    Hi All,

    I'm noticing some grumblings of people getting 4G signals in cities/towns other than the official map says.

    I figured we could keep track of those places for everybody.

    So, where all are you getting a 4G signal that's not "official"?

    Saint Louis is very spotty. Even when I had 4G, I didn't get that blazing hot speed as advertised.

    Parts of downtown Nashville (including the Gulch) plus the suburbs (Brentwood and Murfreesboro) have 4G. I got about 5.8 mbps down on a speed test done there.

    Jacksonville, FL is currently testing and will be official at the end of summer. It is up in certain areas, at certain times.

    I have seen 4G in Denver in the downtown area. Fastest speeds have been near Coors field @ 4.5mbps. I lose 4G north of I-70 on I-25. Much of the area has 4G signal, but it is not very fast. I am guessing that they have not finished with their testing and it has not been turned up yet.

    Arlington, VA - but its hit or miss. I think they're still screwing with the tower config. It's half a mile from my house, so there's no other reason why I'd only get signal about 25% of the time.

    Can't wait until we're fully live here.

    Really? I haven't actually turned my 4G on yet - where is this rumored coverage?

    Edit: Just read Al's post. Thanks
