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

    T-Mobile
    Sprint
    AT&T
    Verizon
    Excellent job coming up with those, and very illustrative considering these are done with REAL WORLD data and not made by any company's marketing machine.

    Also, Sprint's Sensorly chart is no doubt boosted by the large number of Sensorly users on Sprint.

    For all that went wrong with Network Vision, Sprint has done a fairly good job of expanding LTE to rural areas that they do cover.
    Have you read the forum rules lately?

    Yeah, I was amazed how much LTE was listed on Sensorly from Sprint, and how it was actually more than AT&T.

    I'll stick with historical changes for T-Mobile for now on.

    Pretty sparse, with 200+ miles between some little pockets of LTE.

    It would probably help if they had native coverage along I-10 between San Antonio and El Paso, like the other three, considering how well-traveled it is.

    I have mapped so many places on AT&T that were high travel areas that had LTE for over 2 years now. The thing is those users just have LTE all the time and don't search out for apps that show them where they can get signal.

    Those sorts of gaps include where they do have native service in this region:

    Oklahoma City-Amarillo
    Amarillo-Albuquerque
    Oklahoma City-Little Rock
    Dallas-Little Rock
    Amarillo-Denver
    Dallas-Houston
    Oklahoma City-Dallas
    Shreveport-New Orleans

    All at least 150 miles and up to 300-400 miles of glorious GPRS/EDGE. Then you have the famous 1200-mile roaming gap between Fargo, North Dakota and Spokane, Washington. But they're working on them and soon all the gaps I listed will be taken care of, cept the Fargo-Spokane one.
    I've been mapping a lot around here for Sensorly for both T-Mobile and AT&T, T-Mobile has excellent coverage, if they do upgrade it from EDGE to LTE they would be in full competition with AT&T and Verizon.

    That's truly my hope. The native voice footprint of T-Mo in OK is really impressive. I hope they're serious about this. We shall see.

    Using their alternate coverage map I counted 324 sites in the state outside of the cities, that's a lot to upgrade in a year's time but it can be done. In 2014, all they've done is upgrade Muskogee from EDGE to LTE but it's something and that was done before they announced the EDGE-LTE upgrade program. Their LTE in Oklahoma City is very speedy but the reach is just sad, it doesn't even extend into Midwest City, Del City, or El Reno and other suburbs according to Sensorly. They have a LOT of work left to just cover the remaining 1/3 of the metro area they're missing.

    Hopefully this moves as quick as their other uncarrier moves

    Just noticed that you can't edit old posts, or else I would've updated the first one.

    Anyway, it's been exactly a month since the first image. Here's the GIF (click on it to view a larger version):


    Nothing major to report, although there are many new spots of LTE here and there.

    I took care of that for you. Just leave the original post with the updates so people can comment on it.
    I'll just copy any URLs and paste them to them to the first post.

    I'm not expecting huge changes, however it seems in one month since this project started the changes appear to be miniscule (if that), that being said I have to wonder if there are as of yet, unreported areas with LTE or if Band 2 LTE has been turned on, yet.
