    Thread [Q] Local cell tower is 850mhz, will it ever go 1900mhz automatically?

    I bought a cell repeater for the 850mhz range and it works great. I am on At&t and they also operate at 1900mhz. Will the local tower equipment automatically switch from time to time or is a tower only going to change when they change the antenna, etc?
