    Lightbulb Verizon Gigabit LTE

    Since T-Mobile launched LTE-A in 920 markets & Gigabit LTE in 430 markets earlier this week, https://www.cnet.com/news/t-mobiles-...markets-in-us/ do you think Verizon will be launching there Gigabite LTE before the end of this year?


    Verizon called T-Mobile's assertions "inaccurate." For example, Verizon has LTE-A in nearly 2,000 markets (Verizon launched LTE-A back in August 16' to 461 cities) and has the underpinnings for gigabit LTE in 560 markets to T-Mobile's 430. "This is another example of T-Mobile's marketing getting ahead of the facts," spokesman Howie Waterman said.

    SO when do you think Verizon will be launching theirs?

    Bands 252 & 255 are for LTE-U, which Verizon pretty much abandoned. Band 46 is for LAA. So I assume Band 46 will possibly be enabled on the Verizon S8 & Note 8 variant at some time.

    Correct. Band 48 will be future 3.5 GHZ in the CBRS spectrum. It’s still in question whether the fcc will auction off that spectrum as it’s more effective with range and can be deployed on macro sites.

    I wonder whether Apple will turn on Band 46 for Qualcomm iDevices that support it.

    Doesn't both LTE-U and LTE-AA spectrum require a licenced band to pair with while being utilized? Both are technically unlicensed but B46 has a much more available spectrum to utilize. The reason I asked, is bands 252 and 255 are listed on my S8 running Verizon firmware.

    iFixit Teardown ( https://www.ifixit.com/Teardown/iPhone+X+Teardown/98975 )shows the iPhone X has a Snapdragon X16 modem, ( https://www.qualcomm.com/products/sn...ems/4g-lte/x16 ) which is Gigabit LTE compatible.

    Specifically, the iPhone X A1865 uses the Qualcomm MDM9655 Snapdragon X16 LTE modem while the iPhone X A1901 has the Intel XMM 7480 modem. Apple confirmed that the new iPhones will be able to tap into LTE Advanced networks, which have a theoretical peak speed of 500 megabits per second.

    Extremely unlikely. They wouldn’t even turn on Band 4 HSPA+ for iPhone 5’s that supported it. Instead, they made 0 hardware changes and enabled it going forward on new devices manufactured.

    I am curious to know how this will work for unlocked devices like the Pixel 2. With Verizon sending out specific security updates for each Gigabit capable Verizon branded phone to enable Gigabit LTE (Moto Z2 already configured and next up is the Samsung S8 line), does the unlocked Pixel 2 already have by default the config set to use the Gigabit LTE bands?

    The Pixel 2 unfortunately doesn’t have the required bands and carrier aggregation support for “gigabit” LTE.

    Didn't Verizon say that the Moto Z2 force will be Gigabit capable to. I ask cause the only spec's I see don't include 252 255 or 46. The unlocked version does but will that work on Verizon.
