Basically Money savings on 2.5 mostly rural auction are funding 600MHz purchases. Also mentions continuing purchases of 2.5 outright. Likely understates the amount of MHz.
Auction going slightly faster with 4 auction sessions per day now, but still less than 80% "settled". After 18 rounds it is at $190 Million, with $400 to $800 Million expected. could go on for another month. check here for updates about 1 hour after each round: https://www.sashajavid.com/FCC_Auction108.php#county_details_table_overlay
Yeah, I went up to Kitsap on Friday. Was able to connect to several n41 sites as SA only in Port Orchard, Bremerton and Silverdale. However, I could not get any throughput. It would say Mobile Data Suspended. n41 NSA would throughput just fine. Was pushing 500-800 Mbps.
I don't know if it was the network at the time or my device causing the failure for data throughput. It was the exact same result on every site I connected to. I'm on a normal Tmo Postpaid SIM. Nothing unusual. LG V60.
I did mention it before, but I don't remember if I did post a picture of it, so I did a 2-for-1 special the second time around.
Ah, so that is what I saw. I walk by Boys and Girls field if the C train takes forever to show up in the late evening, but I cared more about getting home than investigating it lol
