    BUT we have no phones to test I guess we can discuss why AT&T is going to use only mm wave freq in the s10 5g and sub6 in the note 10 5g? I mean they have available the right Qualcomm chip x55+ AND even sprint and T-Mobile’s s10 5g I believe will be able to use ones low band and ones mid band !! I mean come on SAMSUNG/AT&T!! I’m just speculating here but could they already be set up to use both but just turned on later on? Excuse me I’m new at this lol. Yes I know 5g is very limited but damn it I live in a 5g city and I can’t even get a clear answer exactly where in Raleigh it is setup!! I call AT&T and they think I’m talking about 5ge!! Ugh!! ps Raleigh is also suppose to have 5ge but at what speeds because all I get is around 20mbps dl... thanks for letting me rant. Please contribute what you will

    The S10 has mm wave and sub6, the Note 10 seems to have only sub6. But remember, mm wave is very short distance. If you can't see the antenna, you can't use the signal from that tower. N257-N261 are in the 24-40GHz range - pretty much line of sight. So even if they covered downtown Raleigh, or RDU or some other small area, that's lot of towers for a little coverage - for a band mainly intended for use by IoT devices, not cellphones.

    It's probably just a bit past the design concept stage at this point. (How many machines will be talking to others?)

    Yeah I get that A LOT of things such as walls, trees, rain, our bodies if blocking the node etc can interfere with mm waves and can cover only small areas but it’s more than reliable for fast speeds which is awesome. The goal is to use mm waves, sub6 and mid bands (sprint only has this??) for 5g but why put both on the s10 5g and not the note 5g?? Do you know where in Raleigh they have placed 5g in? It’s probably not in Brier Creek.
