2.6Ghz & 800Mhz Phones

Hello,

 

Sorry, I'm sort of new here (first time to post), so I apologize if this is already posted elsewhere.

 

Does anyone have any insight on when Sprint will be providing phones with 2.6Ghz and/or 800Mhz LTE radios? If so, any specific models? I'm eligible for an upgrade and I'd like to future-proof my next phone a bit. I don't mind waiting to upgrade as I'm fairly happy with my Nexus. 2.6Ghz would be preferable since I'm in the Houston metro and propagation isn't necessarily as important to top-end speed, but 800Mhz would be nice for when inside buildings and 1.9Ghz falls off... Thanks!

I thought about waiting for a tri-band phone, but realized that PCS coverage is solid pretty much where I go, and 800 LTE will help cover any other gaps.

 

As long as I get a consistent 5-7mbps down, I'm fine. I don't necessarily care or need 2.5 for overlay.

Maybe not daily but I could really use it at big sporting events and in packed commercial areas of town (malls).

Josh' date=' it seems that you have figured out how to parse the FCC OET database. I am not sure that I like you stealing my thunder...

Any chance SMR LTE phones include the 850 band as well? Verizon recently said they plan to refarm EVDO as LTE on 850 as soon as they can, I bet companies like US Cellular would do the same. Sprint probably wont have roaming agreements with those companies, but maybe they'll get more flexibility in acquiring spectrum and roaming deals and phones from including the entire smr+cellular bands.

    • Some more interesting articles on Dish: https://www.fiercewireless.com/5g/dish-wireless-bakes-core-principles-infrastructure-chua https://www.fiercewireless.com/tech/dish-eyes-5g-network-reliability-vericas-chaos-engineering-platform    
    • Financially makes sense, but may put them far behind T-Mobile and Verizon 5g marketing.  Could put them up against Dish if Dish gets their act together and starts their public network in Las Vegas in late February.
    • Fiercewireless put out an article today.  Sounds like AT&T wont get heavily started until later this year when equipment will be more available that supports both 3.45GHz and C-Band.
    • They are using DSS on B5 here, on one carrier. LTE-only on the other AFAIK. I kinda hope AT&T doesn't turn DSS on in markets where dropping H+ bumps them from 5x5 for everything else to 10x10. They have 10x10 of B14 and 5x5-10x10 of B12 to throw users on, and with the delays to their C-Band deployment due to waiting for gear their network is effectively LTE-only in many areas despite an increasing proportion of 5G phones. The network was doing just fine without the extra B5 bandwidth, so not a whole lot of reason to basically go backwards when they said they're dropping 3G to expand 5G.
