    I've gone through email / BBB. Typically hasn't done much good. Best I can get is local engineers (use sparingly), or 2nd level support which might have some info on upgrades.
    AT&T... your world, throttled.

    No Verizon will be #1 in coverage. Sprint adds very little in terms of coverage. I roamed a lot on Verizon when I had sprint.

    This is not surprising. I did as well when I used Sprint for work. I've had friends with Sprint out in the boonies claiming how they had service... but it was always Verizon roaming.
    It will be interesting to see what these people do once they lose Verizon roaming and use T-Mobile roaming, with, in many rural areas is not as good on coverage.

    I thought Verizon roaming was replaced with ATT a year or so ago?

    Sprint roamed AT&T LTE for data but Verizon's CDMA for voice.

    It was almost 2years ago up near Big Bear, where my TMobile and AT&T phones where bricks, and those on Sprint had service

    I think T-Mobile can overtake Verizon in coverage over time especially considering the new synergies after this sprint-T-Mobile merger. It won't happen over night but I think it is possible.
    Manners cost nothing, and also have the added benefit of making a man. You know, it is entirely possible to rise above others, without stooping to pushing them under, and putting them down.

    Synergy is a wonderful word that sounds good but explains little. T-Mobile can make a run at Verizon by putting up addition towers and transmitter/receivers. It’s not their strong suit but maybe they’ll try. I really want them to do it because when in a strong T-Mobile area, it works like a champ.

    Synergies including increased revenues without running two networks, nationwide 600MHz to use with that increased revenue, along with AT&T and Verizon selling most of, if not all sites to 3rd parties

    They can easily do it, I mean hell FirstNet areas for AT&T usually far surpass Verizon for coverage AND speed

    It’s gonna be interesting to see where this ends up over the next 5yrs or so once sprint gets integrated and they see the increased cash flow from operating a single network.

    Yeah in their good spots they work extremely well, often better than the rest

    It’s those rough spots they need to get rid of

    T-Mobile definitely has the tools now to match both att and Verizon. Will take time but they are quite capable now if they truly want to

    Yeah they’re gonna spend an additional $40 billion in CAPEX over 3 years. Their plan is to build America’s largest and most reliable 5G network. I suspect they may need to increase that amount.

    Network integration is tricky and it does take resources. Thankfully T-Mobile has planned for this and has a team dedicated to this so it doesn’t interfere with their robust plans for their anchor network.

    It reminds me of Verizon’s earlier days when they were really hungry for customers and obsessed with coverage. But I’m more impressed with Magenta since they didn’t have to buy a company (Alltel) with an already established large rural network in order to serve rural customers. They are building it from the ground up.

    T-Mobile will certainly surpass att in the next few years. They are deploying new coverage at a furious pace.

    Urban/Suburban, I agree. True rural... I'm still doubtful that T-Mobile will deploy much more than paper thin for some time 'unless' Sprint customers start leaving in droves to VZW/AT&T for the coverage that they've had through roaming.
    Places like the Lake Placid area (Adirondaks), T-Mobile still roams a LOT on AT&T for much of the area.. and Verizon still has local deployed services (eg. Tupper Lake).
    Alaska is another area that I don't see T-Mobile massively deploying anytime soon (a LOT of coverage on AT&T in comparison, a lot of roaming by T-Mobile - all Alaska is roaming for T-Mobile customers).
    This comes down to cost/benefit. This is where I don't believe that T-Mobile will 'surpass AT&T in the next few years'. Covering an urban block vs. hundreds of sq. miles in these rural areas are quite different. Having thousands/tens of thousands pass by daily vs. a few people daily/weekly.
