    Yes. In every which way possible. Competing with ATT's low band spectrum is an almost impossible task for TMO in rural areas. And that is said by someone who desperately wants TMO to succeed here.

    Not sure if that has anything to do with my post, or if that doomsday theory would benefit US consumers regardless of their carrier.

    But I do admire your confidence in your physic abilities...

    You might be right, but I will enjoy my T-Mobile service while it continues to work well for me.

    Oddly enough, right now, T-Mobile is the only carrier that can reliably deliver 10+Mbps at home and work and points in between.

    Rollover data is certainly an interesting move.

    I would love to see ATT do this. I really don't see any reason they shouldn't. You are paying for the data so why not let it carry over like minutes did. I thought ATT would be the first to do this.

    Minutes do not carry over with the current plans. There is no need to rollover unlimited features. Some articles about what some analysts think about the move:

    Well actually, if you have paid attention to UnCarrier, they are doing a lot of value adds that don't erode their ARPU, or will actually help to bring it up. Rollover data is the latest, which is meant as an up-sell, as it's only available on the larger plans that are less likely to need it in the first place.

    T-Mobile problem is not ARPU erosion, it's horrible coverage and competition from MVNOs using the big two's networks.

    Exactly, this is a move to get people to pay out that extra $10 per line to move up a level in data buckets.

    The people who use little data will have a hard time using up the ten gigabytes given to participants in the program. They will have to use up that allowance before rolling over any left over data from their monthly plans. Those customers would have to use up their three gigabyte allowances to dig into the ten gigabyte gift. After they use up the ten gigabytes, they would have to cut back usage in order to have any leftover data to go into the "Data Stash." People generally purchase more data because they want to use more data. The ten gigabyte gift is a "Catch 22". If you use the ten gigabytes, you have nothing to rollover. If you do not use the ten gigabytes, you are not allowed to rollover unused data from your monthly plan.
