Frankly, given all of the red tape they have faced, I call this impressive. They are still claiming they will meet their Cycle I commitment (and part of Cycle II) by the end of this year. Overall, I'm happy with EA's progress so far.
That said, it's still very frustrating that the chargers I would personally use the most are sitting there, almost fully installed, but not yet turned on. And it seems that much of CA is also "coming soon". Here we are in the midst of summer travel season, and there are still significant gaps.
It's always hard to separate our personal site needs from those of the network as a whole, and even how the latter is doing depends on what you prioritize. I just did a 3-day trip which involved driving up and down U.S. 101 south of the Bay Area, past 4 EA "Coming soon" sites. I could see one (Pismo Beach) from the highway and it appeared to have the stalls in, but who knows when it will actually open for business?
That being said, here's a state by state breakdown as of 6/30/19 [Now correct and complete]. With the opening of a site in Delaware, there are now EA QCs in 38 of the 48 contiguous states, leaving just three more scheduled states still waiting for their first: MN, RI, NH. Seven states (plus AK and HI) were not included in the announced network: WY, ND, SD, AL, WV, VT, ME.
