    NW Ontario was power fed from the west (~Thunder Bay). Typically outages have occurred due to non typical issues that you would see in the urban areas. Power once went out for a few days due to a...

    That's kind of a typical deployment expected in suburban/urban areas.... Cover 'some' but not all sites with backup generators. E.g.. If my closest cell was down, 3 others can reach.

    Yeah.. Wait for some rebuild and refarm. In urban areas, you might notice changes earlier.

    As I mentioned... weakest link. When I lived in the boonies of NW Ontario, I can recall of only once in +20 years that POTS service went down. The wireless service up there was also pretty rugged. ...

    I can/do agree with most of this. Typically (in the past), most carriers typically considered themselves in position by subscriber count - paid / prepaid. This is how T-Mobile is justifying their...

    POTS itself as a service 'can' be very reliable, and as long as maintained... it typically has been. As people have effectively dropped POTS service, carriers (esp more rural) are typically required...

    Yup... doesn't always have to be 'power', as a fiber/trunk cut, aggregator outage or 'computer' back end issue can take down large(r) areas.

    That last part becomes more of a current issue. IF you're in an emergency (reason for 911), finding something that will work as a SIM tool may not be that easy. People just want 911 to work

    I haven't been in a situation (yet) to use 911 with Emergency SoS on VoLTE on an carrier - luckily.
    I would agree that there is an issue if VZW VoLTE won't accept 911 calls from non VZW VoLTE...

    I recall having to use Commnet when I went through New Mexico years ago on AT&T Wireless. Back in ~2005, AT&T Wireless had weak service in Albuquerque, and hit/miss most of the way to Santa Fe, and...

    Not to push any props here, but ... if there was 'any' service, 911 would/should still work.

    I've passed through the UP on i75 last summer , and Kinross site was decent as it had b4/12/71. West of there is primarily B71 and some B12. Some of the larger towns/cities have B4. Much of the UP...

    Seeing that these 2 are in different counties brings up an interesting bit... spectrum.
    From what I can see (on the older maps), T-Mobile has native non 600MHz spectrum deployed in a few towns, this...

    It is an option... The question is... Does TMobile want/need the far end roaming service that badly? If they can flip it in exchange for other roaming for similar or lower cost... They might bite.

    San Jose should be good. I can't speak for the hills, however. Much of the area is fairly flat, and I suspect much Nimby and towers are no taller than 30'. It's been a while since I've been to...

    In some rural areas, TMobile still has roaming, such as upstate NY, MI and probably VT, but not California. I suspect that it is probably due to cost and traffic. Upstate NY, MI probably don't see...

    I wouldn't expect every site (esp urban) to have redundant power. Most urban macro cells probably should have some form. Metro cells...not likely.
    If TMobile wants to get IoT /government contracts...

    Right - in many urban markets - where the network is saturated... 5G NSA or SA will help a lot. In suburbia, or rural places, not so much. It won't hurt any. Eg. In rural Cambria, where there is...

    In the terms of 'Branded T-Mobile prepaid and postpaid lines' vs. AT&T they are slightly ahead.
    In the terms of actual overall lines (including MNVO), they are slightly behind

    Using LTE B71, outdoors, its mostly 'in'. Most of T-Mobile's B71 sites are large macros which cover quite a large area, and similarly, there's a huge amount of overlap here (which isn't bad). I can...

    Depending where you are... your phone doesn't support LTE Band 71. Other than that, it supports all that you need.. and then some. Basically, its similar in spec to the LG G7, but w/o B71.

    I know of a few people that have (or had) Sprint service here in SoCal, back in 2018. Way up in the boonies of Camp Osito Rancho, near Big Bear Lake, CA. I had T-Mobile + work AT&T = 'No Service' on...

    For many in urban areas, 5G SA may be a boost as LTE in some markets may be heavily used. In less capacity stricken areas, there's not much incentive. . same with rural areas.
    With n71/n41,...

    I agree. If I'm not mistaken, Verizon roaming coverage was 1x voice, and LTE data was AT&T (kinda weird setup).
    I had mentioned this before ... even to T-Mobile in some of my calls (complaints) to...
