1. Re: similan island mobile coverage.


I've boated around that area twice before... Overall I'd call the coverage "acceptable to spotty"... but what I noticed was that it really was dependent on where I was, in that in one place the signal was quite good and not far away, it was substantially less...

Naturally the proximity to land and topography, line-of-sight issues, to the transmission tower plays a big part of that. I found that when we were close(r) to shore, I could get a signal to some degree... but as we moved farther off, so did my coverage... and I was expecting that..

I am not aware of any publicly available coverage maps from any of the three major carriers, that drill down to that level of detail to show what I think you need... but I'm sure if you inquired with one of their local shops, you could get a better answer or see if they have formal or even informally made coverage maps that do show approximate coverage.
