4G network scanner - Android


[link to this post]
 
Is there an app on Android which will tell me which LTE networks are available and what frequency they are running on?

Trying to find out how strong / if the Vodafone 4G signal is in my area.

I suggest a search on 'android app lte network info' - gives a number of results I'd look at if I wanted one

The closes your going to get is if your area has been mapped by another user as there is no real data from the networks as there coverage is just 90% true

easiest way is to get a vodafone sim
or one of its virtual networks like libara (who will send free sims or just get one from a 'corner shop')

Just make sure your get one that is good for the 4G network. Presumably the Vodafone Talkmobile Sims probably don't work.
