Had intermittant "G" on my HTC One X. I would assume that means 3G. Never had a 4G signal on my phone any time I was there.
My device has really been acting screwing around the UP. When I go downstate I have no problems.

No....G does not mean 3G. Your phone will only display 4G in a 3G/hspa+ coverage area. G is pretty much the equivalent of E....it is slow!! There has been 3G/hspa+ in Marquette for quite a while now. If your phone works ok downstate but not in the U.P. you might want to call tech support or go into an AT&T store up there. If your radio was bad it would not work anywhere. I have never heard of a problem like that before.

Good things are coming for AT&T customers, it's been a long wait, but I can confidently say that good things are coming online soon.

The dawn is coming for rural AT&T customers who have been holding out for 3G/HSPA+ service.
Read the last sentence of the second paragraph. Rejoice people, rejoice!

Where did you see this article and how recent is it?
I worry that most of the U.P. and parts of northern lower, will be part of the "virtually all" that will not be upgraded.

Well there is an updated coverage map on AT&T's site as of 6/5/13 and still no new 3G/H+ coverage in northern Michigan. What in the world is going on??? Here are the latest screenshots from Sensorly depicting Verizon 4G and AT&T 3G/HSPA+ ("4G") coverage.
Verizon 4G LTE 30 months after launch__AT&T 3G/HSPA+ coverage since 2007.
No....it's not complicated!!!!!

Well, let's remember Sensorly is solely dependent of its users. That means the map can be wrong. I would personally go by the coverage map or RootMetrics since both their staff and users contribute ti the maps. As far as 3G expansion goes, the answer would be maybe since AT&T is always working on their network to expand into new places and performing upgrades. It's a definite possibility but no one knows until it happens. Your best bet would be to ask a Customer Care representative and thet may be able to tell you.

Yes Sensorly is user based which makes their coverage map pretty much spot on for actual coverage in areas that haven't been "Officially announced". I have personally mapped close to a hundred miles or more of verizon 4G coverage which many of those areas have yet to appear on Verizon's official map. I also have an AT&T hotspot I carry with me and I can say I haven't found any new 3G/4G in northeast MI. Now there may be a tower with upgraded service somewhere up there, but not likely as word travels fast. But that's the point of this thread. The fact is AT&T started it's 3G buildout in 2006, and look where it is today in Michigan, on either Sensorly or AT&T's map. Now since 2006 Verizon has built out an entire EVDO 3G network, getting close to finishing it's first LTE buildout, and will start it's LTE-A next month. Thats almost two complete 3rd and 4th generation highspeed networks in less time. AT&T's EDGE coverage area far surpasses even it's own LTE coverage....I mean really?? On a final note...I would get better info from Mr. Ed than I would a C.C.R. Just saying....

There were three trucks and major activity at the att tower today south of Pickford . Lots of black cable , whatever that means. Maybe, just maybe.

No "4G" (HSPA+) at the Mcfarland tower yet. I still have E outside my house but, when I get in Perkins it switches over to 4G then I have it in Gladstone and Escanaba. when Im coming back from Gladstone or Escanaba, I lose 4G just as I leave perkins then it switches back to Edge.

This is an AT&T tower in Red Oak, MI about 15 miles south of Lewiston. Sometime in the last month, they have added these multi-frequency broadband antennas for 3G/4G. This tower is in the boonies....literally so I commend them for upgrading and prepping northern MI for broadband wireless service.

It was rather frustrating this past weekend. I was in the Gaylord and Houghton Lake area with a friend on Verizon. Me, E in every place except downtown Gaylord (which was .8mb 3g), the V, LTE virtually everywhere. Oh and V doesn't show LTE in Gaylord, but trust me, it was there and all around. Heck, even Sprint had LTE in Gaylord!
Granted, the LTE works great where I live but...I am still not sure why I renewed with them.

Verizon just launched a metric TON of new LTE coverage in NE MI. Rogers City, Onaway, and Indian River areas. Also continuous LTE coverage from Gaylord all the way to St. Ignace. New continuous LTE from Indian River to Rogers City on M-68. And it is blazing fast.
