Tmobile just got a 4 billion dollar payout from att. What is their excuse? You would think managing a network with a footprint the size of a halfdollar would be a little easier than the nighmare of mixed frequency and techs(wimax, cdma, iden, 1x advanced, lte) that sprint is dealing with.

Sprint has my understanding. Plus, I would rather support an american (and my home town) company rather than a german conglomerate.

@austin420
T-mobile was suffering because of the sell to AT&T, as a result of that customers got scared and network upgrades were put on hold,now that's gone customers have stopped leaving and they have gained customers in the last quarter. They have also announced major network upgrades that will not only increase coverage and rollout LTE but it will also allow one to use any phone they please. I bet T-mobile will have LTE rolled out to a large portion of their customers before sprint does. And what's their excuse for their network being the way it is? Especially since AT&T had and still is having that issue in some areas, you'd think they'd learn from that, obviously not.

If you have nothing else to say but irrational hate for T-mobile and allegiance for sprint then you shouldn't be posting in this thread.

Re: T-mobile to deploy LTE,refarm HSPA(+) to main PCS band and attacks Verizon

Here's the deal imho. It is true t-mobile lost alot of customers last quarter and it is completely plausible to assume this had alot to do with the merger talks. It's correct that t-mobile is owned by the German giant D telecom, but they also maintain and thriving corporate and IT operation in Seattle. In fact, my employer is one of the largest suppliers of technical consultants to T-mobile and they are one of our largest customers. They employ thousands of employees and hundreds of IT professionals that we hire in Seattle, Atlanta, etc. We were literally crapping our pants when it looked like they were going away...lol. Anyway, the fact of the matter is both companies have their issues with coverage and network strength depending on your specific location as you guys have pointed out. Sprint has a much larger footprint but at the cost of slower overall speeds. T-mobile appears to be damn fast around the cities but pretty crappy in the sticks which was my experience as well. The fact of the matter is we should be rooting for both of them to succeed and grow. Having 4 viable national carriers will put the heat on all of them to remain competitive, lower prices and make improvements which they all need. In essence then we all win .
