    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...

    I suspect that lack of roaming, and T-Mobile's 'not quite there' rural coverage would cause many Sprint customers to bail in short order if Sprint became part of T-Mobile and they lost existing...

    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.

    Tmobile's coverage is typically as thin as they can get away with in many rural locations. In my use in many rural areas (Vermont, upstate NY, northern and UP of Michigan, coastal California),...

    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.

    I suspect that, just like in the US T-Mobile roaming on AT&T has limits of use.
    If I was to purchase a Rogers unlimited and used ~30GB/month on Bell... I suspect that it would not end well.

    During a second trip... Some of The areas in the central valley don't appear to be running CA.. Typically on CA 46. I get b4 20x20 and b2 15x15, but will never show CA, and will max at 35Mbps....

    Rogers will also need to build out its rural areas 'somewhat' if it wants to grow. The urban area is the 'low fruit hanging from the tree', but rural markets end up being 'what works or doesn't'.

    The unlimited plans are effectively a 'pay more for more', as there has been little incentive to _really_ go mobile for everything in Canada.
