Coverage provides an at-a-glance “universal” coverage map by interactively overlaying the coverage maps from the four major nationwide US cellular providers.
We came up for the idea last summer when we set up camp in a beautiful field of wildflowers along the continental divide in Colorado with strong AT&T and Sprint signals. We planned to spend a few days catching up on work, until AT&T notified us that we had used up our 24MB “Off Network” allowance for the month, and Sprint emailed us to let us know that our Aircard had exceeded their 300MB Roaming cap. Yet neither our iPhone, iPad, or Sprint Aircard in our Macs gave us any indication we were “roaming” until after we were notified that we would be shut off until the end of the month.
If only there were an easy way to look up where we might be roaming, and where the nearest 3G might be, without needing to go online to do it….
