More places than you probably realize. SIMPLE Mobile offers service from coast to coast with no roaming or long distance charges. See our coverage map.
No. 4G LTE is incompatible with our 4G HSPA+ network, even though it is on the same 1700Mhz frequency.
We currently offer 3G coverage in most major U.S. cities, and we're continually expanding our coverage.
To access the 3G network, you'll need a SIMPLE Mobile compatible 3G phone or device. If you have a 3G compatible phone, and you are in an area with 3G coverage, you will automatically connect to the 3G network. You will notice a 3G indicator on your phone's screen.
Since SIMPLE Mobile's 3G phones operate on both the 2G and the 3G networks, you won't notice a thing. Your calls simply transfer seamlessly from network to network while you travel.
Using one of today's 3G-capable devices in an area with 3G coverage, you'll notice faster Web browsing and content downloads. Web browsing speeds using a 3G phone on the 3G network will typically range from 128 to 300 Kilobytes per second.
If you plan to access the Internet extensively on your phone, 3G is a great choice for you. 3G is best for viewing websites, uploading files, (photos, attachments, presentations) sharing websites, and downloading files from an e-mail or a website.
Our network offers moderate-speed data service, and many of the applications on our 3G phones will work well on 2G or 3G, including: E-mail, instant messaging, and texting; downloading ringtones, wallpaper, and light data files; as well as sending photographs via e-mail or picture messaging.
SIMPLE Mobile users have seen average download speeds approaching 10Mbps with peak speeds of 21Mbps.
A 4G network can be up to 10 times faster than 3G allowing you to browse the web, download songs, and stream video more quickly.
