‘Coverage’ for iPhone and iPad Shows You T-Mobile’s LTE Network

by Marianne Schultz

T-Mobile USA began offering pre-orders for the iPhone 5 today prior to the official launch of the device on its network on April 12. T-Mobile is offering some unique payment plans for Apple’s flagship smartphone along with some straightforward and competitively-priced plans compared to other US carriers.

If you’re tempted to switch to T-Mobile but want to check out its network coverage where you live, work, or travel compared to your current carrier, check out Two Steps Beyond’s Coverage app. Coverage just got updated to version 2013.4 and now includes T-Mobile’s LTE and 1900 MHz networks so you can see just how well a shiny, new, unlocked iPhone 5 will work for you.

The great feature about Coverage is that you can choose to view the coverage maps of multiple carriers at once so you can truly do a comparison if you’re looking to switch networks. Of course, coverage maps aren’t always accurately indicative of the quality of the call and data coverage you’ll actually experience in a given area, but it’s a good start that can help you with the decision to switch.

Coverage costs $2.99 and is compatible with the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad and requires iOS 5.0 or later. Two Steps Beyond has been very good about updating the app regularly to reflect the most recent carrier coverage maps so you can rest assured you’re seeing the latest data.

    I’ve been waiting for this app to go on sale since the last time you featured it, which was back in September of 2012. I might as well just buy it at this point.

    If your looking for coverage, simply go to the services (Carrier) website and check. As most people have one carrier, this is a easy thing,rather than buying an app that looks it up. C’mon people are we to lazy to do this?

    I haven’t seen very much activity in Denver just yet, but I am still looking forward to using the new LTE network when it arrives. I bought the most recent iPhone 5 and after getting a taste of how quick LTE can be, I am looking forward to it even more. Last weekend, I took a small vacation from work at DISH and got to try out the new network in Las Vegas. During the trip, I was able to keep up with my shows using the DISH Anywhere app and because of LTE, streaming quality was fantastic.
