AT&T and T-Mobile Forge Temporary Roaming Pact
AT&T and T-Mobile today announced that they have temporarily agreed to allow their customers in New Jersey and New York to roam onto one another's networks. Subscribers in these states, which were heavily impacted by Hurricane Sandy, will be able to make calls from their cell phones on whichever network is available or stronger. Customers need to take no action and can simply make calls as normal. This Is possible in part because both networks use the same GSM and HSPA networking technologies in the 1900MHz spectrum band. The FCC recently noted that about 25% of cell sites in the impacted area are non-functional.
