  • Not 1 in SC danggg

  • Mike McDonald

    Newberry & Gwinn MI. Both eastern Yooper towns. Likely Band 71 expansion.

  • Keith

    Finally a bunch of Utah cities. I just checked cellmapper, sure enough, I now have band 71 at my house.

    • slybacon

      What city are you in? I’ve noticed a few areas with stronger signal between South Salt Lake and West Jordan.

      • Keith

        The tower is just west of I-15, hitting Springville, Mapleton, and Spanish Fork.

        • dcmanryan

          Nice. I’m in Salem so I’ll check at my house.

  • Lord GoFuckYourself

    Still nothing in Cocoa Beach FL and along the entire southern edge… fucking garbage.

    • SirStephenH

      You should already have band 12 there. Band 71 can’t be deployed in that area until after phase 7 (ends 01-17-2020) of the TV repack. The FCC set the repack schedule so blame them.

  • MisterListerSir

    So many people care so much…

    …and yet don’t seem to have a clue how this is being deployed.

    spectrum gateway, guys. Google it. You’ll find out when and where for each and every phase of the roll-out.

    Then you won’t have to rage about how you weren’t included in this one or that one…unless that’s the only reason you here, of course.

    • marque2

      No that won’t tell you anything. Phase 1 finished almost 3 months and I have yet to see anything in my Phase 1 town.

      • PC_Tool

        Well, one person cannot confirm. I guess that means it’s utterly useless for everyone…oh wait, that’s not how that works at all.

        • marque2

          Ok let me be blunt – tmobile has done nothing for Tucson and it isn’t merely my opinion.

          As i said those phases mean nothing – it just means all the TV stations have evacuated the area and Tmobile now has the option to upgrade.

        • PC_Tool

          So what you just posted…that makes rational, logical sense in your mind?

          “those phases mean nothing…”

          “it just means that…”

          Make up your mind? Or better yet; only post when reasonable.

          And my previous comment still applies. Tuscon does not equal the entirety of the area covered by these rollouts. You’ve apparently decided though, that based on your singular experience, that it applies to all. Logic and reason be damned, right?

        • marque2

          Ask SirShephenH who keeps beating me up over this. All the phases mean is that at the end of the phase all the TV stations will be off the 600mhz bandwidth.

          Tmobile will then come in and at their leisure put in 600mhz if they want to.

          I was under the false impression myself that Tmobile was actively installing 600mhz during the phase. That isnt true.

          As for your rant – we’ll if you are in the largest city in your state. You may get lucky – tmobile has added a lot to Phoenix nothing to Tucson (yes I know Tucson was in the last list – they may have added a tower in the metro just to add the name to the list.)

          So good luck to you and happy phone service.

        • marque2

          I should also note that, though I still can’t get service in my apartment I have noticed some recent improvements in Tmobile service. First a hotel I stayed in last year and this year in Phoenix, last year marginal service, this year very good. I just drove from San Diego to Tucson again, and unlike a month ago on the same trip, my Iheart radio stopped playing at AZ mile marker 53, instead of 33 – 20 miles with no iHeart vs almost 50 – I’ll take that, and for the first time ever the music didn’t stop when I drove through mountains from Jacamba springs, CA to Ocatillo, CA.Note that neither of these are “Phase 1” or “Phase 2” Though it could be just iHeart improved the buffering algorithm. But when I can drive all of I-8 with data, I will congratulate them.

        • PC_Tool

          I couldn’t make this up if I tried…

          tmobile has done nothing for Tucson

          they may have added a tower in the metro just to add the name to the list.

          That’s the second time you’ve directly contradicted yourself in this topic (that I’ve noticed).

          You are obviously disgruntled with your service. Hopefully you can understand how discussing it with you may leave one wondering what it has done to your ability to reason.

          Believe what you must; it should be rather obvious to you at this point that I, at the very least, hold no credibility in your statements whatsoever, so any further discussion is pointless.

        • marque2

          Dude you are being an ass. The whole point is Tmobile phases has nothing to do with when tmobile puts up band 12 or 71. And band 71 was not put up in my area when the phase 1 ended – maybe it will come soon, but now now. There was a claim on one of their lists that they added something, but my guess is they just improved one or two 700 mhz sites. This is not a contradiction.

          So if you think it is cute to badger me, I can tell you good luck turning on your phone and experiencing the wonders of band 71 the day after your area’s phase ends.

          You know there are apps and websites that will tell you the towers in your city and exactly what they are broadcasting. It isn’t hard to see Tmobiles lack of activity.

        • PC_Tool

          Your whole point originally, was that it meant nothing. Then you back-peddled. Suddenly it meant T-Mobile was off those frequencies.

          Tuscon had nothing done to it. Then maybe one tower.

          Seeing a pattern?

          The only one being an ass here is you. I’m just pointing it out.

          Have a great day.

      • SirStephenH

        Phase 1 finished TWO months ago. If you expect build outs to be magically completed in every square mile of newly deployable area just after the area has been opened up for deployment then you have another thing coming.

        • marque2

          I don’t expect anything any more. I was just letting the fellow above who had same misconceptions know that the phases and actual implementation arw two different things and the phase charts are basically meaningless.

          You can stop pickimg on me. Thanks.

        • SirStephenH

          That’s not what you were saying and you know it. The “fellow above” has a far better understanding of the phases than you and was actually doing something productive, unlike you. Go troll somewhere else.

        • marque2

          That is absolutely what I was saying. You just have a nasty habit of being a know it all, and know better than everyone and have a strong need to show it.

          I believe you. Tmobile is going to put in 600Mhz when they please, at their leisure, and it has nothing to do with phases. In fact, it is very apparent where I live that, that is what is happening proving your point.

          Oh and please consider my request again to stop picking on me. Thx.

    I have been being paid 86 dollars/hourly from operating an online work from my home… My acquaintance presented me which way she is averaging close to 4000 dollars per month by working a work she found from the internet… I have been very astounded and decided to go for it… Currently i feel very fortunate she revealed me this, and would tell about it to each person to try it out… Here is what i do> EYE.CA/ahN

  • What about Indiana?

  • JJ

    Is this the full list of all prior upgrades also?

    • Red

      No. I know of at least a few towns that aren’t on this list. This is just a list of the towns included in the irritating scrolling video from the tweet.
