Since I have been having abysmal I started looking around to see if I could find when they might start refarming spectrum. Well I found this & I'm lazy so I'll just quote myself

EDIT: 20x20 will be the minimum. Proof- last paragraph It’s quickly official: T-Mobile and MetroPCS agree to merge — Mobile Technology News
