I just heard about this Lycamobile. Is anyone here familiar with it? What I wonder is how their signals are. I've heard that Verizon and ATT have the best signal coverage (some people using Verizon could even make calls from subway underground).

They are a T-Mobile MNVO (a re-seller of T-Mobiles network), so they'll have T-Mobiles coverage.

Which probably means excellent coverage in cities and little to no service outside of large(ish) metros.

I have T Mobile and like them, but their coverage is not terribly extensive.

I see, so if you use others such as AT&T or Verizon, you can't have that. Thanks for the info.

Still, that is an extraordinary amount of international connectivity for $19 a month.
Unlimited Nationwide Talk & Text
Unlimited* International Texts
1000 minutes to Canada, China, Singapore and 7 other countries
100 MB data only at up to 4G LTE

For many people lack of universal connectivity is not that important. You lose connectivity driving between cities. You can't talk in the cabin in the woods. You are alone in the desert. Subway rides are quiet time. I can see that many people would trade that all for the ability to communicate around the world while being mobile in an urban environment for very little money.
