T-Mobile's 3G data is getting better in my area
I still don't know how I feel about the AT&T / T-Mobile merger just yet. I do know that T-Mobile has the fastest service in my area (Sierra Vista, AZ) and I wouldn't want to lose this speed. I know its not super fast HSPA+ but since I live in a small city of 50,000 people I wouldn't expect any sort of real 4G technologies here any time soon so 3G is fine with me. I know some of you may laugh but considering that when I moved here 5+ years ago, T-Mobile was still rocking GPRS and only got EDGE service in 2007. Now just 4 years later, they are blowing the other cellular networks out of the water, AT&T and Verizon both included.
I'll be happy if the merger means a better, faster network. But if AT&T leaves out the little guys like Sierra Vista, AZ, I'm gonna be pretty pissed.
