Visible vs. Verizon Coverage

Visible runs on the Verizon network, so coverage is the same between the two carriers.

Visible even gets access to Verizon’s domestic roaming partners.

Domestic roaming is where your phone switches to a partner network for coverage in areas where your primary network doesn’t have service. Many times, prepaid carriers like Visible are not able to provide service in areas where their parent network does not have service. However, in Visible’s case, they are able to use the existing roaming agreements in place by Verizon to provide service.

So in parts of Nebraska, for example, where Verizon may not have built out native coverage just yet, Visible customers can roam on the Viaero Wireless network for service.

Viaero Wireless is a local network operator in Nebraska and allows certain carriers to use them for coverage.

Having access to domestic roaming coverage areas helps give Visible some of the best coverage possible, and makes it the same as Verizon coverage here in the United States.

Visible vs. AT&T Coverage

Visible’s coverage is very similar to AT&T’s coverage,.

Visible covers 71.5% of the United States and AT&T covers 74.6%.

With 5G coverage, it’s a different story though. Visible has under half the 5G coverage as AT&T. AT&T covers 41.4% of the US with 5G, while Visible covers only 14.7%. 

Both Visible and AT&T offer similar coverage to one another, and likely both carriers will be great options in many areas.

Check our AT&T coverage map to see a detailed view of what AT&T service is like in your area.

Visible vs. T-Mobile Coverage

Visible’s coverage is a bit better than T-Mobile’s coverage.

Visible covers an impressive 71.5% of the area in the US, compared to just 59.5% covered by T-Mobile.

That said, T-Mobile has over triple the 5G coverage than Visible does. T-Mobile boasts 49.0% 5G coverage compared to Visible’s 14.7% 5G coverage.

Both carriers will likely provide adequate coverage in major cities.

However, Visible’s larger coverage footprint will likely come in handy outside of major cities and could be a better pick in more rural parts of the country.

You can check T-Mobile coverage in your area using our T-Mobile coverage map.
