    Coverage expansion

    The coverage map was updated. They are claiming just band 4 LTE refarming.
    Would just network twiking improve coverage that much? Like in South Calgary they expanded my a good 8 km...way over previous variable area.

    No, it’s just not band 4 refarming:

    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.”

    Theres two that I personally use:

    http://www.google.com/maps/d/viewer?...U.kIG2l3682dtc - They post additions in real time from the Freedom mobile Network Updates Page

    https://www.ertyu.org/steven_nikkel/cancellsites.html - Updates monthly with information from Industry Canada (or whatever they are called these days)

    Both those sites are missing Mission BC, for example, which has been live for a few months at least. Not their fault, providers are very reluctant to update the data due to lack of enforcement (I've filed a complaint and received no response from ISED).

    I would encourage everyone to complain to them here (choose Spectrum Management System for the item).
    And mentioned:
    - Months behind in terms of updates for all providers
    - Missing multiple licenses that have been deployed for years (I can get some specific ones, if wanted)
    - Data being "watered down" (for example, Telus now lists "Huawei Antenna" instead of actual model numbers as they are required to do and all other providers do).
