I've been on WiFi all day so I didn't notice. That's crazy though, I remember the last AT&T outage a few months ago and it was painful because my internet was also out because AT&T uses my ISP for their backbone around here. The outage was almost a whole day so I was stuck on a 4G Hotspot with FreedomPop and re-watching stuff on my NAS.

Happened yesterday, my phone was affected but my parent's weren't. So I though my phone had problems. Did a hard reset still didn't work. Took out SIM card and try on my HTC, same thing. Could it be SIM card, was about to go to them, so they can give me another one. Then I saw this thread. So it was cricket all along then.

I pay $50 for 5GB

On the real though, let's not stray off-topic by criticizing someone's profile pic which they brought no attention to themselves.

In what universe? AT&T and Verizon still easily destroy TMO in voice/3g coverage. LTE on Tmobile is only just now catching up, but they are still in third.

I doubt that's accurate T-Mobile is generally right behind Verizon and AT&T but that's not coverage and T-Mobile doesn't have the most coverage at all. The top is Verizon has the best speed, AT&T has the best coverage, and T-Mobile is less of both but not terrible and cheaper

Why wouldn't it be accurate? Speedtest.net is the most used internet speedtest service (AFAIK) and is quite accurate from my experience. In PCMag's test, T-Mobile came right behind Verizon, and that test was done nearly a year ago. T-Mobile has doubled it's coverage over the course of last year, while Verizon hasn't done much at all.

Speed is not coverage. Notice how that says "strongest in the urban Northeast and Western cities" meaning in rural areas or along major highways where people actually NEED mobile devices out in the middle of the country, they are still shit.

Don't get me wrong, I love Tmobile for everything they have done with pricing structures, but for actual usability they are still a far third.
