    I got to my office this morning in Bridgewater and noticed my signal seemed a lot stronger than usual - a full 6 bars inside the building instead of the usual 3 or 4. Did ATT turn on 850 in Somerset County? I also noticed that Cingular roaming is still not available here.

    Cingular is a skeleton of a network in Somerset because that area only shares with T-Mobile. Basically, there is no native Cingular there. I doubt turning on roaming on Cingular will help at all.

    I have noticed in the last couple of day's my signal strength has increased in some area's also. It is possible they have turned up 850 in area's of the state. :D

    Filling in coverage gaps is a continuous process. Some carriers just don't make a noise about it, since they are catching up. From what i heard ATTWS is mostly doing it where Cingular does not have a License.

    Most people think this is already their coverage. They are dead wrong, while it may not improve in their area; it is being done in other places.

    It makes sense that they keep building in area's that Cingular doesn't have coverage since if the merger goes thru, Cingular will need those area's, especially in area's like North Jersey, NYC, CA & NV so they don't need to roam as much and being AWE has the 850 in these area's the coverage will get better. And now that Cingular has finished there buildout and have talked about working on the weaker area's the stratagy is a good thing. And if the merger didn't go thru for some bad reason, then AWE will have the coverage anyhow for there customers. Either way it's a win win situation.

    ...."if the merger didn't go thru?" What a blasphemy!! We'd see Vodafone again trying to "bring their name across the atlantic".

    If the merger doesn't go through I don't see Cingular having any future whatsoever.

    Then Cingular will keep paying ATTWS roaming or continue w/ T-Mobile Network sharing. T-Mobile still keeps building but they have a lot to cover in rural places.

    I am just worried about the FCC & DOJ coming up with some boneheaded reason for not allowing it.

    Does the FCC have reason to stop the merger? and if they did then why?

    If anything they can claim that competition may be harmed. I don't see what other excuse they can come up with.
