Hi again folks,

I do a LOT of hiking, mostly solo, up and down the AT (check out my interactive 'journal' here: www.gdbdp.com/at). My wife worries a bit, so I like to call and check in from the trail so she knows I haven't been carried off by wild raccoons. We've got AT&T, but were thinking of changing carriers.

Anybody know which carrier has the best coverage along the AT? I know there're plenty of stretches where theres nothing, been through many of them, but I'm curious if any carrier happens to do better than another along the trail.

I have read a lot on this as will be getting a US phone when I arrive next year.
One answer - Verizon.

Verizon has better coverage than AT&T on the trail for sure.
