    If you look at CellMapper, you'd believe that T-Mobile's coverage is better than Verizon's. Why? Well, there are thousands of T-Mobile users who are interested in knowing where they have service and...

    If you follow the T-Mobile support forum, you know that there are a lot of disappointed subscribers to T-Mobile's Home Internet service. I don't think T-Mobile is intending to run a "scam". I think...

    Odd. I'm using Sprint's network almost as much as T-Mobile. The "Sprint" tower is a little closer to my home than T-Mobile's. For months it's been just as likely that my phone will pick one as the...

    They do. The issue is that the amount of wind generation capacity alone that was offline in Texas exceeds the total generation capacity of the entire state of Mississippi, Arkansas or Louisiana. The...

    Keep in mind that T-Mobile is committed to using 100% "green" energy and Texas lost half of their windfarms. Maybe nasty, propane-burning backup generators don't fit with T-Mobile's "green" vision....

    In Mississippi AT&T UMTS roaming works in odd, almost random, places. It's not shown on the coverage map. This is an area SE of Jackson where I was able to roam AT&T.

    At one time T-Mobile had special agreements covering certain parts of particular carriers. For instance, after AT&T bought Corr Wireless, T-Mobile was able to roam AT&T in the Corr Wireless coverage...

    In Mississippi, where I live, CSpire holds the 700A licenses in all but two or three counties. That leaves only band 71 for low-band service. AFAIK, LTE's range is somewhat less than CDMA's, given...

    I'd like to see an effort to convert Sprint's rural CDMA coverage to T-Mobile LTE before they shut it down. Here in Mississippi there are places that Sprint's CDMA covers that neither Sprint's LTE...
