Coverage on Solavei Wireless
Thinking of joining Solavei and curious about coverage on Solavei Wireless? The coverage on Solavei Wireless is one of the most frequently asked questions in regards to joining Solavei. People like the idea of an Unlimited Talk, Text and 4G Data plan for $49 a month, but what if the coverage on Solavei isn’t any good? Let’s talk about the coverage on Solavei Wireless and T-Mobile, Solavei’s Network Service Provider, to determine whether switching your wireless service to Solavei makes sense…or not. My background in the telecom industry is pretty extensive, so I want to describe how the cell phone networks evolved briefly. It’s important to realize how cellular networks started out in the early days to some degree, because it is related today in regards to coverage on Solavei Wireless and T-Mobile, Solavei’s Network Service Provider.
Cellular Coverage in the Early Days
I got in the wireless business back in 1995 when things were clearly much different then. There were no data plans, unlimited anything, and cellular calls were VERY expensive. My first mobile phone bill was $700!! But…I was cool! 🙂 The phones were massive, heavy, and looked ridiculous! The batteries lasted about 30-60 minutes of talk time, and they needed to be replaced often. The initial technology was analog towers, not digital transmission as you see these days so busy signals were common since they couldn’t conduct many phone calls, and the number of towers was very limited. This equipment is still important to Verizon, Sprint, and US Cellular because their networks utilize the CDMA network (Code Division Multiple Access) and their coverage early on was tied to the analog towers. That is why these networks frequently function better in really rural areas since the analog towers constructed in those smaller markets to provide service are still used now to some extent.
The Emergence of AT&T Wireless
AT&T Wireless emerged from a consolidation of a number of companies several years back that operated on GSM Equipment, which stands for Global System for Mobile. We started selling GSM with the Bellsouth corporation in my area, which then changed names to Cingular Wireless, & SunCom and of course now AT&T which has a massive network of GSM towers. 75% of the world uses GSM technology because it’s all digital, handles a sizeable amount of calls, and a tremendous platform for facilitating data transmission. The last of the big 4 Wireless carriers, T-Mobile, got started several years ago focusing on the bigger metropolitan markets with a hip logo & creative, cool commercials. T-Mobile created their own network in the bigger cities, but also partnered with AT&T with a National roaming arrangement in the event their users roam off of their tower infrastructure. The same is true of AT&T in that AT&T uses T-Mobile for a back-up provider for their subscribers in a reciprocal manner. You see back in the 90’s money was flowing in for the cellular companies to the point it was a technology/Wall Street frenzy to capitalize on the original progression of the cellular industry. The amount of money invested and wasted on telecommunication providers was insane looking back, but at the end of the day, all the wireless networks reached the masses.
Why Has Cellular Coverage and Network Expansion Slowed?
Things have changed now that the networks are primarily developed, and the money for infrastructure has dried up. Cellular phone communication is a commodity. Every person you see has a cellphone, and the wireless carriers compete for your business dependent for the most part on price or coverage in rural markets. Coverage is no longer an issue for ANY service provider unless you’re prone to nitpick, and I’m just being very candid here. Of course, if you reside in a secluded area and have zero signal by all means connect with a cellular carrier that works for you. Verizon did a tremendous job advertising “Can You Hear Me Now?” years ago, and that commercial still sticks in everyones mind. Again, coverage on Solavei is NOT an issue except if you live or travel often to extremely rural areas. A rule of thumb I’ve always used is if there are people that live there, you will have cellular phone coverage.
Coverage on Solavei in the Future and in Remote Locations
Coverage on Solavei Wireless will be much better in rural markets very soon with the evolution of LTE, and in-building coverage problems won’t be an issue as well. Conversely, if you can’t find a carrier that has signal at all or limited…trust me on this…get Google Voice like I did and you will ALWAYS have signal through your high-speed internet connection. My coverage on Solavei wireless and T-Mobile is awesome for me. I receive 4G Data in Birmingham, AL where I live and its incredibly fast. T-Mobile doesn’t quite have the 4G Data infrustructure as Verizon or AT&T, but they will as their overall subscriber base is growing on their network with the addition of new prepaid companies such as Solavei Wireless. These prepaid companies work best with GSM technology like T-Mobile and AT&T because Sim card technology eliminates a lot of headache when it comes to transferring your phone over to the new carrier.
Who is Affected by T-Mobile’s Growth in Marketshare?
Verizon is touting their LTE Network right now because they KNOW trouble is looming in the near future. Verizon has approximately 100 Million customers, and my opinion of them has always been one of arrogance to be honest. That is sincerely the impression they have always given off to me, especially as a client. Verizon knows LTE is the death of “Can you hear me now”. LTE, Long Term Evolution, basically takes a wireless tower with a range of 5-20 miles and makes that coverage expandable to a reach of 60 miles! Also, the data speeds on LTE are 30-40 Megs per second which is incredibly fast! T-Mobile is increasing their LTE network as we speak, and they will have it all over the country within a year. Verizon is aware this and why they are marketing LTE so hard to lock people into 2 year contracts. LTE will reach smaller markets, and the GSM carriers will see a huge spike in revenue. The prepaid carriers will continue to take customers away from Verizon, AT&T and Sprint in droves. Its happening folks…right now! T-Mobile is the leader of the Big 4 in prepaid sales, and they are also very aggressive with signing new prepaid network providers such as Solavei Wireless. It just makes sense that the more people on their network, the better they are financially.
So What Does All this Mean for Coverage on Solavei?
The coverage on Solavei Wireless is already great in my opinion. In 2013 T-Mobile will add new towers with the new LTE network features already added, and the coverage on Solavei will only get better. T-Mobile already reaches 220 million People where they live today, and that number will expand drastically in the next year. Expect to see T-Mobile grow their subscriber base substantially because of the demand for cost effective cellular plans. You can also anticipate Verizon and AT&T to lose net subscribers as they did last year, while spending billions of dollars a year on advertising! Timing is great for joining Solavei Wireless. To me its the biggest “no-brainer” to save money on your wireless phone bill, and be part of the Solavei community. We’re having a great time, and we’ve added over 100K subscribers since Solavei Wireless launched in September 21, 2012.
