NetMonster is an network monitoring app which shows information about mobile networks.
It delivers all the data that your smartphone provides. And even it’s AD free!
Thanks to cell hunters who live all over the world you can download list of cells with their location and use it.
You just got lost? Here’s NetMonster! This feature is available only is some countries where lists exist.
And here’s what NetMonster can show you:
2G – CID, LAC, RXL, TA, BSIC, ARFCN, Band + neighbouring cells (CID, LAC, BSIC, RXL, ARFCN)
3G – CI, RNC, CID, LAC, PSC, RSCP, UARFCN, Band + neighbouring cells (PSC, RSCP, UARFCN)
4G – CI, eNB, CID, TAC, PCI, RSSI, RSRP, RSRQ, SNR, CQI, TA, EARFCN, Band + neighbouring cells (PCI, RSRP, RSRQ, SNR)
CDMA – BID, SID, NID, LAT, LON, RSSI, EC/IO, SNR
Every phone reports different cell details. If any of those items is not showing on your device, it means that manufacturer has not implemented it properly.
If you have Android 4.3 (or newer) Netmonster can show you data about cell you are currently logged on while you are in area where your network provider doesn’t have a coverage. Monitoring also works if you don’t have a SIM card in your phone.

NetMonster user reviews :
Indeed this this app is very good: it shows information on neighbor carriers and the aggregated carriers, which I have not found in any other similar app I tried. Thank you! The UI is pretty simple but works. It would be GREAT if it would also show the CQI for each used carrier. Also it would be helpful if it would also show the LTE/NR band numbers (such as: 5, or n5), currently it shows the frequency band, like AWS for LTE band 4, or 700 for LTE Band 13.
It’s good, but the problem is that it hangs sometimes in towns and cities only, then think how will it be in a barren village area where the network must be captured from far 80 to 90 km away places and let the app upgrade the G itself whenever a new generation launches in the world ( for example – now till 5g of data’s is power is running, but as soon as new generation launch in the world let pop up in a new update)
Ok but no selection for USA, not sure why, but no database to download so its all on you as you drive it will pick up the towers as per developer, well no ADs, and it did work as per dev, not bad but along way still to go on that information highway.
Awesome work to know surrounding cells One thing would like to know In map, I was able to see cells with LON/LAT filled, but I can’t fetch any cell position now. Any hints?
Finish button in Settings does not kill the app – app continues to run in background. Same for Close button in Notification. Even if I kill the app (and Monitoring is disabled) , app continues to run and notify about the cells
The best tool I’ve used to date. The design of this app feels wonderful, and it almost feels like it was designed with the device in mind, along with keeping it simple, organized and data focused. The only piece that I notice is missing from a previous tool app I used, is the direction of tower antennas. Ex: Two antennas facing northwest and northeast respectively, and a third facing south. Not really necessary for my use case, but would definitely be interesting to see it be implemented.
Works very well ..especially when in a fringe area trying to get a cell signal fyi.
Hey Michal, thanks for making this app. Your app among many others is the only one that shows very accurate network informatiom including LTE. I can donate to support your development effort in whatever small way I can. Keep up the good work. Please do not bombard with ads. Its very annoying. Thanks once again.
Good to know where my tower is at per any given location. Easy to use interface.
Fantastic app. Recommend a help section to explain all abbreviations etc for newbies.
I have tried every app on here. Im miles away from AT&T tower. Im keeping a signal Thanks for this app!!
More infos than expected and no ads. Allows access to device info on Galaxy S5 Neo. Loads operator cell database for offlime use. Thanks to developer!
It shows my exact location with the tower.Thanks!
The most informative app for viewing LTE network information. And it’s free!
