    It’s not that it will cause problems, it’s that it won’t fix problems like bad indoor reception. And depending how long it takes some tv stations to transition off that band, a national rollout may take a while.

    Rollout is actually quicker than you think. There was a thread on this a while back, OP, this may be a good read.

    There won't be any problems if you don't care about Band 71/the future of better indoor coverage. Existing coverage will still be around, but they are rolling out fast, and have been rolling out.

    I’m on T-mobile and I plan to buy an X. Band 71 will not go live here in LA until 2019 so I’ll keep the X for 2 years then upgrade in 2019. Check out this spectrum map.
