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.

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?

    • On recent versions of Android, you are not likely to see it update every second except for in specific scenarios, but I'm glad it's updating regularly for you! For the benefit of whoever is interested.. signal updates from the OS are likely to be more frequent (but not guaranteed) if your device is moving fairly quickly (ie in a vehicle), and you are actively transferring data over the mobile network. When the connection is idle (including when you are using another connection method, like Wi-Fi), some things are not updated as frequently. Android does not publicly state anything much more specific than that. In reality, the signal strength is constantly changing, every millisecond, faster than the screen can even update.. but there's no reason for any mobile device to monitor it that intensely, the CPU and power impacts would be crazy. An overwhelming majority of mobile users don't even need it updating even every 10 seconds. As of last year, over 314 million Americans had mobile phones.. with some quick math, SCP is on less than 0.0032% of them 😆
    • I got frustrated enough to go to the nuclear option. Full factory reset and did not restore from a backup. SCP is now refreshing every 5 to 10 seconds, not quite the every second I prefer but still much more usable than when it takes several minutes. I wish I could identify specifically what is causing this. I don't think it is intended behavior if it is indeed the result of power management. Sent from my LM-G820 using Tapatalk
    • That's no fun. Unfortunately it sounds like something with your device? I don't have any control over the speed at which the OS provides data updates.. the OS tries to balance power usage with the likelihood of changed data being available, and I can't do anything to force it to refresh any faster. Even if I put a manual "refresh" button to re-query the API (as many people have asked for), it would simply show the same data already present. SCP automatically refreshes the screen when the OS reports there is new data.
