    I see San Diego made the list. Hopefully they added some band 12 love over at Coronado Island and 32nd street. Signal on base was 1 bar LTE if that.

      Man, you’re not the only who is wishing for this. I think we have a better chance of hitting the lotto than getting decent LTE coverage in Coronado. It would be nice if they told us precisely “where” in San Diego this deployment took place.

    Poor Panama City…just got demolished :(

      Guess it will have to be re-deployed

  • Dan

    Can the jersey shore get some 71 love? super congested down here in the summer months from all the tourists. Sometimes unusable data speeds. We’ve had refarmed band 4 for like over 4 years same 5×5 30mbps down since the launch of the iPhone 6.

    I’m not sure what they’re smoking. I spent a day in one of the towns listed (population 500) as supporting 600mhz and the reception was close to non-existent. Could hardly use my brand new Xs. :(

    • James Smith

      Whatever they are smoking it must be good. Their coverage is still a joke and always will be. At least until they get serious and triple their capex and stop offering free crap.

    • none

      A lot of the time, carriers like to deploy new LTE sites, and it takes a while to provision them, so, you might need to wait a few days for them to be provisioned(it’s a software thing, basically, making sure it integrates with the network and doesn’t cause problems for other towers or phones).

      Also, when did you visit? It’s possible you visited before that specific town had the coverage….
