    Probably not contracting.... but is tMobile adding new areas to it's network, or
    just sort of riding on what it's got now?

    I thought T-Mobile operated exclusively on the 1900Mhz Band.

    Per Cyrus Afzali:
    >The general trend has been enhancing existing coverage areas,


    Any idea how much area a single cell tower covers?

    One of the things I've been wondering about is why they don't do building
    complexes.

    I'm a contractor and have done work for a couple of clients where there are
    thousands of people in just a few buildings (2,000 where I'm working now, close
    to 8,000 on the last job) and some providers' phones work a-ok while others are
    all but useless - the result being that people are talking about how poor the
    faulty provider's coverage is in an enviroment where word travels...

    "Negative Buzz", if you will...

    Seems like a rational move would be to concentrate on situations like that -
    unless a single cell tower costs mils instead of thousands and covers square
    miles instead of meters....
