    Verizon prepaid has *most* of Verizon's postpaid extended and roaming coverage. Visible has none. Verizon prepaid's coverage map actually shows MORE coverage than postpaid in a couple of locations,...

    They have 3 carriers. It's not working so well for them with less competition.



    It's not like T-Mobile is just going to stop competing if Sprint files bankruptcy. That's sort of... bizarre....

    Sprint is uniquely positioned to roll out 5G in a less capital intensive way than the other carriers over the entirety of major metro markets on their n41 spectrum.



    That's ONE place, and there...

    There are plenty of dead spots in cities. Big, old buildings that block signal. Also, the networks in NYC are so heavily densified that they don't reach the tops of some large apartment and office...

    Why would the license tell them what they have to deploy? The CLR carriers shut off AMPS years ago. AT&T has HSPA+ shut down on the PCS band in some areas, as they have just one single block on the...

    AT&T blocks it on the Moto G6, at least as of several months ago. It will work for maybe a minute, or if you place a call in that minute, it will stay on until you end the call, and then it goes back...

    We have 2 going on 3 lines on MSV 10GB that was doubled to 20GB plus 1GB Canada roaming on each line. You can't beat that today, but not everyone had/has as good of a grandfathered plan.

    Maybe I'm the exception to the rule, but I had a good experience. I had a cracked engine block that was leaking due to a bad casting, and they basically rebuilt my whole engine with a new block, and...

    Microcells shouldn't be necessary in the first place, as Wi-Fi calling is the better solution, unfortunately Wi-Fi calling doesn't actually work very well, at least in my experience, as I use it...

    Much of the country has ridiculous above ground wiring. Not only is a lot of it above ground, but it's poorly done, it's been sloppily added on to over the years, and has layers upon layers of cruft...

    How so? I have a 2007 Civic, and it was class leading at the time, but I will say that looking at the new Hondas, they've just barely kept up with the competition, and now Subaru seems to be the...

    Yeah, it depends on the market. I would think it would be cheaper in the long run to co-locate, but in some markets each carrier seems to have their own towers on their own grid spacing. I'm not sure...

    T-Mobile is a much smaller carrier. Other carriers have also been more creative in putting a spectrum portfolio together. Not saying Verizon should have kept the 700A block, but they did sell that,...

    I mean I'd be perfectly happy taking an MSA/F/P plan that's equivalent to what I have on MSV. The problem is, their current MSP plan is worse for multiple lines (it's pretty good for one). Or they...

    Look at Canada for what less competition does to a market. They have 3 carriers and absurdly high prices. A combined T-Sprint would take a lot of pressure off of VZ and T, and would probably gain...
