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 have a question. when a phone says "4G" that is really HSPA+? And when it's true 4G it will display LTE correct?

Awesome. I hope they continue to upgrade until their entire EDGE network is GONE!!!!!!! Hopefully in the next few years when AT&T starts refarming their spectrum, they will be able to deploy LTE statewide. They don't currently have the spectrum to deploy it now, but HSPA+ is pretty fast. I would like to know if AT&T is deploying HSPA+14 or 21 in the new markets it is upgrading in northern Mi.

Glad to hear that AT&T is activating more HSPA+ in the U.P!
Lewyman, do you have a link to the AT&T 4G by end of 2013 article?

Was in Gaylord today and tried to use my AT&T Mifi Liberate but couldn't. 4G service was just horrible as I couldn't use it at all. Very high pings and EDGE like speeds when it would connect. Does the quirky data mean LTE is being tested???HaHa!!!! New Sprint LTE has popped up on Sensorly along I-75 just a bit south of Otsego Lake.
