    There would be only one reason for this, and any carrier using the same database will bring it up the same way.

    The merger with Sprint is what gave TMO those mid band 5g bands.

    Without Sprint n41, T-Mobile would not have had any mid band 5g.

    The thing is, there never was truly unlimited wireless data.

    They all had some sort of cap.

    VZW got in trouble once for charging overages on unlimited plans if users went over 50 gb.

    This is also valid as well. T-Mobile may even cut the new TracFone a better deal, with the understanding it might not get used and may get inflated to compensate for "more expensive" access.

    This is also a valid point.

    Cell carriers only use the zip code to identify coverage, and may claim an area has great coverage if at least 50% of that area has any coverage.
