NE Colorado Springs coverage is inadequate for the growing population in this sector. There is a tower near Hwy. 83 and Roller Coaster, which is only 1.5 mile from me. However, Sprint doesn't appear to have eq. on that tower. My closest active tower is at Gleneagle, which is 4.5 miles out.

Data Service is at 2G until we reach a T-Mobile Service center than it goes up. There is not enough Towers located in the SouthEast Division, specifically Jetwing and Fountain BLVD

Had to get a MicroCell in order to make a call, keep a call. Even with that $200 expenditure, it can be "iffy". AT&T has indicated there will be a tower closer to us. First it was March of 2013 and now it's August 2013. Hopefully, that will help. Like AT&T, but if reception continues to be an issue, we'll look at another carrier for that area.

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!
