They've talked to family in that area and other residents in that area and nobody is running verizon cause of that.
My BF and I travel like crazy - him every week for work and his cell is AT&T and he had a verizon hotspot - this way he can bridge the gap no matter where he is. Last year we took a trip up the western coast from LA to Seattle (on the train so it was crazy remote) between the phones and the hotspot there was very little time we were NOT in a coverage area.
I put my dad on my cell plan AT&T and it only increased my bill about $20 (he has limited data and pretty low minutes) family plans do save lots of money as long as you select the right level of usage for each user.
Remember when sprint says unlimited data - once you reach a certain level you can still access it but they control the download speeds slow you down - its not everything they advertise...
