    That's great validation. Seriously what was wrong with ATT's 5Ge network last night? JK

    “The Internet wasn’t meant to be metered in bits and bytes, so it’s insane that wireless companies are still making you buy it this way. The rate plan is dead — it’s a fossil from a time when wireless was metered by every call or text.” John Legere 1/5/2017

    LOL. Right before I ported my main line from AT&T to T-Mobile, my iPhone started saying 5GE and it was getting 5-6Mbps.. I’m wondering if they are trying to set expectations low for 5G .

    Maybe their 5G will only be a tiny bit faster than LTE so they don’t want people to expect 500Mbps+.

    I also use At&t - T-mobile side by side. I can give solid 5/5 for Att here. May be you can find a spot where T-mobile is faster than Att, but the ration of bad spots is 1:10
    100% agree with you nowadays you can trust only what you see yourself. I drove some Rootmetrics bad Att test spots and had 10+ speed while their reports showed less than 1.

    P.S. I already had the most reliable Toyota based on Consumer Reports. Never again :-)
    You probably have more experience in the Boston area that I do. I've been there 3x, and service was good, and no issues. Outside of Boston, however, service deteriorates quite quickly (as does T-Mobile service outside of most metros).
    AT&T... your world, throttled.

    I think you are right. Or all those places with 0 mbps TMO and 12+ mbps Verizon.

    This is why I applaud T-Mobile building out to catch up

    There's definitely some bias in that data set... T-Mobile's network quality is nowhere near Verizon or AT&T nationwide, and Verizon is a bit behind AT&T in my area.

    It was a 'poll' and not a scientific based result (i.e. location + testing + specific handset + specific time of day, etc)
    If I was polled locally, I'd give good ratings to T-Mobile, as their service here 'locally' is very good. If I was upstate in Vermont, or rural New Hampshire, I'd probably not use them.. but possibly AT&T or Verizon.
    If most of T-Mobile's users are urban, and the rural is interstates and main highways... they'll probably have decent ratings. AT&T and Verizon's customers are 'more likely' (IMHO) to use their service outside of the city and rely on its use. This is possibly the same reason that my work will not allow T-Mobile service to be picked when picking a work device (strange enough... Sprint is allowed).

    True. Could be the same reason some 2- or 3-star hotels get great reviews... lower expectations.

    Ever see a McDonald's with five stars. That one's a head scratcher.

    I did give a McDonald's 4 stars once. It was really clean and all the employees were polite and spoke clearly in standard English. A unique experience. I almost thought I was at a Chick-Fil-A.

    There's a lot of variation franchise to franchise, and region to region. It's weird in the Midwest in fast food joints there's a bunch of people working there and they all speak good English. In the Northeast, the service is usually lousy, many of the employees are struggling to communicate in English, and they are chronically understaffed. Culver's is fascinating. They have a whole army, everything is hot and fresh, the restaurants are immaculate, and the service is top notch. I've never been in a standalone chick Fillet, as I won't go in those or Hobby Lobby due to the owners extremist stances on certain things we can't talk about on here.
