Ever been traveling and wondered if you were going to get in or out of 3G coverage? Maybe you’re just curious of the coverage in general where you currently at? Maybe you’ve moved and looking for which company has the best coverage? Whatever spin or usage that you can think of, the people behind Two Steps Beyond have recently had an app released in the App Store that can show you the coverage maps of the 4 major wireless providers. ( AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, and T-mobile)
The funny thing is, this app is for the iPhone, which was still solely under AT&T at the time of the apps initial release, and this app basically can be used to show how poor AT&T’s 3G coverage is compared to Verizon and the other carriers. A quick example: below are the AT&T 3G map and the Verizon 3G map showing what coverage I receive where I travel for work. The blue marker marks my location when pulling up these maps. (home)
So as it is clear, Verizon has a very clear lead over AT&T in terms of 3G coverage in Kentucky (and Tennessee from the looks of it). This is just a funny spin on the usage of the app Coverage? though. In all reality, for anyone that is travelling, this app is an absolute must, especially if you do a lot of work, and that data coverage is an all important aspect for you. A great idea, a great concept, and perfectly executed for the smartphone traveler.
**The app is also always being updated with the latest information regarding the coverage areas. Version 2.0 added 4G coverage and new map overlays.
