Not trying to argue with you by any means, but....
T-mobile was the first company in the US to have the foresight to see into the future and switch to GSM back in the late 90's. That's when they were called Voice Stream. Then they changed their name to t-mobile and emerged as the first and only GSM network at that time.
Their speeds, coverage, and service are truly great.
The home area is defined by coverage in that area as opposed to the time they set up their networks there.
I think it's to early to be upset at either company since as Gman pointed out that the merger is only about 75% complete, so not everyone will fully benefit yet.
I'm sure Detroits service will improve in due time.
