Verizon 5G Discussion

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.

is that T-mobile speed test with LAA?

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.

    • At least a few sites in STL are now at 100 MHz.
    • 100 MHz n41 is live in Austin and...Bentonville, Arkansas. Guessing this went live on Tuesday or Wednesday in Austin; network was acting a bit wonky on Tuesday. Noticed it yesterday, as I'm still a little too far away at home to catch n41. Peak speed in Bentonville 1/3 mi from the site was 675-700 Mbps down, 80-90 Mbps up, with the upload speed only possible with a 20 MHz B66 anchor...which seems congested at times. They also have 5 MHz B2 here as an anchor, which predictably leads to slow uploads. n71 is 15x15 here. Sprint B25 is two 5x5 channels. Weirdly, seems like I'm being routed through Nashville, so latency is rather high, and tethering performance is somehow quite poor...maybe it's due to congestion on the PCC meaning that the difference between on-phone and tethered priority is the difference between a usable connection and...not. Also, VZW (with the old Alltel SID for CDMA) is what you end up using inside the Crystal Bridges museum, though the area has WiFi so not the end of the world.
    • The Sprint site at 520/202 was decommissioned a few weeks ago. Everything was pulled off the pole. 
    • It looks like N5 supports 5, 10, 15, and 20 MHz channel widths. I wonder how long they'll wait before they make a change to be able to use more of that spectrum for N5. Possible options I see: Use 15x15 as B26/N5 using DSS (If thats an option, or would it have to match and be N26?) 5x5 as B5 LTE for older phones and that still leaves 5x5 for HSPA.  A more aggressive option would be to use 20x20 for N5 exclusively and 5x5 for HSPA. This still leaves 10x10 B12 and 10x10 B14 for older phones for low band. Hopefully they enable SA if they go this route. Since I believe you can't aggregate low band LTE with low band NR in most cases, phones using the N5 carrier would not be touching the B12 and B14 carriers. If they enable SA on the 20x20 N5 carrier it would also help free up their limited midband spectrum for older non-NR phones. That would also prevent falling back to LTE only inside a building just because the mid-band anchor band was too weak. In Daytona AT&T was broadcasting 5x5 B2, 10x10 B66, and 10x10 B30 and that was it for midband. 
    • I've found 2 decommissioned Sprint sites in Louisville, both were sites with both T-Mobile and Sprint. In both cases all Sprint tower equipment including the rack were removed. I haven't had time to dig through our permit site to see if I can find anything, but I'll be surprised if I do.
