New to ‘Coverage?’ this year - we have greatly improved the ability to place and manage your own custom pins on the map!
Now you can add pins by using the search tool, by entering GPS coordinates, or by pressing and holding to drop a pin on the map. And the new pin manager lets you edit and name pins, and select which ones that you want to see displayed.
Also new - if you also own our app ‘US Public Lands’ which tracks cellular coverage maps, your pin collection is shared automatically between US Public Lands and ‘Coverage?’ - making it easier than ever to scout ahead.
And of course - all the coverage maps in the app have also been updated with all the latest information, including the latest 5G rollouts.
NEW: 5G maps!
Directly overlay and compare cellular carrier coverage maps! Perfect for travelers - research where you're covered across the USA (and now Canada!!)

Coverage? focuses on helping mobile bandwidth junkies find cell signal as they roam. Save time looking up coverage on the carrier's websites, compare their claims head to head and better plan your travels to stay connected.
** The carrier's maps in your pocket: This app contains regional level maps based off of each major carrier's data map - as found on their website as of our last update. Quickly overlay the carriers you use to create your own personalized coverage map on your device.
** No internet needed: Our proprietary coverage maps are stored within the app on your device - no downloading needed! Quickly access where you're supposed to get a signal, even when you have none.
** Urban and rural areas: Maps are at a regional level, and cover the entire continental USA, Canada, Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands.
** Carriers included: AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint, US Cellular.
** Canadian Carriers: Bell, Telus, Rogers (optional unlock)
** Know where to roam: view 5G, LTE, 3G, and roaming areas as overlays, focus on finding the coverage type you desire.

We created this app because we are full time 'technomads' ourselves who rely on mobile data to work remotely. Keeping this app updated is a priority for us, as we depend on it ourselves!
Q: Why aren't the maps more detailed or released more often?
A: Our map updates require a lot of meticulous labor intensive processing. There's just no practical way to issue a new update every time a new tower is turned on. We monitor new coverage and try to find balance between effort & staying current. This generally means at least a couple updates a year.
Q: What makes 'Coverage?' unique?
A: There are great apps out there that collect user submitted signal reports - we recommend them and use them ourselves. However, those apps are only useful in markets with an active user base. We took a different approach with Coverage? - we needed a tool to at least give us an idea of where signal should be - urban, rural, and out in the boonies.

The maps in 'Coverage?' are provided in partnership with Ookla, and represent proprietary interpretations of the coverage reported by each carrier. You should not rely on the maps in Coverage to be perfectly precise or absolutely timely.
Ongoing map updates have been free - but to support the ongoing development costs, we now allow customers to subscribe to higher resolution maps that will be updated more frequently.
Coverage does not report or predict signal strength (there are great apps out there for that!). We can make no promises as to where you'll *actually* get signal.. there are too many variables - towers, device, terrain, weather, etc.
So… Got Coverage?
