T-Mobile surpasses at&t as carrier with most cell sites

Filed under: New Cell Site Active,T-Mobile - Sep 29 2008

With the completion of a new T-Mobile cell site in west Reno on Summit Ridge Drive (CID 4360x), T-Mobile has surpassed at&t as the carrier with the most cell sites covering the Reno-Sparks city limits. The new site which is just to the southeast of McCarran and Interstate 80 brings the total number of T-Mobile cell sites to 40. at&t has 39 cell sites serving the Reno-Sparks city limits.

However, just because T-Mobile has more cell sites does not necessarily mean they have better overall coverage. Part of at&t’s network operates in the 850Mhz radio spectrum, which generally covers a larger area that 1900Mhz which is where T-Mobile’s network operates. T-Mobile has been rapidly expanding their network this year in the Reno area, turning on 5 new cell sites in the past year compared to 1 new at&t cell site.

You can view maps and a list of the number of cell sites per carrier on the Cell Site Locations & Coverage maps page.
