A map of the world that shows where 4g areas, 3g areas and no data areas are in the world. For when you are visiting somewhere and want to know is you have data

Even in a 10 sq mile area around our house there is a complex pattern on 4g 3g and 2g data.
Not sure every country has that level of detail as it is influenced by so many factors as well as service agreements.

As roaming data outside the EU is priced to discourage any usage this would not be a sensible use of any resources.

 

Even if restricted to just the EU there are usually several possible roaming partners in any country, so keeping such a map up to date could be a problem.

There are other countries than the EU, and other networks include them in their roaming using home tariff packages.

You can find the coverage map you need by googling the country you are interested in.

Hello having been on a few networks and looking at their coverage maps that state 4g is available only to find these black spots that aren’t shown where you only get 3G or worse 

 

due to hills valleys buildings it not possible to really do what you want as networks coverage are anything but accurate all over the world ,

there is an old saying you don’t always get what you expect 

where I live move 1 mile  and you go from 4g to nothing

What a huge task that would be !! The investment in time and resource might not really be worthwhile for gg since they probably do not make much out of that activity.
