Re: LTE has been here, FYI
Regional carriers couldn't get their hands on any of the 700 MHz spectrum, so most were stuck with AWS or a non-standard frequency set. AWS seems to work just fine for LTE, though. Even at a signal of -110 I can still browse the web just fine and speedtests are still around 5-10 Mbps. In fact, I did a speedtest on my phone just now. At -110, I got 21/4 Mbps.
GCI has a pure 1900 MHz GSM/UMTS network in the cities, so there aren't a lot of problems with network density to get 2100 MHz going for the downstream LTE. Everything seems to work just fine so far.
