iPhone 4 on AT&T:
Any ideas for adding some more 3G in Michigan? As the maps have shown - land wise, we've still got a good bit of EDGE left hanging around. I understand that the predominate population is covered - but it still boggles my mind that Sprint and Verizon have had EV-DO in the Adrian, MI area for at least 5-6 years now - but I'm still on EDGE when I travel home from Ann Arbor at the end of the day. Before anyone says switch carriers - I'm fortunate as work pays for my cell phone and we have a corporate contract with AT&T.
Maps updated to 2/3/2012.
Weed, CA now has enhanced backhaul
Prescott, AZ now showing enhanced (did it before?)
Grand Rapid / Hibbing MN enhanced (since end of December)
Nothing new for Youpers.
AT&T... your world, throttled.
I haven't found any major areas where coverage seems to have been removed. Seems the details has been refined a little, though, which may make for more areas showing up as "good" instead of "best".
yeah - must be just the initial glance... I looked at the older map that I stitched together, and it doesn't look any different.

Enhanced backhaul in Lincoln, NE.
I see some 3g expansion in western texas.
Maps are updated to 2-17. Updates for NorCal:
-HSPA+ w/EB now on in Red Bluff, Corning, Los Molinos, Orland, Anderson, Cottonwood and Mount Shasta.
I am heading over to Redding next week for a night on work, it looks like I'll have solid HSPA+ w/EB almost all of the way now, with just some EDGE and a couple of dead spots between Lake Mendocino and Upper Lake (CA 20), the HUGE dead spot between Clearlake Oaks and Williams (CA 20) and a short stretch of EDGE on I-5 between Williams and Willows, AT&T is really taking good care of the rural North State!
We do a lot of work over there, so it will be nice having all that Faux G goodness, now bring on the LTE baby!
Anyone know if AT&T is sort of doing what I call their 'cycle' updates this year? It seemed like last year there were a few major milestones for areas getting 3G turned on. Those seemed to be March, June and Oct/Nov. Not that they didn't add improvements between those times but it was sort of those major milestone dates if I remember correctly. At their current pace, if they are really attempting to get 3G coverage almost everywhere, by the end of 2012, it seems like they will need to pick up the pace a bit.
Backhaul updates on 101 from Salinas CA to San Lucas, CA
It sounds like they're working on the Central Coast (Santa Cruz south to Santa Barbara) too now.
Kinda strange to see Santa Barbara late to the Hspa+ game on AT&T.
