If you are a prospective buyer of the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus that Apple introduced at its product event on Tuesday afternoon, then perhaps you are wondering which carrier in the United States provides the best coverage. It can be a challenging and confusing task to know which carriers provide the best coverage in the United States, especially since each uses conflicting claims that almost border on misleading advertising. Verizon is the largest carrier in the United States in terms of subscribers, and its network is certainly ready to live up to the capacity. Verizon’s network covers a claimed 97% of Americans, based on the latest statistics available.
If you consider paying higher prices for trusted and reliable wireless service acceptable, then you should definitely consider Verizon for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. If you choose to look past Verizon, then AT&T is your next best bet for network coverage and reliability nationwide.
AT&T also claims to have the fastest and most reliable 4G LTE network in the United States. AT&T claims to have less than a 1% rate of dropped calls nationwide, based on an independent third-party drive test performed last year. Sprint is unlike its competitors in the sense that it does not promote its network as being the fastest or most reliable. At the same time, it should be noted that Sprint is putting a lot of effort into improving their network from coast to coast. Sprint employs technologies that are committed to keeping you connected, including 8T8R radios that boost its 2.5 GHz signal and Wi-Fi calling, which allows customers to make domestic and international calls over a wireless connection. Ultimately, while you might not have coverage everywhere, especially in the central and northwest states, you are also paying a lot less for most Sprint plans compared to the big two in AT&T and Verizon. I recently spent one month in New York City and used T-Mobile as my carrier of choice during my stay in the United States’ most densely populated metropolitan area.
Just like with Sprint, T-Mobile is doing whatever it can to make necessary improvements to its network coverage. You’re also going not going to have to offer an arm and a leg for wireless service on T-Mobile, as the carrier offers affordable plans such as unlimited talk, text and 4G LTE data for $80 per month. If you are a city dweller on a budget, with intentions to purchase the iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus, then be sure to give T-Mobile a serious look.

The Prepaid Coverage Map is in purple (2009) followed by the prepaid coverage map from a year or so ago. The two types of coverage are now almost the same, so this is not an issue for most people. You can look at coverage in your local area by entering your zip code on their coverage locator (be sure to select "Prepaid"). When we lived in the Chapel Hill, NC area we checked out the coverage: looking east to Wilmington Beach, Kittyhawk and the Outer Banks, coverage was pretty good with thick bands along most of the highways, with coverage even in the Outer Banks. If you live in a sparsely populated area, then you might be better off with a standard Verizon contract plan with the slightly better coverage because you do need to be able to make your calls. Verizon has a new prepaid smartphone plan called the 4G LTE Prepaid Allset Plan which costs $45 per month and includes unlimited talk, text and 1 GB of data per month. One thing that makes the plan a little better is that you can add 500 MB to your data by signing up to pay your bill automatically each month. The weird thing is that Verizon doesn't offer unlimited data, but the Straight Talk smartphones that run on the Verizon network are supposed to have unlimited data (though throttled after 3 GB). The Basic plan is really a pay as you go plan with every minute costing 25 cents and no daily fee. A $100 airtime card is good for one year of service and 400 minutes (minus the cost of text messages).
The 99 cent plan allows unlimited free Mobile to Mobile calling with other Verizon customers. Because you are charged only on the days you use the phone, it's hard to estimate what your yearly cost would be without making some assumptions about your calling habits. This would go down quite a bit if you use the cell phone less than seven days a week and tended to mainly call Verizon numbers.
I definitely recommend this plan if your friends and family already use Verizon and if you have infrequent (but long) phone talks with them on the phone. If you use the phone every day, the minimum yearly cost for this plan (including the activation and setup fee and 600 minutes) is a little more than $800 a year. If you will send and receive a lot of texts, then you can buy a $20 a month bundle for unlimited mobile messaging to anyone in the US. It looks like it's cheaper to download songs to your PC and then upload them to your phone than dowloading them directly. You can add airtime by buying airtime refill cards online or in stores, or you can add minutes directly via a "My Prepay" account at Verizon's website.
In stores, you can buy cards in denominations of $15 to $100 which last from 30 days for the $15 refill card to one year for the $100 card. With My Prepay, you can buy and add airtime in various amounts to your phone without having to purchase airtime refill cards. For the smart phone plans, they finally have some good choices such as the Moto G pictured here.
Officially, there is an activation fee of up to $35, but you can avoid that by purchasing your prepaid phone online directly from Verizon. Puerto Rico is treated as being in the USA so there's no additional charge from making calls to Puerto Rico. Calls to Mexico landlines cost an additional 10 cents, and calls to Mexico cell phones cost an additional 29 cents per minute. It costs a whopping additional $1.49 to anywhere else in the world, which means you'd only do it out of desperation.
It costs an additional 10 cents to send or receive a text messages from participating carriers in Mexico and Canada. It costs an additional 25 cents to send and receive a text message via participating carriers from elsewhere in the world. This page allows you to select your country and click "Display" to see the list of carriers.
