    Just cause DT says one thing, doesn't mean its true. They promised they wouldn't sell T-Mobile USA, but bam on March 20th, all heck broke loose.

    I bet they will take that money, and try to buy spectrum from another carrier.

    Notice how NYC is not part of the AWS package.

    T-Mobile can re-partition the spectrum for GSM/HSPA/LTE-A. All they need is 3 blocks of spectrum nationwide.

    How will T-Mobile take advantage of the UMTS roaming agreement from AT&T? Majority of T-Mobile's 3G phones do not have 1900MHz 3G. I know they might have the OEMs start putting them in, for next years phones.

    So basically T-Mobile can roam on AT&T, but AT&T can't roam on T-Mobile 3G? If so, that's sweet.

    I really have to agree with this point. All that peak download speed is good for is bragging rights. What do most smartphone users want? Enough download speed to watch a video and enough combined upload/download speed to video chat. More than that is just a distinction without a difference. I don't know anyone, except here and maybe one or two folks in the local LUG, who really cares about 3G vs 4G vs LTE. They just want it to work. T-Mobile's big problem is, and always had been coverage, or lack thereof. But I said when I could use my T-Mobile phone in Chadron, Nebraska I'd stop complaining about that.

    I wonder if T-Mobile will reverse their AT&T-like policies that they have adapted over the past year, since AT&T is out of the picture.

    Hopefully this roaming agreement will help T-Mobile out with their pathetic excuse for a 3G system here (top graphic) and allow them to take advantage of AT&T's much bigger network (bottom graphic).

    The 3G coverage maps are currently broken/not accurate.

    Free at Last. ATT gave up. Now T-mobile need to improve their network to gain their reputation.

    There are many iPhone owners who think they have a 4G device.

    The policies never had anything to do with AT&T. They were simply a way to try to extract more profit from T-mobile USA customers.

    Here's the DT head honcho himself, Rene, being interviewed just this morning on what will happen next with TMOUS:

    Way different than crying over spilled milk.

    Does this mean you are going to give up your $30 T-Zone (formerly iStream) Talk N' Text plan for AT&T, since its the wonder network of possibilities? /sarcasm

    I, for one, am ecstatic about the news:

    A) Deutsche Telekom may invest in T-Mobile USA, now that we have AT&T's AWS in more markets

    B) We can now roam on AT&T's NAM HSPA+ network, which will allow more 3G phones to work on our network, like the iphone.

    C) It still allows for a new company to invest in T-mo, should DT chose to sell it. AT&T is notoriously bad about grandfathering plans, and their CS.

    DoJ placing the microscope under Verizon now:

    http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2011-1...rum-deals.html

    This is the spectrum that T-Mobile needs, to get big. If Verizon isn't allowed to buy the AWS spectrum, there is no way AT&T would be allowed to buy it.

    DT should jump on this, with the money AT&T paid them. That money, plus the AWS spectrum, the roaming agreement, plus the Telco's AWS spectrum, would have T-Mobile hit it big.

    Being able to roam on AT&T's superior 3G network with my current data plan would keep me around awhile longer. However, I've seen no specifics about the roaming agreement. Will it permit roaming in just markets where there is no T-Mobile 3G footprint. Or anywhere on the network.

    I would laugh if I can use an iPhone 4S at 4G speeds on my tzone plan with unlimited data. But I'll believe it when I see it.
