    Band 71

    Probably a dumb question but I will risk it

    My phone uses band 71 for 5g (I think I have this right) and I believe Dish is taking band 71. What will my phone (LG V60) use for 5g?

    The only dumb question is the one left unasked. No. DISH is taking Band-26. They own some band-71, which they will keep. T-Mobile has a sizable chunk of band-71, nationwide.

    Dish has loaned all of their B71 licenses to T-Mobile for 60 days at no cost to help in the Coronavirus issue. Dish that will be roaming on T-Mobile may decide to have a new lease with T-Mobile to get revenue until they have they are ready to deploy their own B71 Spectrum.

    dish might as well lease it to T-Mobile since they will be roaming on T-Mobile's network they would essentially be roaming on their own spectrum but getting paid for it. Which in turn can offset some of the cost for roaming on T-Mobile's network.

    I still look for a network sharing/hosting arrangement. I see a lot of efficiencies in not having to support dual infrastructures.

    It actually may buy Dish some time, as spectrum is often a use it or lose it. Even though it's TMobile using it, I suspect that doesn't hurt Dish.
    If you're in SoCal, TMobile itself has 15x15 worth. Typically it is 5x5 B71 LTE and 10x10 n71 5G. Dish is lending some spectrum, and TMOBILE here is currently pushing 15x15 B71... And not sure how much n71

    Which band is mid band spectrum. I understand that is what sprint has. Just wondering if the LG v60 handles that.

    Sprint has B41 2.5GHz on both LTE and 5G. Also B25 1.9GHz, but I don't think that is being used for 5G. The LG V60 supports these.

    It used to be that "mid-band" was 1GHz to 2GHz. "High-band" was above 2GHz. That was before mmWave. It now seems that people are calling anything from 1GHz to 5GHz "mid-band" and everything above 5GHz is "high-band". YMMV.

    When you are looking at a phone that claims to be 5g,what do you look for in mid band. I already know my phone does not get mmWave and dont care but I do care that it gets the mid band. I bought an LG v60. Very nice phone.

    No. Band 26 is Sprint's low-band. It's the same as band 5 but with a 10 MHz extension on the low side of the blocks. Sprint's band 26 licenses will be transferred to DISH. Sprint's mid-band is band 25 and (depending on you definition of "mid-band") band 41.
