with an average of
aaaaand you would be correct. gold star.
EDIT: meh, what the hell, have an actual gold star
EDITthe2nd: and our survey tool is just our app!
I'm one of the founders of the site. Just want to say that we know that we don't have data absolutely everywhere but the reason we started OpenSignal is because although the mobile operators show maps with coverage over a larger area they are based on predicted coverage and they aren't actually able to measure coverage in all those areas (and the tendency is to overestimate coverage). Our goal is to build a purely empirical map so that we can confidently say that where we mark coverage, you can be sure that there is coverage (or vice versa - we can also record areas that we confirm don't have coverage). This model relies on the power of the crowd to help us build up this map but we've had over 13million people download the app so far and if enough people download the app and contribute data we can build the definitive source of data on wireless coverage. We want to change the information balance in the wireless industry so that you don't have to rely on operators telling you that they have coverage in a particular area but put the information in your hands so you make the best decision on which operators is best for you based on real world data from other users of the app.
Note - we've got loads of improvements to the coverage maps planned over the next few months. If you have any additional feature requests please let us know, we'd love to hear from you!
If you would like to get involved you can find the apps here:
iOS app: https://itunes.apple.com/app/opensignal/id598298030
OpenSignal can do spot measurements at least
This app will let you test bandwidth, both with wifi and mobile data. The location is stored, and shown on google maps.
It's a pretty neat app, it can also show locations and direction to nearby cell towers :)
>Get the one who has best coverage and speeds in your area. That's the only rule.
Yep! I think this app will help: OpenSignal
What city are you in? Also, have you tried using OpenSignal to see how reception should be in your area? I also use LTE Discovery to reset my radio and ping the best cell stations (this improves my signal A LOT). I'm on Sprint in rural areas and the coverage is atrocious. However, I can usually get my PH-1 to find a better station that it otherwise wouldn't have found. However, I've never had a dropped call and I never am out of service, so maybe I'm just geographically blessed by comparison.
FYI, Motorola devices have among the best reception. Their cellular IP portfolio is massive and they've always been strong in that regard. The Nexus 6 (also my previous device) is no exception, gets marginally better reception but has slower LTE speeds.
Le recomiendo esta aplicación https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.staircase3.opensignal se utiliza en la industria de telecomunicaciones para hacer benchmarks de todos los operadores. Puede revisar velocidad promedio en donde viva o trabaje. Generalmente, Tigo tiene el mejor servicio.
I install the OpenSignal app on my phone and use that to check coverage before I go anywhere remote, then just hotspot off my dual sim phone (switch network depending on which is fastest).
I'm looking at buying a Huawei E5576 in the near future because it's cheap and previous generations of similar devices that I've owned from Hiawei have been fine.
Use Open Signal.
I think it's advertised as 128kbps, but it varies widely + and -.

Di cek dulu area kamu yg sinyal bagus apa https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.staircase3.opensignal
Nanti setelah cek dgn sim card yg ada, bisa dilihat komparasi dgn operator lain di posisi itu
Entel, Movistar, WOM and Claro have their own networks, the rest (Virgin, Simple, VTR, etc) are virtual providers using the infrastructure provided by the first 4.
Opensignal is a good app, try it, https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.staircase3.opensignal&hl=en
Depende mucho de la zona en la que vivas. Te recomiendo que descargues OpenSignal (android / iOS) y uses la opción "coverage" para ver cuál proveedor tiene mejor señal
get this app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.staircase3.opensignal
it will tell you where the tower you're connecting to is located. Then make sure you have as close to a line of sight as possible. Signal penetrates windows almost perfectly, wood decently, concrete and brick pretty poorly, and steel not at all. Might even benefit from a well-placed mirror. Apps won't affect what the signal strength is reported as, though.
One of the towers she is connecting to has the wrong time (maybe DST breakage). You're not seeing the same problem because for whatever reason you're not on the same tower.
An app like OpenSignal should be able to tell you the ID of the tower you're connected to for confirmation.
This just means that there is no data available as this program is entirely crowd sourced. If you wish to help them out with this map I would suggest downloading the app on iOS or Android in order to contribute your own data.
Perhaps Celcom's coverage in your area is poor? You can check via cell services coverage map like Nperf and Opensignal.
Ich empfehle dir Mal die OpenSignal App herunter zu laden:
Darüber kannst du detailliert die Netzabdeckung der verschiedenen Anbieter checken. Meine persönliche Erfahrungen ist aber, dass die Telekom häufig am besten von der Netzabdeckung ist. O2 hat in dicht besiedelten Gebieten oder Häusern einen Vorteil.
Mint literally uses tmobile network, completely. So, whatever works on tmobile, works on mint but lower price (and priority on busy towers).
If you want to do a deep research, there is an app for android (Called opensignal) Link: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.staircase3.opensignal
Is literally maintained by users, so the map will show REAL signal coverage for every different company.
