T-Mobile today indicated it is working with other carriers to offer LTE roaming. T-Mobile competitors Sprint and Verizon Wireless have aggressively pursued rural LTE roaming deals, which has in turn increased their LTE availability. T-Mobile has been slower to make such agreements, and it lacks coverage in many rural locations. T-Mobile's director of business development, Heather Stacey, said the company is weighing the Competitive Carrier Association's data roaming hub and/or making a bilateral roaming arrangement directly with another carrier. Stacey admitted that both technical and business issues (i.e., cost) have slowed T-Mobile's progress on roaming agreements. Nevertheless, T-Mobile expects to have at least some LTE roaming agreements in place before the end of the year. Such agreements will expand the availability of LTE service to T-Mobile's customers.

Need to work on other things

Like deploying Band 12 spectrum and releasing more devices that support it, so the days of bad signal can be over.
Did you just say something bad about the golden child? Die.
