T-Mobile

Plenty of work left to do on the magenta coverage map

T-Mobile's LTE network is pretty expansive and hits many major markets across the country, but there's still plenty of room for expansion. The so-called Uncarrier is expanding its new high-speed network to over a dozen new markets today, hitting several different areas of the country including many smaller cities.

Check the full list below to see if T-Mobile's network is hitting a new market near you:

  • Ocala, FL
  • Palm Bay-Melbourne-Titusville, FL
  • Punta Gorda, FL
  • The Villages, FL
  • Valdosta, FL
  • Coeur d'Alene, ID
  • Twin Falls, ID
  • Bay City, MI
  • Holland, MI
  • Saginaw, MI
  • Gulfport-Biloxi, MS
  • Las Cruces, NM
  • Thomasville-Lexington, NC
  • Olympia, WA

Unfortunately still not in my city, I know a lot of people complain but Cincinnati is definitely a major metropolitan... It's bigger than Dayton but still not available here.

They don't have the spectrum in Cincinnati to launch LTE. It's one of the few areas. They've yet to aquire spectrum there. Saint Louis was also spectrum starved but they got some from U.S. Cellular. Cincinnati bell has been rumored to be sold soon so... Here's hoping. (They use the same AWS bands as t-mobile)

Plain and simple nothing beats Tmobile period. Forward progress has been emense these last 2yrs.

Where I live anything is better than T-Mobile. They still ignore anything outside a major metro area, where AT&T and Verizon have built a reputation of having good coverage.

that's because no one cares about your area. i'm sorry..it is what it is man. lol

NoNexus says:

wow those places must have some highway system, of course do not turn off those highways if you want service.

Sprint Mobile, coming to a town near you in 2014. I hope they can fix that "network"

drokssilva says:

That's just it. Two of those cities had EDGE. (Saginaw, MI and Bay City where 2g, and with really no 3g near them. They went right to LTE. Huge improvement.

This is where the MetroPcs merger helped. Those 2 cities had MetroPcs and t-mobile is starting to open up the old metropcs LTE network in California. (the route to los vegas. where t-mobile is edge or nothing)

Give it time..

Stalonage says:

I would switch to T-Mobile in a heartbeat if they had better service in my area. Too bad none of these markets are near me.

Valdosta is in Georgia, not Florida.

Yep! Valdosta is in Georgia. I actually live there! I don't have an lte device though. :-(

But isn't Valdosta in GA and not FL?

csmall says:

I've used all carriers on two coasts and have even driven across country with a couple.

T-Mobile, in my opinion, is the best carrier choice from almost every standpoint.

However, their coverage can't hold a candle to Verizon or AT&T.

I would really like to be a T-Mobile customer, but I can't be. I need the coverage.

In my area, if I stay within the major population areas... Coverage is fine. Even exceptional in some cases.

Unfortunately, if I drive in between these locations or venture off on a road trip of any sort, T-Mobile just can't cover me.

I'm not in a major city like NYC or LA, but I'm not exactly in east bum @%#% either. I'm in the capital of NY state.

Lawbreaker says:

Im thinking of switching to Tmobile but I have the same worry and I am south of you, in westchester closer to NYC. But I do road trip upstate. How is coverage on the main roads and the thruway like up 87 or east/west on 90?

cybertec69 says:

I suggest you stick with the carrier that you get coverage with,what good is a phone that you can not use. I also would like to save some cash, who wouldn't, but at the ends of the day I need my phone to work wherever I am, or where I am going to go,and Verizon had never let me down, phone wise or data wise, I am always connected. When T-Mobile can come close to Verizon's coverage then they will earn my business, till then they can try sell me all those bells and whistles and pink" magenta" unicorns, until they improve their coverage they are an afterthought to me.

csmall says:

I think you'll find it spotty depending on where you are on 87 and 90. Check the coverage map and if the path for your drive shows anything less than strong or excellent 3/4G

Your post makes no sense.

Any focus on network improvement in the Midwest would be appreciated.

Raylz says:

@csmall Albany gets no coverage?

Posted via Nexus 4

csmall says:

No it does. But if you leave the major areas of the capital district, things get crappy/spotty. Like for example... Schenectady is fine.. But the drive to Saratoga Springs might suck or even coverage up in and around that area and higher. The same thing probably applies to south as well. It is all laid out on their coverage maps.

zackmack7 says:

Never heard of any of these cities. But I guess that is a good thing! Shows T-Mo is working to bring LTE to places other than big metro areas

The SPCS Guy says:

Maybe at CES tomorrow, JL will finally announce that they care! And will provide magical coverage to the areas that no one really cares about...BUT THE PEOPLE THAT LIVE THERE!

ConTejas says:

Would you expect them to focus on smaller areas where 90% of the population lives or huge rurual areas with 10% of the population? It's not about caring, it's about sound business decisions. They'll get to you once they're "done" with the 90%, just the same as Verizon and AT&T did over many, many years (and MANY buy outs/mergers).

csmall says:

That's the thing. The big carriers have already got there. Someday T-Mobile may end up with coverage that people are looking for but big red and AT&T are already doing it.

joeynumbers says:

Funny thing is where I live, Verizon is way more spotty than T-Mobile. I pull 17-18 mbps on T-Mobile while I would be lucky to pull 2 Mbps on Verizon. Coverage is all a luck of the draw, or just do research before you invest in an expensive phone that only works on one carrier.

Tl;dr Verizon's coverage isn't all that great either.
