    Didn't someone report band 2 in the new LTE/hspa coverage thread like 2-3 days ago?

    Yea, it was in either north or South Carolina. He uploaded a screen shot for proof.

    I was thinking about tracking every area from the map at http://maps.eng.t-mobile.com/, but that would take a long time... I then thought of making a huge one out of the newer map at http://www.t-mobile.com/coverage.html, but they still lie about 4G LTE in areas that are still 3G and 4G... Will pass on that one too. Thoughts?

    http://www.t-mobile.com/coverage.html Lies about LTE. Type in Zip Code 45227 which is on the Eastern Side of Cincinnati. It says we have excellent LTE coverage but we don't have LTE... Most of Metro Cincinnati is the same way. The only LTE in the Cincinnati area is on the northern side...outside of the 275 loop.

    Exactly why I still don't understand why the pink map lies while the old one doesn't. Big-time false advertising.

    Pass on the maps that lie. I wouldn't use either map since those maps only benefit the company that's trying to sell something that may not exist. It's hard to argue with a crowdsoruced map. At least the Sensorly maps are generated based from consumer input as opposed from a source which has vested interest in selling something, even if that may not exist.

    I still find their old map to be very accurate just about every place I've been to around Texas :/.

    Updated version (a day late). Lots of small changes can be seen, more so than the second one. Compared to the first one in June, there have been some respectable upgrades, but nothing massive [yet].

    (It might be better to open the 3 images in separate tabs and just switch to them yourselves than to observe the GIF.)

    Map updated August, 29 2014

    Got the August 2014 update up, let me know if its broken since I did the update on a smart phone so its rather tricky to use the control panel.

    The links are all good, but it's not showing the actual GIF. No biggy.

    If you could add this to the first post as well, that would be appreciated: (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.)

    Did this month's Sensorly map. Lots of small changes around the country can be seen, maybe more so than June to July or July to August. I also updated the individual images to show numbers for those who might prefer them, though I still prefer manually switching between the images.

    Map updated September 29, 2014
