    T-Mobile 5G Hawaii

    I have been driving around Honolulu total of about 24 miles.
    I have yet to pick up a Band 71 5G signal. I am only able to pick up Band 2,4 when on 5G and of course the coverages are exactly the as 4glte on band the same bands, I lose signals in the exact same areas. Is T-Mobile fooling us the same as the AT&T 5Ge debacle? Hawaii was part of the phase 3 600mhz upgrade which was completed in Feb/March of this year,so I am not sure why I don't see Band 71 anywhere where here? Anyone else across the country experiencing the same?

    It appears fake 5G showed on your phone, real band 4 LTE

    5G as it is on T-Mobile requires a midband LTE carrier to act as an "anchor" so your 5G coverage will be limited to that of AWS and PCS. Take that for what you will.

    Chicago, IL
    2+46+46+46+4 (85 MHz DL, 15 MHz UL)


    Duluth, MN
    4+14 UL CA (30 MHz DL/UL)

    I ask the same question for band 71 LTE. Apparently in NJ, especially southern NJ, there is supposed to be a lot of 71. Haven’t seen any.

    An interesting video released today by MrMobile, testing 5G in Hawaii.

    Just to note... LTE Discovery doesn't show B71 even on LTE ... At least with my device. It will show another band.Name:  1576033732902.jpeg

    You may want to use Signal Check pro or Cellmapper.net. both work with B71 LTE.. Not sure about N71

    No currently all cell networks are under 3GPP release 15 that is a Non-Stand-Alone version of 5G that uses 4G for controls of the 5 G that increases larceny. In 2020 AT&at, Verizon and T-Mobile will move up to the stand-alone version of 5G. The SA 5G will improve larceny and extra speed of 5G. Lots of new factors are coming soon in 5G that includes Dynamic Spectrum Sharing. DSS ( Release 15) is a stepping stone to the introduction of 5G standalone (SA) mode of operation, which implements 5G end-to-end from core network to radio access, without the usage of an anchor 4G network. https://www.qualcomm.com/news/onq/20...-5g-standalone


    Release 16 (aka 5G Phase II) is due to be completed in June 2020. It will be some time between the completion of the spec and a commercial rollout of Release 16 features on a network.

    I forgot about this. Thanks for sharing Shilo.
