Cellular Coverage Tool




How often do you wonder whether you have the best cellular service where you live and work?

Do your friends have better service than you or is it the other way around?

The reality is that where you spend most of your time day and night will have the biggest impact on which providers is best suited to your needs.

Whenever you’re trying to figure out if it’s time to switch carriers, instead of asking your friends and family, use the real-world coverage map data that’s available at http://rootmetrics.com

It’s based on actual users on a cell-by-cell basis, so you can actually track the specific areas around your place of work and where you live.

You can get a generalized score for your entire city as well, so you get the best coverage around town.

If you download their app and use it around town, you will be contributing to the communities data, so others that are trying to make a decision can do so based on current measurement data that you helped provide!
