    Sensorly - LTE upgrade tracking

    I decided to make this topic based on a post that bkin94 made here.

    Basically, we're hoping that people can put together comparison images (or better yet, animated GIFs via this) of Sensorly in their area, to get a decent idea of new LTE sightings and upgrades.

    I'll be keeping track of the US as a whole. Since Sensorly's site doesn't let you zoom out enough, I manually stitched together some images to make this (I didn't include Alaska or Puerto Rico):

    Do keep in mind that there are probably many areas that have been upgraded, but just haven't been mapped yet.

    I'll be keeping track of the US as a whole. Since Sensorly's site doesn't let you zoom out enough, I manually stitched together some images to make this (I didn't include Alaska or Puerto Rico):

    The GIF map now shows the first month (June 2014), the previous month (August 2017) and the latest month (September 2017), instead of all the months, to better show changes.

    Map updated September 2017


    Individual images:
    (It might be better to open the images in separate tabs and switch between them, since you can better see the differences compared to the animated GIF.)

    It doesn't appear they have a lot of 4G LTE coverage at all. I'm still getting GPRS.

    I'll update it every few weeks and highlight any changes.

    Nice!

    I see the little dot of LTE in Laughlin (Where Arizona/Nevada/California meet). This was previously all 3G (and horribly slow).

    To see T-Mobile building out LTE there is AWESOME. So exciting!

    Just to play devil's advocate here... couldn't this also just be people mapping previously unmapped areas? Or is there a way to filter that?

    yeah, definitely! but i think in most cases, they haven't been mapped before because there wasn't anything to map.
    having said that, here is a map that is mostly only expanded because of my mapping :-)

    (I think on the micro scale, like this, there are more cases where new places are only shown because of new mappings, but on the macro scale, the new areas mapped are a result of new LTE)

    Okay, here's the last one for the month, I think it's the best one since it shows the largest scale

    hopefully these are useful/interesting to all! :-)
    if you are in any of these areas and LTE hasn't been thoroughly mapped, be sure to fire up sensorly! happy mapping! :-)

    edit: I added the month to the bottom right, and added a duplicate of the first image so that it pauses when it starts
    Thanks for the suggestion! :-)

    I'd put numbers on the images. Sometimes it's hard to tell which frame is newer or older.

    So in other words, the upgrades really aren't that noticeable on a large scale

    Now they REALLY need to connect all those dots.

    This is why people are willing to pay a bit more for Verizon lol:




    And just for kicks, here's a comparison of all 4. In order:

    T-Mobile
    Sprint
    AT&T
    Verizon
