AT&T GoPhone Network & Coverage Map

AT&T has not only one of the oldest but largest networks in the United States. The only other carrier that is able to compete is Verizon Wireless. However, unlike Verizon and Sprint, AT&T uses the GSM (or Global System for Mobile Communications) network, which gives them a significant advantage. The GSM network is more widely used outside of the United States than the CDMA network and is recommended for anyone traveling internationally.

Because of the sheer size and volume of AT&T's network, it shouldn't much of a surprise that their GoPhone coverage map is expansive and covers most of the United States. There are some significant patches with no services in Montana, Nebraska, Wyoming, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico and a few tiny patches in California, Washington, Idaho and Oregon. However, as far as the map goes the entire east coast, the southeast and much of the midwest should experience good coverage. Alaska does not really have much coverage with this service but Hawaii and Puerto Rico do have coverage.

AT&T GoPhone not only has one of the better prepaid coverage maps, but they also offer 4G LTE to many of their customers. This next-generation service is characterized by lightening fast browsing speeds and VoIP options and comes at no extra cost. To take advantage of the LTE service, however, you must have a compatible phone.

If you live in one of the areas listed with poor coverage, or you just want to double check your area, you can input your zip code on this page and take a look for yourself. Hint: make sure you have the "GoPhone Service" option selected! Of course, as AT&T doesn't require a contract, they are not only a solid bet but also not much of a risk if you find out they have patchy coverage in your region.
