Penetration is the key!

This low frequency will travel much further that the 2.4 Ghz and even the 800 Mhz. They shouldn't need as many antennas to cover similar areas as other carriers which means quicker deployments. At least I think I have that right. What an excellent move for T-Mobile. Plus look at all that lovely pimk in Alaska, where T-Mo has ZERO (native) coverage.
Don't expect them to suddenly put up a bunch of cell sites just because they have a license there. It might be years until that happens.

And once

Again you'll need a new handset to take advantage of this new found spectrum and coverage. Phone makers must just love T-Mobile.
The makers of the cell site equipment must love them too. Sprint as well.

Will Start Using

There are plenty of spotty areas once you get out of a town, highway, metro area with T-Mobile. Hopefully this puts them on a par with big-red and blue.
I dropped them because their service was really bad where I worked.
They have no plans of upgrading the area even though many requests from many people and even in the surrounding residential areas have been made.
Only on the major highway that is a few miles away have they decided to keep the service decent.
