    That’s odd. It’s good on safari and chrome on mobile and laptop

    This might have something to do with Tapatalk. Tapatalk on iOS acts weird with long link URLs. I can long press the link and have it open in Chrome or Safari just fine.

    Works fine for me.

    Anyway. This closes a huge gap Verizon has in Kentucky they also need to pursue Appalachian Wireless which will just about close that gap completely

    Good.

    Every regional carrier that becomes part of the native Verizon network is good for those of us that use prepaid and MVNOs.

    Verizon prepaid and some mvnos (straight talk for one) always had access to Verizon’s LTEIRA partners.

    The point is that *all* MVNOs would have better access since Bluegrass's network becomes Verizon-native in the next few months. I would rather see it as native coverage rather than LTEiRA, since most partners have not implemented VoLTE all that well, and VoLTE is a necessity now.
    There’s still several MVNOs that don’t have consistency on LTEiRA access, particularly on calling and text.
    I have seen inconsistencies on Total Wireless, Straight Talk's sister brand, where I could call/text on Chat Mobility (pre-acquisition) territory in Iowa, but not on Pioneer Wireless in Oklahoma. Data worked okay across the board.

    I see more of these deals as I doubt most of these small carriers have the desire or money to upgrade to 5G. Within 5 years only the most stubborn of LTEiRA partners will still exist

    I am sure Verizon has attempted to do that... has to be a number and AppWire may consider it. AppWire has a lot of employees, towers in places Verizon would’ve never placed at. AT&T not even close. Many stores as well. The day that happens I will switch to visible.
