    Sort of.. Verizon's 3G and voice maps don't show signal strength, so there's a lot of areas that they claim have coverage, but don't.

    If you zoom in Verizon is pretty accurate about having signal or not. Even if it doesn't distinguish the bars of signal.

    In some areas. In others, they show blanket red coverage in areas where I'd be lucky to get 2 bars of 1x. I wish AT&T didn't do away with showing signal strength on their maps.

    The big thing with AT&T's map isn't distinguishing quality of signal, it's that even the has/doesn't have is a wild exaggeration showing mile after mile of no service area as full signal. The maps literally mean nothing.

    ...in some areas. In many areas they're accurate. You're generalizing.

    Then they show the marked stretch of road as not having LTE when it in fact does! It's been this way for months too.

    This map is a classic example of both situations, showing coverage where there is none and not showing coverage where there is, both situations proven by Sensorly. I have driven all those highways at one time or another, and some of those measurements are mine.

    Are there many areas that only have Band 5 LTE? Found one in NW Missouri between Oregon, MO and Hamburg, IA. Weird thing is only my S5 could even see it. My wife's older LG couldn't see it; only HSPA+, despite restarting and going in and out of airplane mode.

    Not all phones support Band 5. Some older ones don't support band 2 either.

    The first gen of lte phones only supported bands 4 & 17.

    Yep, hers can't see band 2 either for LTE. Interesting that AT&T is only running B5 in that area. Must be all they have. The HSPA in that area is only a year and a half old, if that.

    Is it 5 or 10 mhz?

    I didn't check but am guessing 5 MHz.

    The current OnePlus One phone is the same way.

    Only place I have send Band 5 with 10mhz is where they have both 850 licenses since HSPA isn't in the way. One place I went, it wasn't even a major metro area, they had 10mhz of each B17 and B5 running plus B4 and B2 kicking. Not sure of the bandwidth on the high band stuff as I forgot to check.

    How did they get all that spectrum? Mergers?