You can get discounts for purchasing Verizon prepaid cell phones directly from their website. Since offering local number portability is the law of the land, you can port your current cell phone or home phone number to Verizon.
If you want to switch, but want to make sure you have great coverage, then a Verizon Wireless Prepaid plan can be a good choice.


Similarly, the Straight Talk plan offers smart phones that run on one of the four big networks. May 28, 2015 by libertatemamo 64 Comments I get quite a lot of questions about what we do for internet and phone on the road.
That said I’m quite happy to talk about what we currently have since the previous posts I have on the blog on this are woefully out-dated. When we first started RVing Verizon had the absolute best coverage nationwide, and these days that’s pretty much still true.
The advantage was that we got to add Paul’s mom to the plan PLUS we got our own individual phones (Paul had been lobbying for this for a while) PLUS we got 10GB of shareable data that we could hotspot as needed to any device.
In addition to the stock antenna we also have a Wilson Paddle Antenna for more marginal areas that attaches to the Sleek with a beefy cable and an adapter connector.

I am leaving in 12 hours for a round the country trip–CA to IN to PA to NC to FL to TX and CA. Last October we were at Jackson Rancheria RV Resort and had one 24 hour period that we were charged for just under 5 GB of data.
Lastly you can download a data tracker program for your phone & PCs to track real-time data usage. And lastly of course, just make sure you don’t use programs that use online video (which is by far the biggest gobbler of data).
Unfortunately Windows 10 auto-downloads everything and cannot be metered or stopped, at least not yet. I’ve been using Comcast at a stationary site but now I’ll be travelling and need to know if this information (hot spot) takes the place of cable internet? Yes, the MiFi essentially takes the place of the cable, but you need to have a data plan for it. Signing up for fixed cable if you’re stationary at a campground for an extended period makes A LOT of sense. The odd thing with putting Verizon on hold is that they will only do it for 90 days and then you have to call them again. We were another Millenicom to Verizon customer and haven’t been thrilled with working with Verizon directly. My understanding was that if you try to toy with the options of the original grandfathered plan, you run the risk of losing the unlimited data.
I have one of the grandfathered Verizon unlimited data plans, and I’m afraid to do ANYTHING.
For instance, all of AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile each claim that they have the fastest or most reliable 4G LTE network in the United States.
The decision to choose one carrier or another will relate to where you live, what your data consumption is like and other factors. We strived to use the most up-to-date information available, but it is important to understand that carriers are rapidly expanding their networks as we speak.
Verizon claims to provide the best coverage in the United States, and has the only 100% 4G LTE network nationwide.
The network provides two times the LTE coverage of any other network, according to the carrier, with a very saturated network presence in the northeast, midwest and east coast in general. The CDMA network’s extensive coverage delivers high-speed data to everyone from city dwellers to those living in smaller, rural towns — perfect for those traveling, too.
Verizon’s planned VoLTE, or Voice Over LTE, rollout will see CDMA discontinued and allow for unlocked LTE smartphones in the near future.
The GSM network also has less traffic than Verizon, potentially leading to faster speeds, with VoLTE support rolling out and support for simultaneous voice and data.
The network decreases in scale when you start heading out west, particularly in less-populated areas of Montana, Oregon and Nevada. But when you travel out to more rural areas in the United States, don’t expect to be getting a full five bars — or any, for that matter.
The carrier claims to have enhanced its nationwide 3G and 4G LTE networks, leading to fewer dropped calls, stronger indoor signals and quicker access to email and streaming music and video. The CDMA network also supports HD Voice for providing next-generation call quality and clarity. If you’re a prospective iPhone 6 user looking to save a few dollars, than it is a decision you will have to make.
While the carrier has been pushing to reinvent the industry by removing annual service contracts, introducing affordable prepaid plans, ushering in a monthly installment program, supporting Wi-Fi calling and more, its network is not quite yet as impressive as the competition. But when you go on a road trip through upstate and western New York, for example, I can attest from personal experience that you will quickly default to 2G service or no signal at all. T-Mobile already claims to have the fastest nationwide 4G LTE network in the United States in terms of download speeds, perhaps because it has less traffic on its network, but its coverage is still subpar compared to the big three above. T-Mobile has built its network to be data strong, with more capacity than any other major national carrier. You can also get unlimited talk, text and 2 GB of 4G LTE data through the Simple Starter plan for just $45 per month during an ongoing promotion. The GSM network, which is being upgraded from 2G to more 4G LTE through mid 2015, covers over 230 million Americans and has 96% coverage from coast to coast. These plans (formerly called Inpulse) come in a few flavors: Smartphone 4G and 3G, Basic Monthly and Pay As You Go. However, unlike some other plans, you don't get to just throttle down to 3G after using up your data allotment. This is perfect if you have friends and family members who have Verizon phones (they don't have to be prepaid).
If you use the phone every day, you would have a minimum charge of $361.35 plus the activation fee of $25 plus 10 cents per minute of calls or text messages. Compared to a contract plan or even to some of the other prepaid plans, you could save maybe $400-$500 a year. If you will primarily text people with Verizon phones, you can get their $10 a month bundle.
