    Stay far away from T-Mobile if you live in my home state of Georgia. I can say that at least where Sprint has coverage it works great because I’m a customer. I’ve had T-Mobile for years on the promise that the network will get better in my area but that was all a lie so I switched. If this merger goes through then I’m switching to AT&T. I know from my own experience that T-Mobile will come up short and not follow through just like these network upgrade announcements on this website. Also whoever gave me a downvote can hate on my opinion all they want but facts are facts and I’m sticking by them. If T-Mobile performed better than I wouldn’t have to gripe but they’re not. Lack of low band deployment is really hurting them here in Georgia. I know that at times I roam on Sprint but at least I always have a low band connection all the time no matter what and that makes a big difference. T-Mobile is lackluster in central Georgia and I have to be honest and call it how I see it regardless of who gets offended.

    • Sharti24

      Lol you finally switched?

    • Aaron a

      If the merger happens go with dish. I’m not being silly Google , Amazon or apple will combine and partner with dish and they have more to lose than TMobile cutting towers and service and paying a small fine for not fulfilling promises . People get mad but we can already see TMobile by dropping fake 5g it’s 5ge clone is stupid and people stand up for TMobile all the time. But won’t call out the lies. Sprint is also better here. But we will find out tomorrow if the merger will happen in watching to switch from TMobile to dish. 600mhz is trash I have bars of service and it’s lte bars with no data.

      • Wilfred Williams

        I remember before 2019 when I used to be a die-hard T-Mo fanboy until I woke up and smelled all the marketing bull crap which they’re great at. Dish is gonna be a MVNO so I might as well stay with my current carrier for now. I live within a mile of two towers. Both towers have AT&T and Verizon while only one has Sprint. The nearest T-Mobile tower is at least two miles away and with mid band spectrum. I live in the piedmont region of Georgia which is very hilly with foliage so you pretty much know that quality low band is mandatory if you want to keep customers.

        • marque2

          Why on Earth are you all commenting so negatively on a TMobile site if you have moved on and are so happy with your new service. Why not go to a Verizon or AT&T fan site and post how great things are there?

        • Wilfred Williams

          It’s because I can potentially become a T-Mobile customer again if this merger goes through and want T-Mobile to do better in my market. I do applaud them for what they’ve done in other markets but as far as Georgia they really only care about Atlanta. AT&T and Verizon pricing sucks and they’re also congested in my market since they work every where. There aren’t many choices to choose from here and it blows.

        • Wilfred Williams

          I forgot to mention that live in a medium sized college town so there shouldn’t be any excuse for the tower situation. If I lived in the sticks then I would give T-Mo a lot of slack. There’s at least 40,000 people where I’m from but still they don’t care to fix anything. You have to understand that T-Mo burned me bad when I was a customer because they abandoned a lot of us.

        • Mike Smith

          I was thinking the same thing. What motivates these people?

        • Trillboi Will

          Same thing that motivates you people…

        • Mike Smith

          No? You’re in a forum for a company that you’re not a customer of trolling. They “burned you”? They “abandoned you”? There’s no contract bro, if it doesn’t work for you, find a company you like better.

          Put down the keyboard and get out of the basement

  • Sharti24

    Crickets $40 unlimited data you cant beat

    • Wilfred Williams

      A lot of people I know have Cricket and are heavily throttled so I stay away. It’s a good deal but I prefer postpaid service.

      • Sharti24

        You get Volte with sprint?

        • Wilfred Williams

          Yep.

        • Aaron a

          They had volte for quite sometime hopefully the merger is blocked so Sprint and T-Mobile won’t cut towers to cut costs which most mergers worse service becomes the outcome

        • Wilfred Williams

          I sure hope they don’t.

        • Sharti24

          Tmobile is keeping 11k sprint towers if the merger goes through

  • Aaron a

    I have a 600mhz phone Utah mostly uses 700mhz but still full bars of lte and no data I’m getting really sick of T-Mobile’s poor service

  • Rob H.

    I’d like to see a data speed improvement in 38242. 30 miles north in 42071 it’s great ,60+ Mbps. I ditched AT&T for TMobile and happy I did.

  • Phil7474

    Finally picked up band 71 on LTE and when I saw it was only 5 mhz, I quickly realized it’s as useless as band 12. I see now most of band 71 is reserved for 5G. 15 mhz 5g and 5 mhz LTE. Hey at least its carrier agg possible

    • dtam

      kind of makes sense that they are doing it this way, no? They’re going to need as wide of a band as possible for 5G.

      • Phil7474

        True. It dose make sense. I don’t blame them either. Its just, like they’re band 12(600mhz) of 5 mhz is useless, I found out when your using band 71 on LTE without carrier agg, it’s just as useless as band 12.

  • Willie D

    If I had a penny for every time they claimed “capacity” upgrades I’d have enough to own TMo myself… the capacity I’ve seen has actually diminished with these so called upgrades.

  • Mike Smith

    Mad? Why would I be mad? Troll your heart.

    • Trillboi Will

      I was a customer for five years before I finally switched and if this merger is a go then I’ll end right back with them so what’s your point. I just want to see improvements in my region that’s all bro. Don’t seem like you’re that busy either since you’re entertaining me. I thought this was a fair sight where you can express your concerns about the company and be heard. T-Mobile is one of my favorite carriers still to this day. They work great near the coast in Savannah where I’m from but when I moved to central Georgia near Macon they lag behind. I hope they can get it together soon.

      • Mike Smith

        Have you considered providing them feedback on areas where you have dropped calls instead just trolling forums? Open Signal and Root Metrics will both provide solid data.

        • Trillboi Will

          I’ve already done all that and more with no results. I figured it is what it is. I left T-Mobile and went to Sprint. I just hope the network is better after the integration period and if not then I’ll just move on. Just because we don’t see eye to eye doesn’t mean I’m a troll cause I’m not. I actually like the company. If there’s any company I would troll it would be Verizon whom I can’t stand. Stop riding me and find someone else to harass please.

        • Mike Smith

          If you’re going to participate in a forum and someone replies to you that’s not “harassing” you, anymore than a dropped call means T-Mobile “burned” you. Be prepared to defend what you say.

  • Mike Smith

    You may be a lot of things… busy isn’t one of them if you have time to troll companies you’re not even a customer of. ;)
