You can look at 3rd party signal mapping sites, like: Sensorly.com, RootMetrics.com and CellMapper.net
Another possibility is to get a temporary prepaid line for one month and test it. What is your current carrier and phone? Is your current phone unlocked?
I don't blame you for wanting to try our service out before you officially switch over. You should check this out: Lifetime Coverage Guarantee! Let me know if you have any questions after reading it over.
Beware of the Tmobile Coverage maps!!! It's not true entirely!! Using Tmobile ONE plan, I live in a suburb east of St. Louis. We have an Iphone 6S which isn't the BEST band lines to support, but it's one tier below the best. I switched to Tmobile because of the rates on unlimited versus what I was paying on ATT which was not even unlimited data. I received help from the staff at a local Tmobile site that worked with me on a temporary phone line I tried for a few days. They swore up and down how great the Tmobile coverage was now than what I had about 5 years ago when I dropped Tmobile for the same coverage issues. I didn't have problems really and even had my kids watch videos a few times in the car just to see how it worked. For the most part, it worked fine, so I dropped ATT and went to Tmobile for all lines. Now, all I get is my wife complaining from my wife and kids. My wife works 10 miles away, gets two full bars on the phone and STILL can't get a call to go through. My kids complain they have no service, BUT the coverage map clearly paints a pink picture around the entire region being driven. Staff has been really nice and trying to give tricks like reset network settings and switch airplane mode on and off will help, but honestly, I can't understand how the staff actually can stand there and praise the service and not be frustrated.
I probably wouldn't have switched to Tmobile had they not had the no contract agreement. I brought all my own phones, so I'm not locked in with Tmobile long term. You pay for what you get, so I'm not sure the headache of my family complaining all the time, especially my wife, is worth the cheaper rates at this point. I doubt I make it a full year with them and will likely end up back with ATT at a higher monthly bill because my old plan was no longer even sold.
