    Network Updates

    I know that, but if the cell tower map is accurate, I just don’t see how there would be any adequate signal inside Caesar’s Casino, for example, unless you have a Bell/Telus phone (with Telus having a DAS there). The casino is massive and there’s just no way Freedom or Rogers signal would pass thru the building from an outdoor macro site without significant attenuation and interference. Other smaller buildings might be OK but I can’t see it working well for the casino...again, unless the map is not accurate and there is indeed Freedom micro infrastructure inside.

    By the way, the PATH system in Toronto has good Freedom DAS infrastructure...at least throughout a good portion of it.

    I routinely drive through Windsor, but only see Huron Church or Dougal/Ouelette. (Sometimes Cabana/Division)

    I can carry a conversation through town from the customs booth without a hitch until well past Puce on either CTY Rd 42 or the 401.

    I haven't been into Devonshire mall since the roll out, many years ago. It was ok then, but not Bell OK.

    However I can get Home signal in Brownstown Twp in Michigan! (Amherstburg or LaSalle bleeding over)

    Amherstburg/LaSalle coverage is remarkably really good for all providers. I guess the relatively flat land with little to no building structures being higher than 2 storeys really helps signal travel farther with no interference. But signal inside Devonshire and the casino is tricky if you don’t have at least a large outdoor macro site really close to the mall. Rogers has a site outside but it’s not that close to the mall and Rogers signal inside is horrible. The closest Freedom tower is even farther than the Rogers site so if Freedom signal inside the mall is OK, then there’s something really wrong with Rogers’ config of their tower. The casino is even worse for Rogers (EDGE in a lot of spots inside) so I can’t see Freedom being any better, unless again, Rogers just doesn’t know how to optimize their sites, which is a real possibility

    Anyway, I was just curious to know since I’m trying to figure out how accurate the maps are.

    Freedom Mobile updated their network map on June 7:

    Freedom Mobile completes Band 4 spectrum rollout, updates network coverage map
    The updated network coverage map reflects changes made in Alberta and Ontario

    Canadian regional carrier Freedom Mobile has completed its Band 4 spectrum rollout, and has updated its network coverage map to reflect changes made in Alberta and Ontario.

    MobileSyrup was made aware of changes to the carrier’s coverage map thanks to a June 8th, 2018 post in the Freedom Mobile subreddit by Redditor dojo_mojo88.

    A Freedom Mobile spokesperson later confirmed to MobileSyrup via email that the network map was updated on June 7th.

    The spokesperson stated that the changes reflect “the completion of our Band 4 spectrum roll-out, the addition of new sites in the outskirts of urban areas and equipment upgrades that have enhanced overall network performance.”

    Freedom Mobile first launched its LTE network in 2016. However, only devices that were compatible with Band 66 LTE were initially supported by Freedom.

    Since then, the carrier has worked on expanding the number of devices support by its network, and has also purchased spectrum licences from other carriers — including Quebec-based Quebecor — in order to roll out 700MHz (Band 13) and 2,500MHz (Band 7) spectrum to its customers.

    A Redditor discovered in March 2018 that Freedom Mobile had begun to test Band 13 spectrum in select markets — including Vancouver, British Columbia.
