Community update: The 850 MHz issue

Generally, my rule of thumb is that rural places have more 850MHz, urban
places have the 1900MHz. The only place I would usually see 850MHz was on
road trips, but now that I live on the North Shore, there is only about 50%
coverage for 1900MHz (and it's always like 1 bar).
