Verizon 700 MHz Band 13 LTE Signal Boosters

Verizon 700 MHz Band 13 LTE Signal Boosters

According to FCC, 700 MHz spectrum strip is available for public safety and commercial cellular communications. The megahertz spectrum in the band runs between 698MHz and 806MHz. It was largely released for the impending transition to digital TV. Its characteristics makes it a perfect choice for broadcast television channels  such as ease of penetrating walls and buildings while covering vast geographical locations without requiring massive infrastructure.

Auctioning of the 700 MHz licenses by FCC for commercial use took place in 2008. Since then, a number of cellular carriers have used it for broadband services for mobile devices from laptops, Tablets, Smartphones to other cellular devices. Verizon operates its 700 MHz frequency on Band 13. Signals can get weak deep inside buildings, underground concrete parking lots, etc. Scroll to bottom for list of cell phone signal boosters that cover this band and frequency.

Public safety allocation.

In 2012, the Spectrum Act was enacted on February 22nd directing FCC to allocate the 700 MHz D-Block falling within the 758-763MHz and 788-793MHz for use in public safety countrywide broadband network access. This was followed by the founding of FirstNet (First Responder Network Authority), an independent authority based in the United States' Department of Commerce. Apart from holding the reallocated D-Block and broadband safety spectrum licensing, FirstNet would deploy and operate the public safety spectrum across the nation.

Band 13.

Band 13 is generally a radio frequency falling close to the 750MHz. It has to be a single part of C-Block of 700MHz band's upper section. Upper 700MHz generally spans 746-788MHz with Verizon owning C-Block’s largest commercial section for 4G LTE network services. The Upper 700MHz band C-block was bought by Verizon in 2008 after Auction 73 was put up for auction by FCC. Within the LTE network point of view, Upper 700MHz C-block also owned by Verizon is also referred to as Band 13. D-Block, a smaller block also within Upper 700 MHz band not in use for public safety was put up for auction within Auction 73 but didn’t sell.

Just like lots of radio frequency bands out there for use in mobile phones, Band 13 is split or paired into two where one part is generally used for cell phones-to-tower transmissions and the other for tower-to-phones transmission. This works perfectly. While phone transmissions operate within the 746-757MHz, tower transmission takes place within the 776-787MHz.

700 MHz Band 13 LTE Carriers and MVNO's (sevice resellers) in United States.

  • Appalachian wireless for 4G frequencies (Band13 LTE, 700 MHz Block C).
  • Bluegrass Cellular 4G (Block C, 700 MHz Band-13).
  • Boost Mobile 4G (Block C, 700 MHz B-13).
  • Carolina West 4G (Block C, 700 MHz B 13).

700 MHz Band 13 LTE Carriers in Canada.

  • Bell Mobility 4G (700 MHz, B13 LTE and LTE Advanced).
  • Northern Tel (Bel Aliant) 4G (700 MHz, Band 13 LTE and LTE Advanced).
  • Public Mobile 4G (700 MHz, B-13 LTE and LTE Advanced).
  • Telus Mobility (700 MHz, Band 13 LTE and LTE Advanced).

In Canada, the 700MHz spectrum was the country's top quality cellular frequency ever auctioned at the time (2014). It was heralded for its ability to spread over longer distances. It doesn't need many cellular towers and able to penetrate elevators, underground parking lots and walls and buildings. Auction raised $5.27 billion for the Canadian government and eight Carriers took away 97 of the licenses. These include Rogers, Bell, Telus, MTS, SaskTel, Videotron, Bragg and Feenix.

700 MHz spectrum strengths.

One of the strengths of 700MHz is its ability to get through metal and concrete structure barriers that have always blocked high frequency reception. Even in parking lots, basements and concrete commercial towers the phone signal remains much better. Downloads, video streaming and other data processes remain consistent. As a result, 700MHz is arguably the most desirable spectrum globally. It makes international roaming partnerships possible. 700MHz LTE also mean next generation cellular devices will be made allowing the best possible Smartphones, Tablets and other mobile devices to enter the market and work consistently.

700MHz Band 13 LTE Signal Boosters.

To help you access the best 4G LTE network speeds wherever you're using the Band 13 LTE 700MHz, cell phone signal boosters are a perfect choice. They are powerful enough to boost existing cellular signal inside your home or commercial building and inside your vehicle or marine vessel such as ship or boat. Some of the best 700MHz Band-13 LTE cell phone signal amplifiers include the following.

  • I have to remember that cell phone signals are radio waves and that you don’t just use whatever area of the spectrum you feel like using whether it’s CB radios or areas for cell phone boosters. I’m going to hit up a friend who is big into radio and ask him what he thinks.

  • I think your question, Can anyone tell me why the wifi signal is poor at night? is one asked by many. I’ve wondered the same thing and this is what I’ve learned—it’s not the night itself as much as some of the activities going on at night. For example, more people are home using their wireless devices (and these can include things like cordless phones, garage door openers, baby monitors, etc.) which can interfere with the signal (even more if you live in an apartment building or college housing). Also, see how far your device is from your router. The further away you are, the more likely the signal will be weak. There are many factors to take into consideration when discussing the night.

  • Can anyone tell me why the wifi signal is poor at night? Nighttime doesn’t seem to be the right time when it comes to my wifi signals.

  • I don’t normally use T Mobile but a couple friends do so I want to let them know about T-Mobile Band 12 Boosters. The 4G LTE signal booster duo is something that I hope will solve their problems of dropped calls and lousy reception. I get so tired trying to make out what they’re saying and a cell phone booster is definitely needed by them. Hopefully I won’t have to explain things to them, but these things are so easy to install they shouldn’t have a problem.

  • This blog shows how much cell phone users are gobbling up bandwidth. It seems like cellular networks are struggling to keep up with providing the power that cell phone users need and want for their devices, whether it’s making calls without worrying about them dropping and downloading files quickly. I’m surprised this blog didn’t mention cell phone boosters as an option to make sure your cell phone doesn’t drop calls or suffer from slow speeds.
