    Just for the record and before anyone tries putting words in my mouth, I never said that T-Mobile would raise rates. They might actually offer lower rates. It's possible (in fact, it may be the more...

    (Emphasis added)
    So, all T-Mobile has to do is offer a plan that provides a marginal increase in data and then they'll be free to discontinue legacy rates and raise new rates to whatever they want. ...

    My only source of data on that would be CellMapper and they have not yet differentiated CSpire's coverage by band.

    BTW, also based on T-Mobile's history, I believe that I will be able to keep my 2/$60 55+ plan for a very long time. They let me keep a bizarre old DigiPH PCS plan for something like 16 years before...

    The difference between Americans and many other cultures is that Americans believe that 100 years is a long time, while Europeans (for instance) believe that 100 miles is a long distance. I was just...

    It was 3/18/2008. The TV stations repacked about 2010. Between about 2000 and 2010 BellSouth/AT&T provided pretty good coverage in 2/3 of Mississippi using just mid-band, just as Viaero provided...

    For some Sprint customers, loss of voice roaming on Verizon may be a deal killer. Same thing may be true for Sprint customers in Mississippi, where Sprint has been able to roam CSpire for both voice...

    Neither did AT&T (BellSouth). Until AT&T bought 700 MHz they covered 2/3 of Mississippi with only mid-band licenses and their coverage was competitive with CSpire (Cellular South) and Verizon.

    You have to read what J.L. says with a great deal of care. If you go to a hotel and ask for their "best" rate, you won't get the same deal as if you ask for their "lowest" rate. A "better rate plan"...

    T-Mobile may have met all FCC coverage requirements but they have also left many places maddeningly uncovered, despite having licenses to cover those areas. Everyone who's used T-Mobile can provide...

    I very seldom see bands 12 or 71 on my Moto G7 power, even when I'm very near a known site. When it does flash by, it's normally not-fully-identified. This probably has something to do with the...

    Do any current phones support n77/n78? I think these bands will be important for AT&T's and Verizon's 5G services. Unless having 5G was urgent today, I might wait for that. Assuming one keeps phones...

    Mostly but the point was more that the distinctions between carriers will be very fine.


    I remember when all their "unlimited" plans got capped and they came out with new, higher-priced,...

    Yes, but they won't be able to (the market won't allow it) until their coverage is equal to the other carriers.

    At some point it becomes a Ford vs Chevy vs Dodge pickup truck argument. Yes,...

    Can someone please explain what the frack Trump has to do with this. Anyone who's been around more than 6 months knows that there is no love loss between T-Mobile and Trump. J.L. and Trump even got...

    Often times the problem isn't the battery, it's the apps. When my wife complains about the battery life on her phone, my response is, "Are you still using Facebook Messenger?" I'm sure that if we...

    This is why I'd like to see Sprint's band-41 LTE sites undergo a transition from Sprint, to shared, to T-Mobile. Accommodating a lot of new customers on T-Mobile's urban networks is going to put a...

    I don't know about the "promo" but this is what T-Mobile says about "One Plus":

    So, you get free ~265 kbps data when roaming abroad. You can pay extra to get ~500 kpbs but that's (AFAIK) all...

    OK, assuming you're on a current postpaid plan (you didn't say), free roaming data runs about 128 kbps. Maybe enough to stream music but certainly not enough to stream YouTube. You can check e-mail,...

    If you're so sure of that, why don't you appeal Judge Marrero's decision. After all, you're certain to be vindicated by the appeals panel.

    Amen. There's been a quantum shift. Get used to it. T-Mobile now has low, mid and high band spectrum plus mmWave. Not deprived any more.
