you wont get greater coverage. here is why:

1.att will have to divest spectrum in markets where the coverage is redudant with tmobile
2.att will dismantle tmobiles AWS service and replace tmobile's 3G with LTE. Tmobile coverage is effectively transformed into LTE footprint.

In conclusion if you are on tmobile your 3G phone will be rendered useless unless you have a quadband phone...(or you will have to buy an att phone) Your coverage in fact will decrease.

If you are with att, you will not get tmobile's coverage, you will get future LTE coverage but neither company offers lte phones.

What both customers will see is.... higher numbers in their bills Laughing
