    T-Mobile to buy 1150 MHz of millimeter-wave spectrum covering Ohio for 5G

    I still don't get this mmWave spectrum demand due to it shortcoming in physics capability but T-Mobile is buying more in Ohio to add to their other high mmWave spectrum assets. Better to buy it than to be sorry... at least it can be used for P2P tower backhaul.

    “Further, coordination between the Parties will allow T-Mobile to make immediate use of the remaining 29100 to 29250 and 31075 to 31225 MHz portions of the Licenses for microwave backhaul.”

    Well at least the Spectrum Gateway guy "Sgteg"
    likes this mmWave buy for T-Mobile from Reddit.

    T-Mobile is actually contributing heavily to 3GPP mmwave specifications for bands n257 (27.5-28.35 MHz range in the US) and n260 (38.6-40 GHz range in the US). Just yesterday I discovered they, along with Samsung and Ericsson, are working on the following NR CA combinations that cover virtually all their spectrum holdings except one small 850 MHz license:

    n2+n71, n2+n257, n2+n260
    n66+n71, n66+n257, n66+n260
    n71+n257, n71+n260
    n257 intra-band, n260 intra-band
    Standardization of n257 and n260 bands is more important for mobile use than for fixed. Backhaul doesn't need 3GPP standardization at all. So I'm pretty sure they will use mmwave for mobile."
