Coverage? – What’s included on each’s carriers layer?


Coverage? displays layers for each carrier. We’ve selected colors for each carrier that best matches their branding, and the darker the color indicates faster/newer coverage. You bring up a legend in the app’s info screen (top left hand corner).

For the three major US carriers, the layers include 5G mmW & 5G mid-band (HD subscription only), 5G NW, LTE and roaming. As of May 2022, we no longer display 3G as the carriers will have this phased out by year end.

  • Verizon – Displayed in shades of Red.  ‘Extended LTE’ is shown as a duller red in the LTE layer.
  • AT&T – Displayed in shades of Blue.
  • T-Mobile – Displayed in shades of pink/purple. Extended LTE is included in a darker purple layer on the LTE layer.
  • Sprint – Shows LTE and Roaming only, and will be removed in the summer 2022 release once the merger with T-Mobile is complete.

 

  • US Cellular  – Displayed in shades of orange, it includes their native 5G NW, LTE and roaming coverage.
  • Bell, Rogers & Telus (Canadian Carriers) – These optional carriers available by in-app purchase display the LTE coverage map for each. Purchasing this option is a one-time lifetime access to the Canadian carrier maps.
