    There's the firstnet coverage map, which is probably updated more often.

    Here’s a screen capture. I am not sure how the bands are assigned to be honest.

    Are you talking LTE only? Verizon definitely, but as you can see, firstnet is causing an expansion. Plus with the tower deal they both signed, tmus is going to have to keep expanding. Good competition out there now.

    I believe T has more combined coverage on post paid. Whistle out has a good article on it.

    Yeah I was talking about LTE. I'll check out Whistle. Thanks.

    Came up with this 2015 Rootmetrics report:

    http://www.rootmetrics.com/us/blog/s...2h-national-us

    There was an article recently comparing geographic coverage of the four big boys and it was 1. Verizon 2. AT&T (close to Verizon). 3. T-Mobile (distant third) and 4. Sprint. If I can find it, all post the link.

    Not sure about Orlando, I don't really go there. I go down to southeast Florida every year or two. Last year at this time they had (2) 2 x 10 carriers running for band 5. It was pretty impressive. Tons of low band down there. 40 mhz of band 5, 20 mhz of band 12 and 20 mhz of band 14.

    Of course he’s not. It says 3g
    Two great smartphone apps to find cell towers and map actual coverage areas
    1. Cellmapper
    2. OpenSignal

    Correct. I guess the point I was trying to make is that in my dual sim phone, my FirstNet always seems to have a better signal regardless of where I am or what I am on. In this instance it was 3G, but in LTE areas, I generally get better signals with the FirstNet SIM. Had I shown you an instance I was on LTE, you might have said it’s because the FirstNet is on Band 14, but as you can see, I’m not on Band 14 here.
