Coverage? focuses on helping mobile bandwidth junkies find cell signal as they roam. Save time looking up coverage on the carrier's websites, compare their claims head to head and better plan your travels to stay connected.

** The carrier's maps in your pocket: This app contains regional level maps based off of each major carrier's data map - as found on their website as of our last update. Quickly overlay the carriers you use to create your own personalized coverage map on your device.

** No internet needed: Our proprietary coverage maps are stored within the app on your device - no downloading needed! Quickly access where you're supposed to get a signal, even when you have none.

** Urban and rural areas: Maps are at a regional level, and cover the entire continental USA, Canada, Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands.

** Carriers included: AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint, US Cellular.
** Canadian Carriers: Bell, Telus, Rogers (optional unlock)

** Know where to roam: view 5G, LTE, 3G, and roaming areas as overlays, focus on finding the coverage type you desire.

We created this app because we are full time 'technomads' ourselves who rely on mobile data to work remotely. Keeping this app updated is a priority for us, as we depend on it ourselves!

Coverage FAQ:
Q: Why aren't the maps more detailed or released more often?
A: Our map updates require a lot of meticulous labor intensive processing. There's just no practical way to issue a new update every time a new tower is turned on. We monitor new coverage and try to find balance between effort & staying current. This generally means at least a couple updates a year.

Q: What makes 'Coverage?' unique?
A: There are great apps out there that collect user submitted signal reports - we recommend them and use them ourselves. However, those apps are only useful in markets with an active user base. We took a different approach with Coverage? - we needed a tool to at least give us an idea of where signal should be - urban, rural, and out in the boonies.

The maps in 'Coverage?' are provided in partnership with Ookla, and represent proprietary interpretations of the coverage reported by each carrier. You should not rely on the maps in Coverage to be perfectly precise or absolutely timely.

Ongoing map updates have been free - but to support the ongoing development costs, we now allow customers to subscribe to higher resolution maps that will be updated more frequently.

Coverage does not report or predict signal strength (there are great apps out there for that!). We can make no promises as to where you'll *actually* get signal.. there are too many variables - towers, device, terrain, weather, etc.

So… Got Coverage?

Coverage? Lite 2020.12 Update
2020-12-15 Version History
MAJOR UPDATE: 5G Coverage Maps!
We are now able to include 5G coverage maps from AT&T, T-Mobile, US Cellular, and Verizon!

This is the biggest update to ‘Coverage? Lite’ in years, and it turns ‘Coverage? Lite’ into an ideal tool to track and compare where the carriers are deploying next generation cellular technologies. Subscribers to our “HD Maps Subscription” also get access to more frequent 5G map updates, and an exclusive layer showing which cities feature ultra-fast mmWave 5G (aka 5G+ or 5G UWB) coverage.

This mmWave layer can be toggled off and on as needed - and is currently featured on the AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon maps.

TIPS: The Base Layer selector on the bottom left of the screen lets you select whether to show just LTE coverage, LTE plus 3G, or to also include roaming coverage. You can also now choose to layer 5G maps on top, and you can turn off the base layer entirely to focus exclusively on 5G coverage.


Also new earlier in 2020:
* Canadian Coverage Maps!
We’re excited to be able to offer ‘Coverage?’ in Canada via an in-app upgrade, with LTE maps now available for the 3 major Canadian carriers - Bell, Telus and Rogers.

* U.S. Cellular: We also added support for the nation's fifth largest carrier this year, and are now including 5G maps as well!


We are able to keep this app updated thanks to your ongoing support and positive reviews. Thank you!
