I've been here since Thursday and the iPhone has been on EDGE the whole time (as it has been for my visits over the last two years). I was at the Bear River having some apres beers and looked down to notice it had a 3G connection! That was a couple of hours ago and has stayed the same way since. Good thing if that's the case. Much easier to text pics to friends and family back home. Hope this is for real. Too bad we leave on Thursday.

Sure seams that way.  I have been here since Saturday and just started getting 3G signal today.  So is my wife.  It does seem like they just turned it on.

I can get their version of 4G as well (HSPA, I believe) on occasion.

I was there two weeks ago and had occasional flashes of consistency and then POOF it would disappear and go off searching for itself again.

Noticed 3G around 6am on 2/8/11...Tweeted from desk a few mins later.  The timing was so close to Verizon's launch of the iPhone I guessed it was part of a significant increase in national 3G coverage.  Been watching news and no such "big rollout" has happened.

 

The coverage seems as good or better than with our old EDGE network, and apparently the EDGE is still around to handle overflow from 3G, so it looks like ATT increased total capacity in Steamboat in addition to the 3G speed bump we all get.

 

It's been nice to have on my iPhone, but the real win from my personal experience has been that the 3G iPad I use is now *much* more useful.  Like livin' in the big city :)
