T-Mobile is improving rapidly. Previously I would drop to worthless 2G EDGE or GPRS when I drove in any direction away from the city limits. Now, most of those towers have been upgraded to LTE. T-Mobile still has issues with in-building coverage and fringe coverage in rural areas where AT&T will barely cover an area with 1 bar of 4G (T-Mobile will get No Service in these areas) but T-Mobile's much faster network and much better plans make this trade worth it in my opinion. I get the fastest speeds with T-Mobile in Tulsa (Verizon is a near second). If you need fringe coverage for voice (those really really rural areas in the sticks) I would choose Verizon. AT&T, US Cellular and Sprint are poor choices these days. Ranking networks on Speed I would rank them in this order 1. T-Mobile 2. Verizon 3. AT&T 4. US Cellular 5. Sprint Ranking networks on rural and in-building coverage in the sticks I would rank them in this order 1. Verizon 2. U.S. Cellular 3. AT&T 4. T-Mobile 5. Sprint If all things were equal on cost, Verizon would be the best choice but seeing as how they definitely aren't (T-Mobile's plans are a vastly better value) and how hard T-Mobile has been working in this area to improve their network and coverage (especially their rural coverage) they have earned my business.Was this review helpful to you?
We've been with US Cellular for 20 years but can't wait to switch! Signal strength... 1 on a good day! Low signal strength is a new problem but it's a huge problem. Seems to have worsen since March 25th storm or since latest Samsung upgrade. If anyone lives in the Berryhill area please let me know if you have the same issue and if not... .what carrier do you use?Was this review helpful to you?
Verizon has excellent service throughout the Tulsa area. With all other carriers their LTE speeds have slowed with time if you can connect to LTE at all (looking at you AT&T and Sprint). I nearly always have an LTE signal with Verizon and its always fast (6+mbps, usually around 10-30). Verizon has XLTE (AWS, band 4) near TU and I can actually use my phone at the stadium, (even when OU or OSU comes to humiliate us (I mean visit) and the stadium is full), with great speeds. I love the new VoLTE HD voice with my phone. It has improved their call quality tremendously, (which was my one major beef with them previously).Was this review helpful to you?

Ever since the 4G has popped up in our area the data coverage has slowed way down. My 3G is much faster than when I am on 4G. I can stream fine on 3G but when I move into 4G coverage I start to buffer to where I just give up on it.Was this review helpful to you?
Verizon does not service this area. However, they have a partner carrier who does, (Sprocket Wireless). Sprocket built out an LTE network that covers everywhere near the area with LTE and it is extremely fast (never less than 10mbps and always faster than everyone else). Coverage is great, I get service deep indoors and in large buildings (movie theater at the mall had 4 out of 5 bars of LTE). Sprocket has a great network and while I can't attest to the customer service our price plans (I'm a Verizon customer and have never dealt with sprocket), they can't possibly be any worse than US Cellular's customer service (the absolute worst), so I highly recommend Sprocket if you live in Muskogee and Verizon or Pioneer if you live elsewhere. Between Verizon, Sprocket and Pioneer Cellular, the whole state is covered with LTE for all of their customers.Was this review helpful to you?
Drops calls like it's hot! And data is s slow... bye-bye Sprint.Was this review helpful to you?
I have been with T-Mobile since 2006. Never any problems with the service and the CSRs are always helpful. Prior to T-Mobile, I was with Sprint from the late 90s through 2006. There was a deadspot that ran perfectly diagonal as far south as 71st and Lewis, running northeast around Sheridan up through Oolagah.Was this review helpful to you?
