I have been told that the 5G towers in my area are being upgraded but is there a way to check the progress?  I have T-Mobile home internet and am waiting on them to be finished to see if I am going to keep the service. Right now I get between 20mb and 40mb on a good day.

Then you are in the top 90% with great service already. 

 

Be happy. 

 

They won't confirm or deny anything publicly about networking upgrades.  Any customer service representative who says otherwise is lying. Only engineering knows for sure. And they don't talk to anyone else in the company except management.

That's really not that bad you can watch a 4k movie with those speeds I had the lte gateway and I had to reboot it every day sometimes multiple times a day to get speeds above 10-15 I ended up calling and after a few calls with tech support they sent me a 5G gateway and now I'm getting 80-150 I saw it once I saw lt at just over 200 be patient. I would have been happy with the lte gateway with the speeds you are getting.

I agree with the OP, it would be nice to get information regarding tower status.. and there’s really no reason not to see updates from engineers related to it.
