    I checked internetproviderbyzip.com and they say the two major ISPs are COX and AT&T. We're paying AT&T $50/mo for "6 Mb" Uverse Internet but it's been testing recently at >20 Mbps. (I don't know...

    I don't see T-Mobile keeping Sprint's CDMA operating any longer than is necessary to give current Sprint customers to fair chance to replace their non-VoLTE handsets with newer ones.

    Having T-Mobile customers roam Sprint would run contrary to the goal of repurposing Sprint's licenses ASAP. I still think there may be some room for sharing of Sprint's band 41 infrastructure but I...

    Carriers and individuals often recommend a new SIM to fix coverage issues but I have yet to see a cogent explanation of why that would help.

    Only if they really want to. I believe the plan all along has been to flip the licenses for a profit and wriggle out of the FCC's coverage requirements by any means possible. It will be interesting...

    I don't particularly like Sprint (at least not more than any other carrier) but I also hate seeing them fail. I feel that the US needs at least four wireless carriers to assure strong price...

    It looks good. The Canadian version of the G3 (D852) lists the following bands:
    2G bands: GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900 (I don't think there's any 2G remaining in Canada)
    3G bands: HSDPA 850 / 1900 /...

    Major cities: Jackson, Biloxi, Gulfport, Hattiesburg, Vicksburg, etc are reasonably well covered as are the major highways. However, the coverage is still pretty much the spiderweb that was developed...

    It appears that the towers around Croton (there are none in the town) use band 5 (850 MHz) for 3G service. As 3G is depreciated, this should switch over to LTE, which would give an additional 5 or 10...

    It's easy to cover a high percentage of the population of rural states. Just cover the capital city and a few other population centers. The trick is covering the land area of a rural state with few...

    At Greensboro and University. Some more spread out on I-59. Keep in mind that eastern and central Alabama have band 12 already and won't be a high priority for deployment of band 71. Band 71 is...

    Fi works well if you're careful to make use of all possible WiFi hotspots. My wife managed to stay below $40/mo and normally below $30. Only the fact that we could get T-Mobile's 55+ plan @ $60/2...

    Dish will be able to take over any of Sprint's tower leases that T-Mobile does not need. I'd imagine that Sprint's equipment at those towers would be depreciated to the point that it would cost...

    T-Mobile has been deploying band 71 along US-80, between Montgomery and Meridian. I also found band 71 in Oak Hill, AL when I passed through recently. Except for right along US-80, not many T-Mobile...

    That's one legislator for every 7000 people! What? Does everyone just take turns?

    I once got an official state road map of RI. Same size as the official road map of Texas but rather than the dots representing towns and cities, they're houses. ;)

    This is really the situation. The number of dual-SIM phones that support band 71 are very few and rather expensive. Not the $99 Blu you mentioned earlier.

    I made use of the 2nd NAM on my Nokia 2170 (?) when I visited Canada and got a temporary Rogers prepaid account.

    While dual-SIMs have been around a long time, for most of that time the second SIM has been a second-class SIM, limited to 2G only. In an environment where carriers have eliminated or depreciated 2G,...

    A long time ago someone (I wish I knew who) on Usenet had a SIG that went, "All wireless carriers suck. The trick is to find one that sucks in a way you can live with." I agree with @collegea,...

    I kind of wish they had dots of some color (grey or black) to indicate someone was there but found no signal. I understand this could be misleading, they might not have a phone with all bands.

    The GSM standard has provisions for forwarding texts but AFAIK it has never been implemented anywhere. Texts are delivered as usual when roaming. Since most T-Mobile plans have free incoming and...
