Max Armstrong offers a look at news of inaccurate wireless coverage information provided by cellphone companies

Max Armstrong shared the story of the work of the Federal Communication Commission to check cellular phone and data coverage in the country. It turns out that major cellular carriers were overstating their coverage in the country and the maps provided are likely inaccurate. Given that information the head of the FCC says he'll double the investment to get high-speed cellular coverage to rural areas.
