5G coverage at the Greystones
« on: February 08, 2021, 10:27:58 PM »
My Sprint/T-Mobile 5G coverage is wack here at the Greystones. Any carriers have better coverage in this area or is it probably just a location/building thing?

Call them.  611. I have found them to be very accommodating.  The 5G at 74th and 35 ave is fast.

There's a T-Mobile panel on top of Stratford Hall at 35th and 80th, another one at 74th, and another one at 85th. They have great density in our area.

I notice you say "Sprint," though. One concern may be that if you are on a Sprint plan/SIM, you are not getting the appropriate permissions or access to the new T-Mobile network. They have moved almost all of the Sprint spectrum over to T-Mobile 5G now. They are also doing experiments with standalone 5G, so make sure that your phone is properly updated to support standalone 5G.

The other carriers also have a lot of sites here in JH. Verizon was better than AT&T until they turned on their "nationwide 5G" which screwed up their performance. Now I'd say AT&T is a bit better than Verizon. T-Mobile is tops here though.
