My daughter just moved to Santa Cruz AREA of CA. Going 2 college. Best network down here BY FAR is VERIZON WIRELESS (her roommates have Sprint DOESN’T WORK AT ALL) & Metro (tMobile network) spoty AT BEST. They share Netflix & Hulu using my daughters Unlimited VERIZON Hotspot (what they save on their cable bill) pays for my daughter’s VERIZON Hotspot. I switched to Verizon cause I come here once a month (to bring the girls Supplies they’re Poor College students LOL) Here we provide 4G WiFi Maps & Speed Test. Find Signal & Data Now.

Based on having used AT&T and now Verizon in a fringe area, this app gives an accurate representation of device-reported signal strength. I switched carriers based on open signal reports from my area and found out what everybody already knew: if you want rural coverage, go with Verizon.
