AT&T Vs T Mobile?

Hi all, sitting here trying to do some trip planning and found myself having to use the WiFi at Loves because Verizon decided to slow me down so much I may as well have been offline. In fact, Google maps said just that.

Which got me looking, right now I only get 50gb before they drop my speeds to .47 mbps down as of tonight's speed test. Not even enough to load their own app to see what my usage is this month.

AT&T and T Mobile both have 100gb options which would work better for me, but I'm wondering if anyone here could tell me how the coverage compares between the two while OTR. I run out West, but any input about how the two compare is welcome.

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.

Howdy, Alex !!

He JUST switched to AT&T for similar reasons. He should show up soon. I don't hear much good about T'Mobile; they've got a LOT of dead zones, just here in my home state. I had them YEARS ago, and signed on with AT&T afterwards, for that reason.

Best wishes; await Scott's arrival, too~

Had verizon for years. Best coverage hands down. Theyre billing is probelmatic though, so is there cut off if your not on an unlimited plan, Prepaid is the solution, switch up to the prepaid unlimited plan, its 50 to 65 bucks a month, never get your speed throttled again. Ive gamed using my phones hotspot as a router.

You can up your verizon to unlimited data. I just switched to AT&T. So far ok. T-Mobile and sprint don't have coverage when you need it.

Hope that helps.

That's the thing, I'm on an unlimited plan, but after 50gb they slow you down 'during congestion' which seems to be at random. I'll have to look at AT&T closer.

I switched Verizon from T Mobile a year and a half ago and would never switch back. I ran into many dead zones with T Mobile never have a problem with Verizon.

Infact up in Elkhart Lake WI at the race track with T Mobile I had no coverage with Verizon you wouldn't know you are in rual WI.
