AT&T

4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | Pine St., Burlington, VT 05401 |

I have an old iPhone 3GS, and was looking at other carriers just for updates. Generally speaking, I have no issues at all with the AT&T coverage. I switched from Verizon because in the New North End and Malltts Bay, it was useless. Sometimes I slip to 2 bars, but in South Burlington and by Dorset St.etc.. 4-5 bars is the normal. Lately, I've been interested in getting a dumb phone with no data plan.

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | 9th Floor, Westlake Condos, 35 Cherry | Battery St., Burlington, VT 05401 |

On west / lake side of building, very poor reception - people hear only every other word. On east / city side, reception is acceptable.

T-Mobile

4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | Chittenden County, Burlington, VT 05401 |

Excellent coverage most places. Strong signal. Live in rural Chittenden County and have to go to certain spot for signal inside house (strong outside) but get coverage where Verizon and AT&T don't get any at all. Why isn't T-Mobile here yet? They have great coverage and a VT Certificate of Public Good, but no local #s / store!

AT&T

5 Out of 5 (5 stars) | Riverside Ave. | Hildred Dr., Burlington, VT 05401 |

As far as I've seen, AT&T has solid coverage across all of Burlington and the immediate surrounding area. Never had a problem with them. Coverage seems to have been increased with the recent deployment of 3G.

Virgin Mobile

0 Out of 5 (0 stars) | Starr Farm Rd. | North Ave., Burlington, VT 05401 |

Funny thing: the phone shows 4-5 bars but has no receptions and will not make calls. Also, off Waybury Rd. / Colchester Pt. Rd.- no reception.

People here and elsewhere claim that Unicel and Nokia are good, but I get no bars in my office with Unicel and a Nokia 6085h, whereas my officemate has no problems making calls with a cheapo Jitterbug service and phone. I think a lot has to do with what tower your service connects to.

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Grey Meadow Dr. | Near North Ave, Off of Starr Farm Rd., Burlington, VT 05401 |

If I'm lucky I can get 2 bars but one is the norm and even if you start with 2 it usually drops to 1 and the call usually drops soon after.

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | North Ave. | Headed North Just Past the High School Near Rite A, Burlington, VT 05401 |

Calls tend to drop in this area. There has been a slight improvement but it shouldn't be a problem in Burlington.

I live in Massachusetts and visit family in the Burlington area once every couple of months. I thought I had absolutely no reception in the entire state of Vermont until I recently took a different way home and had reception for about a 5 mile radius near Killington. That is the only time my T-Mobile phone has ever worked in Vermont. The coverage map on T-mobile's site claims to have roaming coverage in Vermont, especially around Burlington and Montpelier, but I've never had service up there.

Cellular One

5 Out of 5 (5 stars) | Burlington, Burlington, VT 05401 |

As Unicel continues to build more towers, the GSM network is proving to outperform everyone. I got lost looking for a friend's house in the absolute middle of nowhere and never lost coverage when I needed directions, even though I was forced to call my friend on her landline because our particular location disabled her phone. I typically hate everything about cell phones and cell phone companies, but this was excellent.

Nextel

5 Out of 5 (5 stars) | University of Vermont, Burlington, VT 05405 |

Great Nextel service in Burlington, all over campus, and within the city limits. Only in Milton along Bear Trap Road. That's the ONLY place in Chittenden County that I haven't gotten service. Good service in NW Vermont. Service good to Canadian Border, except between Georgia and St Albans. Swanton and St Albans good. I-89 to Montpelier good, Vermont 15 to Stowe good, US 7 to Middlebury Good. Never less then two bars.

AT&T

3 Out of 5 (3 stars) | Main St., Burlington, VT 05405 |

The phone gets reception fairly well, but the main problem is when people call me, the call doesnt go thru to my phone 4/5 times. But I can make calls fine at anytime without any hassle. They say Cingular will have better reception by November.
