The table below shows the proportion of Mountain View with coverage from different cellular technologies.
Network4G Coverage5G Coverage
AT&T100%100%
T-Mobile100%100%
Verizon100%99%
Dish0%95%
Don't be alarmed by Dish's lack of 4G coverage in Mountain View. Dish has a newly-built network that's 5G-only.

US Cellular And Dish Roaming Coverage

US Cellular does not have native coverage in Mountain View. However, some US Cellular subscribers may still have coverage in Mountain View thanks to roaming agreements.

The 95% figure for Dish may understate what subscribers in Mountain View experience after accounting for roaming agreements.

Mountain View Cell Signal Strength

There are 286 map hexes within the census-defined boundaries of Mountain View. The table below shows the proportion of hexes at various levels of signal strength. Where both 4G and 5G coverage is available, data is drawn from whichever technology offers a stronger signal.

For most purposes, decent signals are perfectly sufficient. Weak or non-existent signals cause far greater degradation in user experience.
