    So around here, T-Mobile has poor coverage in the rural areas and Sprint has terrible data everywhere, sounds like a losing situation to me.

    T-Mobile is fine around me. If I go to NW Indiana, it's terrible. Sprint is terrible by me.

    I hear that Sprint is good in San Francisco, but generally bad around the Bay Area. T-Mobile is only slightly better here.

    My primary line is Verizon Wireless because it works in the places I go. I have a Project Fi line I use to keep up with T-Mo coverage. Since Fi uses T-Mo and Sprint, it's a pretty good indicator how things would be if they merge. In the places T-Mo does not work, Sprint is no better.

    The Pixel 2 is perfect for this setup. My SIM card is Verizon and the eSIM is Fi. I can easily switch between the two from within Android Settings.

    I wonder if the merged company will continue to support CDMA.

    My guess is they will support CDMA only as long as they have to to convert all customers to GSM.
