    Would be nice if you did Central Illinois that’s for sure

  • Phil7474

    That’s what’s up, Houston and Baytown on the list

  • RogerSC

    Well, not quite the full list. Santa Cruz, CA has band 12 (700MHz.) now. Didn’t used to have it, and it has really improved coverage in the area.

  • KOB8

    I consistently see Phoenix and surrounding areas on these lists but yet I still have a hard time getting good signal. I should say mostly the west valley, but actually parts of Phoenix like around the I-10 and I-17. It’s pretty frustrating.

    • marque2

      Phoenix has improved considerably over the last two years.

  • Curt S

    t-mob still way behind att and verizon

    • Sharti24

      Yep. Att has been killin the firstnet 700mhz rollout

  • Jay Holm

    Houston and Baytown are listed, we… that’s good. I wonder how much of this is Band 71…

  • Mike Smith

    Do these guys ever sleep??

    • Christina

      They better not. They still got lots of work to do.

  • jimmiekain

    When they add a city to the list does that mean they’ve upgraded the whole city or could it mean they upgraded 1 tower in that city?

    • Glenn Gore

      That type of detailed information is a trade secret, carriers do not state exactly where their sites are located, how many sites they have in a particular location, or what work is being done to any particular site because it might give a competitor valuable information as to where coverage is weak. So, when they list a city or town or rural location as being “upgraded” it may mean that one site got a backhaul upgrade, got new antennas or radios, or a microwave link to other sites, or more than one site was upgraded, you name it, it’s possible. You will never find out just exactly what they did unless you were there watching the work being done.

      • Sharti24

        Not true. You can call or go to the store and they will show you on their computer under their “grand central” system what towers have been upgraded and their location

        • Glenn Gore

          Gong to or calling a store and having a sales person log into a secure company website that shows the exact location, capability, and upgrade status of individual sites is not the same thing as having that information on a publicly available website where anyone can look at it, or giving specifics as to that particular information in a press release. As I said, no cellular carrier has that information publicly available.

      • Dylan Wentworth

        carriers do not state exactly where their sites are located

        It’s public record and you can pull up a list on the FCC licensing database website. It will show you gps coordinates.

        The cartels themselves aren’t going to provide that more than likely but I think that’s for marketing reasons. They want everyone to think they’ve got “99%” of the country covered which is total nonsense. They don’t want customers to know how little of the country actually has coverage (from any carrier)

        • Glenn Gore

          A couple of steps into the maze of the FCC website, the average consumer will give up from not knowing where to look or what to search for amidst the thousands of permits and other filings, so while the info may be “public record”, finding those records is an exercise in total frustration.

          One is FAR better off using a site like Cellmapper which shows the exact location and capabilities of each site. I have done my part and driven nearly every highway in the northwest quarter of Oklahoma while running Cellmapper on several different phones, mapping for T-Mobile, Verizon, and AT&T, so there is now a very good and very exact map of every site in the area. Cellmapper does not show when and where upgrades are occurring, but there is far more exact information on it than you will ever get from any carrier. You are exactly right, they would rather have customers believe their PR spin that they have everything covered. Horse hockey!

        • Dylan Wentworth

          Well, I never said the FCC Universal Licensing System was consumer friendly nor do I believe most (any?) consumers would refer to that to determine if they are going to have coverage. I can speak from experience on coverage problems on T-mobile and also Verizon and I can also tell you from first hand experience that having a cell site nearby doesn’t necessarily mean you’re going to have coverage. A lot of factors come into play with coverage.
          For example, I live up on mountain. There are cell sites and radio towers galore up here. One of which is a Tmobile tower. Despite being close enough to it to get cancer (sarc) I am not getting into that site. The reason is because the antennas are focused on the people at the base level and not the relatively few people up here. If I go stand under it, no problems but back at the house, I bounce around between a handful of other sites much farther away.
          Even on flat land, I’ve had issues many times where there are too many cell sites that are equidistant. And who can forget the glamorous metal buildings that are all the craze?
          The crowd sourced signal reporting sites and apps are indeed a more valuable tool although I do think the TMO coverage map is actually pretty good once you know how to interpret it.

  • Christina

    Lynchburg, VA? About fucking time! Keep up the good work. T-Mobile still has the worst coverage of any carrier in Lynchburg and I still don’t see a difference where I am so there’s still more work to do. Or encourage cell phone manufacturers to make more unlocked band 71 phones that aren’t $1K.
