At stake is one of Verizon's big bets to alleviate a coming spectrum crunch that could slow its wireless network in many parts of the country After opting out of last year's federal airwave auction in the 600 MHz band, Verizon is looking for other ways to offer customers more bandwidth. The Irving test is focused on a new segment of airwaves being opened to the wireless market in the 3.5 GHz band and known as Citizens Broadband Radio Service, or CBRS for short. http://fortune.com/2018/04/09/verizon-navy-cbrs-unlimited-data/ -- Bill Horne (Remove QRM from my email address to write to me directly) ------------------------------ Message-ID: <85d83df1-8211-40c3-9ecc-935ccb589ee1@googlegroups.com> Date: Tue, 10 Apr 2018 10:18:50 -0700 (PDT) From: HAncock4 <withheld@invalid.telecom-digest.org> Subject: Re: History--Bell "Dew Line" defense network On Monday, April 9, 2018 at 9:08:25 PM UTC-4, Arnie Goetchius wrote: > Many thanks for posting the links.

Donna Jenkins signed up for Verizon's Beyond Unlimited plan. She could use as many gigabytes as she wanted for the same price, but she didn't realize that when she reached 15 gigabytes, the speed of her service would drop. https://www.wsoctv.com/news/customer-claims-popular-verizon-plan-is-misleading/729758031 -- Bill Horne (Remove QRM from my email address to write to me directly) ------------------------------ ********************************************* End of telecom Digest Wed, 11 Apr 2018
