T-mobile another stupid move, it drives customers out; the coverage becomes smaller and smaller, then it eventually dead!
Honestly i rarely if ever hit GPRS anymore, and usually have 3G in 99.9% of the rural parts of AZ i go to now, and the EDGE is quite usable wherever i've had to use it.
I cant wait for the PCS reband here in Phoenix, as i really want to use an iPhone again, but refuse to leave T-Mobile as my primary carrier.

You didn't read the thread right. They aren't shutting it off but minimizing it so they can upgrade to 3g.

I support the right to keep and arm bears.
Even Sprint is going to have their entire footprint in LTE by the end of 2013. There's no doubt about it: T-Mobile is the furthest behind in upgrading their network.
All they need is the iPhone

I will bet money on the fact that Verizon will not meet their set goal in LTE coverage and if they do it will be patchy coverage like it is now and VZ LTE does not exceed T-Mobile's HSPA+ footprint nor the regular 3G footprint. In the markets it has launched in, coverage is not 100% either.

Coverage will expand to 100 million LTE pops for the first half of 2013, with the second half of 2013 expanding to 200 million POPs covered. Release 10 LTE (2×10, 2×20) will be better performing than all other competitors.

There is no reason for Verizon not to meet their goal, unlike the other companies here they actually have the will and resources to complete their goal..
All the nay sayer's said they wouldn't have half the coverage they do right now. Right now their LTE still put's T-Mobile's 3G footprint to shame and is still expanding rapidly.
