Shoes2468: ...
even if 1800mhz is being deployed alongside 700mhz, 1800mhz will have a far smaller reach due to higher frequency, and I dont think all carriers will be deploying 1800mhz with 700mhz

That's what I've found in practice.  1800 seems to only go for a few kilometres at best, with poor penetration into buildings, whereas 700 can go for 20km or more, depending on the terrain.

It depends a lot on the Azimuth as well the site is set to for signal reach and you don't want 1800 extending for 20km

johnr: Band 28 700Mhz 4G is gettng deployed along side band 3 1800Mhz

Is this at all sites, or will some have 700 and some 1800?

Of the three 4G sites near here, two have 1800 only (near Russell & Opua) and one has 700 only (near Kawakawa).

I have noticed some rural sites with only 1800 are now getting 700 added as well, One was done yesterday and I think it was Opua (need to check my work email) the 700 was added but not unlocked yet

Edit: Sorry was Mahora
