So i just recently came home from a nice vacation and while i was away i was constantly reading both exciting and horrible things about home in regards to all the carriers. One of the things i was thinking about and wondering though is how the coverage expansion was going. I'm well aware that t-mobile acquired nationwide access to a swath of 600mhz spectrum and that by the end of 2017 their coverage should look like the map that they use to compare to other carriers. My problem is that i haven't seen any noticeable improvements in actual native coverage.
That is not to say huge improvements are not being made or that speeds are not incredible in places like Detroit or Atlanta which i saw above 100mb download in the airport. Its just that there is still so much missing. Now T-mobile plans to charge a bit more based off of what i read on redit and various news outlets even though coverage is still not on par with Verizon.
So as mentioned with the title I just want some info regarding future expansion of coverage. Will it be in the current bands or will it only be seen with the 600mhz and require a new phone purchase to be made.
PS still love my t-mobile service and rate plan and am quite happy thanks to DIGITS. Just want to see some progress since i have to travel alot more throughout to US and alot of places leave much to be desired.
