Tuesday, August 7th, 2018

Two years ago, T-Mobile announced it would only have one cellular plan moving forward - the 'ONE' plan. That didn't last long, as the ONE Plus plan became available a few months later, along with a slew of add-on packages. Now the carrier is throwing another option into the mix, called 'T-Mobile Essentials.'

The new plan is $60/month for one line, $90 for two, and $15 per line for the next 3-6.

AT&T announces new 5G markets: Oklahoma City, Charlotte, and Raleigh

Friday, July 20th, 2018

AT&T has been aggressive with its 5G rollout plan to the point you might have 5G service in your area before there are even any 5G phones to buy. The company says about a dozen cities will have 5G by the end of the year, but it's being coy by drawing out the announcement. We had a few before, but now AT&T has announced three more: Oklahoma City, Charlotte, and Raleigh.

Previously, AT&T announced Dallas, Waco, and Atlanta as 5G cities.

New Ookla and OpenSignal reports agree that T-Mobile has the fastest LTE with Verizon close behind

Wednesday, July 18th, 2018

The big four US carriers (possibly soon to be the big three) are always arguing about who has the best network, but that's usually just marketing spin. Numbers don't lie, though, and both Ookla (owner of Speedtest) and OpenSignal have new reports that point to T-Mobile as the fastest, but Verizon is right on its tail.

Here are the average download speeds for both reports.

Speedtest

  • T-Mobile: 27.86 Mbps
  • Verizon: 26.02 Mbps
  • AT&T: 22.17 Mbps
  • Sprint: 20.38 Mbps

OpenSignal

  • T-Mobile: 21.57 Mbps
  • Verizon: 20.56 Mbps
  • AT&T: 15.08 Mbps
  • Sprint: 14.46 Mbps

Download speed isn't the only metric that matters, of course, but it's the one you'll see carriers throw around the most.

Before this announcement, T-Mobile offered free international roaming in 140 countries around the world.
