That all sounds fine and good, but the fact of the matter is that T-Mobile is the last major U.S. carrier to get an LTE network. I've been using a T-Mobile smartphone for a long time, and frankly its network coverage has never been up to snuff compared to AT&T or Verizon, at least where I live and work. If Sickinger is correct and its network provides a better LTE experience, people will forget about its delay to market soon enough. But the jury is still out on that front.
