T-Mobile Rolls #BallBusterChallenge into Montana

February 08, 2016

Kalispell & Missoula, MT — February 9, 2016 - Today the Uncarrier™ is popping up in Kalispell and Missoula, Montana to debunk Verizon’s year-old network claims and highlight new LTE coverage areas.

Last year, T-Mobile began rolling out Extended Range LTE, which carries our LTE signal 2x farther from the tower and 4x deeper into buildings than before to Montana destinations like Anaconda, Boulder, Butte, Columbia Falls, Deer Lodge, Dillon, East Helena, Hamilton, Helena, Kalispell, Libby, Missoula, Polson, Ronan, Stevensville, Thompson Falls, Three Forks, Townsend and Whitefish.

In 2015, T-Mobile more than doubled its LTE coverage footprint, adding nearly 1 million square miles of new 4G LTE coverage and now covers 304 million Americans - 97% the number of customers that Verizon does, while delivering the fastest 4G LTE network in the nation. Meanwhile, Verizon’s network virtually stood still in comparison.

Now, Verizon customers in Kalispell and Missoula will have the chance to see for themselves if their network is actually better and win $100 if they can prove it. If they lose, they’ll pose for a photo with a network sign of shame, with options like “T-Mobile’s just busted Verizon’s network myth #BallBusterChallenge,” and “T-Mobile’s network was just as good as Verizon’s #BallBusterChallenge” (but we’ll toss in a consolation prize for playing).

Join our Challenge Team for a chance to win $100 at:

  • 9:45 a.m. MT in Kalispell at the Kalispell Center Mall along US 93 and Center Street
  • 2:30 p.m. MT in Missoula at Caras Park and near the corner of Higgins & Front Street

You can also follow along in social at #BallBusterChallenge or @TMobile.


Capable device required for Extended Range LTE; not available some areas. See T-Mobile coverage map for details.
