See how your data and tests affected Fastest Mobile Networks 2014

Any regular readers will know that we partnered with PCMag and Sensorly recently to help them collect network performance and coverage data from T-Mobile users. Put simply, all you needed to do was download the Sensorly app for your phone and start testing. Results were fantastic, and in some areas, T-Mo tests outweighed others so much it was difficult to make comparisons.

As a result, Sensorly now has a more up to date, and thorough map showing actual coverage in cities, towns and roads in the US than before. What you should be able to see below is an embedded map which shows T-mobile’s current LTE coverage. Not only that, but, you can select to see what kind of speeds people are getting in those locations using T-Mo’s super-fast mobile network.

If the map isn’t showing any coverage or results for your specific location, and you know there’s 4G coverage there, the best way to rectify it is to submit your own results. Data isn’t provided by T-Mobile, but, by real-life T-Mobile users who perform tests. It’s completely crowd-sourced. Meaning, if you want a more realistic look at how T-Mobile’s coverage is in specific locations, this is one of the best ways of checking that (presuming there are people in those locations performing tests).

    I have been using sensorly app for close to three weeks now and added new areas to showcase the coverage map of T-Mobile.

        I will be making road trips to fully light up the sensorly app this whole summer

    Wow, that Sensorly post is me.

    Madison, then to E.Madison to County Rd left to Spring St.

    That’s in Cresskill, NJ.

    Been using it as well. Noticed my area had zero reports in my route to work and kids school. Now I have helped fill in that area. I hope T-mobile sees that I really get crappy service at my home and other areas on my route. That away they can upgrade that area.

    Looks like a mailman was carrying a Sprint phone in my area. LOL!

    You can tell when only one or two people have been logging an area, it’s a bit creepy because you can trace their movements – though they are, of course, anonymous.

    Slightly disconcerting to see the only TM logging in my neighborhood actually centers directly on my house…LOL!

    This is why I love Sensorly. I mapped my whole home city. Lol been using Sensorly for over a year now

    Does Des Moines, IA not have 4G?

    • JMF_mobile

      We do but not LTE, sadly. We have only the slower HSPA 4G. I average 5-10 Mbps download speeds and 2-3 Mbps upload speeds. Did actually clock 12+ downtown this morning outside. Still anxiously waiting for LTE, as well as upgrade of Edge to LTE outside the metro.

      • Zander

        How do you like T-Mobile in Iowa? Do you travel Iowa a lot? I’ve been trying to get the wife to switch from US Cellular.

        • JMF_mobile

          I don’t travel much around the state, mostly just central Iowa and then over towards Cedar Rapids. Other than, Des Moines to Ames corridor., the rest of the state is covered by their affiliate company – I-Wireless, who do a good job of providing voice coverage even in real small towns but data coverage is never more than 2G/Edge, which I can live with. T-Mobile 4G coverage in Des Moines area is good so happy with that where I live and work. There have been very few places I’ve ever been around country where there is no coverage at all, I work with several people downtown who have Verizon but their network is so congested that even though they’re LTE, their speeds are more like Edge and my non LTE speeds are 2 or 3 times as fast as theirs.

          Sadly to say that Everywhere around Iowa is lit with LTE and not a single LTE tower lit in iowa. like he said only the slower portion of HSPAP is active and lots of 3G connections. im in Des Moines too and where i work only do i get a solid HSPAP speeds over 20 megs in Ankeny

        • JMF_mobile

          West Des Moines good too but Southern extreme of metro still weak.

    Sensorly is awesome!I use it while

    T-Mobile 4GLTE in my Atlanta neighborhood (Brookhaven/Chamblee area inside the perimeter) just took a huge jump in the past week or so. In the weeks before 2014_06_07 I was averaging around 9Mbps download and 4Mbps upload. On 2014_06_07 all the numbers doubled. I’ve seen small increases everyday since then as well. My latest tonight (2014_06_13) shows 33.7 down and 11.7 up.

    That means I’m getting better results from T-Mobile 4GLTE than from Comcast Cable (Comcast results tonight: 28.17 down and 5.84 up – I think we have the ‘performance’ package).

    In the heart of Midtown Atlanta I checked with Sensorly on 2014_05_22 and T-Mobile registered a 51.92 down 14.78 up. I’m glad to see faster speeds arriving out this way.

    Is there any way to find out what network projects or cell tower improvement projects are underway in one’s area?

      I love tmobile’s network in Atlanta too but in Atlanta by the capital. Where I live I don’t get no signal in my community.

  • My tests probably make up the majority in Spokane WA. They really need to improve their LTE speeds here.
