New: 5G Interactive Maps

You may have heard that Verizon Wireless is finally providing zoom-in 5G coverage maps.  That means three of the top 4 major wireless carriers now offer a peek into their 5G coverage.  Our Cellular Maps Interactive Coverage Page now links you to those zoomable maps. Verizon's maps display "street-level" coverage which means they aren't claiming "in-building" coverage.  Of course, you can sign up for their "Home" 5G home wireless service as long as you can get a signal at your fixed location.  Ah, the beauty of such high frequency data connections.

We aren't sure why AT&T is still not providing 5G coverage maps.  Perhaps their "5G Evolution" provides a bit too varied a download rate in too many locations to claim a universal "5G Coverage" report.  In the meantime, we're waiting for T-Mobile's introduction of 5G coverage at 600 Mhz scheduled for December 6th. It could be a game-changer.
