Given the size of the us and the sprawl of most suburban communities you’ll want a strong signal first. Ask some neighbors or colleagues who they are using and how their reception is in your office or neighborhood.
Great and interesting point. When I visit the Appalachian mountains in NC the only service out there is Verizon. T mobile / Fi is fairly inexistent.

Down here near Lake Norman, T-Mobile and Sprint are awful. The only options are Verizion, AT&T or associated MVNOs.

Also as I am currently self isolating for x2 weeks can I do this remotely.

Any recommendations?

Thanks
Look at Red Pocket mobile, they unlimited calls to the UK landline and mobile, they also offer Verizon, tmobile or ATT coverage. I paid about $205 for the year for unlimited calls, text and 8gb lte (slowed to 128kb after 8gb).

[QUOTE=Pulaski;12865284]Choosing the best mobile serivce in the US is a minefield at best, so I would, and indeed did, choose a mobile carrier that suited my needs and budget, then signed up with a separate international calling service, in my case onesuite.com, (Skype would be another option) which has a local connection number and then I pay about 1½¢/min to call the UK, with the added advantage that I can not only use the calling service calling from my cell phone, but I can also use it from home on my VoIP line (I have really crappy cell service at home) or from the office, my in-laws house etc.[/QUOTE
]
+ 1 for a separate international calling service. I use Keep Calling for 0.7 cents a minute. $10 provides 1,428 minutes. No issues with service or quality. All you do is call a local or 800 number and then enter your international number. On your first call you have to enter a PIN after that it remembers it if calling from the same number. Could not be easier or cheaper.

Take a look at this guy's youtube channel. This is an AT&T video, he has other videos for the other carriers. Remember Sprint is now gone and these plans/offers change all the time. Hope this helps.
