I have a friend on the inside that says they will be deploying 1xA on the SMR frequency. Hopefully that's actually part of it.
No need to be on the inside to know that. They are already deploying it in some areas. Chicago, DFW, Baltimore, and North CA so far. More are on the way. The areas that won't get it are the border states dealing with agreements with Mex and CA. A couple states won't get 800 LTE due to Southerlinc hanging on to their licenses there.
