I live in a small area of about 250,000 people in the Golden Triangle ( Beaumont,Port.Arthur, Orange ,Texas and smaller suburb towns in between) about 90 miles east of Houston,Tx. My coverage is good in town ,but is less so where I work on the outskirts of Port Arthur near Sabine Pass. My aunt lives in a small country town of Hatfield, Arkansas population 409- nearest city is Mena , Arkansas about 11 miles from where she lives. She gets a great signal for T- mobile with 4 bars. I found this out when I evacuated for hurricanes in 2005 and 2008. I was really surprised because they get NO tv reception ota at all ,being near a mountain. I have had T mobile since early in the last decade and only dropped it for a few years, while I worked at the prison and they banned all cell phones, even in the outside tower pickets located out of the prison. I like the service and the cell phone plans for 4 phones and Unlimited data plans and the ability to use your cell phone as a hot spot. I only pay around $150.00 before taxes for 4 phones -unlimited data, talk, text. I love the Binge feature that allows you to use Netflix and Dishanywhere and it never even counts against your data usage. Would like to see DISH and T- mobile work together, as I see a synergy between the two ,but doubt it due to CEO egos in both companies.
