    Including Cleveland, West Texas, and I'm sure other areas, I haven't looked yet.

    Matt,

    Do you have any idea if they plan to fill in the area of I-55 from south of Jackson to Hammond, Louisiana? I sure hope they do.

    T-Mobile has no licenses for the McComb MS BTA. [​IMG] (Per FCC databases, a C license is available that they might be able to pick up in a future auction, if it hasn't been auctioned already.)

    Thanks for the info. I have a cell phone for 2 1/2 years, but I am new to these message boards. Could you explain the different licenses. You mentioned a C license. I have read about F licenses. What does all of that mean? Thanks for your help.

    There are 6 bands of licenses, A through F (although some have since been subdivided). The FCC auctions off licenses from time to time, and the carriers buy them and then have a set amount of time to build out their service.

    Is it just me, or does VS seem to be really expanding in Ohio here lately? Columbus coverage LOOKS to be quite good, plus the buildout in Cleveland, and they've even connected Cleveland with both Toledo and Columbus. Plus, they've managed to cover I-75 from Northern Michigan all the way down to Ft. Myers, FL. Rural coverage is still nonexistent in many places (nothing more than a couple miles off many of the interstates), but they're doing better than AT&T, IMO. At least they're connecting the cities they're building out, unlike AT&T which seems to be overlaying major metro areas, but not doing any major throughfares.

    From the looks of the GSM National map on Cingular's website there is going to be quite a bit of future coverage added for Ohio, Tennessee, Kentucky, Indiana, and Missouri.

    Yep, it looks like it and my guess is it will be T-Mobile.

    Voicestream/T-mobile is doing a MUCH MUCH better job with their GSM coverage then at&t.
    It is impressive that they conencted Toledo to Cleveland and then Cleveland to Columbus.

    With at&t GSM you CAN NOT travel I71 from Cleveland to Columbus without a big gap of NO SERVICE+ with their TDMA it is analog only in this area.

    There are a few places I would like to see t-mobile expand. But looks like decent coverage

    What happened to Route 80 in PA? Looks like little coverage there.

    80 has never been covered well. Conestoga has the service on one stretch, but I've heard VS is going to build out the rest on their own....

    On I-80 in PA, from east to west, I get spotty coverage with Cingular, Sprint is the same.

    Yes, I-80 is a tough area in PA, I was just took a trip to New York, my VS phone had nothing for most of the way. The time before that I had a Sprint phone, and that did have pretty decent coverage all the way, was shocked. One of the guys that I was traveling had an AT&T phone, and that phone had pretty good service, even though it was roaming part of the time, never went into analog mode.
