    Today when I was in staples in West Lebanon, NH I picked up US 41 on
    my old 1900 only t-mobile nokia. When I was in the Lebanon COOP
    across the street from Dartmouth-Hitchcock medical center I was able
    to get US 41 and US 89. Does anyone know what this are? I think this
    is the cingular section of the att+cingular roadrunner project but I
    am not sure. Does anyone know more than I do?

    US-89 is RCC, Rural Cellular Corp's. I guess they need more bandwidth
    than just the cellular A-band assignment. I found the MNC at the
    International Telecommunications Union site.

    US-41 (actually 310-410) is the new Cingular buildout that has been promised to
    be in place by the end of the year. They should be operating on one or both of
    the AT&T PCS licenses (it's a joint venture) to hear that at least parts of the
    system are now operational. If you check their coverage map you'll see the
    ambitious buildout they are planning.

    I'm surprised that RCC has GSM running already. The don't have any PCS licenses
    so it has to be an overlay of the Cellular-A license. That's good as there is
    no way GSM is going to make it in northern NE without 800 MHz coverage.

    My first thought was the same, we're seeing RCC on Cellular-A. Gordon wrote
    that he was using his 1900 MHz only T-Mobile phone. Now I don't quite know
    what to think...

    I missed that important point It could be:

    Cingular is going to run with multiple network IDs (I'd expect to see AT&T's
    too)

    RCC now owns (or has an agreement to use) one of the other PCS licenses in the
    area. It's hard to keep track since they sometimes use other business names.
    Anyone know more about GST Wireless Communications (who own the PCS "E" band in
    the area)?
