That would be interesting but I dont think it would happen. Verizon recently got into bed with the cable companies. I dont think they would try to compete with cable at this point.

For the spectrum? Dish has plenty and Verizon can buy Dish.

I dont know how valuable Dishs spectrum is in practical terms.

The spectrum that Dish has is not in any of the usual bands. Verizon already has spectrum in 4 bands: 700MHz, 850, 1900 and AWS. Dish, absent a deal with Sprint will have spectrum in two bands. Verizon will probably bid in the 600MHz auction and the AWS-2 or 3 auctions. So unless they are willing to get rid of Dish's spectrum, they will possibly end up with 8 bands. Yikes !!!!!

It's virgin spectrum, its totally unused so whilst it isn't a currently used band and would need new equipment etc it is valuable. It would mean more bands but phones already support 4-6 bands and PA's can now support over 40 bands. Each device wouldn't have to support all the bands, they could spread them out, design phones to support 4 or 6 of the 8 bands and just mix it up. If the 600mhz auction is delayed and they are looking at 5-10 years before it will actually be built out and working, it would seem to be more attractive. Verizon may end up with a lot of spectrum so I hope there are very strict controls over how quickly they buildout and people start to benefit.

    • Well, I saw a good deal on a factory unlocked A32 5G on eBay and was able to convince the seller to show me the software info screen--and it was May.  So I jumped on it. Stuck one of my Tello SIMs in it, and while my Moto One 5G Ace would connect to n71 SA, this phone refuses to do so.  And with only 0 for the TA value, it's less useful for LTE than my older devices.  Oh, and the *#2263# menu doesn't work properly for NR.  So definitely glad I'm able to disable updates. - Trip
    • NextWave re-emerges with 2.5 GHz private network service  https://www.fiercewireless.com/private-wireless/nextwave-re-emerges-25-ghz-private-network-service https://www.nextwave5g.com/nextwave-news The only way for T-Mobile to get up to 190MHz now is to either buy out NextWave in it's entirety or wait until NextWave's lease is up and attempt to "outbid" them for the right to lease the spectrum from the Archdiocese.

    • Mike. I sent in more diags for wi-fi 6e yesterday where SCP shows channel = 0.  Thanks.
    • Added and modified them all! I took a trip through the L train tunnel between 1st Avenue and Bedford Avenue recently and found n41 live in the tunnel. It's 80 MHz, speeds were 250-300, and I didn't have time to check if n71 is there. Some stations speeds slow wayyyy down when a train pulls in now, even the ones with B2 at 15 or 20 MHz, so any upgrade is great sight to see.
