    If you were using a 6 or 6 Plus on T-Mobile and since upgraded to a 6S or 6S Plus, how would you describe your coverage now? Better, worse, about the same?

    Just taking a sample survey to help my decision in a month or so when I decide to switch carriers.

    Coverage seems the same to me from what I've noticed.

    The new band in the 6s connects to the new 700mhz network from T-Mobile. So you should definitely see the difference if you're in the coverage area. It's 2x faster for sure.

    Chicago area, NO any changes. I was hoping to see some improvement but same as I had 6 plus.
    Maybe someone from 700mhz area could comment on it.

    It seems that coverage is a little worse. I had 5 bars of LTE at work when I had my 6. Since upgrading to the 6S Plus I only get 3. Also the speed of the internet seems to be slower too. I did a speed test on the 6 and I was getting 75MBPS, now I only get around 15-ish.

    I'm in an extended area and I don't notice a difference in buildings. The Note 5 was getting coverage in places where my 6s+ needs to be on wifi calling.

    I find it to be worse but it could be placebo. Phoenix doesn't have band 12 which sucks. I'm going back to Verizon for iPhone 7. Love my unlimited data but not at trade off of signal lots of places.

    My area? It's debatable. Some places I go too have gained a "dot" of coverage. My home remained the same as far as bars are concerned but speeds have gone up slightly. In NY is where the change is noticeable though. Band 12 is sporadically spread around Queens and Brooklyn. One moment speeds are okay, next they're flying. I'm sure once it becomes more readily available we'll all begin to feel the difference.

    No Band 12 in my area, but I'm getting better coverage than I was with the Galaxy S6. FWIW
