    We now have the largest wireless (On-Net) network in the U.S. covering 2.7 million square miles, beating those other guys in coverage.

    The Internet wasnt meant to be metered in bits and bytes, so its insane that wireless companies are still making you buy it this way. The rate plan is dead its a fossil from a time when wireless was metered by every call or text. John Legere 1/5/2017

    I was literally just about to post this.

    2.7 mil sq miles is no joke. Vzw claims 2.69 mil I think. How many does tmus currently cover? Overall total coverage.

    As of June of 2020 it was 2.3 million square miles including Sprint.

    Wow nice! Wonder if they have eliminated all the 4G only towers yet. There is one I know that I have been waiting for them to upgrade.

    I'd like to think they would have them all updated a few months before the shutdown of WCDMA.

    Now if only they will go through and fill in the holes - - the network may be "wider" - - but it certainly is "thinner" than T-Mo and Verizon (Western Washington)... We switched to FirstNet and it's amazing how many places my work phone shows 1 bar while T-Mo shows full service.

    Be careful with tmobile's bars. Especially true on an android.

    1 bar vs 5 bars isn't good though. Western Washington is tmobiles home turf. Glad they're dense out that way.

    Does att have small cells deployed?

    Looks like Airports are starting to get 5G now. I remember seeing AT&T permits by La Guardia Airport. 5G was activated on non mmWave as per coverage maps but I presume mmWave is getting deployed within airports now so I guess this is what they meant.

    The new Moynihan Train hall and Penn Station during the modernization projects should also get mmWave 5G and I assume it will along with other train stations and airports which dont have it yet.

    They also deployed a load of small cells in East Elmhurst all around LGA and the surrounding neighborhoods.

    5G mmWave and/or 5G+ makes sense for high density locations like train stations, airports, stadiums, malls, and the like.. Coverage will never be high but there are plenty of areas where deployment makes sense.

    Yes for sure.

    These are all cran lte small cells that allow connections to n5 from the macros, as well. All are running b2 (2), b66 @15 mhz, & b46. Backhaul seems to be at 500 mbps, as I've gotten over 400 mbps in the middle of the day.

    When they say “On-net” are they including roaming? I can believe that. If they’re talking about native coverage only, that’s definitely an exaggeration. AT&T has large roaming area in Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada, Wyoming, Montana, Wisconsin, Nebraska, Maine, Utah, Colorado, etc. where Verizon is native coverage.

    If they’re really surpassed Verizon in coverage, why haven’t they marketed that fact? The coverage advantage is Verizon’s biggest selling point.

    Great question. They are speaking of domestic, geographic non-roaming thanks to FirstNet.

    They arent referring to density or SNR.

    What is SNR? Signal noise ratio?

    I have definitely seen the coverage and performance improvements from AT&T, but just looking at coverage maps will tell you that the native AT&T coverage is still behind Verizon, unless they havent been updated. Where does AT&T make up the difference in native coverage vs Verizon? Verizons big gaps are central Texas, West Virginia, and Missouri and Illinois around St Louis. AT&T still has gaps in central Navada, northern and eastern Arizona western New Mexico, southern Utah, Wyoming, Montana, southwest Wisconsin, etc. Where is the advantage coming from?
