Which US mobile operator you would recommend to others?

EU and many others phone users in USA will be subject to roaming charges when they are in visit (there are operators which did exceptions but it must be checked, we are well aware how those mistakes can be costly).


Growth in the US mobile subscriber base remains strong, with a penetration rate of about 127%. Declining revenue from voice services is compensated for by high growth in mobile data use, itself supported by upgraded networks based on LTE technologies. Smartphone penetration is also high, which had encouraged mobile data use among subscribers. The major operators, led by AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile US, have partnered with vendors to trial 5G technologies and services and will be expanding their commercial services into 2019 or 2020. In addition, operators are working on the potential of NB-IoT, LTE-U and LTE-A technologies, in some respects as complementary technologies supported by 5G.

The transition to 5G is expected to generate a windfall for network, infrastructure, and equipment vendors. Gartner predicts that worldwide 5G network infrastructure revenues will touch $4.2 billion in 2020, recording year-over-year growth of 89 percent.

US telecoms are increasingly using unlimited-data plans to attract and retain customers. With 5G coming into the picture, providers will be able to increase both download speeds and monthly data capacity on unlimited plans.
