The four major cellular carriers are constantly battling to attract you as a subscriber with what often sounds like a sensational offer seemingly every week.

The reality of these ‘deals’ is that if their quality of service where you spend most of your time is spotty, an ‘incredible deal’ is pretty useless.

Before deciding to jump from one company to another, there’s a wonderful tool that can help you make a more informed decision. lets you properly evaluate the major network’s coverage where you work, live & travel.

I always start with where I live so I can get a good overall rating for each company that covers reliability, speed indexes and data speeds as well as call and text performance so I know the strengths and weaknesses of each where I would need them.

One of my favorite features is the ‘ overage Map' because it provides detailed cell-based maps of call quality, data speeds and the availability of 4G LTE service from each company.

Root Metrics also has a mobile app which you can use to help gather performance information when you are out and about.
