Here's an old thread where he and you argued basically the same topic as this thread. https://www.howardforums.com/showthr...hlight=gsminct
    You think if he didn't want to be caught he change up his arguments and not give out his location. Some people can't help themselves

Is this statement still valid? The CDMA traveling and penetrating farther makes more sense to me, but I’m not too sure.
    CDMA (and WCDMA on AT&T) are much more resilient in mountainous areas. Not sure about flatter areas, I believe it's less of a factor there. I can confirm that there can be large areas covered only by WCDMA from a tower that has LTE in a mountainous area. Those areas will lose service when 3G is shut down on Verizon and AT&T unless they build out more towers.

    I can say as someone who travels around the country for work, Verizon has some magical engineers in SoCal, and if they put that much effort into their network everywhere else in the nation, this topic would never come up.

    I never once have an issue with data speeds in SoCal or the Bay Area for some reason (usually 100+Mbps unless i'm right around an airport) but go back east/midwest and i'm back to my usually 1-5Mbps during peaktimes.
