ATT coverage is pretty poor in most all of Nebraska, they don't even cover the full length of I-80.



Red = HD voice Orange = voice Yellow stripe = 3rd party coverage

I've driven Denver to Des Moines. Service will work there. It just isn't provided by AT&T.

What do you mean by this? I'm from Iowa and have AT&T service. It works in most of the state.

Spent a month at the Winnebago Factory in Forest City and never had any AT&T reception. Also in Akron we had a very weak signal. Now I have Verizon and DW has AT&T. AT&T store in Clear Lake told me reception was sketchy in Iowa.

The coverage map is spotty around Forest City, but AT&T claims 3rd party coverage.

I also found there was no AT&T coverage in Forest City. Yes their maps show it but we were using their "Prepaid" service and found out the coverage is different. If you go to the prepaid map and zoom in on Forest City, it shows no coverage around Winnebago likely because they don't allow roaming on the Iowa Wireless carrier for prepaid. Lesson from the locals is to get Verizon.

Here's the AT&T LTE coverage map for Iowa. With few exceptions, where they is significant population, there's service.

AT&T must be using a weather map wherever you got this. Absolutely of no value without location detail.
Keep in mind I had ATT GoPhone prepaid service - not postpaid service. Check out the ATT prepaid map and you will see there is absolutely no service in the area of the Winnebago plant. I suspect the postpaid service might roam on Iowa Wireless but the prepaid definitely does not.

I had good service with my AT&T Mobley in Nebraska last summer from Wyoming to Kearney on I-80, then south into Kansas.
