Ubiquitous coverage?

Anyone who thinks that there is ubiquitous cell coverage (never mind LTE or 5G) in the USA needs to get a little further off the Interstate.
We live on a boat - cell coverage is OK when you're in town at the marina, and not bad in those big harbors - but if you get a little further out, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. I keep thinking I should put an antenna up on top of the mast at 67', but I'm told that is no panacea either.

Back when we lived in Arizona , it wasn't hard to get away from cell signals at all - once you get away from the cities and Interstate highway. My experience in rural Maine has been similar.
