Tag Archive for: cell phone coverage

Here is a little helpful information for any residents looking for a cell phone carrier or thinking about switching. CNET has launched a beta version of a program to compare cell phone coverage in specific areas. The info was collected using real consumer model wireless handsets in the field. The information was geo-tagged and sent to special servers for analysis. (Keep in mind service is subject to change). You can also compare data coverage and see a map depicting dead zones. When I typed 90026 into the zip code field it came up with the following results for signal strength.

  • Sprint 83%
  • AT&T 74%
  • T-Mobile 74%
  • Verizon 65%
