    Check it out: http://people.ku.edu/~cinema/wireless/regions.html

    We currently have 4 regions completely online (northeast, great lakes,
    northwest, and southwest) and 1 region partially online (west). The
    remaining 4 regions (great plains, southeast, deep south, and midwest)
    will come online over the next few months as time permits.

    Comments and corrections are very welcome, just e-mail me.

    Thanks to Andrew Shepherd for his generous and ongoing help and

    I am looking forward to the complete map (looks good so far), as I live in

    Thank you very much for the maps. All we need now is for someone to
    steal the REAL coverage maps from the vaults on all of them and post
    them to a website out of the country, somewhere out of reach of the
    company lawyers....(c;

    I agree, the maps are really cool!

    Larry, you mean you think we as customers have some kind of right to
    know where our phones will and will not work?

    That would take all the fun out of it! Imagine, we might be able to get
    by with only 1 phone! =)

    Those maps are great. I'd also like to see for each carrier what
    technology they use (TDMA, CDMA, GSM)

    Re: new cellular license maps available

    Many times on the Verizon newsgroup I have advocated FCC start doing
    its job of REGULATION and ENFORCEMENT of the public airwaves. Each of
    their licensees should be required to use the SAME, COMPATIBLE
    modulation scheme (like AMPS was forced on them to get a license in
    the first place)....then, force them to either provide a STANDARD of
    PERFORMANCE across their entire licensed area.....or......force them
    all to share resources (as they are compatible, not proprietary) by
    using each others systems until they can provide the service,
    themselves. Having to pay other carriers for use of their towers,
    where we are short of presence, and those $10K/day/occurance FCC
    enforcement Notices of Liability of Rules Violations just MIGHT get
    them more interested in erecting enough infrastructure to keep out of
    jail.....BEFORE we blow the revenue on cameras and internet and games
    and other nonsense not listed in their licenses. Those that refuse to
    comply would face revocation or non-renewal of licenses so others, who
    would be more cooperative, would comply.

    Just like broadcasters constantly face....the Proof of Performance
    Tests.....(c;

    This makes way too much sense, and will never work for the same reason.

    That's called the free market. It works. Regulation doesn't. Consumers are
    getting what they want, which clearly seems to be (1) low price and (2) sexy
    features. If performance really mattered to consumers, then we'd undoubtedly
    see better performance, and higher prices to match.

    Re: new cellular license maps available


    Pricing is interesting.

    Currently you can get the most anytime minutes for the buck on AT&T and
    T-Mobile national plans. Sprint's plans are now priced noticably
    higher than the competition. HOWEVER if you want a one-rate type plan,
    with unlimited data, Sprint would be by far the best choice.

    With Sprints heavy corporate advertising it makes you wonder if they are
    attempting to position themselves towards the business user.

    AT&T meanwhile, once the darling of the business world, is now
    advertising heavily to the younger crowd, and Verizon just keeps doing
    their own thing, which seems to be working ok for them.

    No, you are not asking the FCC do do it's job. You are
    defining an entirely NEW job set for the the FCC. But
    while you are at it, why not add a regulation that all
    carriers must offer at least one phone that performs at
    the maximum FCC allowed emission level, and allow any or
    all customers to activate any phone that will run on their
    respective network?
