Wouldn't it show a T-Mobile PLMN though? 311-490 is Sprint. 
No

No. That is T-Mobile LTE roaming.

Was 311-490 formerly Clearwire?

If you have Sprint it is most likely T-Mobile roam like home, they also roam on AT&T LTE now, but it can be throttled pretty slow.

It wasn't showing that I was roaming which is why I found it odd.

That's how they did T-Mobile roaming.

Not in my experience, I sometimes roam on B4 in my basement at work and it shows roaming, this time no such thing. Why would sometimes roaming on T-Mobile show roaming and other times not?

Could be AT&T LTE roaming as well.

Could be I guess, I only pulled up the debug screen thinking someone had a magic box as I didn't have VoLTE but that's quite possible. I have yet to ever roam on AT&T.

Next time it happens, grab the PLMN.

It's TMobile when you see B66 at 20x20 it's likely not att has they don't have a much aws spectrum as TMO and VZW. They had to give up some to T-Mobile under the failed merger

I've roamed on AT&T 20x20 b66 in my area before.

Correction #2: No, it is used for Virgin Mobile.

There is some areas that have it. Going by spectrum Omega att does not have it on Philly and if that area is anything like NYC all att bands are 10x10 or 5x5. I know up north in Minnesota att did acquire some more AWS spectrum so your area could have also. TMobile is only 10x10 in yours so that's even more possibly but Nationwide it's not.

According to https://www.mcc-mnc.com/ 311-490 is Sprint. 

This is just not my day 😂. I thought you typed 311-480. Yes, 311-490 is a Sprint PLMN. It's used for Virgin mobile. 

I really need to get some sleep.

Every 311-490 entry I have in my SCP log is T-Mobile roaming.

Mississippi has backed out of the NY-led antitrust suit and has signed on to back the DOJ deal. Looks like they got T-Mobile to agree to certain coverage requirements.

I wonder if Texas is next? Republicans control the state because of the rural Texas vote. Striking a similar deal for more rural coverage seems like a no brainier in order to solidify their rural voting base.

I believe the whole thing will go away if they promise to match Verizon's coverage in the whole US within 5 years.

I wonder how this would play into the DOJ settlement.

If this comes to pass, does all the Dish spectrum--and the associated new fourth wireless company--end up with AT&T?  Oops?

Seems like it does.   Not good!   Seems like perfect timing to help add another wrench into the Sprint T Mobile gears...  when does the nonsense stop?
