Metro uses AWS for LTE right?

So does this mean all the carriers that use AWS for LTE have cross compatibility? It wouldn't be a situation like AT&T and Verizon where their 700MHz is different from each other. One on the higher end and one on the lower?

AT&T is planning on using AWS for the uplink and VZW was to follow too. So not sure. But, since there are no LTE iPhones its moot and outside of the 3gs and until late next month, only the 3gs will be unlocked for those done with contract.

I think three of the four largest US carriers have some AWS spectrum-- the only hold-out would be Sprint, who is using 800/850/1900 for their LTE network.

Now wouldn't it be nice for us consumers if:

- The LTE carriers developed networks using a common spectrum
- Instituted roaming agreements

It would allow all carriers to build out over time, lowering their roaming costs as they build out their own networks.
