    Updated coverage map

    Looks like the REAL T-Mobile Coverage Map (not the EOY 2017 comparison map) has been updated and now shows the new LTE at Yosemite National Park as well as other places. Weird though that it still shows 2G on the highway that goes across the island I live on (Saddle Road) which has been LTE/4G for over a year.

    Interesting. Anybody been through the park lately that can verify if TMo LTE is on air? And if so, how was it?

    It wasn't live yet when I was there in April and there wasn't any AT&T roaming either. It looks like a smaller area than ATT and Verizon covers in the park and judging by the map, it looks like just one tower. But it's a start.

    From the map, they probably didn't install their antenna(s) on the same pole as AT&T and Verizon. T-Mobile's coverage seems to be centered on the Visitors' Center. It also appears to be mid-band only, no 700 MHz.

    I'm looking forward to someone going there with CellMapper.

    T-Mobile is on the same physical tower as AT&T & Verizon in Yosemite Valley. However, AT&T and especially VZW have more sites in the park than this, but it's a good start.

    They updated some towers in NH as well, including a new one that went up recently and band 12 on another site.

    It's good to see that they are still adding towers and not just focusing on 600

    That seems strange they wouldn't start with 700 here. Do they not own any 700 in that area or something?

    Last time I checked, Verizon and AT&T had four small antennas on a wooden mast behind the phone exchange[/URL]. There are also small dishes for the microwave relay to their solar-powered mountain-top site.

    (I had a lot of trouble linking to Google Maps, so I copied the street level view and uploaded it.)

    Hopefully, they will be able to do both. When they add towers, they can hang antennas that are capable on both bands. As 600 is cleared, they can light it up without having to hang anything new.

    All I can think of is that they'd be limited on the size of the antennas they could deploy. Yosemite Village is a very small area and range is limited by topography.

    i noticed a month ago they added native coverage in Princeton, WV and a week ago i noticed on sensorly they now coverage coverage in Bland, Va which are both located on I-77. there is a new array on a AT&T site where i live about 7 miles from I-64 where T-Mobile has Band 12 and I'm almost sure it's T-Mobile but hasn't been activated yet. i noticed a new array about 2 months ago and i did buy an unlocked phone to test it but i roamed on AT&T's HSPA+ network.

    Ya, that makes sense.

    Actually, they did. AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile all share the same tower in Yosemite Village. There's only one cell site in the valley.

    The difference is that T-Mobile is only using B4, while AT&T and Verizon are using B12/17/13.

    That was the old site. They recently ran fiber there and replaced that old wooden pole with a metal monopole.

    Is the new monopole disguised as a tree or anything?

    Did AT&T actually upgrade to LTE in the valley? Last time I was there it was still UMTS.
