Oklahoma! is a popular musical from 1943 and, yes, the song just sort of sticks.
Oklahoma boasts a bustling Metro Tech Downtown area and Business Campus. This is the kind of lifestyle cell phone carriers live for: people who need coverage super fast and super now.
Cell phones and coverage depends greatly on a number of things. There's topography (we're good here since Oklahoma is pretty wide open), buildings, weather, and tower locations.
We've developed a great coverage map for Oklahoma residents who need to know exactly which carriers will give them the best reception. Have a look now.
Coverage in Oklahoma At-a-Glance
Oklahoma is the birthplace of the very first parking meter. This is perfect since Oklahoma's coverage parks itself at 83 out of 100. Here's a full list of coverage ratings by state.
What we love
- AT&T makes Oklahoma a priority, if this coverage says anything.
- T-Mobile is staying true to their word, expanding quickly in rural areas.
What could be improved
- Verizon is technically the largest carrier out there but they fall slightly short coverage-wise
- Sprint barely shows up to the Oklahoma party, but they do show up.
AT&T has the widest network reach in Oklahoma, and takes the title for the best network in the state.
T-Mobile comes in second, and Verizon is in third. Sprint's coverage lags a bit, but customers can connect to other networks where Sprint has roaming agreements.

Coverage Maps Oklahoma
The map is telling like it is. It isn't about having the "best" coverage but the "best coverage in your area". If you travel often, you might want to compare coverage for specific addresses, too. If you compare often, you'll save more.
We break down the 3G and 4G network coverage below.
Coverage in Oklahoma (69,899 m2) by 3G/4G LTE
Oklahoma is broadly covered by both 3G and 4G LTE technology. 3G is the network that some older phones run on, and the one newer 4G LTE-capable devices fall back to when unable to reach a primary network.
Big Carriers vs. Small Carriers in Oklahoma
Did you know that there are dozens of small carriers that run on the major networks, but charge a fraction of the price for service? These companies are known as Mobile Virtual Network Operators, MVNOs for short. MVNOs purchase network service from the major providers at wholesale prices, then pass the savings on to consumers.
If you're interested in Verizon's coverage, for example, but are looking for a better deal, Straight Talk Wireless, Twigby and Red Pocket are just a few of the smaller providers you'll want to check out.
