PoPs: The question 2
AT&T covers nearly 250M PoPs now.

Re: 2x20MHz VolTE etc.
Yeah, it seems to me the challenge they all face now is filling out handoff and coverage enough so that they can move to VoLTE. Everything I've seen so far suggests that could be a rocky path but we're still in the early stages really.

Re: 2x20MHz
That is why I said when Verizon first started their LTE upgrade that they had to go to LTE and fast.  Their 3G network was slow as EVDO just was not going to cut it whereas AT&T had 7.2Mbps or higher on their 3G network.  Future 3G upgrades would allow faster speeds; Verizon couldn't do 3G upgrades.  AT&T could afford to wait and let Verizon be the beta tester for LTE.

Which ones? The OpenSignal data? I can ask them.

Re: 2x20MHz
What I would be interested in is knowing what party conducted the drive test, what the routes look like, and what devices were utilized to yield these maket downlink data rates just out of curiosity

Re: 2x20MHz
Well, we don't really know for dead sure when any of the US carriers will be ready to launch VoLTE. I could see even the vague stated timelines slipping.

Verizon is definitely ahead on 2x20MHz though.

Re: 2x20MHz
Fair, but they're still at the same spot on refarming spectrum and launching VoLTE. I switched to Verizon awhile back for LTE, but once AT&T launched in Chicago, the service was better, so I switched back. Wonder if there are many people who did the same.

Re: 2x20MHz
Well they've been growing their subscriber base faster and have more subs on LTE devices. I suspect they would see that as a win.

Re: 2x20MHz
True. AT&T closed the coverage gap on Verizon faster than I thought. I wonder if the headstart really helped Verizon out all that much, given some of the growing pains.

Re: 2x20MHz
2x20MHz channel deplymentsfor Verizon could change that dynamic though.
