Re: Actually.. their will never be a Spectrum Apocalypse..

said by iansltx:

I'm pretty sure that an EvDO line card can't do 1x, and vice versa.

Right, but what stops them from just shutting down EvDO and reassigning the channel to voice service? Would it be a limitation of the 1x line cards, they can only handle so many simultaneous channels or some such?

Mostly idle curiosity on my part, but seeing the failure of the cellular network did reinforce my belief that POTS is worth the $0.80/day it costs.

Probably lack of available line cards.
