    The coverage seemed really spotty. It doesn't seem like the goal was continuous coverage along I-80. If it was I would say T-Mobile failed in the first attempt. It is really similar to the coverage...

    I didn't join the caravan but I did make it for the celebration which was great. The Big Boy will likely make it to Topeka and KC just like 844 a few years ago. It will hopefully be much easier to...

    Calls worked fine on roaming in the area so no need to carry an extra phone. When travelling I rarely ever completely lose voice service west of the Mississippi. There is usually always a roaming...

    I-80 Wyoming Coverage

    I just traveled on I-80 in Wyoming and the service was pathetic with a OnePlus 6t. Cellmapper shows signal traces but the best I could get for much of the trip across Wyoming was Union Telephone....

    This is great for the rural areas of the US which have access to 1-5 mbps usually only from one provider. It does mean that T-Mobile will need to fix the areas of no coverage they paint light pink on...

    That would be my assumption which will leave the network constrained if Sprint roaming was provided. It is likely the system will be used for legacy systems that are harder to upgrade...not phones...

    Someone with more knowledge will be able to answer this: doesn't T-Mobile use an antenna that can do both 700 and 1900/2100?

    I think it comes down to backhaul, channels available, and trying to stretch the towers a bit thin (20249 on cell mapper is pushed a bit hard). Around the capitol can be a real problem at certain...

    The hurricanes the last few years have been rather brutal to infrastructure. Really highlighting where the weaknesses are. Even if the cell tower would have been broadcasting, the backhaul would have...

    I saw the V20 on Swappa for around $130. Not as good as $19 but still a decent benefit. If only they would take the LG G4 I would get rid of that thing before it decides to boot loop again.

    I believe it is KSHB that is in the way. T-Mobile seems to be trying to push toward Topeka with 600 as I clicked an area just a few blocks from where I live and it pulled up the 600 MHz compatible...

    It is on the T-Mobile page that they will give $300 for anything from a OnePlus One to the OnePlus 6. From the wording it does not sound like it even has to be a phone on an active line. If that is...

    The way the licenses were they were able to meet the requirements with a relatively small network. I would guess a few of the areas you are thinking of would be NE, WY, MT, ND, SD, ID, UT, NV, and so...

    T-Mobile..."we are providing this new technology, that'll be $30 to activate the eSIM." They will find a way to raise the price over the $25 they charge for the kit today. The US carriers could...

    Depending on the exact areas, the MVNO may not work well as you will not get some of the roaming that is possible in NE via Viaero and USCC. Of course this does depending on the areas you will be...

    This is even more true with some of the bands that T-Mobile is using. Even a T-Mobile G3 will be greatly limited on the T-Mobile network due to all of the changes since that phone was released. The...

    One of the easiest things T-Mobile could do to improve rural coverage would be to upgrade the old two sector sites. It is frustrating being able to see the tower and have no service as you are not in...

    One area that continues to frustrate me is in Topeka, KS on the west side of town. So much of Urish road is a dead area from about 17th street on over to 10th street. Going west from that area in the...

    I have noticed this when roaming on Viaero. Seems the band Viaero used was preferred over those used by T-Mobile. In those areas, it did seem the T-Mobile towers are too far apart so it may be that...

    Sprint left wires dangling for months at a site near me which was only fixed when new equipment was added. The equipment used by all carriers is rated to be placed outdoors at this point. Most of the...

    Question on the coverage through SD would be when this was. T-Mobile has had coverage across SD since about 2015-2016 time frame along the interstate. The coverage has been building out from there....

    Shentel owns the towers and equipment (or rents space on towers) but uses (leases) the spectrum that Sprint has in the areas they serve. These are areas that Sprint would not have had the funds...

    Shentel uses the Sprint spectrum to provide service. I wouldn't look for T-Mobile to keep Shentel around if the merger is approved.

    I run into this situation in around the apartment complex that I live in here in Topeka, KS. I'm okay about half the time unless I get stuck on 700 which is useless due to the number of people on...
