I have been with AT&T for over 10 years. I have never had horrible cell service. LTE is flawless. Only a handful of dropped calls since I went from a Razr to an iPhone in 2007. Excellent customer service in the last 2-3 years. Highly recommend.

T mobile in Colorado Springs for me has been painful. Calls were always dropping and I would receive texts at a later time than sent. Their 4g lte is fast, but only when you can use it. Coverage was extremely poor inside of buildings and even outside. Would probably only recommend t mobile in densely populated cities. Customer service also wasn't that good. Would take many calls in order to resolve an issue.

Moved to T-Mobile as we heard they had the best coverage in Colorado Springs. Got here and there is zero coverage at our house. Apparently there was a tower that burned in a forest fire a little over two years ago, and hasn't been replaced. Frustrating, and in calling T-Mobile all they say is that they are aware of the problem and are working on getting coverage but cannot give a timeline as to when coverage will improve.

Service is horrible I have about 20 dropped calls a day. But then some days only 15. Think about finding another carrier if more towers are not put in this area. If its a dead zone I shouldn't have to pay $250 for a network extender.

Have AT&T for 14 years in this same home, but just in the last. 3 months I get about. 5 dropped calls each day. I just can't understand what the heck is going on. Have I -phone. 5 but told it's not the phone it's AT&T coverage is so poor. Just changed the phone twice in one month even though was told it wasn't phone had to see for myself. AT&T is the worst!

Since 4G LTE rolled out around December 2013, i'm loving T-Mobile in the Colorado Springs market! Verizon is basically a poor market area, according to them. Sprint is ok, if your outside or near the more populous parts of town. STILL waiting on LTE. ATT, I honestly dont know.

At the end of 2013 T-Mobile flipped the LTE switch for colorado springs, since then I noticed a HUGE IMPROVEMENT of DATA and call signals in and around the city! I had them before going to Verizon ( which I had no signal in and within a half mile of maizeland that could hold a call). When I spoke to T-Mobile about this they said since flipping on LTE, that signal reaches much further than the old 3g they were using and since they dont have too many customers like Verizon, I'm seeing speeds in my basement that are on par with my home wifi! I was also told that this isnt the end, they are still working on beefing up LTE to the small areas outside the city, like manitou / cripple creek / etc... they even paid my Early Termination Fees for leaving Verizon and paid me enough for my Verizon note 3 that I barely paid 300 for my new T-Mobile note 3 and insurance / Jump ( where I can trade in every 6mo) is just 10 dollars a month bringing my total monthly bill to 95 dollars for unlimited everything! I paid almost 180 a month with Verizon for 4gb of lte that didnt work half the time unless I was downtown! Tmobile in the Springs and Denver is now top notch in my opinion and blows the competitino away!

Sprint has one tower that is on the east side of Palmer Park so consequently, we have one or no bars on the west side of Palmer Park. There are many dead spots around town too. Sprint offered us a free AirRave (Femtocell that uses the Internet) and it works, but causes some problems with texting and drops calls as you leave the house and transition.

Verizon has deemed this area a "limited coverage zone" or, in other words, a "dead zone." You have the options of: purchasing a $250 network extender (ask for a $75 discount), suspend your service for up to 6 months out of 1 year in 3 month increments, or cancel your contract and get service from another carrier. If you choose to find another carrier, make sure they have coverage in this area and you are able to get out of your contract if you find out that this is really not true. Please share with others what carriers have worked in this area. Thanks for reading and good luck.

I consider my reception as poor and unreliable. I seldom have good reception at my own home and I need my phone for personal use and business. I am truly sorry that I picked Sprint as a carrier, and the main reason I did is because it seemed like a deal when I had to pick a carrier. To be fair I had a Trac Fone before I bought my Galaxy S4, and the reception was not very good then either but I paid much less for poor service.

Been told by AT&T that the coverage in my area is "good to marginal". I got a free Mircocell from AT&T and still get 4-6 dropped calls per day. Texts are more reliable, but not 100%. i've requested that they send out a technician that will get his ass out of his truck and come into my house to see the blue tape on the floor where my phone reception is best. Customer Service is very good, however. If you have poor coverage, keep calling. Request a bill adjustment, etc. It doesn't improve your coverage but it's something.. Other carriers are similar, all with no plans to add towers to help. Suggest that you discuss coverage thoroughly before signing a 2-yr contract.

Worst experience ever and even Verizon admit the coverage area has signal issue. However, they will not let me switch to another carrier. Since moving in from Hawaii, I have not been able to use my phone yet I pay over US$ 120 PM. Still fighting to get out of the contract and forget the cell phone for a while since all sucks in this area.

Texting is hit and miss. AT&T suggests installing a microcell

Near my home by Academy and Austin Bluffs, I get good reception - not full strength but good enough that calls are rarely dropped. Like all carriers, signal strength can go from strong to gone over just a few hundred feet - it's a relic of all the small little hills scattered around town. Signal strength is strong at UCCS, but calls often drop when crossing the bridge at Union on Austin Bluffs.

Very frustrating! I've been with AT&T since 1991 (started out as CellOne, went to AT&T, Cingular and then back to AT&T). I have always loved AT&Ts customer service. I have always loved AT&Ts coverage! Rarely had an issue that wasn't expected - i.e., you know their weak spots and know to be off the phone when you get there. I moved about a mile away a little over a year ago and have had trouble with the service ever since. I have a MicroCell in my home / office and changed phones as well. My iPhone 3GS was great but they blamed it so I went to the iPhone 4S. I love these phones AND it wasn't the phone. I am dropping calls two and three times while on the phone with clients, etc. even when I am not in my home by the M-Cell. The M-Cell strengthened my signal so I didn't have to go outside to get a good signal but I am still having issues here and elsewhere. Sounds like they are all this way. It has changed in the past year. Sorry! Yes, I choose to live here and I haven't had the issues I have experienced since the Waldo Canyon Fire last year. Don't know what happened, but something's changed.

Had Sprint for 10+ years now and loved it... . till about a month ago cant hardly make phone calls, and not only do we not have 4g yet but the 3g has been getting slower and slower to where its barely even useable now. I have contacted Sprint customer service by phone and made complaints on Sprint community but I just get the same old crap about my phone is the problem... . then why is it mine and everybody else I know who has Sprint said the service sucks all of the sudden... why cant they just be honest and tell us whats going on? Maybe switching soon.

4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | Cimarron Hills | Palmer Park and Peterson, Colorado Springs, CO 80915 |

Just moved to the Springs from Dallas about a year and a half ago - there AT&T often dropped calls where I lived on my iPhone 4, and I thought it was the phone. Moved up here and used my iPhone 4 about 6 months and never had a dropped call. Then decided last spring to get a Samsung Galaxy Note II - had it for 2 weeks, couldn't get service on internet or calls still with AT&T... I took it back and got an iPhone 5 and now I get calls and keep calls without dropping and the internet is flawless out and about. What I would like to know is if there are any services that are better once you get out of the city... we go out camping a lot and it seems other people with Verizon have better service farther into the mountains, etc... is that just a tower thing? Whomever happens to have a tower closest to the area but it could be any of them or none of them? Would love to hear if anyone has great service with any carrier or any particular phone especially west of here in the Buena Vista area...

I live in the center of town at the intersection of Woodman and Academy. I never have more than 3 bars, usually have 2, and right now I do not have reception at all. Lately every phone conversation I have that lasts more than 10 minutes, the call is dropped. I stopped at the T-Mobile store right down the street and also called them... they say they don't see any problems. FYI if you ever travel through Montana, North Dakota or Wyoming with T-Mobile don't plan on having reception at all!
