the actual radio itself is an sdr. it doesn't care what mode you use. the baseband software is what limits certain modes to certain bands, and it can be configured for other lte bands than just band 25.

I give up trying to convince you, you will find out as soon as the 800 SMR lte is up . I guess working with and in cell phone companies for last several years means I don't know anything. :P

sprints LTE network is just awful in chicagoland. its not very fast at all. i have used ATT LTE, one of my buddies has verizon LTE, another buddy has tmoble hspa+. we all work for a company that has a number of stores in chicagoland and greater suburbs. and ATT polls highest for overall speeds (when using hspa+ or LTE), verizon has great coverage (doesn't seem like as much as att) tmobile has kick butt hspa+, and sprint is not the best, but its still not terrible. I got sprint because I use a just insane amount of data. and one thing i did want to point out in this thread is that current LTE networks in america are advanced 3g networks still. they arent true 4g, and i despise sprint for advertising 4g with wimax when it came out. LTE advanced is the only true 4g network, and as the US starts upgrading to that we will see just absolutely mind boggling data speeds no matter what carrier you are on provided you have coverage.

TLDR: My HTC One has LTE, so thats what i get. I would go device over network any day of the week.

which one? i'm not seeing anything about gsm in any of the test reports.

edit: looks like that page is from the manual... from http://www.droid-life.com/2011/08/07...-bottom-shots/:

We should also point out that the manual appears to be a bunch of filler pulled from previous devices,

it wasnt from the manual where i pulled it, it was one of the other reports, looking for it now.

Many handsets do technically support GSM 900/1900 and band 1 W-CDMA 2100+1900.

cant find it again, but it is in there somewhere

OK just a quick comprehension check (for me):
Wimax has been dropped and all Wimax towers will soon be converted to LTE. Is this correct?

Sprint currently uses the 1900 MHz freq for LTE, and the One uses that. Can anybody comment as to how much progress the rollout of 1900 LTE has made?

Sprint is just starting to roll out 800 LTE, which offers better signal strength and building penetration. However, the One will not be able to use this band, ever, because of the hardware. Widespread 800 LTE coverage isn't expected until most of our contracts are up, so this shouldn't matter. Is this correct?

I've heard of Sprint's upcoming "tri-band" devices. These are supposed to use 800, 1900 and 2500 MHz frequencies for LTE. Does that mean our phones will be significantly outdated by the end of this year?

Please excuse my ignorance.
