As of tonight it seems that in Leominster(and most of central mass) 3G has finally been turned on by AT&T. If anyone has any other input into this please feel free, i just figured it'd be good to spread the word to the people on the forum who are in the same area as me. Finally after a year and a half we've got 3G!

Now lets get it to Franklin County, dammit! Though, it does seem Edge has recently been faster at my house. But not getting 3G yet :(

Yeah its nice that they're expanding. Its nice because i work in an area that has 3G and i lived in an area that had edge, and it screwed with my phone so much that i had to get the sim card swapped out a few times because i would have to dial out to get texts or push notifications. Sometimes i wouldn't get texts and then i would call someone and i would have 6 or 7 come in at once. The funny thing...the time stamp would say the time they had sent it and not when i received it.

Finally! Thanks for the word. I'll spread it as well. This was my only complaint with AT&T!

Thanks. I'm hoping this covers the Fitchburg Airport as well. I would assume so but you never know with these guys...

Actually, a co-worker mentioned that she noticed it was on in Gardner on Monday and I should give it a go (office is in Fitchburg)... lo and behold... 3G! She lives right near the Fitchburg Airport and confirmed 3G at home, and actually (an perhaps unrelated) full bars where she would only have 2 before.

I go to school at Fitchburg State and was pleasantly surprised when returning from Thanksgiving break to find 3G all over campus. I went from 2-3 bars of Edge to 5 of 3G, woot. Better reception in buildings now too.

Confirmed this works at the airport this weekend. When I was driving east on Rt2 it went to edge somewhere around 190 for a while and then back to 3G a exit or two later... could have been a fluke. In any case, it's nice to finally have this enabled.

I had this exact same thing. I drive between Leominster and Worcester every day for school and i get it between exit 6 and exit 5 where the cell service tends to still be at edge, which surprises me because 117 its now 3g the whole way from 495 to 190.
