    You'll notice on places like cellmapper that TMobile still have WCDMA in Northern Michigan... But only in urban locations. They don't have enough spectrum to do both, and will wait for sunset. In...

    That would also depend on the rural area. Baker, Mojave and many of the desert communities have quite poor air quality, as do some of the central valley areas.

    Many microcells are like these T-Mobile ones, and cover a couple city blocks - typically fill in and cover...

    The green 'dot' in the center of this snapshot it the range of a cellspot. Unless you have a Yagi/Cantenna you're going to hit 'something else' unless there is nothing else.

    Cell Spots have a range of a couple hundred feet at best, from my experience.
    There is one not far from where I live, in a shopping plaza (store), and I'll get B4-20x20, +100Mbps/10Mbps. Walking...

    Umm.. not really.

    I have been able to get some Google Services free through cruise ships (Princess). I suspect that they rely on some google services to run, and as a result... they work without a WiFi plan.
