’s sort of a scam because Verizon’s “Speedtest” says 950/950. Everything else says 80-120. Hmm who to believe?!

    You need to test with hardwired gigabit and then judge it. Using Wi-Fi is going to be a crapshoot. You just didn't notice it on Comcast as your speeds were low in the first place.

    Having AT&T fixed wireless available is a relief for me. I live in a rural area not served by any wired internet (not even DSL). The options are slim - satellite, mobile carrier, and dial up. Although satellite is getting a lot better with the new satellite launches I hope I am never forced down that path. I've used a grandfathered Verizion unlimited account for a while but Verizon eventually shut me down. I've now been using "AT&T blast" service from 4GAS which has been very good to me - although a bit pricey. I've considered going to AT&T unlimited plus with a hot spot, but giving up my AT&T blast account seems risky. I'm not sure I could get it back if I give it up. Knowing that fixed wireless is available is a relief in that I know that if all other options disappear (which I fully expect) I can fall back to fixed wireless.

    It's an interesting offering, and I'll be interested to see reports of actual performance, but the Unlimited Hotspot on an Unlimited AT&T plan just seems like a better deal. What is AT&T blast?

    EDIT: That being said, with FWI, I think AT&T is going to make a killing on this thing. The government is subsidizing them to install the equipment for something that is very cheap to deploy compared to fiber, and a lot of people without other good options will sign up for it. The operating costs for this should be very low, given that the towers and fiber are there anyway, plus they have a lot of revenue upside on overage fees.

    Agreed, unlimited hot spot is better while it exists. Probably little reason to use fixed wireless when hot spot is cheaper and has more data. If you are not willing/able to install an outdoor antenna then you might opt for a professionally installed fixed wireless service.

    AT&T blast is/was a service from 4gantennashop.com (formerly 4GHS?) which I don't see advertised as such anymore. They resell both t-mobile or at&t bandwidth for rural internet. I believe its a legit partnership with t-mobile and at&t. I use a mofi4500 with this service for my internet. Its unlimited and has worked very well for our rural area.

    Gotcha. Some areas would need external antennas, others wouldn't, depending on how strong the signal is. A lot of rural areas have great cell service and nothing else.

    My LG-M150 (Phoenix 3) actually saw Band 30 for at least 25 seconds on eNB 242128 sector 149 today and you guys said it doesn't support Band 30. I didn't hit the screenshot button fast enough to get proof.
