T-Mobile Takes the #BallBusterChallenge to Santa Clara

January 31, 2016

Santa Clara, CA — February 1, 2016 - Today the Uncarrier™ is going to show it is prepared for Sunday’s Big Game with the fastest 4G LTE network in Santa Clara, CA and debunk Verizon’s year-old network claims.

T-Mobile is already rocking in the Bay Area with leading data speeds and expanded LTE coverage last year. According to crowd sourced data from Ookla, T-Mobile now has the fastest 4G LTE in Santa Clara – with peak speeds in excess of 123Mbps in some areas.

In the last year, T-Mobile has more than doubled its LTE coverage footprint, adding nearly 1 million square miles of new 4G LTE coverage to cover 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 Santa Clara 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).

Beginning at 11:00 a.m. PT on Monday, February 1, our Challenge Team will be moving along the north side of Tasman Drive near Levi’s Stadium, starting near:

  • The intersection of Tasman Drive & Convention Center Street
  • The northeast corner of the Santa Clara Youth Soccer Park near the intersection of Stars & Stripes Drive/Tasman Drive
  • The team may show up at additional locations around the stadium as well!

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