Also sometimes you got signal but there is only one tower serving 1k users so you barely send a message that requires internet (whatsapp, fb, etc)
I use OpenSignal to check user signal maps when I have questions about service without physically going to a place, like travel/hiking/etc. Try the app and filter for AT&T near the address you have in mind.
I keep downloaded maps for my local area and I add more maps when traveling to cover the areas I'm planning on going or may end up in.
I think I recall you mentioning you're in West Virginia, if that's the case then I'd just download the whole state. I haven't been thru there in quite a few (10ish) years but Sprint, AT&T, and Boost Mobile all had big dead zones when I did, cannot speak for Mint, didn't have them at the time.
But basic map data is pretty small, if you're not using satellite view or live traffic and have signal I don't imagine it'd be a problem.
Opensignal has user generated maps that are a good way to get an idea of a providers data coverage.
Walk up to their premises on a Telstra phone. I know staff who have Telstra network phones that work perfectly fine. That area is geographically between mobile towers - you can check this yourself with apps like this OpenSignal. It has a compass pointing you to the nearest tower.
I just use the "Open Signal" app and it draws a map to the tower my phone is connected to.
if you like, have a look at Opensignal. As stated on their app description, it should be able to test/provide:
Hopefully, it can help you :)
OpenSignal, mapa pra te ajudar a encontrar zonas de sinais bons de 3G E 4G na sua área
I would recommend downloading an app called OpenSignal. This will give you an idea of download speed for some major phone network. 3 was pretty bad in London
Appstore OpenSignal for Android
Also check out the Open Signal app, which can have more complete maps for some areas than Root Metrics.
You might be able to see average measured data speeds in your area using an app OpenSignal Play Store link | App Store link
Pakai app ini untuk tau provider apa yg paling cepat di area anda https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.staircase3.opensignal karena beda 500 meter saja sudah bisa beda pengalaman. Kalau lokasi gw sih Telkomsel jauh diatas yg lain untuk stability and speed
L'infrasttuttura Iliad è in divenire, di pochi giorni fa l'accordo con Cellnex per potenziare la presenza 4g/5g, ma ci si può orientare oltre che andando a naso/vista anche utilizzando anche app tipo OpenSignal .
ok, which on ISP are you getting the packet loss ?
Take a screenshot of the packet loss, and email it to them along with your complaint. If they don't respond, post it on their Facebook/Titter page along with your complaint.
OpenSignal keeps a track of your speed tests, so you can test various times in the day, for multiple days, and then send screenshots to your ISP.
Acabei de fazer um teste no celular pelo OpenSignal:
ping: 12 ms
download: 115.53 Mbps
upload: 69.29 Mbps
Se não me engano a internet aqui é Vivo fibra de 100 (MB/s ou Mbps?).
Try the OpenSignal app (Play Store/App Store). What does it show on the 'cell towers' map screen in terms of the tower you're connected to? Maybe a new tower?
Apart from moving the only way to fix your issue is to get a smart app on your phone to analyse the best part of the house to be in. Learn where the nearest cell towers are and face your devices towards them. Make a log of bad times when it is not working well. For example my friends internet cuts out at 3:30pm every weekday. The reason? A local school finishes and all the school kids turn on their phones at the same time. Download overnight and cache as much as you can & don't depend on a connection. If your lively hood depends on the net then move or find an internet cafe.
This is the app I use https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.staircase3.opensignal
In case you don't know, there are programs like opensignal that let you see more information about the towers you're connected to.
WiMan sounded great tool so I searched for it and others who. I stumbled upon OpenSignal in my Android wishlist.
I feel I should promote these, being an FOSS advocate. I know not if it will work for you but it's worth a try. On their [site](OpenSignal.com) they have just released an iOS app very similar to WiMan. They have an email list to be notified for their soon to be Android release.
IDK about these guys phone prices but Freedompop and republic wireless has like less than $20 a month plans with everything unlimited but has WiFi calling preferred. It's Sprint network so another one to check into, but there's that one map that had crowdsourced coverage maps, I'll see if I can find that and I'll update this post
Open signal it's called, works on desktop too
You could just instal open signal....
Open Signal is probably your best bet, as they collect crowdsourced data on signal strength and latency for all of the major carriers. Check their map out online, or download the app to help contribute. My favorite feature is zooming in on part of the city and tapping "compare performance" to get aggregate download/upload speeds, signal strength, and latency in a handy summarized table. You can also get a decent picture of dead zones and tower locations from the map itself. Perfect for diagnosing coverage issues.
Unfortunately, the data are only as good as the people and phones who have the app installed, so your mileage may vary.
EDIT: Root Metrics and Sensorly are two others you might try as well, just in case they have more (and more recent) users in your area.
This thing is probably much more useful for finding coverage in your area.
There is app called open signal. Check it out
Wie wer anderes schon geschrieben hat O2 Netz. Hier ein allgemeiner Vergleich/Einschätzung.