Verizon has extended the length of some of the calling cards to match those of other companies. It makes sense then, to buy airtime in $100 increments especially if you don't use a cell phone all that much.
For the basic plans, you can choose from about five or six phones ranging from a basic flip phone like the Samsung Gusto or LG Revere to QWERTY slider phones like the Pantech Caper and even a touchscreen or two like the LG Extravert.
If you paid an activation fee for your prepaid phone, you have three days to return it and still get your activation fee back.


You can access it through their website as well and send a text message to almost any country. For any other country, you're better off using another phone or buying an international calling card. Though the forum is for all voice and broadband issues, the search button seems pretty effective for finding posts about their prepaid service. For those of you just getting into this, I really recommend researching all your options by buying the most excellent The Mobile Internet Handbook (just updated this year), checking the latest articles on the RV Mobile Internet Resource Center and, if you want to go into even more depth, joining the Mobile Internet Afficionado group. You might get a cheaper up-front deal on a phone with a 2-year contract, but you invariably pay more over the long term and you are immediately locked in and at the whim of waiting out the contract. We’ve been able to ditch and pick-up the best new plans as they come out without any long-term ties. Just make sure you chose your phone model carefully since the phone you buy determines which network you’ll end up on. My recommendation if you’re serious about this is to read about the process in detail on some of the phone forums or follow the MIA guide (you must be a member for the latter). We’ve only really used this set-up once since the stock antenna does the job most of the time, but I like having it around. Note that all opinions are 100% my own and I only link to products we personally use, thoroughly love and absolutely recommend! I didn’t resolve this issue in my reading up because I never got around to figuring how to compute how much data I would need.
Hope you got credit for all the junk I ordered thru your Amazon link from your RV hacks from a couple years ago. We also hit a similar 5 GB 24 hour period on the Oregon Coast around the time of the big storm you also experienced at Cape Blanco. I have done all the things you suggested and believe there is already a fairly significant difference in data usage. Most of these plans are going for more like $400-$800 now, plus it’s trickier to get them transferred to your name. We recommend using this post as a reference to support your own decision on which carrier is best for you. However, I would often times lose bars when I was inside or apartment or elsewhere indoors.
It also offers unlimited data and text in over 120 countries at no extra charge, which is honestly a steal if you’re someone that travels abroad on even an occasional basis. You are only considered to be roaming when you are outside their digital coverage area for your plan. Even if you're a very occasional user, I don't recommend this plan unless you really want Verizon's coverage but not one of their other plans. If you use 600 minutes or text messages a year (less then 2 minutes a day), that comes to $60. This bundle allows unlimited texting on the Verizon network and also includes 250 messages to anyone outside the network. If you order online, even though you paid no activation fee, you may have to pay a restocking fee - no kidding.
Also you can actually make roaming calls from a few places like Puerto Rico, Mexico, Canada, the Virgin Islands and Bermuda. Clicking on their text message map brings up the various mobile networks in that particular country. What may work perfectly for us might not work for you (or might not be worth the cost to you). There are real risks involved in getting an unlimited plan and real risks involved in how long these plans will be around (there are ZERO guarantees!), but for us it was worth it. Again, NOT for everyone and NOT something I would recommend as a standard due to the initial costs & risks (most folks are better off with a Family Share plan), but it might be worth it for some.
I’m watching prices on the TPMS device, since I had that on my jeep for years and it was invaluable.
So, one of the first things I did was stop automatic downloads on my windows and for any and all programs I could find.
Once you have a plan you can either run it from your phone (by hot-spotting the phone) or from a MiFi (like the 6620L). All articles, images, logos and trademarks in this site are property of their respective owners. So you can be outside your local area, but as long as you're within their national digital network, you're not roaming. For folks like us who rely on a pretty hefty amount of data this was a very attractive proposal. We managed to snag an unlimited plan a few days before the particular method we used to get it went extinct. We typically just slip our 6620L MiFi into the Wilson Sleek cradle, run the antenna wire out the window and put the stock antenna on the roof (it’s magnetic and needs a metal ground-plane to function properly). I’m still trying to figure out how I accidentally use up 3g data on phone in one day!!!!!
Since I go off road so much, its almost a necessity for getting back on the hwy to know if you’ve given yourself a problem with that last lava field your dragged your poor trailer across.
Thanks again, you are an absolute “Fountain of Information”, love your website!!!
Makes total sense, and it’s certainly another (unlimited plan) option for folks out there who are willing to go that route. The only issue that we have seen happen is that you will not switch over to a VZ tower if you get any signal from Sprint. You may have to learn to limit how much data you use since cellular plans are limited and most people use way more data at home than they think. That can result in having a poor signal even though you know there is a good VZ signal available. If you have BIG files that require a lot of data to transfer you can always find public WiFi (e.g. That said, it has worked well for us and we have experienced the best customer service that I have seen in many years. My confusion stems from the difference in setting up one of our phones as a hotspot or using a MiFi.
