Just got the Magic Box a few days ago. I have an iphone 7 plus. The data speeds have increased from 0.50 Mbps to about an average 2 Mbps.
The phone shows full bar strength for signal. I though that the bars only indicate call signal strength (CDMA2000) and not data. If the Magic box is for data only, why does my phone show a much improved signal for voice?
Verizon definitely has more LTE coverage than T-Mobile, although I think I’d say that within each provider’s footprint, T-Mobile provides LTE a greater percent of the time than Verizon.
Sprint is not deploying any new 3G-only sites. All new sites from here on out are either full NV sites (1x/3G/LTE) or LTE-only.
