What's NewMassive map update including:
- All carriers: AT&T, Verizon, Sprint & T-Mobile
- Return of full resolution T-Mobile maps
- Clearer edge boundaries on all maps
- Subtly faster performance of coverage map loading
We have been working behind the scenes to improve our map creation techniques, and this is our first experiment with trying a 6-week update cycle. We continue to try to find the right balance between keeping the app updated and the amount of effort required to update the maps and get through the approval process.
Thank you for your continued support and patience!
App DescriptionWhich iPhone 5 or iPad is right for you? LTE Finder helps you see who has LTE where you need it!
LTE Finder quickly & easily compares AT&T and Verizon's LTE Networks!
This is a special free LTE-only version of our hit app 'Coverage?' intended to provide travelers with a powerful tool for tracking down the nearest fastest bandwidth.
'LTE Finder' provides an at-a-glance, "universal", area overview, cellular LTE coverage map by interactively overlaying Verizon & AT&T's coverage areas. And for AT&T - know where you're getting true LTE 4G service, and not just HSPA+ displayed as 4G (if you see your AT&T device display '4G' and it's not on these maps, more than likely it's HSPA+, not LTE).
'LTE Finder' focuses on helping you select the right 4G carrier for your needs - as well as knowing where you can find the fastest mobile bandwidth across the USA.
** Know before you go: Avoid having to check each provider's coverage map individually to know where you're most likely able to keep connected in your travels.
** No internet needed: All coverage maps are stored locally, so you can check where coverage is most likely even when you have none.
Want to compare more? Check out our full app, Coverage? which provides maps for all carriers (AT&T, Verizon, Sprint & T-Mobile) and for all their data speeds - LTE, "4G", 3G, 2G and Roaming. It also features a search tool and is updated more frequently.
'Coverage?' is the ideal tool for those who travel and need to keep connected.
Q: My AT&T phone is displaying 4G service, but LTE Finder shows there's no LTE service - what's up?
A: AT&T has recently convinced handset makers to display their HSPA+ network (which was previously considered 3G) as 4G. LTE Finder only displays LTE, not HSPA+ (download our free '4G Finder' app if you want both - or our full Coverage? app for all coverage types) - helping you know where you're getting the fastest service.
Q: Why aren't the maps more detailed?
A: We can only include so much map detail in an app small enough to be downloaded wirelessly!
Q: What makes 'LTE Finder' unique?
A: There is no other tool out there that allows you to overlay coverage maps from all the major carriers. We have done the labor intensive work to create aligned, standardized interpretations of each carrier's reported coverage.
Note that the maps in LTE Finder are our own proprietary interpretations of the coverage reported by each carrier. You should not rely on the maps in LTE Finder to be perfectly precise or comprehensively up to date, though we intend to periodically update them (our full Coverage? update tends to be updated more frequently).
We can of course make no promises as to where you'll *actually* get signal. The goal of LTE Finder is to give you an indication of where you're most likely to catch a wave, not provide neighborhood level precision.
So… Got Coverage?
