Coverage Critic investigates networks’ performance and carriers’ policies then publishes easily digestible content for consumers. Coverage Critic aims to offer levels of rigor and transparency that are unmatched by other organizations that evaluate consumer products and services.


My name is Christian Smith.

Prior to starting Coverage Critic, I spent about two-and-a-half years with the charity evaluator GiveWell as a research analyst. For most of my time with GiveWell, I was the point person for GiveWell’s cost-effectiveness models.

I’m based out of Boulder, Colorado. If you’re ever in the area and would like to meet up for a coffee, beer, or bike ride, let me know.

You can follow me on Twitter or at my personal website, ChristianSmith.cc.
