T-Mobile’s Personal Coverage Check offers street-level cellphone coverage maps

T-Mobile’s Personal Coverage Check offers street-level cellphone coverage maps:

T-Mobile Personal Coverage Check

T-Mobile just did something we wish every wireless carrier would do: they’re adding detailed street-level coverage maps that’ll let you enter any address in the US and find out just how good (or bad) a signal you should expect to get there (according to the map, we get superb coverage here in lower Manhattan). Obviously they can’t guarantee that you’ll get four bars actually inside your home or office—there are too many variables to deal with once you’re indoors—but anyone thinking of switching to T-Mobile would be crazy not check this first.

Don’t get me wrong … T-Mobile still isn’t the greatest provider in the world, but they’re damn cheap. Pretty sweet app though.

    I have to agree. If you look at the other major carriers (Cingular, Verizon, Sprint) they don’t give a tenth of the detail. Verizon shows the whole nation having solid coverage. The best thing about what T Mobile is doing is that it sets an accurate expectation up front. There may be spots where I won’t get the best coverage, but at least I know.
