I'll bet people will complain about those speeds because Verizon and AT&T are getting faster then that

TMobile still has a lot of work to do with LTE consistency where I live. You know like instead of tooting your own horn about your service put your money where your mouth is and keep improving upon it.

They already are complaining. Either way, those speeds drop significantly once there's a pane of glass in the way.

I'll be totally honest I don't give a darn about 5G or any of that stuff. I'm perfectly content with 4G LTE.

PCMag got to test T-Mobile's 5G network in NYC unofficially by using a T-Mobile SIM in an Verizon S10 5G.

T-Mobile's midtown macro site spacing is good enough for pretty much seamless outdoor coverage. They mention it's 100MHz of spectrum which has a max speed of 650Mbps but they were only able to hit up to 500Mbps. Then (they believe) that T-Mobile caught on and started capping their speeds.

I know everyone has different needs.  30-50 download and 20-40 upload seem to be sufficient for me.  Coverage is my biggest concern.  I hate to get out on the highway somewhere and not get a signal.

Obviously I don't like that either. Coverage needs to be ubiquitous.

Yes, no one needs that speed on their phone. But I see it as a proxy for how much capacity is available, since the network is currently unloaded. So in that sense, 800+ Mbps means that a site can handle a lot of traffic without getting congested, vs 400 Mbps means it can absorb about half as much traffic before becoming congested.

Also I find that type of speed on a cellphone ridiculous. unless it's some type of data have the application like virtual reality or something that takes up a ridiculous amount of bandwidth. I mean for Pete's sake I have a gigabit internet connection in my home. And I don't even use half that bandwidth.

I got this awhile back right when a new site came live.  Basically 5G for me. 😃

      Fierce has a poll posted... and is utilizing a bracket style contest to find out who their readers think is the most powerful person in the telecom industry. Between Marcelo and the pink clad Chihuahua of a man... I give it to Marcelo. I think the final winner should be Masa, it's is a name people know and will get to know more in the coming years worldwide. But for the current poll, it's an easy decision for me!

      T-mobile Ericsson Cell Equipment
       
      For Ericsson markets t-mobile uses what is known as AIR antenna units which have the radio unit integrated with the antenna. This type of setup significantly reduces signal loss from the radio to the antenna since they're both practically next to each other and not sepearated by coax jumper cables like that of a remote radio unit.
       
      Basic Ericsson AIR21 setup
      (Note typically there are 2 Ericsson AIR per sector)

       

       

       
      Ericsson AIR21 + Band 12 700 mhz Equipment
       
      Note the addition of a new low band 700 mhz capable antenna + Ericsson RRUS11 B12 (remote radio units) in addition to new TMA (tower mounted amplifiers) connected to the AIR antenna. The new Ericsson RRUS11 B12 + Antenna addition is for tmobiles band 12 700mhz (L700) deployment.

      With the introduction of the new plans Sprint has announced. I told one of my friends about the $60 unlimited plan and she was shocked yet happy about it. She currently has T-Mobile and there has been times where my Sprint service has out performed her service even in the city with puling up information and out of town...well... you already know how that went. She was talking about switching and stuff but then she sent me a typical article bashing Sprint and I got irritated by it and I had to explain to her that Sprint is not bad at all. These articles are based on past experiences from 3+ years ago. I told her I'm pulling 60+ mbps on LTE but she's worried about Sprint being slow ( because of what she read). Guys give me some advice on persuading her to give Sprint a chance. 
       
      I feel like articles that are being posted is what keeps away customers.  It makes no sense that T-Mobiles 2g network is not spoken about when they are in the news for changes to plans and such. But good ol Sprint makes changes and articles that get posted rips Sprint apart for filth.

      Roger Cheng @cnet appears to have had the most fun out of this, it kind of wrote the story for him I guess, so there is that. Also, just noticed the extra title Q, that is gonna drive some people nuts today. Top lel.

      Am I the only one that likes to look at Verizon's coverage comparison tool. I think it gives a good idea of a carrier's generalized coverage as far as those cities that have been announced. However, it takes a while for it to get updated. I look at Verizon's map and think, no one will ever build an LTE network of that size. When I look at T-Mobile, I see a spotty, spread out network. AT&T is also spotty with a few highways covered here and there. Sprint seems to be more put together as in even if it is spotty, they are in blobs rather than random remote areas.
       
      I've also found a few places that Sprint has coverage in but not Verizon such as in southern Texas.
