Dish asks for FCC Waiver on 700MHz Buildout


Recommended Posts

Heck, Dish could lose their rebanded fka-S-band spectrum as well. I certainly don't want to see that stuff going to AT&T or Verizon (though of the two AT&T needs it more) but that just might happen.

Take it easy, guys. Dish has only Lower 700 MHz E block 6 MHz unpaired licenses. There is no legitimate use case for that spectrum currently. Some relief is justified. AT&T would file for the same for its unpaired spectrum, but Qualcomm likely already satisfied those buildout requirements with its ill fated MediaFLO broadcast deployment. So, AT&T probably has that as a get out of jail free card.

Much ado about nothing.  Let Charlie have his waiver, and go back to Denver and lick his wounds.

    • What devices should do, and what they actually do, are two very different things! As you've probably heard me mention countless times, many of those screens get information in a proprietary manner directly from the modem; apps like SignalCheck can only get what the OS is reporting. I did find your earlier reports, and as I guessed, the OS was reporting valid signal strength. I will try to figure out a solution.
    • Service mode shows the SIM as having no service, so I would think the device should report that. I believe I sent a diagnostic report a little while back—can you check to see if you have it?
    • Interesting, that doesn't happen on my P7. Can you send me a diagnostic report the next time you see that please? Hopefully the phone isn't actually reporting the -115, that will be tricky.
    • Hey Mike—another dual SIM bug. If one SIM loses service, it doesn’t disappear from the app.  I’ve seen this a couple times—my Dish SIM will lose service (confirmed in service mode), but SCP won’t stop displaying -115 or so. And it logs a data point at that signal every time the location updates.  Along the same lines, I have a custom trigger set up for 313340 (Dish), and the custom trigger keeps firing when this is happening.
