800mhz spectrum? Sounds and looks good if sprint gets this out there. But I'm wondering if the new current released sprint LTE phones will have the new 800mhz radio set? If not, these current phones are obsolete already.
Still wishing sprint has a wimax+lte phone, cuz I'm happy with wimax coverage where I'm at. Btw, in good wimax coverage cities like Seattle, it is really not that bad at all.
I still have 1 more year before I can replace my OG evo4g, so i can wait to see how this NV deploement will work out.
If I understand right, the new LTE phones are able to do 800Mhz voice/3G but not 800Mhz LTE because it just now got approved by FCC. You'll need to upgrade your phone for 800Mhz LTE when they start appearing. Most upgrade smartphones every 1-2 years anyway.
Probably not practical for phone makes to do WiMAX/LTE combos. When LTE is out though, will have better penetration than WiMAX since LTE is at lower band.
