I've heard talk about how ATT is "working on their network coverage" and plans to provide 3G service in Northeast MI "in the coming months". Well, now that another 2 year contract has expired, I'm seriously wondering if I would be better off jumping to Verizon. The EDGE data network up here if virtually useless. 5 full bars, yet extremely poor data transfer.
Can anyone provide an HONEST answer as to when this coverage is planned to be upgraded??? Verizon has had 3G for quite a long while up here...

I said it was Edge from "just south of" Gaylord to "just north" of Bay City. Yes, Gaylord has had 4G for some time now.

I just drove back from Gaylord to Alpena and it looks like the fiber crew is laying fiber about 10 miles outside of Alpena, between Alpena and Hillman. Hopefully they are on schedule to have 4G enabled in Alpena before I'm too old and feeble to use a phone!

HOOORAY!!! I feel foolish for being so giddy over such a little thing, but this has been a long time coming! I just realized it on my way back from lunch when I went to access the Tiger game. FINALLY!!!

Can anyone confirm if Escanaba got 4G today? My friend sent me a text asking me if AT&T has 4G in Escanaba? I told him I heard at the end of June is what I heard. He just sent me a text back saying it now says "4G" on his phone. o_0

My friend just sent me a screenshot. He said he's getting 4G in Perkins now.

Tight !!! That is AWESOME!!! It looks like AT&T is taking northern Michigan more seriously now!! With Tpeltz reporting 4G near Onaway, Alpena, and you now saying Escanaba is live....can't wait to see the new coverage map.
