We use verizon. We travel all over the country, and are in the trailer throughout the year. Not "full-timers" but we are generally out 3 weeks a month year around. We work from our trailer as consultants and do depend upon our cell phones as our office phones and have cellular internet. We have good serve most places. Michigan seems to be a challenge. We run 2 4G smartphones and a cell modem router.

We have just ordered, but not installed yet, a cellular booster system. It has an exterior antenna, amplifier, and indoor antenna. Hopefully we will get that going this week, and let you know.

Verizon here as well. Has the best coverage in the US but may not be the cheapest.

Hello All. Thanks for the input. Verizon isrecommended on other forums as well. Looks like the obvious choice. Hunter what are your two cents on the Sprint network, odd man out doe not mean you arenecessarilywrong. Thanks again

In the wireless communications business for over 40 years has convinced me to comment on this post. There are ONLY two true Cell Phone companies; Verizon and US Cellular. All others are PCS phones. What's the difference? Cell Phones operate in the 800 to 900 mHz band while PCS phones operate in 1200 to 1400 mhz bands. When you double the frequency (mhz) you get 1/4 the range. So, PCS phones have 1/2 to 1/4 the range of Cell Phones and are generally referred to, in our industry, as "Highway Phones" since that is their first attempt at coverage where most cars are. So, if you have a choice, stick with a Cell Phone and stay away from PCS phones. The phone companies won't tell you this and most of us think a cell phone is a cell phone. Also, pine needles absorb PCS phone radio waves a lot more than Cell Phone frequencies so, watch where you travel; forested areas are murder on PCS phones.
