    It's the opposite, at least last time I checked about a year ago - it used to be 2G/3G but they shut down 2G (EDGE) roaming in MT, and you can ONLY roam on 3G. AT&T's network refuses to allow...

    UK??? Have they ever BEEN here? UK mobile networks are rubbish. I miss the great mobile reliability I had in the US. Sure, peak speeds are higher here... but coverage and reliability are awful.

    Using a Nexus 5X, so I don't know bands, but the LTE was MUCH stronger than the UMTS, so I'm assuming it's band 12 LTE and band 4 UMTS. UMTS coverage was awful, and data barely worked. LTE coverage...

    Well, I'm coming back a few months later to say outright, I was wrong. I just returned from three weeks in Montana, and I can say definitively it is obvious T-Mobile is in it to win it in Missoula,...

    That's totally untrue, T-Mobile absolutely compresses their voice. Uncompressed voice would be a ridiculous waste of bandwidth, bandwidth not even LTE has.

    The question is only how much it's...

    It was announced. It'll never be "complete" as networks constantly change. But they considered it good enough to announce. Well I'm in Missoula right now and have been for a few days - the coverage...

    Of course it's speculation. But speculation based on observable evidence is what we do as humans. Could I be proven wrong? I hope I am. But the evidence doesn't indicate T-Mobile entering the Montana...

    Given John announced the Missoula and Kalispell launch today, I'd say it wasn't too early at all. I'm not there, anymore, sadly - but talking to friends I have a decent idea what's built. I'll be...

    I don't think that's ever been the claim in Montana... it's clear that this is a network being built to quickly provide a minimal level of service to a very large geographic area, density be darned.

    Line of sight is a terrible term to use. Clear path is a better term (research RF propagation) and there certainly is not a clear path from that site to the U of M or to downtown, and it is several...

    No idea, the UMTS is 850. It's the old Alltel licence (the Verizon shown that overlaps with their region is Verizon's old Alltel area they got to keep - and I will note that I was wrong when I said...

    That coverage is Nemont and it's a "special" arrangement - Alltel used to cover the whole area. Verizon got half and AT&T got half. AT&T sold their half to Nemont last year and shut down their...

    Well, they've promised EOY. I'll be in MT in early Nov. I was hoping it'd be lit up by then, but I'm really doubting it, LOL.

    They basically have to put in more coverage to even accomplish their...

    Maybe, maybe not - it depends on their plans. Do they REALLY want to sell service in MT? I'm not convinced. Remember, T-Mobile has been in Montana before, and pulled out. Though that was a different...

    I can confirm that AT&T sold their network in northwest Montana to Nemont, in exchange for spectrum in the Dakotas. Shame on you AT&T, shame.
