Verizon 5G Discussion


Recommended Posts

The Verge is immediately critical. They say it's really fast but it barely exists.


 Verizon’s 5G data speeds are quite fast compared to what your smartphone can handle right now. I’m hitting between 400 and 600 Mbps on downloads. I can also tell you that, at least in Chicago, this feels like a premature launch, and 5G can be awfully hard to come by. When you do find it, you've basically got to stay where you are to see what it's capable of.

I figured since Verizon's 5G-NR network officially launched it would make sense for there to be a thread for it.

That thing is hideous.


In the rare speckled spotted defense of 5Ge, I get like pings, on a 4x4 mimo cat-18 LTE embedded card connected to an ugly cousin of that small cell in my garage, on band 2 with signal at -110 dBm. To a server hundreds of miles away. This test was performed over 2.4GHz WiFi at that. 

Lol this Five Gee is going to be a trip. They have already trashed the aesthetic. Gen 1 is just a bigger pipe that takes up a bigger chunk of pixels with a bigger screen indicator connected to a bigger octopus of networking gear. This test should have deployed and been conducted in T E X A S.

Doesn't seem like something you'd want to deploy all over cities.  Hell, imagine all those stations everywhere from multiple carriers.  Hopefully they can package those up nicer and cities don't allow that nasty all over their cities.

Seems like a good thing though to have in your arsenal.  Just putting one up where major events happen. Times were you normally bring in a COW, just drop a couple of these suckers. Im hoping that Sprint will at least get a little mmWave.  

Beyond mmWave, it will be interesting to see what ATT/VZW 5G strategy ends up being.

      Would love to hear some feedback on this device. I'm strongly considering picking this thing up! 
      Some basic interesting facts about the One plus 7 pro 5G..
      Snapdragon 855 CPU
      8GB RAM
      AMOLED QHD+ 
      In-screen fingerprint sensor
      All screen design with pop up camera
      No wireless charging 
      No official IP rating (supposedly can handle being underwater or being wet without issues for short periods)

      I'm new to this forum, and I've seen people mention cell sites with specific ID's (for example, SF33XC664). Is there any significance to these ID's, and is there a way to decode them? Also, how do I figure out what the cell site ID's are for towers near me?
      Thanks! I'm excited to start talking on this site more 😀

      I was taking a look at the HTC 5G Hub that's supposed to be launching on Sprint sometime this month. It looks like it could technically be Sprint's first foray into the WISP space. On HTC's site they mention it as a sort of replacement for your WiFi router with the ability to connect up to 20 devices to it. I wonder what data caps will be on this when it launches and what they plan on charging people for using it?
      It seems to be a lot of things smashed into one device. It's combining a wireless router, a streaming box, and a cloud gaming device all into one. It also has support for pretty much every U.S. LTE band.
