Re: Scorecard

Metro+TMo will have some 700mhz lte just like metro does now, it could be used exclusively to enhance indoor coverage

MetroPCs has one 700 license and no phones that support the band. They will probably sell it to AT&T once this deal is done.

I wouldn't call that no phones. 700mhz is the spectrum to have for indoor coverage

Show me the specs of one of those phones where it says that 700MHz LTE support is included.

Oh wait...they're all AWS/1900. It doesn't make sense, as even a semi-national provider, to get phones that support 700 LTE for a single 5x5 market.

You're right, I was under the impression that metro had 5x5 LTE in the 700mhz space, and that's why it's so slow.

They have 1.4x1.4 LTE in some places. That's why it's so slow.
