    As always, little to nothing (mostly nothing) for Colorado. :(

    • SirStephenH

      What do you expect for such a sparsely populated state? Colorado simply doesn’t have or need as many cell sites as most other states.

      • monkeysoup

        Sparsely populated? That’s not how I would describe Colorado. Besides, our population is nearly double that of our neighbor Kansas, which received massive upgrades over the last year or so. Plenty of smaller states are often on the list with updates as well.

        • g2a5b0e

          It’s the 37th most dense state in regard to populous. Look it up. I would call that sparsely populated.

        • NYC BOSCO

          I don’t get these coverage updates either,they been telling me for a year that my area was getting updated and I don’t see no improvement at all

        • NYC BOSCO

          I don’t know how much longer I will wait before I switch again

      • slybacon

        Utah is 41st on population density, yet the populated areas and many rural areas are covered in 600 MHz LTE. Check out Cell Mapper . net

    • marque2

      You’re not missing anything. These announcements are more hype than anything else.

      • James B

        Agreed. Makes it look like TMO is the only carrier improving their coverage.

    • Andrew Singleton

      B71 is coming to Denver/Boulder and red rocks just got a huge upgrade.

      • monkeysoup

        Where are you getting your info? I’ve seen nothing on either one.

        • slybacon

          Best info on Band 71 is googling “spectrum gateway 600 MHz”

        • Andrew Singleton

          (Speaking on my own behalf) employees can see if a tower is undergoing modernization or refarming. Teams also let us know of exciting or important improvements in our area so we can keep our customers updated!

      • Anthony

        What is B71?

        • monkeysoup

          Band 71 – 600 mhz

        • Jay Holm

          It doesn’t seem like the 600mhz spectrum is being deployed very rapidly, considering this is the 7th month of 2019. . .

        • slybacon

          It really hasn’t started in any of the front range of Colorado yet. Northern Utah is nearly blanketed with it now. Utah was part of Phase 1 of the repacking.

        • SirStephenH

          The FCC divided up the incumbent TV stations’ repack (moving to lower spectrum) into 10 phases with the last ending 07-03-2020. T-Mobile cannot deploy band 71 in areas where the phase has not been completed because the spectrum is still in use by TV. Even when it’s been cleared it takes months (3 at the very minimum) until a carrier has deployed and tested enough sites in order to turn at least some of it on. Colorado specifically was in the 2nd (ended 04-12-2019) and 3rd (ended 06-21-2019) phases and would still be in the build out phase. When you’re talking about deploying a new band to the entire country it’s not going to happen overnight.

        • Jay Holm

          All I have to say is…Mmmmmmm…….

      • slybacon

        Did KETD Channel 45 in Castle Rock accelerate their channel change? They were originally part of Phase 9 (to be completed/cleared 5/1/2020).

  • Phil7474

    Tmo’s coverage is still a joke

    • JJ

      lol. Then switch providers. And if you are not with them why waste time complaining?

    • Sharti24

      Agreed but it is getting better. If the merger goes through having access to sprints towers will definitely help out

      • KMB877

        Sprint towers?!
        LOL, Sprint have the worst coverage! I have a cell with 2 SIMs, one is Tmobile, other is Sprint. Can’t say how many times I saw Sprint’s signal zero!
        Of course, my cell has all Tmobile + Sprint LTE bands (except 71).

        • Sharti24

          Drive down 77 in WV and tell me how the signal is with tmobile vs sprint. Tmobile is mostly roaming on USCC or ATT. Sprint (according to their coverage maps) offers great signal. This is one benefit of the merger….access to their towers

        • KMB877

          Sorry, can’t help I’m into the NYC area, and I didn’t plan a WV vacation this tear. I travel a lot by car to NY, NJ, PA, CT and NH/VT. I don’t remember seeing Sprint signal and not seeing on Tmobile’s. Vice-versa, yes, I’m saw this almost daily, even in Manhattan!

    • AA-Ron

      Speak for yourself, the only time I haven’t had any coverage is in death valley California

  • Mustang46L

    Still, their coverage in downtown Harrisburg, PA is trash. Even worse when you aren’t in the city. Oh, and in York it’s also trash. I just switched to T-Mobile after years with Sprint and Verizon thinking the coverage would be comparable but it isn’t even close.

  • David Goodwin

    This is cool and all, but there are big swatches of the northeast and especially the center of the country that have little to no coverage. Don’t get me wrong, it is improving but if your in small towns in NY, PA and NJ your coverage can suddenly drop without warning.

  • Sharti24

    How about Yellowstone national park? (Old faithful) Very touristy but no native t-mobile coverage. If verizon has coverage there so can tmobile. Make it happen!

    • KMB877

      I enjoyed several National Parks in different states this year and I had almost no signal all over (but my friends with Verizon had).
      Frustrating.

      • Sharti24

        You get what you pay for!

        • KMB877

          Correct!
          For that I’m not complaining.

        • Vinny

          I dumped Verizon due to weak coverage, slow speeds & lousy customer service. Live in a suburb of Boston, Verizon is a joke . T-Mobile IMO crushes the competition. In just one more year T-Mobile will have expanded in Parks ECT.
          Thank you T-Mobile, Thank You John Legere‼️

  • Daniel Holmstock

    whatever upgrades there are doing, service is getting worse. In my home area of VA, traveling form DC down to Culpeper VA, and 29 is terrible now – where it was always good, and i was in Orlando FL, and service there was horrible, where again it was once good.

  • SirStephenH

    WiFi calling…

    • Daibidh

      You’d think that would work. Alas, on iPhone, only SMS over WiFi.
