CarrierCompare is a new app from Boston startup SwayMarkets that is designed to help you pick the best wireless carrier to suit you.
This app was exactly what my girlfriend and I needed to pick the right service when we moved to San Francisco last month, said Brian Roundy, one of the apps early customers and beta testers.
The app analyses location and quality-of-service information in the US to show which carrier has the best service for a customer at their particular given location and moment in time. SwayMarkets says that this sort of information is usually controlled very tightly by phone companies, marketers, and other interested parties, but CarrierCompare makes it directly available to the customer. CNN Money explains that the app is very simple to use: simply touch the apps start screen, and it will then get to work analyzing your networks signal strength, response time and speed, before comparing the results with other nearby results for the other two national networks.
