Seattle, WA — January 27, 2016 (6:00AM)
Today Un-carrier™ takes its #BallBusterChallenge to Downtown Seattle and the Seattle Center to demonstrate the current state of the T-Mobile network and debunk Verizon’s year-old network claims. The Seattle challenge comes on the heels of a day spent showing Verizon customers in the San Juans just how far the T-Mobile network has grown.
Last year, T-Mobile more than doubled its LTE coverage footprint, adding nearly 1 million square miles of new 4G LTE coverage to cover 304 million Americans - 98% 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 Seattle 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 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).
Local Verizon customers and media alike can take the #BallBusterChallenge by meeting Team Magenta in downtown Seattle and the Center at the following locations and times:
- 9:00 AM – 11:30AM: Corner of 6th Avenue & Olive St. 1633 6th Ave, Seattle, WA 98101
- 12:00 PM – 2:30PM: Near the Space Needle. The Challenge team will be roving along Broad Street and Denny Way.
