    It's working in Taunton. I was 3G till about 10:30. Got a message and I noticed the 4Glte . In a crappy area inside my building. Also have it in a good part of Fall River, unfortunately I live in the extended lte area. No 4G at home but the signal does pop up from time to time. I can pick it up about 500 yards from my house. A solid 3 bars too. I may try a booster since I already have a rotary antenna on my roof. It's a yagi so it should work. If I have it at home and work that will be good enough for me till they expand the coverage. I'll post an update after I get this installed in case anyone else wants to try this.

    I had 4G coverage in Providence for a while then it switched back to 3G. After that, I lost all data coverage. Go figure.
    Eventually I did get 3G coverage back

    there is a tower in Manchester (according to my speedtest.net app), strangely enough it seems to follow 93 instead of radiating out from one point.

    I have 4G at home (thankfully) but at work I'm stuck on 3G. I seem have data drop out on me for extended periods of time while at work, I was really hoping that they would expand more to the NE Mass/SE NH area b/c there is crap coverage around here (work).
