Verizon Wireless Prepaid Coverage & Network

Out of the four main carriers in the U.S., Verizon Wireless has one of the largest networks, offering the most connection points in the country. Unsurprisingly, their prepaid wireless coverage is excellent and even allows roaming on partner networks, similar to the way postpaid contract phones do. The Verizon Wireless prepaid network is a solid choice in most parts of the country.

Verizon does not offer service in Alaska, except for a few select portions, but does have pretty good service in Hawaii and most of the continental U.S. Service in the western portion of the country is spotty, so be sure to check the map if you live in that area.

Similar to its counterpart, Sprint, Verizon runs on the U.S. CDMA network and phones must be compatible with CDMA bandwidths in order to be activated with Verizon Wireless Prepaid service. CDMA is not as popular globally as its GSM counterpart, but as far as actual network speeds, there is no difference. Verizon offers 4G speeds to both postpaid and prepaid phones for no additional fee.
