    New iPhones Support CBRS

    Band 48 is included in all iPhone 11 models! This will benefit all AT&T customers when power user iPhone traffic is shifted to CBRS, freeing up the traditional lower bands.

    The Pixel 3 and 3 XL support Band 48? GSMArena doesn't list that particular LTE band: https://www.gsmarena.com/google_pixel_3_xl-9257.php

    Edit: It looks like Band 48 support will be added in a future software update (https://9to5google.com/2019/01/03/go...-cbrs-support/). I don't think this has happened yet...

    Android 10 was recently released (I just updated my Pixel 3aXL). I wonder if Google included Band 48 with that?

    Doubtful it will work like that. Band 48 CBRS is unlicensed shared spectrum. As data consumption is going up, devices aren’t being offloaded from existing older bands to make the devices perform better. If you have newer devices you will get faster speeds where available but traditional bands get most of the usage because more people are on it as higher bands will have less people on it and be selectively deployed. More users always go on the network consuming more data and the lower band spectrum isn’t being freed up because more people are always on the lower bands at one time.

    Its impossible for AT&T to create a substantial enough network at the higher bands for coverage because it is cost prohibitive and has NIMBY issues as well.
