    5G Launch Impact on Band 71 LTE

    I’m wondering if we will see a broader launch of LTE on Band 71. If they are going to cover 200 million people with 5G on December 6, I imagine they can broadcast LTE on Band 71 at the same time.

    Until DSS is up and running, B71 will be primarily allocated to n71.

    Don't respect to have creazy speed on band 71. It's going to be single channel with no CA.

    I know they are continuing to expand mmWave NR in metro areas. Hopefully we get an update on this too.

    I agree with others that Band 71 is mainly a “coverage,” band not a capacity one.

    For me the biggest benefit will be when T-Mobile can offload those clogging up LTE to NR capable devices where available.

    I agree that it won’t add capacity but think they need to also improve coverage.

    It sounds like there will be slight side benefit with Band 71 LTE coverage.

    Not likely to have that much coverage in 2019, maybe December 2021 or later. I thought like the other big carriers, 5G is still in test markets and limited to certain areas of those cities. Does T-moble even sell any 5G handsets nationwide yet ?
    Don't make me turn this car around.....

    From what I've read everywhere that has band 71 will have n71 on Dec 6th. Not sure why it will take until December 2021 since all the TV stations will have moved by July 3rd 2020

    15X15 MHz LTE > 5 MHZ LTE and 10 MHZ 5G. Utterly disappoint in T-Mobile. 15X15 worth considering switching. 5X5 not worth it. can't compete.

    My comment was meant as a bit of sarcasm mixed with reality. 5G is far from nationwide deployment to cover 200 million customers anytime this year and not likely by December 2020 from everything I have read and seen. The sheer number of required antennas/panels to cover that many customers nationwide is mind numbing.

    Keep in mind that 5G has much shorter range than the previous technologies (3G and 4G) and many more towers/panels will need to be added to provide adequate coverage. Technically the 4G networks aren't going to be shut down anytime soon and the 5G systems will incorporate them to fill the gaps.

    No offense but you need study up on 5G. It's shorter because they are currently using mmwave frequencies. Band 71 and n71 will have the exact same range

    Supported bands on the T-Mobile/AT&T Note 10+ 5G. Sub-6 only....no mmWave.

    Fair enough. Thanks for the chart. I stand corrected.

    I read that about at&t assumed t-mobile would be the same way. So people have to choose between low band 5G or mmwave 5G in their $1000+ phones. And Verizon is the crazy one for waiting until phones that can handle both come out before deploying low band 5G. People that have mmwave 5G phones are going to be mad when they can't access lowband 5G and these with lowband 5G phones are going to be mad when they don't get these 1 Gbps speed tests and not even 100 Mbps speed tests
