Mint Mobile vs. T-Mobile Coverage

Since Mint Mobile runs on the T-Mobile network, coverage is about the same between the two carriers.

The only difference is that Mint Mobile doesn’t include domestic roaming.

Domestic roaming is where your phone switches to a partner network for coverage in areas where your primary network doesn’t have service. For example, T-Mobile’s native network doesn’t have coverage in large parts of Nebraska. Instead, T-Mobile customers will roam on the Viaero Wireless network for coverage. 

Viaero Wireless is a regional provider in Nebraska, and they made agreements with the three big carriers (T-Mobile, Verizon, and AT&T) so customers using the big three could roam on the Viaero Wireless network for service.

Unfortunately, Mint Mobile doesn’t have access to this roaming agreement, or others. 

Mint Mobile coverage will be limited to what the native T-Mobile network offers.

Mint Mobile vs. AT&T Coverage

Mint Mobile has less coverage than AT&T.

Even though both carriers cover over 99% of Americans, their coverage footprints are quite different.

Mint Mobile covers 46.6% of the U.S., while AT&T covers an impressive 78.1% of the U.S.:

Mint Mobile also has a bit less 5G coverage than AT&T.

You'll find 5G service on Mint Mobile across 36.0% of the country, whereas AT&T offers 5G service in 43.3% of the country:

Even though Mint Mobile's network is smaller than AT&T's, it does offer measurably faster data speeds.

Mint Mobile customers saw median download speeds of 152.3 Mbps, compared to 61.2 Mbps on AT&T.

Upload speeds were faster on Mint Mobile, too, with a median performance of 17.3 Mbps. AT&T's median upload speeds were 11.3 Mbps.

In major cities, both Mint Mobile and AT&T will likely perform well. If you travel to more rural areas, AT&T may be a better option.

Check our AT&T coverage map to see what AT&T's coverage and speeds look like in your area.

Mint Mobile vs. Verizon Coverage

Mint Mobile’s coverage is a bit less than Verizon's.

Mint Mobile's nationwide network covers 46.6% of the country, compared to 67.4% covered by Verizon:

That said, Mint Mobile has about 2.4x more 5G coverage than Verizon does.

You'll find 5G service on Mint Mobile in 36.0% of the country. Verizon, meanwhile, only has their 5G network available across 14.5% of the country:

According to our crowd-sourced speed test data, Mint Mobile also gets faster speeds than Verizon does.

Mint Mobile customers got median download speeds of 152.3 Mbps down and 17.3 Mbps up.

Verizon got median speeds of just 69 Mbps down and 9.3 Mbps up.

Both carriers will likely provide adequate coverage in major cities. 

Outside of cities, Verizon’s greater overall coverage area may be beneficial.
