    Yep, it's nice to see TMobile and At&t really start to hit some of those rural areas. In my mind competition makes things very interesting and things are rapidly changing in the cell world now

    This is a good move by t-mobile for two important reasons-

    1) at&t and verizon are considered to have better coverage than t-mobile (justifiably so). T-mobile wants to "advertise" that theirs is catching up and they are trying their best.

    2) t-mobile customers call and complain about coverage issues. Instead of addressing their concern individually, which can number in the millions, this is a way of assuaging their frustration and telling them to hang on- better days ahead.

    The big two don't need to advertise coverage- they have been doing that for many years and t-mobile is catching up.

    Kind of ... this is probably the best tool currently. Select a city / location and it will show which bands are active. Eg. Places like Houghton, MI will show 'LTE 600', LTE 2100 and 3G 2100.

    Some of the markets that gained low-band LTE this week include Oakland, CA; West Palm Beach, FL; Baltimore, MD; and Cody, WY. You can find the full list of cities and towns that gained low-band LTE in the past two weeks below.

    Our network team added lowband LTE to dozens of sites in just two weeks, which means more and better coverage. And #WeWontStop!! @TMobile @MetroPCS #AcrossTheGrid

    These updates are ridiculous. T-Mobile is free to say and PR whatever they want, as long as it's within the appropriate SEC regulations, but everyone should laugh at them for this. With xLTE a few years back, Verizon upgraded thousands of sites in 400 cities and makes one announcement about it, meanwhile every time T-Mobile adds a band to a tower or two, it's included on a giant list of every city, and it seems like it's every other week that they're doing it. AT&T is working on B14 deployment, they haven't really talked about it at all, they're just doing it. They already have a robust network, but they're adding a massive amount of capacity to it.

    I personally enjoy seeing where they are improving things, I guess if they don't appeal to you it would be best just to ignore the release and read something that means more to you

    I love seeing the updates. If anyone doesn't like it since they are on another network I could care less. No one is forcing anyone to read about T-Mobile's network updates. Fact is I am ticked off they don't show the progress of every Band 71 tower update every two weeks so I know the money I spend for my Band 71 capable S9 was worth it. I am considering driving 35 miles to see if there is a Band 71 site in West Palm Beach as someone on Reddit has reported. We need more updates from T-Mobile not less.

    That's right. And they're going to keep doing it. It no doubts drives critics of T-Mobile, like yourself, just crazy. Too bad. T-Mobile has already stated massive expansion plans. The anti-T-Mobile folks are just going to have to deal with it. It's not going to stop.

    Really since you have posted twice today on the AT&T Board in a thread called " Band 14 Sighting Thread"

    I love them. They are published every two weeks. One report for low band and a separate report for mid band. https://www.howardforums.com/showthr...-of-cell-sites

    If you see them before I do feel free to publish them for us here.

    I've grown to like tmobile and at&t. Can't stand Verizon but that's a whole different story.

    I think at&t and TMobile will both have great networks while Verizon is one big capacity constrained mess

AT&T doesn't really announce stuff at all, Verizon does once in a blue moon. Meanwhile, Verizon has built more LTE sites in more places than any other carrier in the US, or possibly in the world.



    No **** sherlock. AT&T is just doing B14, no fanfare about it.



    Verizon's network is very good overall, but their reliance on small cells creates this weird effect where in some suburban areas their network is slammed, but urban is mostly small cell, and rural areas are fine, as they are rural. Verizon's network isn't the be-all, end-all of all networks, but they have built the largest LTE network in the US. All the networks could use improvements in coverage to be sure.
    I think firstnet gives att a big incentive($$) to build. The others seem to be building a lot and tmobile seems to really want to catch up. Verizon has a lot of lte and they seem to really be pushing small cells (or whatever the official name is) now so it should be interesting how it all turns out.

    It doesn't drive anyone crazy. It just makes T-Mobile look idiotic when they post every little tiny update about one tower that got upgraded, while Verizon or AT&T will go and build out small sites or upgrade towers with new bands, and they don't have to announce it to the world like a little kid who went potty.

    I never would have guessed there was a thread for B14 deployments.
