Who told you they plan to phase out the 1800Mhz band? They have no such plans, in fact they only started using their share of the 850Mhz band to secure their turf else Digicel would have had obtained all of it. If they had plans of phasing out the 1800Mhz band they would start by phasing out dual band phones with 900/1800. Make no mistake, TSTT is rich, even though it might make more economical sense to sell out the 1800Mhz band, they won't because they could sustain it financially. Even though they cried to the media that they had financial problems that was all a lie to fire the useless people from the company. How could they have been in financial trouble when every 2 days you was hearing ads about bmobile sponsored fetes? I know those things cost plenty and a real company with financial problems would not spend loads of cash for parties.

Also the 1900Mhz band sucks, it only works good in flat city areas. HTC tytn rocks, that is a real bess phone, buy d damn thing, LoL. I think they often cut out the 850 band to add in UMTS support but clearly we are a long way from UMTS so screw that and get the one with the 850 band support. HTC is really good.



TSTT themselves said in a news release a while back (I remember in one of those Express articles) that they were planning on phasing out 1800 and using 1900 to complement the 850 band...

If you look at the specs on the low-end (dual-band) phones available on the bmobile online shop, ALL of them are 850/1900 band... no 1800... which means that they are trying to move all their subscribers to 850... and when they launch the 1900 band, the phones will be capable...

I think that this is all part of their plan to maximize the frequencies in their war chest in that some services will be reassigned.TATT issues a directive sometime last year for a re-assignment of frequencies.

I know this is necroposting a bit, but I was just wondering...and this had some relevant info, but I want to be sure about this first:

I need to implement a cell repeater kit, and would want to make sure that the frequencies that it'll relay are applicable for TSTT and Digicel GSM bands.

According to what I had seen in here, a kit relaying 850 & 1900 MHz would be sufficient, correct? Or would I have to consider any other frequencies?

TSTT uses 850/1800, and from what I heard a while back, they were have plans to switch their 1800 band to 1900, if they haven't done it already.

Digicel uses 850/1900.

Thanks, well then I assume a repeater using 850/1900 should suffice then, because it's not easy to locate repeaters that handle the 1800MHz band. So if anyone knows for sure as to whether TSTT have switched to 1900, that will be a huge help...

That switch would give TSTT greater coverage and I may then consider having one phone rather than two... :lol:
