    Question What advantage does T-Mobile's new 600MHz network compared to AT&T?

    Sounds like they're just adding LTE Advanced or Dual Carrier LTE. Anybody have insight into this?

    More than likely, better building penetration of signal.

    I heard the new 600 mhz helps tmobile beat att lte by 1% coverage wise.

    I have T-Mobile and AT&t and I can still say AT&t is better with the coverage.

    Where are you from? I'm thinking of switching to att, but I feel like there network isn't reliable. For example my friends have att and live in the same apartment complex. When they call me the voice quality is extremely spotty and I can barely hear them vs when I'm over there inside the apartment complex making calls on my tmobile phone no problem with crystal clear voice quality. Is att data speeds faster than tmobile? I feel like data speed on my tmobile is pretty fast.

    That's because T-Mobile is taking forever to cooperate with other carriers with cross carrier HD Voice.

    I disagree with you T-Mobile still has some pretty shoddy coverage that needs to be fixed. On top of that they are so constrained in some markets that is ridiculous. also on top of that in my area they are deploying band 71 on the 5 megahertz block when they have 10. If they think running 5 megahertz 5G service is something to brag about that's bullcrap.

    No doubt, I wouldn't give a t-mobile line to a kid. Last night i was in a low income area and my highest on t-mobile was 3 Mbps, while my highest on att was 75 Mbps. 1 year ago i was in the same spot and got .8 Mbps on a family members brand new iPhone XS on t-mobile, while my iPhone 8 plus on att got 18 down it looks like t-mobile hasn't made any effort to upgrade, but att has- sad. t-mobile and att has about the same coverage but the real difference is speed.

    I'm actually in southern New Jersey and AT&t gives me the better reception and data speeds

    Sure, but when AT&T has 30-40 MHz of DL spectrum in lowband to T-Mobile’s 10-15 MHz, the quality of coverage will likely be much different.

    I completely agree with you. Because T-Mobile in my area of New Jersey which is Central Jersey lacks the capacity on the low band side. AT&t has plenty of lte spectrum deployed. And Central Jersey they have started 850 megahertz reforming of the 3-g band. T-Mobile is completely outclassed.

    As always... it totally depends on where you live. Assuming your phone has all the bands in use.

    Your phone can have all the bands in the world and it won't matter if the coverage isn't good enough because of lack of cells site density.

    Yeah that's why I'm thinking of switching to att. I just sim swapped with my buddy real quick so I know my phones unlocked. Would it be worth it I have four lines unlimited data tmobile 100 total. If I move to att I'm doing one line not four. I travel to NH twice a week. I'm from mass.
