    60 day lease. T-Mobile got 600 MHz and Verizon got access to AWS-3 from Dish as well.

    From what I understand to access all of it, yes you would need new handsets. However AWS-3 does incorporate some of the downlink portion of AWS-4. It will be an additional 20 MHz of downlink. I also believe that you would need to be on a site with very modern radios in order for them to turn it on.

    AWS-3 band plan:

    I’d like to see some speedtests

    You could be on band 66 (band 4 is band 66's subnet)

    Good news as my device is older and can use the aws spectrum on downlink. In NYC due to 5G+ deployments, they should have the newest equipment available as permits have been ongoing for awhile. This should be permanent as Dishnetwork was hoarding this spectrum for years and FCC took no action.

    Should be nationwide as 5G will be nationwide low band so it makes sense this will nationwide with at least some of the bands.

    Your device needs to be at least an iPhone 8, Galaxy S8, or LG G6 or newer.

    Dish’s AWS-4 holdings are nationwide, their 700E is everywhere but parts of the east and west coast where AT&T already owns the license.
