In the Denver area it was Air Touch before Verizon. We travel extensively and I can count on one hand how many times we did not have service. Even in most mountain areas of Colorado Verizon has coverage.

Like lberjet we use Verizon for cell and MiFi. All cell phone carriers have areas with no coverage, especially in the western states. Of course it’s not limited to the west, my home state of Missouri has large areas in the south central part of the state without any cell phone coverage. If you’re planning to travel the country then I’d stick with either AT&T or Verizon.

I was working in DC at the time and with the old analog and had a tuff time trying to make a call.

We have a local company here is Wyoming called union wireless. There service is great all over in Wyoming is spots where Verizon has no service at all. And when in bigger cities can either run off of AT&T or tmobile. I have and iPhone that runs off of 2g speed and it is just about as fast as Verizon's 3G and its about $80 cheaper a month between me and the wife. We have unlimited everything for $98 a month for two iPhones.

We switched to Consumer Cellular which has tiered service/pay plans, from Verizon. We had 2 basic flip phones with verizon with no extras and it was costing us about $90/mo. We now have have smart phones with 3g service at about half the cost and twice the phone of Verizon.
Consumer Cellular is piggybacking on the AT&T backbone.

We have had Verizon forever and it seems to be the best for us. DH has an original iPad with ATT and coverage isn't nearly as good as our iPhones. We initially went with Verizon because they were the only carrier who had coverage at our rural TN farm. I have used my phone all over the country (except the Pacific NW and Alaska) and had decent coverage most places.

I've had AT&T, Verizon, Southern Link and a couple of others. They all have their pros and cons. There are some places that it doesn't matter which service you have, there's just no signal. Thankfully they're few and far between.

Right now we have Consumer Cellular and are happy with it. Their data plan is a little lean but we aren't big users of data so it works for us. As said above, it runs on AT&T's network so the coverage is good most places.
