We have t-mobile but their coverage is pretty spotty. Now that we just got an RV, trying to figure out whether we should be getting Verizon or ATT.

any recommendations for the remote spots?

T-Mobile. No trouble with coverage but I am a minimalist user [emoticon]

T-mobile ? Spotty ? We took a CC trip from Florida to the Rockies last year and never had a problem. We had phone AND hotspot nearly the entire trip unless we went way off civilized areas, like in the back-country. We have T-Mobile.

Verizon. The best in the nation. Others are slowly catching up.

OP-you are right to move off T mobile if traveling in western areas. Our friends have T mobile and frequently run into dead spots where we have Verizon coverage. You will get some dead spots with Verizon (as with any of them) but very few.

At One Time Verizon was #1 in the coverage Department but NOT 100%
AT&T #2 and T-Mobile #3 and Sprint.. forget about it.

Today.. If you have T-Mobile I'd check. my older T-mobile phones would Roam on AT&T and some other companies. but my new one lists Verizon as the alternate tower so you need to check with Tech Support to see who the alternate towers are.

I recently reviewed a SPRINT coverage map and was .. Rather impressed.

It seems that the big 4 (Verizon AT&T T-Mobile Sprint) are now all nearly the same in terms of total coverage but as I said NOBODY is 100% With the possiblity of some sat-phone outfits you really do not want to price.


Home is where I park it.

Verizon has worked for us from New Brunswick to the Nevada/Arizona/California area with no problems
