  • T-Mobile adds $5 LTE international data pass as free roaming spreads

The report found that mobile download speeds improved by more than 20 percent year over year to an average download speed of 27.33Mbps. "With T-Mobile ONE, you just take your phone with you - turn it on as usual and it works - no worrying over your wireless bill, just enjoy your family time and see the sights!" Speaking specifically about the Ookla report, Verizon VP of network operations Mike Haberman said that Verizon " was the fastest in almost half of the 100 cities Ookla examined-fastest in more cities than any other wireless provider by a wide margin", and that "Verizon Wireless has the fewest gaps", and offers "coverage in areas where other carriers do not".

Today (July 18) is turning out to be a good news day for T-Mobile, as it captured five of the seven awards in Open Signal's latest report on cellular network performance, including 4G download speeds.

Mike Haberman, Verizon's Vice President of Network Operations, said Verizon believes it's the clear victor in Ookla's report. That's at least 5 Mbps, Ookla says. It will be interesting to see if other carriers try to challenge T-Mobile or match the new pricing. The results are pulled from more than 12 million tests run by consumers on around 2.8 million mobile devices. Wyoming had the slowest average data speeds. Sprint also said it plans to add more cell sites and small cells, and deploy Massive MIMO to launch mobile 5G in the first half of 2019.

Video shows Georgia waitress take down diner for groping her
A man who thought it'd be A-OK to grab a waitress' butt found out otherwise in a very painful way - specifically the viral way. It's a slightly unorthodox way to go about it, but so far, she has raised over $6,500, so it's definitely working.


Verizon, however, caught up to T-Mobile to tie for the lead in 4G availability, while AT&T again led its rivals in 4G latency.

Some people will probably be aggreivated at the extra step required to go buy a pass just to use normal-speed data overseas, but the safeguard means that you won't be hit with accidental data roaming charges, which have always been a problem for travellers on postpaid plans. PCMag's testing is much more urban-focused. According to OpenSignal, both Verizon and T-Mobile provided an LTE connection to 93.7% of users during the test. Verizon does still offer LTE in more places compared to T-Mobile.
