Re: No AWS HSPA?
I'm really, really curious about speedtests on Tmo's LTE network! Exciting times right now.
I really don't think there will be a spectrum crunch in 2015 like the FCC or whoever predicted.
so long as end users can get no less than 2-5mbps, then there's no spectrum crunch as far as I'm concerned. And on Verizon's nearly 2.5y/o LTE network I still get well above 2-5mbps in most places, even 30+mbps. So really,... what's gonna change in the next 24-30mo's in users habits that there will be a spectrum crunch.
Both ATT & Vzn have something like 20mhz chunks of 700mhz LTE in most places.
And once Tmo combines it's spectrum with MetroPCS they'll have lots, and lots of spectrum in most places.
Plus with the enhanced efficiencies that come with LTE-Advanced,. . .I really don't think there will very a spectrum crunch.
