    Do you know which bands are in use in your area, and how much spectrum is in use?

    That's not typical of many places. I would have to assume that the signal is poor. In a TMobile store, it's quite possible that they have a cell spot running. Short range, but decent speeds....

    This will come down to the second part... just as important - which area of the country are you in ? Some areas do not have much spectrum deployed. Similarly, if your phone is on say... band 12,...

    I've been fortunate to not have this happen (yet). In fact, I have taken cruise ships to get away from work, as they will not pay for roaming service on my work phone. 4 days each way into the...

    I agree. Cruise ship roaming may not even be seen as international roaming, depending on where you are. Eg. Taking a cruise from L.A. to Hawaii may be different than going from Italy to Spain. ...

    Which model of TMobile phone do you have? Some older models dont have all of the carrier aggregation/band 12/71, etc.

    Just as a note.. I'm going on a limb here.
    I did use iPhone 7 (T-Mobile) in Greece and Italy. If you have a Verizon iPhone 7, you may have issues specifically to LTE/UMTS/GSM bands....

    Most of these tests are not worth much, IMHO. Most of the California areas tested, in all categories, T-Mobile didn't do so hot. The question for anyone but the fanboys are.. does it work for you? ...

    In a nutshell... yes.
    In the areas that I visit often, coverage is similar, speeds are better on T-Mobile.

    I have both AT&T (work iPhone 8) and personal T-Mobile (LG G7).
    In general, both work well in SoCal urban/suburban areas. T-Mobile typically has more sites, and higher data rates where I am

    I've been able to hit ~150Mbps on a B4 20x20 channel. Typically ~100-125Mbps on B4 only unless I hit an area with high loads.

    T-Mobile effectively _had_ to esure WiFi calling would work, as its rural network was (is still) swiss cheese.
    It was very aggressive on the push to VoLTE as well - partially to save its spectrum...

    That's pretty much the way I see it. Rural coverage in many areas 'does work'... as long as you are outdoors, or along a highway. Speeds typically are decent and usable - where service has a decent...

    Interesting... TMobile roaming is the opposite. Bell/Telus are automatic easy roaming. Roaming on Rogers -can- be done, but it is not easy...at least in Northern Ontario.

    They probably will paint 'afterwards'. I'm not sure why, but carriers are painting after the panels are up (more expensive/time consuming).

    In general... AFAIK, T-Mobile doesn't have carrier agg on the upload, so... B4 (or any other band) would be needed as primary.
    and you'd still get ~50-60Mbps on upload.
