Coverage Map Update 10/11

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure if anyone noticed this, but as of the 10/11 coverage map update, roaming on the LTE/NR coverage map now mirrors AT&T's UMTS/HSPA/LTE coverage.  That being said, it notably no longer includes Verizon roaming coverage at all.  The EVDO coverage map doesn't display Verizon roaming either.  Verizon CDMA coverage is only displayed on the voice coverage map along with AT&T UMTS/HSPA coverage.  

Looks like were going to see a lot more AT&T roaming and a lot less Verizon roaming soon.

All of the Verizon upgrades happening in my market are LTE-only. The new equipment they are installing isn't CDMA-capable.

As far as I know in my market Verizon CDMA is still active. Sprint better get its butt in gear and install some more cell sites macro cells won't cover the coverage gaps that Sprint has in my market. I'm in the central New Jersey market.

I’ve started roaming a week ago on at&t lte that I didn’t use to. Voice goes to hspa on att. Speed slow but useable.

Well Sprint really is in trouble now that Verizon is shutting down CDMA.

Verizon isn't shutting down CDMA until 12/31/20 now.

Well the fact that it's being slowly shut down Sprint better come up with a contingency plan and order to supplement the Lost coverage from the slow-but-steady shut down.

They have a plan. It's called AT&T roaming.

Is it going to be limited like it was with Verizon? Like I mean in terms of a data cap.

As far as I know the roaming limits are the same.

Just this past weekend, I noticed a lot of at&t roaming in West Michigan where I'd previously been on Verizon

Seems two fold.  IIRC they were going to shut down business/m2m 12/31/21 and consumers 12/31/19.  Seems like they both now have the same date. 

VZW though seems like they are still killing the roaming because they want devices off the 3G network. According to my VZW buddy, EVDO is already dead.  I'd expect them to run just 1 carrier in SMR were they can.

Almost every Verizon site upgrade that has happened in Seattle in the last year is an LTE-only setup. All new builds are LTE-only.

Wondering if there are some Sprint device not capable of AT&T roaming?

    • In some of southern OH they are simply missing Sprint coverage, which has been an on again off again problem for Sprint.  For example there is a macro cell site in Ripley OH along the Ohio River and US 62.  You also get Shentel around Maysville, KY also on US 62.  They do keep tinkering with LTE roaming data.  Still have noticed issues on once you get on AT&T LTE roaming getting off often requires airplane modeing.
    • Should be able to draw some good interest once we get these torn down and figured out. Expect lots of proprietary protocol so finding a comm port on the modem will be tricky if that is your thing. Getting an antenna design going is what I am excited for most. All I can do with the software is try to break it hard enough in the most blatant manner possible.  I have to be nice to this case though, I shredded a MR100 Nighthawk and a couple of magic boxes no problem, I'm trying to keep this thing at least a few more months, so I am excited to see what I can come up with. If you manage to teardown Sprint's premiere 5G home router and set up some externals that would be really neat to see.   Jim @LTEfix is great. We boomer chat on facebook and get confused by all the software, bitmaps and such. He really has a great domestic business going sourcing all this stuff. Thanks to his services I have an elaborate junkyard going and now 3 year Ever Improving LTE Internet Project. 
    • Doesn't look like it. It only supports Band 2, 4, 5, 12, 13, 17, 26, 41, 66, and LTE-U. It also doesn't have CDMA support. That said, U.S. variants of Samsung phones tend to have U on the end of their name while international variants tend to be F. This is the international variant.
    • Something interesting I discovered is it still shows voice roaming in most of these areas. 
    • I'm noticing some new giant dead spots along I-29 in ND now. Central MN as well. Also SE MN, central MI, southern OH, parts of KY, VA, NC, SC, GA. It's like they just went in and carved some areas out. Seems like they cut out along major interstates. Maybe a cost saving measure to remove roaming?
