THANK YOU...SAY IT AGAIN FOR THOSE THAT DIDN'T HEAR YOU RIGHT THE FIRST TIME! METRO IS BIG HERE IN DETROIT...IF SOME PEOPLE DID A WEE BIT OF RESEARCH THEY WOULD RECOGNIZE THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A REGIONAL CARRIER AND AN MVNO ๐Ÿคจ

Why would an MVNO be in need of a $1.5 billion loan to increase capacity? I love Metro by the way. They're by far the best wireless company I've done business with (and I've done business with them all).

They are NOT using other carriers networks on the West Coast. They do have roaming agreements just as Sprint, Verizon, T-Mobile, and AT&T do.

Roaming agreements would mean they're using other companies towers in various areas. ๐Ÿ˜ฒ

Every company out there roams on another company at some point. MetroPCS and Cricket routinely share networks in many areas since they rarely overlap.

Stating that they "use other companies towers" implies that they have no native coverage.

Yes they Do! I worked on the cell sites that metro uses,That does belong to another carrier. (That was 2 years ago,& I am not sure if that is still the case.)

Please read your statement and think about what you said.

P.S. Roaming means using another carriers network.

MetroPCS is deploying LTE in its current PCS 1900 MHz and/or AWS 2100+1700 MHz licensed spectrum. This is different from VZW, which is deploying LTE in new Upper/Lower 700 MHz spectrum. Additionally, as MetroPCS has to share this spectrum w/ its CDMA1x & EV-DO deployments, MetroPCS is using small bandwidth LTE channels, probably 1.4 MHz, the smallest standardized bandwidth. Conversely, VZW is most likely using 3, 5, or 10 MHz bandwidth LTE channels.
