Consumers trying to understand the wireless industry often struggle to find the information they need to make informed purchasing decisions.

CoverageCritic investigates networks’ performance and carriers’ policies then publishes easily digestible content for consumers. CoverageCritic 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 CoverageCritic, 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.
