On my old S4 with one of the network apps I found it would tell me how many Mhz of spectrum the LTE signal I was connected to was using on the downlink.

For instance 10Mhz on the 10X10 AT&T network.

I found a similiar sounding app on the play store called Nexus 5 field test, it gives me information on the LTE connection but not the amount of Mhz being utilized.

Is it possible to get this information with a Nexus 5? I've since switched to T-mobile and I know they use different sizes depending on how much frequency they have in that area. For instance 5x5,10x10 and now with MetroPCS spectrum they are starting to deploy 15x15 or 20x20.

It's not a big deal, I get great speeds on T-mobile, I'm just curious, if anyone can help it would be appreciated.
Thanks,

Thanks,

Bump on the same question. I can't seem to find an app that shows me the channel spectrum. T-Mobile has been rolling out 10x10 in my area lately, and I'm quite curious to see that I'm actually on...
