    Dark haired female talking to people on the street to guess which is faster in NYC, Verizon 4G or T-Mobile 5G...

    Why would anyone stop and chat with a opioid addict? :dunno:

    Am I missing opioid addiction signals? Not that I am a judge of woman flesh, but all I see is a mousy-looking gal with a large beak and fingerless gloves with an annoying voice.

    I would much rather see the old Verizon girl, who was a babe.

    After hearing her voice, I'm considering becoming an opioid addict, just to ease the pain.

    Verizon is the name change from GTE which was the name change from General Telephone and Telegraph. The name keeps getting changed so that people don't discuss for years why Verizon sucks. Around 1979, I call the then General Telephone office because once again, the phones are on the blink. The General Telephone person asks where I am located. I tell him if he walks out the back door, looks south in the alley, I am in the window of the white building on the second floor waving towards the back of the General Telephone building.:drool:

    If that woman came up to me on the street, I would respond to her either in Japanese or French to get rid of her. Who put the "ug" in ugly?

    I don't know, Rush seemed to make a career out of it.

    IF my limited understanding is correct. 4g is less data then 5g?

    So it’s like a 4mp picture vs a 5 mp. The 4 would load faster then the 5. But the 5 would be clearer, more accurate.....
    So like 90% of compare commercials. It’s rigged to company paying for it.
    Compare 4g to 4g, 5g to 5g. In variety of areas.
    I suspect near a V tower it would work better then near competition tower...

    I thought the 5g antenna had to be very close to be effective. Like outside on the lamp post.

    That's what I have read too. The positive side is that the antennas are the size of a briefcase. Just got to put them everywhere. That's the hold up.

    The difference is how T-mobile rolled out 5g vs the way Verizon is doing it. It is kinda like the 2.4 GHz vs 5 GHz wireless in your home. The 2.4 Ghz band carries data slower, but has further reach. The 5 GHz band can support faster speeds, but the reach isn't as far. Same thing with cellular 5G. Tmobile used the low end of the spectrum so that the signal propagates further, but the data speeds are slower. Vz uses the higher end of the 5G spectrum and has faster speeds, but you have to be very close to the antennae. This is why Tmobile 5G is slower than Verizon 4G in that particular spot. What would be interesting to know is if the Tmobile 5G, even though slower, can reach more of rural America who may not get 4G today... like my deer lease.

    I just know my 3g phone was not working in CO. It kept changing time zones. So I had to get smart phone. That is huge. I maybe use 8% of what it can do.

    What? No. At least not exactly.

    Verizon is the corporate descendent of Bell Atlantic after it merged with Nynex. That combination bought GTE. So it's remains are in there, bug it wasn't the dominant player I the final combined company.

    Maybe they’re hoping she drops her foil and there’s just enough residue on there to smoke
