Re: Is there much point doing 5G on 600MHz though? Your explanation seems entirely correct as to why T-Moible may be heading down the road getting some traction "from 5G by using a mixture of mmWave, mid-band, and low-band spectrum. But it will be interesting to watch as they depart from the competitors' plans of using the band spectrum.

Re: Is there much point doing 5G on 600MHz though? Right, and the WRC has 600MHz as one of its 5G low band options right?

Re: Is there much point doing 5G on 600MHz though? You need low band for many of the 5G use-cases, even if it's ultimately used primarily for signalling, or extended range uplink, or IoT, rather than throughput. The mobile operator business is first and foremost about coverage -- so, yes, there is a point to doing this.

With mullti-connectivity, you could also use low-band LTE for control-plane, and migrate LTE to 5G over time, if you don't have fresh low band spectrum available right now.

In terms of end-user throughput, you are right that it is determined primarily by the size of the channel, so you wouldn't expect huge gains on LTE. Even so there's a quite a bit "under the hood" that may improve the user-experience (e.g. in terms of latency, connection set-up times).

Re: Like this CEO I think late 2018 *may* be a little optimistic on their part, we'll see....

Re: Like this CEO Looking forward the MOBILE 5G service from AT&T. Hope it will be more than a wireless CPE placed inside/outside the room :)

Re: Like this CEO Well AT&T said it's targeting initial mobile 5G services for late 2018, Verizon has said 2020.

Like this CEO It may be bombastic from T-Mobile CEO, however the 5G business case (fixed wireless DSL) from other operators is really not a promising one, it use 3.5GHz or mm wave band, no idea how could they get profit and till when...

Re: Is there much point doing 5G on 600MHz though? Which will still be useful for the end user of course.

Re: Is there much point doing 5G on 600MHz though? That is true.  LTE Advanced is asymptotically approaching Shannon's Limit in terms of spectral efficiency, and there is nothing magic about 5G New Radio in comparison.  Capacity increases in 5G as seen by a particular end-user device will mainly come from bigger (bonded) channels and more beamforming.
