    3G in Erie, PA?

    Any news/rumors about 3G coming to Erie, PA? I assume it is in the top 350 markets nationwide. The metropolitan area was ranked 135th largest in 2000. I'm going to get an iPhone 3G and I want to know when to expect 3G here.

    An AT&T rep told me that the 3G network should be in place in Erie by the end of the summer.

    If you can't wait, you could always go stand by the lake to try and force the pick up of the 3G from Buffalo, they're expanding more there right now. So it's likely when they're done in Buffalo they'll probably be making their way down to you in Erie.

    Maybe I can go out on a boat and try to get signals from Cleveland, Buffalo, and London, Ontario lol. I just purchased my iPhone today for Direct Fulfillment, and the rep said they are starting to install new towers and upgrade old ones. So some 3G might be coming my way soon!

    Gah!!! I remember packing my Siemens S46 GAIT phone when I went home to visit in scenic Erie County....

    There are sites along I-90 and I-79 that are legacy AT&T sites (Pre-Cingular). They may already be ready to go. All of those Cell One sites... Oy Vey!! That's a tall ladder to climb.

    Are Cell One sites hard to upgrade? Will At&t even upgrade those sites?

    Is there any timetable for 3G roll out? Although the Dobson EDGE speeds are not too shabby, I will be dying for 3G on my iPhone 3G.

    It's now January - any updates on 3G in Erie? I just moved here, I've been a verizon customer for 10 years as it's worked great for me everywhere but here.

    I also heard the same --> summertime. I keep checking the coverage maps, but no luck yet. I'm waiting to see if the coverage area will actually be big enough to reach Meadville. If so, I'm going to get the new iPhone due in June.
