band 8 900 MHz - Operators

band 8 900 MHz, 880-915 MHz and 925-960 MHz, FDD LTE, 35 MHz

Why it is better not use band 8 for LTE at the moment
  1. Not so strong ecosystem at the moment 2012.09. 
  2. Operators still need GSM900 as a fallback, because to often 3G coverage is not enough. 
  3. Operators can allocate at least 10 MHz to 20 MHz which can be tought for them to do.
