    That's the second time this week I've seen a reference to Verizon having dual 20x20 MHz AWS-1 carriers deployed. Did Verizon double its Band 4 holdings without any of us hearing about it?? I thought they could only ever deploy a single 20x20 Band 4 carrier in a given market, tops.

    Just depends on the market. According to Spectrum Omega, I've got 2 20x20s in my market.

    The other reference was yourself and I had corrected you because you were comparing two different market types (CMA and BMA) which is just a different way of the license being split geographically. There is not one market where Verizon owns 80 MHz of AWS-1.

    Verizon’s Gigabit strategy has been proven time and time again to be 1 20 MHz B4 carrier + 3 LAA channels. The author of the article either misread the menu or Verizon was just showing proof of concept.

    AWS-1 and PCS I would assume.

    Ah. I misunderstood this reply when I first read it:

    For example, here are T-Mobile’s spectrum holdings for your area.

    So after speaking with the Spectrum Omega developer, he set me straight on CMA vs BEA, et. al. Keep in mind that the map still can't accurately tell you what actual spectrum a carrier has, because its data does not take into account certain geographic or frequency spectrum swaps/splits.

    However, CMA, BEA, etc. only defines the shape of the geographic area. You'll notice that all CMA designated blocks share the same geographic boundaries. But when you flip over to BEA, those blocks all have the same shaped boundaries with one another. Sometimes it's a county, other times it's something else. Some of the areas cover more than one state.

    If your city appears to have certain blocks on a given carrier, then it really does have them (again, subject to spectrum sharing/splitting that we can't see on the map). But simply seeing one block marked CMA and one marked BEA does not necessarily mean you don't have them both.

    Ha! I do. VoLTE is great. I'm not sure how much of a rip I give about CD quality voice, though.

    I am on the older end of Gen X, and my voice usage has gone from roughly 1000 minutes a month about 15 years ago, to typically less than 10. Most of my usage is data. There are much better ways to communicate for most purposes now.

    46 here. I'm the same way, but I've never been a huge phone talker, beyond my high school years (86-90) anyway lol

    Call me. Don't text.
    You need to send 20 texts to clarify something that would have taken 20 seconds on a call.

    That’s great news to hear that EVS is live with Verizon. I know when I was trialing t-mobile I could tell the difference between Verizon HD voice and T-Mobile EVS. I have really bad hearing so at least to me it makes a huge difference.

    Enhanced Voice Services (EVS)

    I'm 23, I like to talk on the phone or prefer to text all depending on my mood or who it is. I've used around 1,900 minutes in a month several times before. I used to hate talking on the cell before HD voice, and preferred the landline then.

    And I figured Verizon must've launched EVS by now but of course they don't mention it like T-Mobile does along with every other little thing they do.
