In a recent auction hosted by the FCC, T-Mobile won a large chunk of the 1700MHz and 2100Mhz band, which is used 3G data communications. T-Mobile grabbed up 120 bids covering 474 million people, which means they have multiple spectrums covering the super-urban areas, where coverage is spottier thanks to more obstructions.
