T-Mobile ad attacks AT&T for having slow pipes

0. phoneArena 07 May 2013, 12:57 posted on

T-Mobile's latest commercial might not mention AT&T by name, but considering that the carrier has recently chosen to go head to head with AT&T in previous ads featuring Frankenstein and a man encased in ice, it seems apparent that it is the nation's second largest carrier that T-Mobile is depicting as having a slow moving, congested network...

Cool. I get unlimited everything and have for the last year and a half, and will continue to as long as I stay with my company.
If nothing else, what would I possibly have to gain by lying about that?

Sounds like a high end business account, not your average user account like the rest of us have. Big difference.

ok you are having issues with AT&T then, well let me tell you I was having the same problems a month ago, I was getting really low speeds on LTE but I called to AT&T and complaint for like 2 weeks and they fixed it and now I am getting faster speeds than T-mobile and yes I had both.

It is. Point is, people saying I'm lying and there is no way I have an unl everything acct for $0 a month, which is false.

Verizon's LTE will be done, this year. Good sir, can you please tell me when AT&T will be done? :)

That's interesting because on my one x+ in northern Virginia I consistently get 25 down on lte. But being as I live in Manassas I mostly have hspa+ where I don't get more than 8 and less than two mbps

I'm in a Top 125 market, and I get 3-9 Mbps on AT&T (No LTE), versus 20+ on T-Mo HSPA+. If I didn't have so many people on my account, I would be on T-Mo in a minute. Who knows when AT&T will get LTE in my town. They are too busy deploying to bustling metropolises like Corsicana, Texas and Warrensburg, Missouri.

Your arguments are misleading. If a corporation is paying for your plan, it shouldn't be compared to what the average Joe gets. I don't doubt your plan or that you've got it great, just don't think it should be compared to what T-Mobile is offering.

Simple truth is we don't have it sweet like you do and what ATT offers isn't better than what T-Mobile has. Coverage is locational, but plans aren't. I pay a great price for my unlimited, unthrottled T-Mobile plan and the coverage in my area is good. ATT couldn't match what I get, simple as that.

T-Mobile has unlimited calling period, landline, m2m, you name it. And again, T-Mobile definitely isn't as bad as you're claiming. It works perfectly in Chicago, even better than Verizon is certain parts of the city.

And oh please. AT&T gets phones a day before T-Mobile does. Big whoop.

T-Mo is late on bringing LTE yes, but covering 225 pops by the end of the year? That's impressive. And with LTE Advanced coming soon, T-Mobile will be blowing AT&T out of the water. LTE + 42mbps as back haul is a force to be reckoned with.

Funny thing is, when Verizon was bragging about their LTE network and AT&T just started, did you say the same thing as you did now back then? As time passes by, networks do get slower. But T-Mo to spend money on towers for more bandwidth is a positive side.

Point across: The money you save with T-Mobile when comparing their service is unmatched. Unlimited everything is $70, you can't go wrong with that.

T-Mobile dominates New York lol. And in Puerto Rico, it's sketchy. AT&T is the best over there though. Hopefully they beef up their network and expand coverage because being in the mountains with 1-2 bars isn't the best. :(

"but since this is a TMO vs AT&T debate it is irrelevant."

Do try to use proper punctuation.

I agree Aeires. I also find that people who argue in the manner od Droiddoes in his post are trying to show how cool they are with what they have when they are completely reliant on someone else.
There's no reason to get all up in arms about cell carrier advertising or phone manufacturers. Apple, et al. love to paint their products as the best in noticeably skewed ways.

You really like bullet points Droiddoes.
Unfortunately for you, it does not make you appear more intelligent.

I dont understand why Tmobile is ripping AT&T for something that they never had: coverage. Why dont Tmobile focus on their bottom dolar instead of using their dollars ripping a compant company thats better than them when it comes to phones, coverage, and overall quality

Maybe you should worry less about what TMO's focus should be and more on using proper grammar.

Maybe you should stop being a little girl Disneydad. You defend T-Mobile like its one of your kids. Jeradiah3 is simply pointing out the facts.

Thank you Ruckus!! Obviously "Disneydad" is living in a fantasy if he thinks that T-Mobile is actually making a splash in the mobile technology business

T-Mobile works great in the places I need it, and their HSPA+ really is just as fast as other company's LTE speeds. VZW may have the slightly faster speeds, but T-Mobile is no slouch.

Seriously T-Mobile, calling the iPhone 5 a revolutionary phone? How about these phones:
- HTC One
- Nokia Lumia 920
- Samsung Galaxy 4
- Samsung Galaxy Note 2
- Sony Xperia Z
These are true revolutionary phones.
