The argument is not so easy as "Low frequency delivers wide".
Its true that low frequency can deliver signal to a longer distance, thus making it suitable for low development countries.
BUT, it also means low frequency penetrates buildings lesser, so expect blackouts in malls/ lifts, etc.
Secondly, its data carrying capacity is not that much, nor the user capacity. So, how will they deliver 5G speeds to a broad population?
Baykko, 12 Jul 2019I wonder why would Verizon and ATT allow T-Mobile to get away with this band spectrum. Since T... moreThe simple answer is that T-Mobile has been more aggressive in their spending for upgrading and expanding their infrastructure compared to the other carriers. The others would prefer to save the money and just pretend they have 5G. AT&T has already been guilty of this.
sr777, 12 Jul 2019The lower the carrier frequency is, the lower the amount of data it can carry. 5G is all about... moreUnder 600Mhz is complete gimmick , you are right
It's like in India where they actually use 3G++ Network but advertised as 4G, but our Fake Â“4G" networks can't even stream 480p on YouTube
Indian 4G is beyond pathetic
The lower the carrier frequency is, the lower the amount of data it can carry. 5G is all about transferring larger amounts of data in a shorter amount of time.
So this is not true 5G, just a gimmick to trick people.
I wonder why would Verizon and ATT allow T-Mobile to get away with this band spectrum. Since T-Mobile is kind of a new comer to the USA market the other two should have been prepared for this battle a long time ago.
what happens to those 4G radio frequencies that companies already own? can they be used for 5G eventually? maybe that's why Verizon and ATT didn't care since they already have a hold of most bands and most extended coverage through USA.
