    BYOD and GSM use Tmo LTE (310-260) only CDMA/LTE use 311-660 from now on

    I know you have repeated this about a bajillion times :p

    So I am curious is this a hard rule? I know for some places that have a good metro LTE market but no Tmo LTE it will be a step back, Not necessarily in terms of speed because if there is tmo hspa+ 42 that can get faster then most metro lte I have seen. But in terms of upload, and latency.

    I really thought they would identify them on the sim, like tmo mvno's :mad:

    Right on that was the other part of the question thanks sir :D gman at least I help you make your 2000 post lol
    Either way I think we will be fine since tmobile lte should be as good as metro at least for us in Florida

    They could just broadcast 310-260 from those but they do it through the APN which the metro LTE APN on CDMA/LTE phones have 311-660.

    But by the end of the year HSPA & LTE should have roughly the same coverage.

    The advantage I see with this is that we should pick up signal in places were metro had none as an example the outer everglades area

    So byod uses tmob GSM. When cdma shuts down, will mpcs be using everything tmob? Lte, gsm, hspa, etc....
