Who’s got that fast cell phone network? Who’s got the best coverage? Blah, blah, blah… who cares? They all suck, and they all think they have you by the short and curlies….

We live on the outskirts of nowhere… yet still get great cell reception from our provider. In fact, we realized long ago we could do without the house phone since our CellCo seems to be so reliable. Never a dropped call, never any reception problems, it’s just all good…

So, who do we use? AT&T with their wonderful coverage map? And their snooty iPhones? Nope… and friends that come over that do use them get spotty reception…

Verizon? They aren’t any better, no matter what they say…

We won’t even talk about Sprint… I don’t know very many people who do use them…

So, none of the ‘Big 3’ they all suck ass… they may have cool phones, but if they don’t work at my place, then what good are they?

The big Magenta, or T-Mobile is the one that works for us, they have more 4G coverage than any of the others right now, and it even works at the edge of nowhere, on my phone that’s not even designed to use their HSPA+ network.

Here are the results I got this morning… in the rain… in rural Southern Illinois, outside of the St Louis metro area… on a 3G phone, not 4G…

 

Fast Enough?
