I switched from T-Mobile to Google Project Fi, and I’ve been amazed at the coverage I get as I travel. (It uses three networks: T-Mobile, Sprint and US Cellular. An app I got shows that I’m getting Sprint when I go outside T-Mobile areas.)
I read on non-RW sites that the Moto e4 uses GSM and CDMA. Now I read here that the Moto e4 on RW only has GSM until sometime later. Losing Sprint coverage will make my decision to switch to RW harder.
I’ve heard that non-T-Mobile customers get “lower priority” for data than customers. Maybe that’s wrong. Anyway, it’s calls that I care about. So here are my two questions, thanks:
I read on the forum that, back in August '17 at least, the RW coverage map shows only GSM. I don’t see any indication on the map, today, whether it’s GSM-only. Since the Moto e4 only does GSM now, does this map show roughly what coverage I’ll get? BTW, I usually use my phone outdoors or in my car, so things like building walls blocking high-frequency GSM won’t matter much. (Thanks to the member who posted about that somewhere.)
I’ve found mentions here about RW coverage “optimized for my area”. Because I travel a lot, usually in a car, what is “my area” and what do I get if I’m outside of it?
