With the nation’s skies teeming with low-flying satellites and balloons, many Americans rely on their city-based providers for power, internet, cellphone service and other services.
But in a report released Thursday, Spectrum analyzer found that some of the country’s biggest city-area providers were among the worst when it came to coverage, with just over half of the states reporting a coverage problem.
In fact, Spectrum found that the nation had just one provider for almost all of the nation and that of the top 20, just one had coverage of the majority of U,S.
That includes a total of seven U..
S.-based providers in 13 states, including Comcast, AT&T, Verizon, CenturyLink, Time Warner Cable, Comcast, DirecTV, and Time Warner.
Spectrum’s findings come as the U.K. and France have introduced legislation that would require all companies providing wireless service to obtain coverage for their customers.
Spectrum says the U-K.
government’s move would be the first to require the entire U.N. system to have coverage of all the nation.
“The U.T.O. [United Nations Telecommunications Organization] does not have enough coverage of its network to support all the users in the world, and the U,N.
is not a viable option for the majority,” Spectrum wrote in a press release.
“It is incumbent on all of these companies to improve their coverage, and there is no doubt that they will do so in the coming months.”
The U.W. is one of Spectrum’s top 10 providers, with its coverage of over 70% of the U.,S.
and Canada, and more than half of its markets in both states.
The other three are Verizon, AT & T, Centurylink, and Cox.
AT&s T-Mobile U-verse, meanwhile, is the countrys fourth largest wireless provider, with over 50% of its customers in all 50 states.
Spectrum said it will soon begin to track the coverage gaps of each of the four major carriers. “
These gaps are a major source of frustration for our customers and the public, who are often left wondering whether they are receiving adequate coverage in their areas.”
Spectrum said it will soon begin to track the coverage gaps of each of the four major carriers.
While it says it will continue to update its rankings as new coverage gaps are discovered, it did not say how many cities it has identified in each of its states.
