Welcome to the new AT&T Community
We've got a fresh look! Take the tour to see what's new.
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...
Unfortunately no. It has been fairly quiet the last few months regarding upgrade info. Wierd that the tower in Cedarville has been HSPA+ for some time yet the site in Pickford is still 3G.
American Ninja hasn't posted recently so I am assume there is nothing new from the Lathrop site.
It is kinda shocking that AT&T has already begun it's LTE-Advanced deployment in several areas when there are still several towers on Edge.
To make matters worse, it appears AT&T has turned up LTE on the site in St. Jacques which is just southeast of you. The Lathrop site may indeed be upgraded from EDGE right to UMTS/HSPA+/LTE very soon. All of the new LTE coverage with the exception of Petoskey is now on the map
Nice!! Is it still on? Surprised because they usually turn it on after midnight and they don't test like Verizon. Was in Gaylord a few hours ago and is still H+.
I'm behind the cement plant on North Point Shores road. It's back to 4G right now.
I can see the tower by Kmart which is right accross the lake from me. But I think I am closer to the tower by Long Lake road where the old Detroit Gasket plant was ,which is just a short distance from Besser Company.
Sault Ste Marie has had LTE for about one month. Lightning fast. Have gotten LTE in Pickford a few times. I think it's coming off the Rudyard tower. Should not be long before Pickford tower is LTE.
I wonder when Escanaba, Gladstone and Marquette will be getting LTE? I thought they would've had it by now.
It is hard to say. Those areas have been HSPA+ for a while but that doesn't mean those sites were on Ethernet or Fiber backhaul, but I am sure they are very close to being ready.....if not already. By the end of July I suspect many sites in the U.P., including some that are still E, will have LTE turned up.
I am suprised how long it took for Gaylord and Alpena to get LTE considering they were the first areas in N/NE MI to get 3G.
