Best SIM card provider for Oregan/Idaho?
« on: May 07, 2022, 06:58:11 am »
Hi, I'm starting the TAT in Florence and need to buy a pre-paid SIM for when I arrive. I've heard a few options but what may be the best data/phone providers for the first few stages? I plan on buying monthly plans, buying the best option for the region each time.

Thanks!

Generally speaking, Verizon has the best rural coverage (at least a year or two ago).  I can't say specifically about OR/ID but just check out the coverage maps on each cell service's website. 

I hope you have a great trip!

Tailwinds, John

I have had good luck with Verizon there.  I think there are other prepaid plans that use the same network.

It seems like buying a prepaid Verizon SIM card here in the UK isn’t possible as far as I can find. I’m guessing there will be vendors at PDX airport or at town/village stores?

Luckily I will have offline maps loaded on my phone anyhow.
