said by dennismurphy:Yep in fact 1900 MHz will actually suck for 4G. And people will complain about that. said by elefante72:
So if there is a spectrum crunch, then why the 9 year cycle to refarm old spectrum--because obviously there is none.
And voice runs over juicy 850Mhz and 1900 which can be easily used for 4G. If VoLTE comes in 2014, then another 7 years to shut down old networks?
Oh what a leisurely pace for such impending disaster.
Nothing leisurely about it. The problem isn't so much handsets, but embedded devices. Lots of work there.
As for the 'juicy' 850mhz band - you know that VZW is using even 'juicier' 700mhz frequencies for LTE, right?
