That is correct. In my area - its taken ~ 1 year to upgrade the majority of the sites. Cell Mapper and active contributors help show which sites have been updated.

Most of the time ... yes. I did have ~ 6 months of issues where 4 of the sites 'nearby' (up to 2 miles away) were upgraded, and the one that is 1/4 mile was not. In general, it wasn't a problem until T-Mobile had the tuning done - which typically now prefers band 2 over 4 and 12. This became an issue, as band 2 LTE wasn't active on my closest site, and band 2 would hand off to another site at -114dBm to -120dBm, instead of connecting on band 4 or 12 with -70dBm and having usable service. This did happen across a handful of sites before band 2 LTE was enabled in my area.

This is interesting. They've been upgrading a tower near me with band 2. A few weeks ago, when I'd access engineering mode on my LG V30, I'd see 20MHz of band 4, and 5MHz of band 12. Now that band 2 is active, all I see is 10MHz of band 2, and 5MHz of band 12. Not sure why I'm not seeing band 4 any more. I thought this phone was capable of CA all 3 of these together.

All of those areas in Michigan have had some B2 LTE for 6 months or so. A majority now have it which is very nice to see.

It's good to see that Band 2 is finally being re-farmed in large quantities.

I see Charlotte, NC on the list. Does this include Concord, NC or the Cabarrus county area?
