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'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.
