Don't encourage them! LOLSays phased transition is ahead of schedule.
I'm not sure who would buy. At 600 MHz, the wavelength is longer than the phone, so the antenna winds up being electrically short, harming performance. To go lower in frequency would only worsen that problem. Verizon and Sprint sat out the 600 MHz auction, T-Mobile has indicated they would not buy anything else below channel 37, and AT&T participated but then won the FirstNet contract and decided it didn't need the 600 MHz spectrum after all--sold what little it won to a speculator type group.Don't encourage them! LOL
We can't afford to have them get even more greedy, and sell off even more spectrum.
I'm all about the Physics of antennas, but does your wavelength concern apply to the fractal antennas phones are using today?At 600 MHz, the wavelength is longer than the phone, so the antenna winds up being electrically short, harming performance.
