It's not worth even using it... Without 850MHz Telecom simply will not perform well.

our rural tower is shown as dual carrier.
a telecom guy said that meant that it worked on both the 850 and 2100. he said the 2100 carried more data and faster down load but because i was 7 kilometers away the signal would not reach me

If it's a rural site 2100MHz won't be used. The only time 2100MHz is really used is for urban infill since it has a very limited coverage area. You'll find that site will only be 850MHz dual carrier.

Dual carrier (Wikipedia) doesn't bond 2100MHz and 850MHz, it bonds 2 of the same channel on a supported device to give you (up to) 42mbit down, 5mbit up.

The simple answer to that? There isn't one. There are literally hundreds of variables that will determine this.

 More importantly there is also the issue of how far the 2100MHz signal from your phone will travel which is far more important as it's 1/10th the power and won't travel anywhere near the distance.

That would be dual band not dual carrier

on the telecom web site on coverage it shows our tower as dual carrier, but it is hard to zoom in enough to really tell. it is the mnt burnett in golden bay

dual carrier means, if you have a device that supports it, you can get higher bandwidth as it uses two bonded channels for downstream data throughput. It doesn't increase coverage, and doesn't help you if your device isn't DC-capable.

If you want to use Telecom then you have to have a 850 MHz device. You shouldn't even think of 2100 MHz.

As explained above, Dual Carrier is not using both bands, but using two of the same channel.

If you are planning on Vodafone, then you will have to find a 900 MHz device to take advantage of new upgrades on their network.
