    I’ve been with T-Mobile twice in the past three years hoping for improvements and had to ditch them because of terrible indoor service here in Milledgeville, Ga. Our local hospital is located near downtown with a macro cell a quarter of a mile away with all national carriers except T-Mobile on it. Even outside there’s no coverage from Tmo at the hospital. I currently have Sprint and worry about what’ll happen when the networks are integrated. My problem was when I went indoors at home I would drop down to one bar 2g edge or no service when outside I had almost three bars of LTE on my iPhone X. I have to say that for a city with three colleges and approximately 45,000 people living here that T-Mobile needs to do better. Come on T-Mobile please invest more in this market. It makes no sense that even Sprint outperforms here when it comes to indoor coverage and cell density. There are so so many people here that will drop Verizon and AT&T in a heartbeat if T-Mobile had better service in our area. We’re tired of having only the greedy bell twins as our only good options.

      I did the T-Mobile test drive a few years ago, and I remember having no signal all the way down 212 from Newton County to Milly, and only getting 2G *outside*, then getting *nothing* inside my friend’s dorm in Napier Hall. My main phone on AT&T had at the very least HSPA+/”4G” the whole ride down, and inside. I switched to T-Mobile after they got the ball rolling in metro ATL, since I was sick of having watch every damn MB of data so I wouldn’t get stuck paying AT&T an extra $15 per gig. It really sucks to hear they haven’t improved in Middle GA, ’cause I know how pricey AT&T and Verizon are… I hope you guys get some B71 love very soon. It’s made a huge difference in my area (zip code 30016).

      • Wilfred Williams

        I hate to be the bearer of bad news but service down 212 is still non existent. If you remember there being a Metro by T-Mobile store here, it recently went out of business and moved to Macon because of the network. I hope by 2021 it’ll get better and congrats to your area getting much needed improvements.

          I always said if before something don’t work for you get something that does . So go to another network? That works in your area ? At&t and Verizon are waiting for you . Heck I like t-mobile but if it don’t work work were I am u bet I’ma switch to Another carrier that does .

        • Wilfred Williams

          Well I’m one of those people who are going to be effected by this merger, because I’m with Sprint and it works great in my area. You can’t get the same bang for the buck with AT&T and Verizon. Also Verizon ripped me off on an old bill and I’ll never do business with them ever again.

    Nice to see Homestead.

  • FatWalrus

    Noticed the towers near my house in PB/ San Diego was down for a few days last week. Had 1 to no bars and slow to no data. Had to juggle wifi calling for a few days. I called TMO to report the tower and they said it looked like a few towers in my area were being upgraded. Now it’s back up to 5 bars and great data speeds on my Galaxy 10+ and my girlfriend’s iPhone 7. Keep it up TMO.

    • Rwolf

      That’s awesome. My city was on the upgrade list last week but I haven’t seen any improvements. Worse, my office doesn’t have wifi for employees and is also the place I get the worst signal. But I get strong signal on the road. So at least I can stream music on the way to to office and back lol.

    • Josh Schoonover

      Same thing happened in my area, in the far Eastern ATL ‘burbs. B71 is finally available, and speeds are far faster than they had been.

    Glad to see improvements continue to happen in upstate SC. Just got back from a trip to Pigeon Forge TN and usually the trip with T-Mobile is pretty horrible being up in the mountains but I was honestly surprised by the improvements. Coverage isn’t 100% but I’d say 85% of the drive for me was covered with T-Mobile compared to maybe 45% the last time I made the trip. I’m glad to see them continuing to build out service. My wife just switched from Verizon and has been very surprised with her service and is actually happy she made the switch.
