    “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

    That looks good. T-Mo is crushing it in some metric no one has adequately explained...

    I might ask you what Twitter asked Neville (and got no answer). What does that graph actually represent?

    T-Mo 4G is 96% of what? 5G is 18% of what?

    Edit: Nevermind, I found it in OpenSignal's website:

    "Availability is not a measure of coverage or the geographic extent of a network, it measures what proportion of time users have a network connection..."

    Just downloaded the app for grins. I apologize in advance for bringing the average down...

    The single-number metric I'd like to see (Which RootMetrics could come up with) would be a population-weighted download speed. It would be the average download speed in every census tract divided by the population of that tract, then average the results. This would be a single metric that would describe the speed that the average potential customer could expect to receive. As with all single-number metrics, it's flawed but it seems reasonable.

    Yeah stop bringing down the averages.

    Random Hypothetical Example: An ATT user may be more likely to see HSPA indoors in theory because ATT has low band HSPA deployed all over the country.

    Since T-Mobile doesn’t have low band HSPA (except maybe in Myrtle Beach) our phones in theory may hold onto low band LTE longer indoors thus resulting in higher LTE Availability.

    I literally can put my ATT powered Moto G6 into a metal box for a few seconds and the signal will drop to 3G/4G 850 MHz. And it will camp out on that network for a bit. In this case I am negatively affecting ATT’s LTE Availability score.

    I certainly didn't mean to make it sound meanacing, like I was going to intentionally try to tank T-Mo's score!

    I just happen to be sheltering in place at my elderly mother's house to help her out while she's having some health issues, and, unfortunately for me, T-Mo signal is weak here. Since Mom's a Luddite who's never owned a cell phone or a PC, I've had to get broadband internet installed here to get work done, and am using my T-Mo cell service via WiFi calling/texting. (In the week it took to get Cox to run cable internet service here, I had to use my phone as a hotspot in an upstairs window to get consistent signal.)

    While I have a consistent solid T-Mo LTE signal at home in Denver, I'm averaging about 85% so far at my Mom's in Providence, which is below T-Mo's 96%. I may have to uninstall the OpenSignal app until I get back home to Denver!
