AT&T vs Verizon vs Sprint Coverage Comparison (Voice and Data)
March 27, 2012 in Basic Information by
Before choosing the right carrier, you should understand your needs. Ask yourself where and when you will mostly using your phone. Will it be used at home, at work, travelling? Do you use it alot during the day? night? or weekends?
You should also understand your coverage area, since it is not available everywhere and varies based on a number of factors. So you may have a very strength signal in some area, but having a low one within a few places, or even no coverage at all. Understanding coverage area where you will be using the phone at most is really important.
Voice and data coverage area is different, ask yourself if you mostly use either voice call, data, or both voice and data. Though these maps show very general coverage for entire regions. The maps are provided for informational purposes only and that actual coverage may vary. Don’t forget to get a trial period of the carrier to test the coverage area, if possible. Some wireless providers offer trial periods. While in the trial period, you may want to test out the phone within the areas where you intend to use it often to find out if the actual coverage satisfies your expectations.
