Re: New Moto G 4G

What rot.

In reply to a post by mlmclaren:
3's 4G is always rubbish compared too EE..

Not always, I saw seriously fast speeds before on 3's 4G when it first turned on a month or so ago.

For a start EE broadcast at a higher Frequency so have more space for bandwidth where 3 only broadcasts at 800mhz like O2 who when I used them for 4G was rubbish compared to EE too...

Nope, EE and 3 are both using 1800mhz today. EE has 800 and 2600 licences, 3 has 800 licence and has started rolling this out as. Those with 1800 means their networks can be used by the original iPhone 5.

I havn't seen many if any Vodafone 4G tests, I know Vodafone uses 2600mhz for 4G so could be pretty impressive for bandwidth, but they also use 800mhz too so hard to determine where 2600/800mhz areas are.

Voda and O2 are currently rolling out 800mhz only, O2 has nothing else. Voda has 2600 licence but no info.

I know 3 people who are using the Moto G 3G and I'm well impressed, might get myself one in couple of months to replace iPhone 4S, depends on apples announcement for iPhone 6...

The 4G is only around £50 more and has a micro-SD slot, which for me was important for an Android device.

Nope, EE and 3 are both using 1800mhz today only. EE has 800 and 2600 licences, 3 has 800 licence but neither have launched those yet. 1800 means their networks can be used by the original iPhone 5.

AFAIK 1800mhz 4G on Three hasn't been activated yet, though I was aware they where being alowwed access to it via EE's network, also iPhone 5 currently dont' work with any other 4G networks aparts from EE.... Though this woill cange once 1800mhz is activated on Three.

I havn't seen many if any Vodafone 4G tests, I know Vodafone uses 2600mhz for 4G so could be pretty impressive for bandwidth, but they also use 800mhz too so hard to determine where 2600/800mhz areas are.

Voda and O2 are currently rolling out 800mhz only, but Voda has 2600mhz as well but nobody has reported any seen yet.

As I said then!!

My personal phone is a 5s on EE which works on all freqs. My other phone (used for work) is an original 5 and I put a 3 PAYG SIM into it to test and I get 4G/LTE signal from my local mast. It shows in the Field Test mode that this is Band 3, which is 1800mhz. Just as it shows on my 5s in field test mode.

3 and EE are not sharing 4G other than the physical mast as I understand it, they have separate equipment cabinets and backhaul. Only 3G is shared under the MBNL contract.

The Moto G is a brilliant bit of kit, its just not very good at technical diagnostics, doesn't show the LTE status, such as frequency band or channel width which I would like to see. :-/

Farnborough & Aldershot, north east Hampshire on the Surrey border.

I read the Moto G 4G is Cat 3 device, same as iPhone 5 and 5s, and the Galaxy S3 LTE, and I think the S4 - which is upto 100Mbps downlink in perfect conditions. Highest speed I've seen is 30Mbps downlink. Generally getting about 10Mbps now. Highest seen on EE 4G at Heathrow was 65 Mbps.

The UK/European spec Moto G 4G supports 800, 1800 and 2600 - known as bands 20, 3 and 7 in LTE speak.
