Map shows best cellular coverage down to your block

I recently received this email: Q: Hi Kim! My wife has Verizon. I have AT&T. My son uses Sprint. My daughter has T-Mobile. Which carrier is the best when it comes to coverage?

The U.S. leads the world in technology, so you would expect cellular coverage to be excellent almost everywhere. However, you know that is not the case if you constantly experience dropped calls.

With more and more people getting rid of their landlines, it's important to have strong cellular coverage inside your home. If you are thinking about moving into a new home or apartment, there is a site that will help you find the best cellular coverage.

We found this great hidden tool that will help you see how mobile networks perform anywhere in the U.S. Find out who offers the best signal where you live, work and play.

Best of all, the map is zoomable down to the street level!

The results that helped build the tool came from RootMetrics' professional findings along with those crowdsourced from people using its free app.

On the map, you can see call performance, the fastest speeds and the best network technologies in your area.

It's a little difficult to use. But it's not impossible.

On the next page of this free tip, we walk you through step-by-step how to see who offers the best coverage on your street.
