Ranking of Worst Cell Phone Coverage States

United States Map of Cell Phone Coverage Complaints

Which State Get The Most Cell Phone Coverage Complaints? 

We analyzed the visitor traffic on Deadcellzones.com's regional State pages of visitor traffic.  The States are ranked below by the most amount of visitor traffic we receive to our individual pages.   Individuals find these pages typically by typing into search engines "cell phone coverage in Maine" for example. 

Based on various reports and surveys, here are a few states that have been mentioned as having comparatively weaker cell phone coverage:

Wyoming: Wyoming is known for its vast rural areas and rugged terrain, making it challenging for cell phone signals to reach all areas effectively.

Montana: Similar to Wyoming, Montana's expansive rural landscapes and mountainous regions can result in limited coverage, particularly in more remote areas.

Nebraska: The state's large open spaces and lower population density can lead to sparser cell tower coverage in certain areas.

West Virginia: West Virginia's mountainous terrain and heavily forested regions can pose challenges for cell phone coverage, especially in more rural parts of the state.

Alaska: Due to its vast and remote wilderness, Alaska faces unique coverage challenges. There are significant coverage gaps in many parts of the state, particularly in remote areas and along highways.

The ranking below is by the most amount of traffic on our individual State pages and dead zone complaints received on the map.  We came up with our own ranking based on the number of complaints, traffic, and activity on a page to determine which States were neglected by the carriers the most.  If we ranked by traffic along this would skew heavily the densely populated states: California, Texas, New York, Florida, etc.

If you click on the individual State pages below you can see a discussion about which carriers typically have the best and worst cell coverage in the area.  You can also view the complaints by color on the map.
