Now that we have our first official Band 14 device (Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+), let's see who can spot band 14 first!

Allen, KY and Garrett, KY towers here in Floyd County, Kentucky are getting B14. I have confirmed this with a few sources. I am not sure as to why those locations are receiving it when other areas in eastern Kentucky desperate need 700 MHz (our lowest right now is B5 850 MHz). Pikeville is so congested and indoor coverage is so poor it's useless downtown. I am hoping B14 fixes this.

Anyways, anyone else have any information on B14? What the equipment will look like?

Are we even sure consumers will have access to band 14?

Yes, as far as I know first responders just get priority.

I've seen AT&T adding 700 MHz type panels to sites in Craig and Delaware County, OK. Mind you, neither of these counties have any low band spectrum. Definitely looks like they're starting deployments here.

According to a North Carolina Firstnet representative, only first responders will have access to band 14.

Lately I've been hearing similar. Not sure what's going on since they used to claim the public would be able to use it as long as priority to responders was given.

It's also disappointed to hear them say that b14 won't be as widespread as I originally thought.

Just read where it sounds like they won't harden everything, wonder what % of sites and resources will be hardened?

Already debates on what entails public safety grade
