I've seen the commercials. Verizon is only comparing the 4G LTE networks of all 4 national carriers. They're not comparing 3G networks, since those are different technologies (Verizon with EVDO, based on CDMA, while T-Mobile uses a variation of W-CDMA, which works along side GSM). T-Mobile will actually have to prove that Verizon is talking about 3G & 4G to have a cease & desist. Otherwise, T-Mobile won't have a case. Since Verizon is only talking about LTE (everyone is going that path), T-Mobile doesn't have a case. They have spectrum to cover all 50 states, & for the regional licenses that they have in the AWS band, they're simply going to ignore most rural markets, like they've done with GSM for where they hold PCS licenses. Verizon is building out in most rural markets (mainly in lower band frequencies), & can prove that they have coverage in nearly every area that they already have CDMA coverage. Eventually, they'll have coverage in areas where they'll be LTE only (meaning where they never built out in CDMA, or acquired a carrier that never built out in CDMA or GSM).
