T-Mobile, in an effort to provide even more transparency, has announced a new coverage map that it claims is more accurate than anything used by other carriers. Called “Verified Coverage”, the new map is updated twice per month and includes data that is generated by its user-base. Utilizing information provided by third-party apps, prospective customers can see what sort of coverage they might expect and what the data speeds might be.
According to T-Mobile, the LTE footprint now blankets more than 265 million Americans; the expectation is for 300 million by the end of 2015.
The new Verified Coverage map is now live on T-Mobile’s website.
