Prepaid Straight Talk Tower Coverage Maps

Straight Talk Wireless is a small wireless provider that leases out service form the large companies, including AT&T, Verizon, Sprint and T-Mobile, in order to provide less expensive mobile service for individuals who are looking for another mobile option.

Due to this, when individuals want to use the Straight Talk service, they simply need to bring their current phone and they are able to use their current network as well.

Of course, the actual coverage map for Straight Talk is going to vary, depending on what the current service provider already offers. Due to this though, it is necessary to know what locations the major carriers provide service to and how it affects those who are considering Straight Talk Wireless.

AT&T

AT&T has a total of over 824,000 cell towers with a combined825 cellular networks. This provides a total of almost 5.2 billion signal readings and 1.2 billion Wi-Fi hot spots.

With this in mind, wireless towers provide exceptional service throughout the midwest, northeast and southeast. Once an individual moves past Texas though, the coverage becomes a bit spotty. The majority of California is under coverage, as is central Colorado and most of the western coast of Oregon and Washington. However, there is a large region, spreading from Idaho and Montana down to Nevada and Nebraska that simply do not receive that much service.

This is more because of the small populations in the area, but this is still something to keep in mind for individuals who are looking to use the AT&T service.

Verizon
Verizon has some more coverage throughout the aforementioned dead zones that AT&T doesn’t have. There is more coverage throughout the middle states in the U.S., not to mention more coverage throughout Montana and the Dakotas (although there is still a good share of open, uncovered regions).

However, one thing to consider is that Verizon does struggle when providing service to Alaska and Puerto Rico, two regions that AT&T is one of the few service providers that does facility the region.

T-Mobile
T-Mobile is the third largest service provider in the United States. There is also a massive drop off in coverage here. The majority of Montana through the Dakotas and Nebraska has no coverage, and even most of Oregon and Wyoming does not have any coverage as well.

Sprint
Sprint has a bit more total coverage than T-Mobile, although it comes in hits and misses throughout the middle area of the United States.
