T-Mobile on Monday said its new coverage map is based on "customer usage data points" rather than theoretical coverage. I call bullshit.
I've had T-Mobile service for about two years now. I became a T-Mobile customer after a brief dalliance with Straight Talk Wireless, back in 2013. The company had just brought the iPhone 5 online — its first iPhone.
At the time, T-Mobile was still managing a transition to 4G LTE coverage from what it had before and things were rough. I went a long time before I saw any data speeds or coverage close to what I was accustomed to as an AT&T customer. Even now, though I'm having problems. Which makes T-Mobile's new more accurate map questionable, in my eyes.
