Specific Network Provider in a given location

I need to know, at a specific location, what the network provider that Neo/Aeris will be using.
At a specific install location, for example, I've been using T-Mobile but with very poor results, bad connection, poor signal strength.

I recently switched to AT&T and it's working great, but very pricey.

So, is there a way, in advance, to know which provider the Aeris would actually use at that spot?

(ie., if it's t-mobile, it's not going to work for me).

Thank you for posting to the forum.

You can use the Aeris coverage map to determine ahead of time whether or not a specific location is covered by our Neo SIM.

Please follow the link below and select the GSM Map.

The problem with this is that provider supplied maps are in many instances highly inaccurate.  To the point of being simply untrue.

For example, T-mobile shows as "best coverage" in my vicinity when the reality is that it is practically non-existent: zero bars inside any building and perhaps 1 or 2 outside if you're lucky.

I understand, but I'm placing devices in a building that has 2G coverage only through AT&T and not T-Mobile.

Is there any more specific way to determine WHO is providing the signal at a given spot?

Are you trying to understand specifically which carriers are available through Neo in a given area or are you just interested in any carrier available in a given area?

If you want to know which carriers are available at a specific location you can try the OpenSignal website as a resource
http://opensignal.com/coverage-maps/US/

You can enter a location and it will tell you which carriers are available.
The maps do not provide a good indication of indoor coverage as building penetration depends on the building structure, tower location, and frequency band used. Often an on site survey is the only way to confirm coverage is available.
Best Regards,
Steve

carriers through Neo...

bottom line, if I have a Neo SIM, I need to know  or be able to control what carrier the signal is using.  

If, in this specific situation, it rides on T-mobile, it's not going to work,  50 Feet away, outside the building T-Mobile would be fine.

Both T-Mobile and AT&T are serviced in that location, but T-Mobile doesn't have enough signal strength to make a reliable consistent connection.
