    Two great smartphone apps to find cell towers and map actual coverage areas
    1. Cellmapper
    2. OpenSignal
    If You're With AT&T Wireless as your Cell Provider, Use the "AT&T Mark The Spot App" to report an issues with your service, like, no connection, slow speeds, no coverage, drop calls...etc
    Your Computer may help fight off infections and diseases!

    Did you or have you reported a network issue using the Mark The Spot app before? I've gotten that message before after reporting a network issue from that app and then they decided to build or expand cover in that particular area.

    Yes but the notifications usually showed up in the app
    And it showed where the issue was reported and where the new tower was built

    Now this text message doesn’t show or say where
    Just talks how much they spent on expanding the network

    Likely just marketing "fluff" to promote themself that is directed to your calling market.

    I e gotten those msgs a few times over the last couple of years. I try to report bad areas whenever I can on the “mark the spot” app. I don’t have any illusions that reporting really does anything but maybe a smart of me is hopeful maybe it could help. Lol. But anyway I have no idea if those texts from att have anything to do with my reporting of bad areas or not.
