Verify Cell Coverage!

I will admit when I get an idea from another place. And it was so obvious. Lani Rosales from Agent Genius did a blog post about a new service that will use an app on millions of people's phones to independently show you cell coverage for any home address. Brilliant.

She found a service called Open Signal that does this and wrote about it in this blog post. She challenged all large and small home search sites to see who would incorporate it first.

I was on it.

But it first required a "key" from the company.

So I did the next best thing while waiting for that key. I now made it so in one click you can verify the coverage of ATT. The address is already built into the link, just send it off. Just like you love the Verify Schools link (certain counties).

Soon this dynamic link will work for Verizon, Tmobile and Sprint. For now they are simply links that require you to re-enter the address. I couldn't do it immediately since I am about to head out on a 20 mile run, a new record for me (sorry too much info??).

So what do you think?

To those that say "if it ain't broke, don't fix it", sorry I made the site a tad better today.