Hier falls du konkret in deinem Nutzungsbereich nachgucken willst.
Opensingal bietet alternativ auch eine sehr gute Abdeckungskarte, welche auf echten Nutzerdaten basiert. Leider nur noch per App, nicht mehr auf deren Website.
Coba pake aplikasi ini, untuk cek mana yg paling stabil di daerah lu
Here's the link for the app for android
OpenSignal may offer what you are looking for.
Sorry but open signal is way better
Open signal here's a link to the play store https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.staircase3.opensignal
Christ. Maybe this will help.
Better yet, install the Open Signal app (iOS|Android) to help improve the crowd sourced data.
Disclaimer: It's the first service I found upon a quick google search just now. It's possible that other competing services are better. Either way, I hope this would help answer questions like this.
Here ya go. And I think they have an iOS version too
I checked google play, it doesn't seem to have the compass thing sadly. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.staircase3.opensignal&hl=en_US
Open signal will give a pretty good idea https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.staircase3.opensignal
better map https://opensignal.com/networks

Hi, think this maybe something you are looking for https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.staircase3.opensignal&hl=en
I use this: https://opensignal.com/
Or their app https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.staircase3.opensignal
It's crowdsourced and a little easier to use then cellmapper.net.
That's odd, especially the "not enabled" part, AG should not mess with it at all.
is this the app?
The information is crowdsourced from their app, for those interested.
Have you checked this app?
It contains a crowd-sourced map of mobile signal and comparisons.

Try using app called Open Signal (link), its help me decide what sim card i use at my destination
OpenSignal is the best in my opinion.
There is an app that lets you see coverage in a particular area.
Open signal https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.staircase3.opensignal
Open signal https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.staircase3.opensignal it's got pretty decent maps
it really could be any number of issues. off the top of my head there's a few things you could look at or check up on.
starting with the device itself. how old is it? did you set a data plan manually in the settings? (some smartphones allow you to set a limit on your data or at least give you warnings so you don't go over your monthly data plan depending on the manufacturer this could slow your data speeds). Look at your apps running in the background, bandwidth can be used up fast by lots of background app activities like downloads and syncing that slows the internet speed. Check the network and data settings on your phone to make sure you're receiving the fastest data speeds possible, check that it's not using LTE or 3G over 4G/5G. Things like low battery and your location (whether you're in a valley or surrounded by mountains etc...) can cause bad coverage too.
with regards to the network and your carrier, what is your plan like, are you receiving 3G, 4G maybe even 5G? you might want to upgrade if you're only using a 3G plan. Carriers tend to introduce what is known as throttling. For example Verizon in the states has an unlimited 4G plan, and when users hit a threshold of 75GB they would implement throttling to slow down the browsing data speeds (check with your carrier if they implement throttling).
Because you said when you're close to an antenna you get better speeds, well depending on your carrier they might just have terrible coverage and when you're receiving slow speeds you could be on the outskirts of their coverage area. You can check this using an app, i know a good app for android called Opensignal where you can check your speeds and it'll show you a live coverage map. Where i live, there's terrible coverage in the countryside to the point you can't get any data or it's very slow if you do. If you're with someone like sky mobile, virgin mobile or O2 you might want to check what other carriers provide or what their coverage is like because depending on who you ask Three and O2 have some of the worst coverage in the UK.
If you're happy with your plan and want to try improve things i'd recommend checking your phone settings like i said above by making sure no background apps are ruining your speeds and you're not limiting your speeds with any settings. then you could try install the app 184.108.40.206., this is a public DNS resolver that provides a fast and private (more optimized) way to browse the Internet it replaces the connection between your phone and the internet with an improved protocol.
My own opinion is that it sounds like you're just getting bad coverage between your carriers cell towers.
Open Signal also does something similar.
OpenSignal is good for this, it uses crowdsourced data to map out coverage by carrier
I find OpenSignal handy when weighing the options. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.staircase3.opensignal
Isn't everyone using the Open signal app which shows you where the towers are to take pictures of?
P.S.: is that one, right? https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.staircase3.opensignal
There are websites that give you coverage maps. You don't necessarily need to use an app (and there are many, some associated with the websites, some not, for various platforms) and walk around for days, the websites collate that data from hundreds or thousands of people walking around running their app. Just look up the coverage map on the web and go from there.
BTW, one option if you find there is no single carrier that hits all the places you want to go would be to consider a dual SIM phone. You'd have two phone numbers, which could make incoming calls problematic, but at least you'd be able to get voice and data out without any trouble.
That is an app.
OpenSignal is a good one to try. It will record how long you are connected to each network type by hour, day, or month.
Open signal is another good one that does similar. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.staircase3.opensignal
Allegedly this app, but it's never worked for new.
I used OpenSignal and and Rootmetrics both for the longest time. Had them running in the background 24/7 for years until my phone started getting sluggish. Once I upgrade, I'll put them back on.
