Colorado State-Wide Coverage Scores

Network Coverage Score
Verizon 6.7 / 10
AT&T 6.5 / 10
T-Mobile 6.1 / 10

Cell phone service in Colorado tends to be lackluster in comparison to service in most of the rest of the U.S. Congestion is sometimes a problem in the Denver metro area, and coverage tends to be spotty in mountainous areas. Verizon and AT&T tend to be preferable to T-Mobile for people who regularly ski or hike in the mountains. However, no carriers have great coverage throughout the Rocky Mountains.

Data Confidence

The coverage information for Colorado Springs is rated as medium-high confidence. Documentation is available elsewhere covering limitations of Coverage Critic's approach.
