    So, T-Mobile may end up with PCS 25x25 + 5x5. In which case they might slice that as 20x20 LTE + 5x5 UMTS + 5x5 LTE band 25 and switch that isolated AWS block back to LTE. The would allow older phones to still work somewhat in NYC.
    Since there are only three major networks it would be wise for a network spectrum swap to make more contiguous blocks.

    I doubt that anyone would be willing to help T-Mobile by taking G-block. With T-Mobile now having so much band-41 I doubt they'd see the need to tweak their PCS holdings. "I need to study on this some."

    I知 sure T-Mobile will take time preparing sprints PCS for their new network . They still have a lot of sprint customers they have to migrate over. I知 assuming we値l see band 25 ?

    A band-25 MFBI is just a software configuration update. My point is that I doubt that anyone would trade a band 5, 2 or 4 block for an equivalent amount of the band 26, 25 or 66 extensions. They work the same but there are devices still in use that can't use the use the extended bands.

    In the last spectrum swap, Sprint traded with T-Mobile, AT&T and Verizon to get adjacent blocks of spectrum. Mainly they tried to trade so they can get C block spectrum adjacent to G. There might be some swap opportunities now that T-Mobile owns a lot of PCS spectrum. Of course both parties have to benefit from the swap.

    Does LTE-A even support 30x30 configuration?

    No. 20x20 is the maximum but that does not mean that a carrier can't own more than that.

    Well of of course they can own more than that. But when you were mentioning 25x25 and 30x30, once you go past 20, it doesn't seem to matter whether the blocks are continuous,

    I wonder what they're going to do with the extra blocks. NR? H+? Additional RRHs/panels for LTE?

    Well, I did raise the question if it would be better to divide a contiguous 30x30 block into a 20x20 plus a 10x10 or two 15x15 blocks.

    I don't think it matters since both require a second RRH/panel.

    I remember a while back, TMo confirmed that once the merger is completed that the OnePlus McLaren and Note 10+ 5G will support Sprint痴 5G N41 band. Here are the link to this statement to refresh our memories:

    https://www.tmonews.com/2019/10/onep...mobile-merger/

    https://www.pcmag.com/news/exclusive...e-merger-ready

    Does anybody know if n41 support is live on these 2 phones?

    One thing I noticed is that it looks like Sprint has sites in Grand Teton and Yellowstone. This could help T-Mobile provide service in those difficult to access locations.

    P.S. Sprint's coverage map shows only roaming coverage in Yellowstone. I don't know why CellMapper shows native service, except it was last seen in 2016. A COW maybe?
