These days (unfortunately, in a lot of ways) it's about the hardware.

    Yet another LTE choice in the top 25 markets. I couldn't care less. I can't wait to ignore the forthcoming ads of a service I won't have in my area probably forever. Why upgrade rural area service when there is 5g to consider, then 6g then 7g.

    That's a pretty big ****up indeed. Good for Tmobile, whether it was because they were super sneaky or equally overconfident.
