Any vehicle using a CCS plug has a larger network than native Tesla. Every automaker except for Nissan and Tesla have adopted the standard CCS plug for cars sold in the USA. CCS is the standard plug adopted by the Society of Automotive Engineers for the USA. Then they allowed charging companies to build out the charging network.

Per the DOE there are:

3,922 public DC fast charger locations in the USA and Canada. The breakdown by plug is:
2,750 CHAdeMO
2,605 CCS
766 Tesla
There are also 21,309 public Level 2 J1772 charger locations

Tesla does have a broader geographical reach because of Tesla's central planning to establish routes across the USA. Private companies tend to build chargers in metro areas where the majority of EV owners live.

The DOE alternative fuel map is here:
