Sensorly 4G LTE Coverage Comparisons


Recommended Posts

I thought it might be interesting to compare the Sensorly 4G LTE maps of Sprint, The Dark Side (AT&T), and Verizon.

 

Clearly, Sprint is behind The Dark Side, but only very slightly behind. Even Verizon, while it has very broad coverage, is rather spotty and incomplete.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

(Maps were collected at about 7:00 PM EST, Tuesday, November 20.)

 

(Also, we should probably note that Sprint LTE mappers are obsessed, and many are likely

to be deranged :jester: and may drive many, many miles trying to find that elusive LTE,

while Dark Side and Verizon mappers may be slightly more normal.)

 

(Thanks to Dkoellerwx for helping me show the full US map. Click on each image to see it in

a larger size.)

To see the whole US, click the fullscreen button on the upper right side of the map :tu:

course, then you can't switch between providers

 

Not even if you pay the ETF :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

Yeah, they have to deal with data caps. Sprint users could care less.

And they apparently haven't looked at the data usage. Very very little data is used.

Checked the data usage on my phone for sensorly last month. It had used 315mb of data, if you only get 2gb you might not want to use the program that much.

    • Luckily, that hasn't arisen in my area where I am, aside from having B14 (well, ALL of AT&T signal) not work at all in Coosa county, Alabama. I wish there was a service for first responders that would go to ANY available carrier, provider, etc..and in the absolute worst case scenario, would give us service. I've been on an ambulance, trying to find an address, and my driver actually had to pull over and we pulled out a map book and tried to find the road using the "old fashioned way".. and that takes valuable time away that sometimes may be vital to someone surviving. BUT, I will say that I've only seen that in Coosa county... both my Tmo and AT&T phones had zero service and I couldn't get GPS, and neither could my driver (VZW service). Maybe satellite will help with that in those times where that occurs.. but that's an extreme example.     Edit to add: Let me add some context to this.. Coosa county isn't regular coverage area for my job.. so it's not a regular thing that we are dispatched to Coosa county.. and actually, there's been a change and that county now has it's own ambulance service that operates.. so the only time we might receive a request is if it's a multiple casualty scenario, or it's a transfer going home from our contracted hospital.  The way that reads above, it may seem like we are just out without some sort of GPS gadget to direct us on where to go, but for the most part, we know our coverage area pretty well. Dispatch can also give us cross streets for reference inside our coverage area (and our home county). Coosa just isn't a regular area for my job to run in. 
    • "Priority" doesn't mean "exclusivity."  When emergency services don't need B14, AT&T can use it for everyone else.  The trade-off is that when it is needed for emergency services, they not only get all of B14, but they have also arranged for priority on the rest of the AT&T network as well.  Beats having spectrum sitting unused most of the time and then not having enough when disaster strikes, as it could be without a partnership with a wireless company like AT&T. - Trip
    • I've wondered if being on the first responder plan has the priority over other 'regular' lines in the same way firstnet does (or, supposed to do with B14...I've seen normal customers on AT&T hit B14 so it's not {specifically} for Firstnet only)...  
    • T-Mobile prices people pay are all over the map. The free lines are key, so take them if ever offered again.  Your priority level would be a key factor for your price.  Only T-Mobile would know the average prices people pay.  Samsung has been offering very good deals at time of new model introductions so I have gone that route for factory unlocked, which allows me to also have a Verizon priority MVNO for when T-Mobile signal fails or I manually override.
    • I also wanted to post a speed test result.. I only do these once in a while from my home area because we are gonna be the last to see changes, like load balancing.  Right now they are digging all over the place for fiber installs, so I'm not sure what the hold-up is on making the upload speed a little more in-line with download speeds, but here is the most recent from my area:   https://www.speedtest.net/my-result/a/10133670525
