However, after T-mo refarms all their spectrum, that will no longer be true.
Charlie69 blames GSM for the lack of building penetration. But correct me if I am wrong, is it not the frequency that is used the biggest factor in building penetration (not GSM vs CDMA)?
Frequency is what really makes a difference. The 800 band usually does better at penetrating buildings than 1900 does or AWS. 1900 takes more towers to cover the same area as 800.
