Spectrum Mobile vs. Verizon Coverage

Spectrum Mobile uses Verizon towers, so coverage is the same between the two carriers.

Spectrum Mobile even gets access to Verizon’s domestic roaming partners.

Domestic roaming is where your phone uses a partner network for coverage in areas where your primary network doesn’t have service. 

Most times, prepaid cell phone carriers don’t get access to the same domestic roaming agreements that are negotiated by the bigger carriers.

However, Spectrum Mobile actually does get access to domestic roaming.

All this means is you’ll have more coverage in more places.

You’ll have exactly the same coverage footprint as Verizon postpaid customers directly. You’ll even have more options for getting connected thanks to Spectrum Mobile’s extensive network of free Wi-Fi hotspots that you can use. 

Spectrum Mobile vs. AT&T Coverage

Spectrum Mobile’s coverage is similar to AT&T’s coverage.

Spectrum Mobile’s LTE network covers 67.4%% of the U.S. and AT&T’s LTE network covers 78.1% of the U.S.:

When it comes to 5G, Spectrum Mobile has less coverage than AT&T.

Only 14.5% of the U.S. is covered by Spectrum Mobile 5G, whereas an impressive 43.3% is covered by AT&T 5G:

Data speeds are similar between the two carriers. 

Our crowd-sourced data shows that AT&T and Spectrum Mobile both got 61.2 Mbps median download speeds and 11.3 Mbps and 11.7 Mbps for upload speeds, respectively.

Spectrum Mobile and AT&T will likely be suitable choices for many consumers, particularly in cities and in more rural areas. 

Spectrum Mobile does offer a slight advantage with its network of Wi-Fi hotspots though, which is something AT&T does not offer.

Check AT&T coverage and data speeds in your area using our interactive AT&T coverage map.

Spectrum Mobile vs. T-Mobile Coverage

Spectrum Mobile has broader network coverage when compared to T-Mobile.

Spectrum Mobile covers 67.4% of the United States, whereas T-Mobile covers 46.6%, so you’re more likely to have service on Spectrum Mobile:

However, Spectrum Mobile has less 5G coverage than T-Mobile.

Even though Spectrum Mobile 5G covers over 230 million Americans, it only covers 14.5% of the land area in the U.S.

T-Mobile's 5G network, meanwhile, covers 325 million Americans and 36.0% of the U.S.:

In terms of data speeds, there is a noticeable difference between the two carriers. 

According to our crowd-sourced data, Spectrum Mobile's median download speed stands at 61.2 Mbps and its median upload speed is 11.7 Mbps. 

T-Mobile boasts much faster data speeds. It got 152.3 Mbps for its median download speed and and 17.3 Mbps for its median upload speed.

The better network for you likely depends on your preferences.

Spectrum Mobile provides a more extensive overall network coverage, making it a suitable choice for users who prioritize connectivity in a wider range of locations. In contrast, T-Mobile offers a larger 5G coverage area and significantly faster data speeds, making it an attractive option for those who want blazing fast speeds on their smartphone.
