Slow/Poor LTE in Boulder/Longmont Area
I find that the LTE data speeds Southwest Longmont area of Colorado poor (3 to 4 Mbps down and probably the same or lesser for uploads at max, on Band 17, probably a bit more if you are lucky enough to hit band 4) - in addition coverage is pretty weak. Places like Downtown Longmont have zero bars of LTE and maybe 1 bar of HSPA+ - Hwy 119 has poor signal driving towards Niwot.
Anyone else having these issues?
Is AT&T ever planning on improving coverage in the Denver/Boulder metro area? Do they really have the spectrum to do so, given that they forked over a lot to T-mobile (and have not really had the foresight to buy 20x20 channels)? Or are DirecTV and Iusacell (Mexico network) the only priorities for now and domestic subscribers just need to move on?
My contract is up - so I am trying to figure out if its worth sticking around with AT&T in the hope that things will improve or if a more agile network like T-mobile is the way to go.
