I think this is great news. I am an AT&T customer with an iPhone, which does not work in the small town where I live. They have terrible coverage here and have refused to build the necessary tower here to cover my small town. T-Mobile, on the other hand, has great coverage here with towers all over the county, but AT&T cannot roam on their system. So on a purely coverage basis, this will be great for me and the people here. Neither AT&T or T-Mobile has 3G or 4G coverage anywhere in my part of the state, so I will not be holding my breath on that part of the deal. The closest 3G is 35 miles away and the closest 4G is T-Mobile and 100 miles away.
