Overall AT&T is great nationwide. Overall coverage in Colorado springs is TOO HARD to give an accurate answer. Why? Because you might get full service in one spot and then zero in another. Every single carrier is like that. Every location is going to get different reception. If you are in Colorado springs and get any of the major carriers - AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, T-mobile, etc, you will get good service in general. Just some will have dead spots where you need them the most (like work or home) so you'll think that carrier sucks and assume the carrier that has reception in those two places - your home and work - you'll assume that carrier is great. Not really the case. Because they might get reception if you happen to move and now at your new house it's the opposite. It's all about location... but anyways if AT&T ever where to read this, keep adding more towers! If AT&T does they will have no problem beating Verizon.

Verizon is not the nations most reliable network by any means - and it surely is not in Colorado springs area either. I would get no service at my work (in the north part of town, briargate area). My friend who also had Verizon would get no service at his house. I also would not get service when at my friends apt. Now of course it varies by location but I only had Verizon for 2 months and there was 3 locations I went too often and never got service in any of those 3 locations. Pretty bad. My friends who had Verizon had the same problem so wasn't phone related. Overall in this city though Verizon really isn't bad. It's average - Verizon is not the best carrier. It's just a marketing thing. People think that Verizon will have service almost anywhere because of Verizon claiming to be the biggest - yet Verizon gets no service anywhere in the mountains.. Yet even small carriers like Cricket will have service in areas Verizon does not. Overall for the entire city of Colorado springs Verizon gets an overall score of a B. Although since it doesn't work in the areas I needed to use it I am giving it a bad rating. Location, location, location... .

I am disappointed in Verizon's cell phone reception in Colorad Springs. Wish I had done more research on this and I probably would have picked another carrier. Verizon advertises they have the largest coverage in the State but their reception is poor. Unless Verizon improves when my contract is up I will select a carrier other than Verizon.

Cannot even get average reception outside of the house. It will still drop calls outside. This is with Verizon and Sprint.

I live in the Broadmoor area and have suffered through very poor reception. We live at the base of Cheyenne Mountain and have been told that the mountain blocks the signal from the tower. I went to my local AT&T store on Cheyenne Mountain Blvd. near Target and picked up a Micro Cell Tower that boosts the signal through my internet connection. This has changed the reception dramatically; now have full bars consistently. As soon as I leave my house the signal is lost until I get to Hwy. 115. AT&T needs to get a new tower in our area; under the shadow of the mountain.

At&t's coverage in the northwest side of Colorado Springs is terrible. At my home in the Rockrimmon neighborhood I have ZERO BARS!

My Verizon land line service could not be worse. Many calls I cannot understand the person I am speaking with and many times they cannot understand me. It is so disappointing and I would like to go back to Century Link but I cannot afford to pay to terminate my contract with Verizon. PLEASE HELP! My cell phone works FINE!

I see a lot of conflicting information on these posts. I work from home and have no land line... therefore I rely on my cell phone 100% of the time. I've been a customer of AT&T for years, and didn't have issues with dropped calls until this last year. AT&T has really disappointed me as each call I make drops within 3-5 minutes. it's NEVER their fault, and always an excuse. I hate the thought of having to get a land line again (telemarketing) but may have to. Work requires an iPhone... however selecting a RELIABLE carrier is driving me nuts..since i'll just have to deal with a different carriers "issues / excuses" until that contract is up... such a racket!

I've sold phones for 8 years now, Having all of the major carriers. Since I started with T-Mobile I've been very impressed, By far the best in Colorado Springs area. T-Mobile ranked number 1 for a reason in Colorado springs.

Until today I could count on one (1) steady bar for reception. Calls drop consistently no matter where in the house I am, even upstairs. As of today, no bars, no service. I'm awaiting VZW's response to my complaint. My prior carrier was T-Mobile and I didn't have any reception issues such as the one I'm going through now.

In Springs Ranch area I see my signal go between 2 and 5 bars, but never enough to drop a call. Service is not as bad as people make it out to be. Unfortunately, they are a little behind getting 4G LTE to the Coloraado Springs area. Looking forward to the upgrade in data speeds.

Worst experience with a cell phone ever. I get, literally, no bars anywhere in my apartment. I can't send text messages and most of the calls I try to make or receive drop. I recently moved from Denver and didn't have any problems there. I don't always get data either, even downtown which is ridiculous. I have tried calling Tmobile's incredibly inept customer service (when I'm able to make calls, which isn't very often) and they always tell me they have no idea what's going on. TMoblie says I should be able to make calls outside, or in my car, but that's a load of bull and it doesn't work anyway. Even if I could make calls on the patio, or in my car, I shouldn't have to. I don't pay what I am paying every month to have to go outside each time I need to make a phone call. I went to the store and they switched my phone for a brand new one, same problems. I am at my wits end. Buyer beware: TMOBILE SUCKS

AT&T has been telling me I live in a "hole" and Colorado Springs has overall poor AT&T coverage. THen why are they saleing the product to locals? I can be in my apartment and the signal goes from nothing to all my bars to nothing... without moving! Currently I have 1 bar; if I hae to call 911 I'm screwed. If you lie in the area, you should avoid AT&T at all costs. They will also cancel your service if you use too many "off network" minutes, even after telling them I travel for a living. My family has alrady changed to Verizon, it's just a matter of time before I do.

I know this industry, so I will not waste my time complaining about dead or weak spots in town. Sprint has always had better coverage than anyone but Verizon. Period. The issue is not having 4G yet. Colorado Springs has been left off of the 4G map for far too long now..And if we don't get it this year, Verizon here I come..

For the last two months have have had signal strength at home of 0-Full, depending on the minute. Logged several calls with Customer support... worthless. Finally call Executive Customer support... almost worthless. Different excuse every day. I finally received $264 in credits, which I used to cancel my service (8 year customer). Moved to T-Mobile and love the price speed and service.

Less dropped calls than my previous carrier, Verizon. 4G interenet is great throughout most of the springs.

We've been having same problem as has been posted here. Sprint is up one minute and down the next in our area. I work downtown and have no problem there and no problem after I leave my neighborhood, but in my house the signal will be 3-4 bars one minute and then no service or Extended with 1 bar. This has been going on for a few weeks now.

When we got our Sprint service in Oct 2011 it was fine, 4-5 bars in the house at all times. Then in February 2012 things changed radically. We started dropping cars routinely (6-8 per day) and at times we would have No Service on half to one bar of signal. I called Sprint and went through hours of annoying service updating on my phone and resetting everything on my iPhone. I finally convinced the techs that since I had four iPhones all on Sprint all doing the same thing, that it wasn't our phones. They escalated me to an engineer who said that they were servicing the cell in our neighborhood and that it should be back to normal within 36 hours. That was five weeks ago and nothing has changed. I have been calling Sprint service routinely to complain every few days and have become quite adept at getting them to admit it is their fault each time telling me that they show that the cell in our neighborhood is down or being serviced. I have asked to be credited and they are "investigating" whether they can offer us credit for not providing us any service. We had been with T-Mobile for over ten years and had wonderful cell service and wonderful customer service. If we ever had even the slightest outage that we didn't even complain about, T-Mobile would proactively issue a bill credit for the outage. Sprint is acting like they could care less.
