    Is that 20x20 on 5G not LTE.

    I would assume T-Mobile would have to add that to LTE since very few people have 5G phones so it would do very little there to relieve congestion. of cruse if T-Mobile had left all their band 71 on LTE it wouldn't be an issue in the first place.

    I doubt it, they are the slowest in deploying new spectrum, ie CBRS LAA and even the AWS-3 they acquired, I have not seen much reports of them putting it to use.

    CBRS just literally became available for use less than 2-3 months ago.

    I think that this is just a marketing tool for them. Will not see this actually deployed everywhere, maybe only in some congested areas, harder hit by the closures.

    Here, at my house, LTE it's parked on B4/66 (BW 20MHz), with B13 (BW 10 MHz) coming in, as CA, when I run a speed test.
    Right now I had DL 80.5 Mbps and UL 5.8 Mbps.

    Still no signs of AWS-3 spectrum deployed on Verizon here in the NYC metro. T-Mobile has 20x20 band 71 ( which has made a tremendous difference). AT&T also has 20x0 of AWS-4 deployed but not on every site so far.

    Sometimes I wonder if vzw delusionally thinks they don't need more spectrum.

    Spectrum is not all. Add a bunch of cells (diversify) and you have all the capacity you need. As long as your backhaul can cope with that traffic.
    "Spectrum" bandwidth limits only the max theoretical speed on that specific cell.

    Surely, it will probably limit the individual speedtest results, but that' just the insanity... a lot of people seem to think that if you have 400Mbps versus 80Mbps, you have a "better" connection.
    Better for speedtest, but nothing in real life needs that.

    Did you forget about the capacity and spectrum efficiency? More means it can support more users with "good" speed.
