Dead Zones Mobile App

AT&T - Verizon - T-Mobile - Sprint - Tracfone


A Consumer Generated Coverage Map" of outdoor and indoor cell phone reception problem locations for AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile, MetroPCS, Tracfone and regional carriers.

The map is dedicated to identifying buildings, homes, parks, resorts, stadiums, hospitals and public places where cellular phone calls are frequently dropped, network congestion is experienced or where a cell phone signal is not available. 

Our mission is to be the map for millions of wireless consumers by making dead zones, dropped calls, network congestion areas more transparent.

The map database was founded in 2001 and
has become a crowdsourcing platform for sharing notorious problem reception locations. 

Our users report coverage problems efficiently to wireless carriers and mobile retailers for review. 
Our map database of over 100,000+ cell phone complaints, dropped calls and data congestion areas contributed by actual customers. 

Please review our presentation slides.

Why Map Was Created?

Our research has determined that cell phone consumers are frustrated when they consistently experience areas with poor cellular coverage in their home, office or car.

We estimate the 50% of US homes do no have seamless wireless coverage throughout them and may require in-building solutions to fix the problem. 

Studies claim that almost 50% of customer service complaints are related to poor service complaints, yet carriers fail to provide customers with easy ways to share their local problems. 

Cellular networks have grown significantly and so have 3G, 4G and 5G speeds but coverage actually has become worse as a result. 

Carriers provide their own theoretical coverage maps that drill down to street levels of how well their service works in theory based on spectrum licenses. However, carriers can project what ever they want without any FCC regulation or governing body to monitor for false advertising claims.
