    I left Verizon because of poor signal at home. With Tmobile at home I have great signal and 4G service. Unfortunately coverage is not as good as Verizon in other parts of our area. When I changed our plan, the Tmobile store manager said the towers on Interstate 40 east of Asheville had been "wired for upgrading" and are waiting for the contractor that brings fiber optic cable to the towers. Don't know if this is correct or not but was wondering if anyone has any information on this. It would be great not to lose calls and data especially on the interstate hwy.

    Thanks for the reply. With Verizon we used a network extender at home because of the poor signal, unfortunately in the rural area we live in our internet is not reliable and calls were frequently dropped. I tried a booster/amplifier but the Verizon signal is so weak it did not work. With T-Moblie we are close to a tower and get great 4g service at home but signal in other parts of our area is not close to the coverage of Verizon. If T-Mobile would upgrade their 2g towers to 4g as their rep stated I believe we would get much better service.
