AT&T MVNO Coverage Maps Compared

phone bars

Last week, I posted an article comparing all of the Verizon MVNO coverage maps. Several of them were a little surprising, so I thought that I would go through all of the other Tier 1 carriers and compare maps of their MVNOs to see how they stacked up. While most MVNOs share the prepaid network of their primary carrier, some of them skimp on coverage to cut costs, and very few of them offer roaming in areas with no Tier 1 carrier network coverage. Today, we have a compilation of the AT&T MVNO maps. Most of them shared coverage with GoPhone, but did not offer roaming (represented by the lighter yellow areas). However, the maps were far more similar than the Verizon MVNO maps we saw last week. So, without any more ado, here are the AT&T MVNO maps: Once again, MVNOs not listed here share maps with the AT&T Prepaid/GoPhone map above (it’s the second orange map). For a full list of the main MVNOS, click here. All of these service maps were pulled right off of the website for the parent company earlier this week, so they should be fairly accurate. Reviews for most of these companies can be found on our site, with more reviews to come in the next couple of months. Were you surprised by any of the maps? Let me know in the comments!]]>

    Can’t speak for all of them but generally the Att Gophone map should be the one most trusted . Some of them are old maps , the ones with the huge coverage gaps especially. The ones from Ghz Cellular and Skyview are clearly from before the Alltel divested areas were added. Though some of these areas converted from cdma require a 3G gsm phone (umts/hspa) to get coverage, bottomline is that it increased Att’s gophone coverage /mvno coverage by a big margin. i consider Att the second best overall network to Verizon. Skyview is a sub mvno of H20 so certainly it is an older map.

      I agree, the GoPhone is probably the map to go with, but I find the differences in the maps kind of interesting. They are all just approximate anyway. As for being outdated, all of these maps were pulled directly from the websites of the companies a few days before they posted, so if they are old, then it means the sites are just outdated and I apologize. Most of the MVNOs not listed just linked to the standard GoPhone map.
