Verizon gets U.S. carrier exclusive for Pixel 3, but T-Mobile says it is the fastest for your Pixels14
Thanks to T-Mobile, we can now tell you that Verizon will once again have the U.S. carrier exclusive on the latest Pixel handsets. These will be the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, both expected to be unveiled tomorrow morning. T-Mobile let the cat out of the bag by disseminating a press release today, imploring those buying a new Pixel from Verizon to bring it over to T-Mobile for a better Pixel experience.
T-Mobile is taking advantage of a recent Speedtest.net survey showing that not only does it have the fastest 4G LTE network in the states, the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL both run fastest on T-Mobile. The nation's third largest carrier has been deploying the 600MHz low-frequency spectrum it paid $7.9 billion for during last year's FCC auction. These airwaves travel farther and penetrate buildings better than higher-frequency spectrum.
T-Mobile says that after you buy your new Pixel tomorrow from Verizon or Google, bring it to T-Mobile or Metro by T-Mobile to receive Un-carrier benefits like Netflix on Us for families, T-Mobile Tuesdays, and more.
