3GPP approves LTE band 70 for Dish Spectrum

Band 70 comprises Dish's current AWS-4 spectrum (2000 MHz to 2020 MHz), its H Block downlink spectrum (1995 MHz to 2000 MHz), and unpaired AWS-3 uplink spectrum (1695 MHz to 1710 MHz). The 3GPP agreed to the specifications three weeks ago; formal approval will enable the development of devices and infrastructure supporting Band 70.

I know that I am asking you to speculate, but what do you think of the possibility that Dish invests in Sprint or T-Mobile in return for getting their spectrum hosted? Is Dish just a spectrum speculator or are they interested in being a wireless operator?

And as I have said, I look for 5/10/15 MHz FDD carrier bandwidths standardized, perhaps only in the 1695-1710 MHz x 1995-2010 MHz pairing.  The other 10 MHz, possibly limited to 2010-2020 MHz will be for supplemental downlink carrier aggregation.

 

Also, note that the PCS H block uplink at 1915-1920 MHz gets orphaned.  But that is just as well.  It may have been getting too close for comfort to the PCS A block downlink at 1930-1945 MHz.  And Sprint owns a lot of PCS A block spectrum.

So is Dish getting B70 to make the spectrum more valuable, or to actually deploy it? From what I've read, they've done nothing in terms of actually utilizing the spectrum for broadband or fixed wireless.

Only thing Dish has done was the fixed wireless trials with Ntelos and Sprint but that was Sprint's and Ntelos's own spectrum.

    • 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.
