Coverage can affect differently on your voice and data services. Voice services has actually good coverage in most of the countries, but not all the operators offers full coverage, mainly in remote regions, being important to check which are the operators offering the best service quality in your main locations. Regarding Data services, coverage and network congestion are the main reasons to suffer bad experience, and in this case we recommend you to use our Speed Test to compare the real and theoretical speed test. In resume analyzing coverage and performance you can measure your provider quality of service.
