    In Ocala FL, I now have service inside my job, had none last time I checked. No longer depend on the wifi.

  • TW1ST3D R3DN3CK

    my citys on the list and i STILL have to have a T mo mini tower just to get signal

    • Buildings can cut off service even band 12. I’ve experienced it 2 weeks ago and was shocked but older buildings and some new are built thick sometimes

      • TW1ST3D R3DN3CK

        this is B S that you guys Will not improve the signal. ATT and virgizon have PERFECT signal!! i turned off the mini tower and i had NO BARS inside or OUT! its really bad when you leave and you have 0 bars between your house and the T mo store.really need to build a tower or something here in Granbury closer to my area.

        • You have to have a capable phone too. If you have a old phone your not going to get as good cover. I’m glad I have a Samsung and can scan for bands if the other ones aren’t around.

        • TW1ST3D R3DN3CK

          i have a moto G7 Power so its brand new

        • marque2

          Samsung seems to have slightly more sensitive antennas – even on their mid range phones than LG or Moto anyway.

        • SirStephenH

          All phones will connect to the best band at a location.

          Any mid to high end Android phone should have good reception. Just avoid iPhones which are notoriously finicky, especially on GSM networks like T-Mobile and AT&T.

    • SirStephenH

      This is a mid-band capacity announcement. Low-band is required for coverage so you won’t see an improvement unless T-Mobile opens a new cell site near you. Higher mid-band capacity means higher speed, not coverage.

  • monkeysoup

    I wonder why Colorado very rarely makes the list. Even when it does, it’s only a town or two.

    • Jared

      I was wondering the same thing. I’m in 80129. Can’t wait for B71!

      • slybacon

        It looks like the Denver metro area won’t be clear of all TV channels until May of 2020. KETD is the last channel.

        • Jay Holm

          Mmmmm…..I thought T-Mobile is working with these slow, procrastination tv stations to vacate the spectrum?

        • slybacon

          Some. The salt lake valley is completely covered in band 71 now. Our channels vacated in phase 1 which ended 11/1/2018.

        • SirStephenH

          Some, but T-Mobile can’t force stations to vacate early when they don’t want to, there’s no point if there’s even one holdout, and T-Mobile won’t do it if the stations ask for too much.

      • Jay Holm

        It’s frustration that this is June of 2019, and not a whole lot of B71 announcements. I’m in the Houston, Tx area.

    • Trevnerdio

      I’m moving there eventually and would love to see them improve some. They were pretty solid on my trip, except on the way up to Estes Park. I think they claim coverage all the way up the mountain, but nope. 0, zilch, nada, for a solid 15 minutes or so.

    • SirStephenH

      There’s a lot of open sparsely populated/unpopulated space in Colorado. It makes sense that an area like that, which would have far fewer cell sites, would come up less often than areas with a higher population and a higher number of cell sites.

  • Cedar City Utah has supposedly been getting upgrades but it’s not slated to be done until June 8. We’ll see if coverage improves. Using a OnePlus 7 Pro so do get all of the bands

    • slybacon

      They finally added LTE (not sure of the bands, other than it showed up on older iPhones last time) out on I-80 heading to Wendover. I never saw those towns on these lists, but finally LTE the whole drive from SLC to Wendover.

  • Raiterio Patterson

    All of those BFE cities in North Carolina being updated!

    • Ditto in PA. Wow.

    • Trevnerdio

      Many of them are Raleigh ‘burbs though.

      • Raiterio Patterson

        Suburbs? Makes sense. I grow up outside Charlotte so I think everything not a major city is BFE

        • Trevnerdio

          Lol grew up in a city with a metro area of like 70k tops (over like 3 cities and a couple of towns), so I can’t really relate there.

          But also be happy these BFE places are being upgraded! That’s where T-Mo has always struggled. Once you see nothing but trees, it’s always historically been bad news bears.

  • emcdonald75

    I wish Verizon had a website that shows new cell sites being upgraded or installed. In my office, I received one bar of service earlier this year, but four months later, I receive 5 bars now. The problem is in downtown Jackson, MS, I get data speeds of 10Mbps or below (mostly below) even with 5 bars of service. There was a time I received 75Mbps or greater in my office and at my home (now 37Mbps). What gives Verizon? You are supposed to be the greatest. If T-Mobile actually covered MS instead of spots here or there, then I would switch back.

    • Sharti24

      Yeah Tmobile sucks in MS. Tmobiles coverage map shows no/very little coverage at naval station Meridian. I dont think tmobile owns any 700mhz there (i believe c-spire owns the A block spectrum in the state)

      I looked up sprints coverage map for the base and it has perfect coverage there.
      Hopefully the merger goes through so tmobile can use their towers

    • Gia Spinetti@ #RealSouthPhilly

      No one cares what tf you have or if you switch back or not.

  • Mark

    Yet again no Sacramento, CA. Coverage in almost the entire city is horrible. Where I live 2mbps is a good result. And in West Sacramento coverage is almost non-existent.

    • JStatt

      If that’s where you live why not change carriers until they have better coverage?

      • Mark

        2 lines for $100 promo. Don’t really want to give that up even if the coverage sucks.

        • JStatt

          But what’s the point of paying for it if 2mbps is a good result? If that were true you are paying $100 for nothing.

        • Sharti24

          Try Cricket?

      • marque2

        It would be better to just move

  • still no stcloud/kissimmee.. one of the busiest and tourist infested areas of the world cannot get an upgrade ?

  • edelaney61

    Still no upgrades in Missouri especially St Louis…..Why get a smart phone with all the capabilities and never be able to take advantage of them.
