    Tmobile



    At&t



    Sprint



    Verizon

    What should I be taking away from this info? I have service with all four carriers (phones/hotspots) who has me covered better? What would serve me best from a booster etc? At&t gives me best service generally speaking. My sprint hotspot used to be blazing fast but now just like At&t hotspots. Verizon is a close second to At&t except with hotspots which are mediocre. Tmobile phone is okay. Need to use it more I guess. I really want to get the best out of my hotspots with At&t, Verizon and sprint. Thanks

    Cellmapper isn't used to determine which carrier will give you the best signal in an urban area, only a cell strength app can do that. Cellmapper is used to see if there's a tower near you at all - in more rural areas. There may be one available, but you're on the wrong side of a steel building for it to do you any good. Other than that, it's mainly for curiosity.

    AT&T and Verizon normally have the best coverage in urban areas. TMobile comes behind them, and Sprint is a distant third. If your hotspots are at fixed locations, just measure the signal strengths of the carriers at each location. If you'll be moving, find dead spots and see if another carrier covers that spot.

    What cell strength app would you recommend? I just not my Verizon hotspots are barely better than my sprint hotspots. They are at fixed locations sort of. I have moved them around our house to see any difference. I want to buy a WiFi booster that’s perfect and or antennas to help but I read antennas don’t offer much benefit. So idk.
