Verizon 5G Testing

Morning ePenis wood brought to you by Verizon 5G testing:

 

http://9to5mac.com/2015/09/08/verizon-5g-faster-than-google-fiber/

 

Following the article, see the comment from the T-Mobile user who ran five speed tests that racked up 700 MB of data usage in one morning.  Yeah, that goes to show my point about numerous speed tests.

I should have added this to my initial post but I really didn't point this article out to show that Verizon was ahead of the '5G' game or anything. 

 

The one thing I did find interesting is that they do have mud-on-the-wall deployment date of less than 2 years out.  How does this line up with Sprint's '5G' deployment timeline, if that has even been released?

whats the point of those speed for a cell phone. A hot spot maybe, but not needed for a smart phone.

Its more for capacity. The higher the speed means u can distribute it to more devices. That is what 5g is all about is handling all these new internet devices being connected to networks

It's just that the thing is, when Sprint get's all 120+ MHz of 2.5/2.6 they hold deployed, they'll be able to have that same amount of capacity... on LTE. Unless you want to call 6xCA 5G, then what other benefits are there to 5G? I'm sure there are others, I just haven't gotten around to researching them.

Faster ping for self driving cars and other ping needy devices. From what i understand though 6 2.5 carriers on 5g has more capacity than 6 carriers of 2.5 on LTE. If someone thinks that's wrong than please say something cuz im not fully sure

Ah Ping! I forgot about ping! That is something that could be improved on. 20-100 ms is pretty damn good, but if we could get it down to fiber levels (sub-10 ms), that would be something else.

I found this article amusing: http://money.cnn.com/2015/09/08/technology/verizon-5g/index.html

 

They start by saying that Verizon was the first to deploy a 4G network (maybe the first US carrier to deploy an LTE network, but Sprint beat them with WiMax by a couple of years and Korea had it a couple years before that), gush about how great Verizon's new network will be, and then go on to admit that they don't have a clue what 5G actually means.

ITT: Even MORE confusion over what "5G" actually refers to.

 

I will say it makes sense for them to start some sort of hardware upgrade sooner than the other 3 what with LTE on 700UpperC still rolling on Rel. 7. The other 3 carriers can ride out their Rel. 8/9/10 hardware for awhile.

I thought metropcs was the first with an LTE network?

I don't want to hear anything about this until there is an international standard selected for 5G. The LAST thing anybody needs is a company like Verizon going on half-cocked and causing a repeat of the EV-DV/EV-DO fiasco.

Verizon and T-Mobile, the e-penis gods.

Sprint is well on there way to becoming a epen god too. Can we stop with the epenis thing though it's getting old. I don't even look at it as speed anymore but how much extra capacity they can provide to customers.

I think the Admins would require the comments would be G-rated. Easier on the eyes and ears. Also, a bit cleaner language would be a bit more professional, too. Still, I appreciate the technical know-how this site provides.

 

Would require or should require?  S4GRU has long maintained a "PG-13" rating level in its posting guidelines:

Everyone here, including staff, does all of this posting, writing, and moderation work for free, so we like to have a little fun on the side, too -- even if that fun can get a bit ribald at times.

    • Luckily, that hasn't arisen in my area where I am, aside from having B14 (well, ALL of AT&T signal) not work at all in Coosa county, Alabama. I wish there was a service for first responders that would go to ANY available carrier, provider, etc..and in the absolute worst case scenario, would give us service. I've been on an ambulance, trying to find an address, and my driver actually had to pull over and we pulled out a map book and tried to find the road using the "old fashioned way".. and that takes valuable time away that sometimes may be vital to someone surviving. BUT, I will say that I've only seen that in Coosa county... both my Tmo and AT&T phones had zero service and I couldn't get GPS, and neither could my driver (VZW service). Maybe satellite will help with that in those times where that occurs.. but that's an extreme example.     Edit to add: Let me add some context to this.. Coosa county isn't regular coverage area for my job.. so it's not a regular thing that we are dispatched to Coosa county.. and actually, there's been a change and that county now has it's own ambulance service that operates.. so the only time we might receive a request is if it's a multiple casualty scenario, or it's a transfer going home from our contracted hospital.  The way that reads above, it may seem like we are just out without some sort of GPS gadget to direct us on where to go, but for the most part, we know our coverage area pretty well. Dispatch can also give us cross streets for reference inside our coverage area (and our home county). Coosa just isn't a regular area for my job to run in. 
    • "Priority" doesn't mean "exclusivity."  When emergency services don't need B14, AT&T can use it for everyone else.  The trade-off is that when it is needed for emergency services, they not only get all of B14, but they have also arranged for priority on the rest of the AT&T network as well.  Beats having spectrum sitting unused most of the time and then not having enough when disaster strikes, as it could be without a partnership with a wireless company like AT&T. - Trip
    • I've wondered if being on the first responder plan has the priority over other 'regular' lines in the same way firstnet does (or, supposed to do with B14...I've seen normal customers on AT&T hit B14 so it's not {specifically} for Firstnet only)...  
    • T-Mobile prices people pay are all over the map. The free lines are key, so take them if ever offered again.  Your priority level would be a key factor for your price.  Only T-Mobile would know the average prices people pay.  Samsung has been offering very good deals at time of new model introductions so I have gone that route for factory unlocked, which allows me to also have a Verizon priority MVNO for when T-Mobile signal fails or I manually override.
    • I also wanted to post a speed test result.. I only do these once in a while from my home area because we are gonna be the last to see changes, like load balancing.  Right now they are digging all over the place for fiber installs, so I'm not sure what the hold-up is on making the upload speed a little more in-line with download speeds, but here is the most recent from my area:   https://www.speedtest.net/my-result/a/10133670525
