  1. That may have been true in Norcal, but the SoCal...

    That may have been true in Norcal, but the SoCal area on former At&t Wireless truly sucked for many years. I used Siemens S46 GSM/TDMA, and in SoCal, Pacbell wireless/Cingular wad much better. I...

    That would depend on where you are. Typically, California hasn't had roaming agreements with the exception of USCC. TMobile is effectively the old Pacbell/Cingular network, which had a decent...

    I actually had TMobile Home Internet for a month (free trial), and had no issue with performance. I had typically hit 120Mbps down /50Mbps up. When I tried it in a different location, I was pushing...

    I don't see a huge benefit of mmWave in many areas. As long as 2.5 GHz is deployed in most places, it will give great throughput. MmWave is great in very dense areas only. 600MHz is just for...

    The part of this that currently rings true... TMobile's main customer base is primarily urban and destinations that are with coverage. TMobile service is not for those that live/work in many areas...

    Yes.. Many areas that I have pointed out to TMobile over the past few years (since the deployment of band12 appearance on their coverage map), in which TMobile used the 'bucketfill' tool in MS...

    This is true. There's a very small percentage of those that 'must' have the latest/greatest technology or shiny thing.. much of it for bragging rights or envy. Some want/need it for their job (i.e....

    Well... there's a bit more to 5G than 'Speedtest.net', but you have to be on the more .. R&D/Sales end than the consumer end. IoT / Home Internet are effectively the future, and this is yet another...

    I am very aware that current LTE can't CA B12 with B71.

    Would be more of an FTC complaint in advertising/marketing. I'm not too concerned, and this is one of the reasons that I'm 'waiting' on obtaining a 5G device. When the network is refarmed, and more...

    I'm not so sure about that. Much of T-Mobile's subscriber base is urban (as are most carriers) - but even more so for T-Mobile. Refarm of Sprint's PCS and B41 will give more than enough spectrum. ...

    I'm all for T-Mobile getting its 5G deployed, and I've actually been using T-Mobile as my primary for 5 years. The 5G kinda reminds me of being on AT&T when they were deploying 3G and LTE. Yes, it...

    They would have to build out a lot in NW Ontario. Much of TBaytel (Rogers) is still 3G only.

    By largest 5G network - it is referring to 5G nr radio - I agree. Reliable.. no.
    By actually having a useful 5G service ... and 'reliable', I call bull.
    When you have a 'new' (April 2020)...

    Urban/Suburban, I agree. True rural... I'm still doubtful that T-Mobile will deploy much more than paper thin for some time 'unless' Sprint customers start leaving in droves to VZW/AT&T for the...

    Locally.. T-Mobile and Sprint are both on the same Edison 'tower'. T-Mobile's panels point more in my direction than Sprint's do.

    For me, it will vary wildly, depending on sector and traffic. Eg. 300Mbps is rare, +200 Mbps in many areas (not too high traffic) is common. Some areas where there is high traffic, those +200Mbps...

    Stealing Cisco gear... Good luck. Any legit business would have no support from Cisco on grey market gear. All the gear would have serial numbers and code embedded in firmware.
    As others stated....

    On the showing B71 weaker than B12, I can show that B12 was better than B71, but I'm also comparing 10MHz of B71 to 5MHz of B12... So not all things are equal. On a similar note, I can get service...

    Looks like it shows roaming in some of that area on TMobiles updated map. If I had to guess.. Id say that the few counties in the areas around Clare, Midland and a bit north have roaming. 166375

    I'm not typically referring to the locals (in places like Cambria, CA ~= 6,000), however there are a few things as you do correctly mention.
    Like an RV community - they are typically not in the...

    I agree.. Some of these rural/tourist areas - "IF" T-Mobile wants these customers, will build, or may have to deal w/o service. As you state - prepaid will work for some.
