T-Mobile, for all its cheeky promotions and positive speed tests, still has a coverage problem. Compared to AT&T and Verizon, T-Mobile's network mostly runs on higher-band spectrum that's bad at penertrating buildings or giving coverage over rural areas.
To address the issue, T-Mobile spent $8 billion on new low-band spectrum earlier this year. The new 600MHz frequnecy that it bought is being freed up by moving analog TV stations onto different channels, a process that the FCC suggested would take about four years. But for T-Mobile, that's three years too long.
