I wonder also if Trump is voted out in November if the pressure will come off the Chinese vendors.

 

 

Trump will still be President until 20th January (Inauguration Day), come what may.

 

I suspect that any replacement (Biden or Pence?) will have more important things on their plate.
As an example, if it's Biden, he'll have to get all the necessary Cabinet-level posts filled and approved by the Senate. Accordingly, I can't see any change actually coming into effect until at least Q2 2021

What frequency band are they using? N78 aka 3.5GHz?

Cause the GIS Geek website says every site that has Band 7 LTE is 4G/5G and it cracks me up cause I know that Spark has LTE on 2.6GHz

N78 yes.

 

 

 

i think @stubbed might need to update though :)

 

 

 

He put 4/5G on 2.6 as that's what was being used in the FWA trial in southland.

You rang? :) I do need to spend some time on classification of 5G, it's going to get complex. I've just made some changes now:

 

  • 2600mhz Spark is only classified as 4G/LTE
  • 3500mhz Spark is now classified as 5G

Realise N78 band isn't just 3500mhz, it's more of a grouping atm.

 

Site will update in a bit.

Yeah noticed that all Spark Band 7 is now showing as 4G LTE and Band 71 as 5G

See the example below from Parmy

Yep that's to be expected, treat 3500mhz Spark as N78.

 

It's impossible to classify every site correctly based on RSM data - have to make assumptions based on what people know. As @hio77 mentioned, there was 5G on 2600mhz initially, hence that classification.

I've been avoiding having special rules for particular licences due to the overhead. It's still on my list to have some way to dispute/correct information on a per location level.
