AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, and Sprint. The truth about voice coverage?

Map US coverage

Get the best coverage for your cell phone!

We understand that is hard to choose the right phone, the right plan and the right wireless carrier for you and your family these days. Because if you are like most of us, you will commit to a two year contract, and that’s a long time to be stock with something that doesn’t fit you.

So before you do that, you probably want to make sure you get the best option out there right?

For those who are just gettin a new plan, or those who are thinking about switching to a better carrier, and even those moving to a different state or city, it is probably a good idea to check whether AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile or Sprint offer the enough voice coverage necessary around your area.

Are you treating the Internet with respect?

We are Internet dependent, but do we take it for granted?

“We should use the Internet only when we need it, no more browsing for no apparent reason, no more mindlessly surfing in our laptops while watching Television”.

It hasn’t been that long since the first World Wide Web revolutionized the tech world, but now these days we are so used to have Internet access with a single click, that we never really stop to think about what the Internet means for us.

This South Park episode reminds us (in a funny way of course), how much we depend on having online access, and how sometimes we take it for granted.

Imagine if one day someone decides to turn off that main switch for Internet access? How would our lives change?
