I like Milan a lot but deducing coverage from speed tests is just wrong.

That's what I'm scared of. Since I actually still will need to be able to roam, I don't want to test my luck. But it looks promising thus far!

I've yet to ever roam on Verizon as far as I know.

Actually, went to a fair today that had a Verizon COW set up i believe.  I roamed on it much of the time while there.  Sent some traffic through and my roaming totals did update from that traffic so USCC roaming, not counted (even in native coverage totals for some reason).  Verizon roaming IS counted.

Just a heads up, there is no data roaming in major metro areas and the counties that form it's MSA. CDMA data roaming on Verizon is just about dead and it's only used for voice now. AT&T LTE works, but once you cross certain county lines, you're SOL. Also, certain services/sites are blocked by Sprint (mostly videos).

Sprint should update it's data maps to better reflect the new LTE roaming agreement with At&t.

Did I miss something about Sprint having a roaming deal with ATT?  This is the first I have heard of it.  Is this nation wide or just in specific markets?

Is this in place of vzw or best choice for location?   And is it LTE only ie data or voice? 

 

Oh I assume limited to 250mb per month.

On most plans you will get cut off after 100mb. My brother on the way to New Mexico encountered roaming and managed to use 100mb and was cut off.

I may be wrong but I think it may sometimes take a day or 2 to tally up.

Nope still nothing. The first time I went up to Wausau was almost 1.5 weeks ago with LTE roaming, and now it's been over 24 hours since I was last on LTE roaming and still at 0. Both after using Cellcom and U.S. Cellular roaming data.

Tomorrow we're headed down to Prarie Du Chien and will be roaming from La Crosse until we get there. I'll recreate the experience again and see what I roam on... but still looking very promising as long as I stay off of Verizon!

I connect to att and data becomes unresponsive.... I've not been able to use any roaming LTE on at&t at all... It turns off soon as I connect. I finally went in and turned off roaming LTE ...

There's no map, but we do know that Sprint doesn't allow AT&T LTE roaming inside most major markets and the counties surrounding them. Sprint handsets just won't connect to AT&T in cities such as New York, Dallas, or LA. 

With Connecticut being so small, chances are that your county is too close to Hartford. You'll probably have to drive North into Vermont before you see any AT&T.

You’re usually looking at sub megabit speeds. That being said, pings are low and lightweight activities like web browsing work pretty well - miles better than Verizon roaming at least. Streaming video is usually a no go.

Verizon needs some help with their discounts system!

 

I thought this was too funny not to post.

Realistically, I'm curious about how soon after a merger is announced will we see them make it where TMO LTE is native for Sprint and vice versa

I hope someone will post it for us because I've had to turn off roaming LTE on my note 8... It kept finding band 17 before it would latch to band 41 magic box... So there's that

Snake.... don't you think they won't do any network openings until the Merger is finalized and "closed"... meaning complete?   

I'm not thinking they will immediately open LTE or any of their network for Sprint for  just "announcing" a plan to merge...   Just my thoughts..  I'd love it if they did, but I'm not feeling it...

Right after an announcement?  Not likely.  The FCC, FTC, and DOJ would have a field day.

Soon after a consent order?  Okay.

I thought that AT&T opened up their network soon after the announcement or their merger with T-Mobile. I could be wrong though... :). Maybe I am confusing it with the break up fee...

As soon as the merger is approved they will open up roaming on each other's networks.

I wonder how many current TMobile devices besides the obvious ones (Samsung GS and iPhones) support B25/26/41.

It seems that most modern Sprint devices have B4/12, so I wonder how well that will work.
