Re: High-Speed Wireless Is All Well And Good, But...
said by NuShrike:That doesn't quite have the convenience and features of your own swifty-nifty "smart"phone and associated plan on your carrier-of-choice, tho, does it?
I'd say just get a prepaid hotspot/phone for the areas you're traveling through, but stay with carrier that's best for where you live. Same as if you're going to travel a foreign country.
We'll work it out. And, since 99-44/100% of my airtime is spent here, rather than elsewhere, I chose the service that made the most sense for where I spend all that time.
Still... it would be nice if T-Mobile had better coverage in more places.
Europe I'm not worried about. That was one reason for the unlocked GSM phones. When we go, we'll just get pre-paid SIMs on whatever network best suits there.
Re: 4G how about ANY G

It's the major reason why they are in last place.

If I'm not a targeted customer than quit showing me ads on TV in print or on the web.
| Sounds like you connect with EDGE/2.5G. T-Mobile sucks because a large part of their network is only GSM/EDGE, which connects at 200Kbps. In my case, it does this in all non-major cities and freeway areas, and I found my phone behaves like it doesn't even have internet in those areas. Like Google Maps, Google Play, email, NOTHING actually loads because EDGE is so slow and congested.. fuck.|
Now in major city areas, I get 4G HSPA+ and LTE, upto 30Mbps down and 16Mbps up. They don't list it, but Springfield/Eugene OR also have LTE and have for months (but not full coverage; it's spotty, off and on here and there; otherwise it goes back to 4G HSPA+, which is fast, 10-15Mbps down / 6 Mbps up).

Re: Southern Illinois Per website, Southern Il largest good coverage in Metro East area. Otherwise, limited to areas near Mt. Vernon, Centralia, Effingham, Salem, Flora, Vandalia,
Lots of areas with No Service. T-Mobile has lots of areas with No Service throughout rural Illinois, from north to central to south. T-Mobile is the worst of the Big 4 wireless companies, for rural coverage coast-to-coast.
