I love this stuff:
“Standalone 5G really is the future of wireless connectivity,” said Karri Kuoppamaki, vice president of Technology Development and Strategy at T-Mobile, who noted that SA is what enables the more transformative 5G capabilities like self-driving vehicles, super-charged IoT and real-time translation.
Good luck making money out of IoT. 🤣
Which reminds me, N41 is not included in the 5G SA launch so they have to expend additional time to bring that over. They could not wait until now to connect both n71 and n41 to the SA network?
All Good Valid Questions. If I remember correctly, I think T-Mobile has to assist with financing should Shentel want to buy out T-Mobiles assets. If my memory is good on that point, it might make a difference.
T-Mobile surely has their hands full of issues in the country. If I were in their shoes, I would be very happy to have Shentel upgrade and manage all assets in the current Shentel area. Shentel's Sprint network is very very good. They built a network that was better then Sprint was elsewhere. There is no question that Shentel would do a much better job combining the networks than T-Mobile would. T-Mobile really needs Shentel to continue their good work. I hope T-Mobile realizes that.
T-Mobile's network in most of the Shentel territory is not good. Shentel's Sprint network is very very good. Shentel could easily combine them efficiently and have a superior network to anybody else.
So does anyone have experienced band 71 that's basically unusable and band 12 unusable? I've had no luck with either one in month's. I'm in the Denver area. Just wondering if it's just my area or nation wide.
