    Verizon was a lot better in my area in Queens NYC than AT&T. However, AT&T is still in process of doing a ton of work in my area which is still underway. Verizon has been doing a lot less work than AT&T but is still doing work in some places as it already had a higher coverage area. AT&T is closing up those coverage gaps and making improvement.

    Verizon and AT&T will both have significant coverage and each will differ in certain areas but AT&T has stepped up their fiber optics backbone significantly by me with constant ongoing work in a market which was previously having issues.

    AT&T’s decision to invest in spectrum instead of densification is going to come back to bite them once Verizon’s millimeter wave speeds and New T-Mobile’s 2.5 GHz 5G speeds raise customer expectations. Verizon has the density to deliver consistent gigabit speeds and New T-Mobile will have the midband spectrum to do the same, but AT&T has neither.

    Densification will come for att! There engineering may not be top notch compared to Verizon, but attís ran team knows they need more densification in a lot of areas. Expanding the network via the first net contract was to some extend priority, but now thatís coming closer to the ending and now more focus can be put on densification projects. Att will still rollout expansion, just not as aggressive as say the last 3 years

    Verizonís small cell capacity will limit them to those Gigabit speeds within tight Urban spaces. AT&T has a lot of potential with their spectrum holdings especially once they amp up backhaul and they phase into building more sites and small cells. Donít forget in some markets AT&T has dense small cell grids as well. Minneapolis and Chicago for sure.

    Not for long. I’ve read estimates that Verizon will reach 55% population coverage of millimeter wave by 2030.

    Att will probably be the number 3 network speed wise. Both new T-Mobile and Verizon will cream them until they catch up

    T-Mobile seems to already have more lte than att so att has some catching up to do

    62.7% the population lives in 3.5% of the land mass of the united states as of 2015 according to the US Census Bureau.

    Howís T-Mobile going to cream them when it will take them 3 years to integrate the network while trying to keep prices down? Funny. Also, the original article is about AT&T being on Verizonís heels in LTE coverage... not T-Mobile. LOL

    They've gotten pretty dense w cran's in Manhattan as well. They have LAA deployed on every small cell to boot.

    Unlicensed spectrum is so underrated. I can't wait until carriers begin including 802.11ay in their small cells and use Wi-Fi link aggregation to make their 5G perform at tens of gigabits per second. (It's a 60 GHz Wi-Fi protocol that can go up to 100 Gbps as long as it has either line of sight or minimal obstacles. Doesn't go far at all, but definitely far enough for outdoor pedestrians walking by small cells!)
