    I disagreed. I didn't read the AG's quote "we hope to work with all the parties..." as an attempt to continue negotiations after losing, but rather as a veiled threat that NY intends to hold New T-Mo...

    Google Fi would be faster, because they don't throttle you to 128kbps, but Google charges $10/GB vs. $0 for T-Mobile (assuming the plan supports free international data.)

    The larger problem, as...

    To be fair, off-road was a category that developed decades after the automobile was invented. But that's ok- to flog the dead horse of our analogy, I'll offer this:...

    I don't pretend to understand wireless tech, but I sort of understand statistics.

    I guess I don't really understand the real world advantages of DSS. As a rule, isn't the number of folks using 4G...

    Perhaps, but to be fair, my $5/month 2G "T-Zones" unlimited WAP plan became an unlimited 3G and 4G internet plan over time without any (significant) price increase (T-Mo's BS "regulatory fees" jumped...
  7. And, to strain my analogy further, early...

    And, to strain my analogy further, early smartphones were designed to handle 1G and 2G networks, as well as WiFi, etc. I've painfully connected my oldest smartphones at T-Mo's 9.6kbps CSD or 14.4k...

    As I've explained to the all-or-nothing types here many times, I'm happy with T-Mo. They aren't perfect (regardless of what you seem to believe), but they represent, as least to me, an excellent...

    What's really laughable is that anyone thinks who was first out of the gate with any of this is important, or that consumers (other than us cellular nerds here) care about this. I'm guessing 80-90%...

    My apologies. I just sort of ***-u-me that the humor is apparent when I say something that silly. Next time I'll put some sort of idiotic laughing emoji or something.

    Great. So to guarantee good wireless service regardless of what carrier we use, we all just have to move to whatever city hosts the super bowl...

    Good point. The next time I read about how automobiles were the most important invention of the 20th century, I'll remember that actually the paved road was, because without paved roads, automobiles...

    Your problem was it was a Motorola... :) Don't get me wrong, Moto made great phones, but for some reason the only OEM to consistently make Windows Mobile phones that didn't completely suck was HTC. I...

    Since we seem to be a crossroads between LTE and 5G, I wonder how much of this conversion will be allowed to progress naturally. There's already a significant overlap in compatibility between so many...

    As I was trying to say (badly), IMO, it was the combination of ease of use with the mandatory data plan.

    Verizon already had mandatory data plans for smartphones, but "regular folks" weren't...

    Yep. Too many words banging around my too small of a noggin! I meant urban and suburban.




    True. I was just taking issue with the idea that because a combined T-Mo/Sprint suddenly has achieved...

    B41 is useful in towns and cities, rural or otherwise, but yeah, 600MHz will cover the wife open spaces.

    That sidesteps the point. If T-Mo expects to be a competitive top 3 carrier they need to...

    Typically most carriers and MVNOs don't really care about tethering if you're account has a hard cap, the theory being you paid $X for Y GBs of data, so they're yours to use as you wish. (The OP...

    What?

    How will T-Mobile have the "lowest costs going forward"? They have no network to speak of outside of rural and suburban areas. They they acquired Sprint, who also has no network in all the...

    More of a bail out than a windfall. I think I paid just over $9/share for it back in the day. A bazillion years ago when I was in the cellular biz (I owned an independent Cingular Wireless dealership...
