T-Mobile Statement: In general for nomads seeking nationwide coverage, we currently consider T-Mobile's coverage to be ranked behind Verizon and AT&T, and not suitable as a primary carrier. However, their plans do make a suitable secondary back-up option. T-Mobile is on a fast track to expanding their network, and they are the carrier to watch right now.
