site started in 1999 as a personal review of various cellular carriers.
Over the years we added lots of additional useful information. In 2008
the number of pages became difficult to manage so we split the site
into several categories and moved pages relating to those categories to
different web sites. Now, MountainWireless.com features Cellular
Reviews, Ratings and other cellular opinion. This site is the flagship
of the Mountain
Wireless Network comprised of a dozen sites
from the original Mountain Wireless material. The other sites are run
either by us or other individuals, who have expanded those sites to
include even more category-specific information.
Originally, the Mountain Wireless site started as a list on a legal pad of cellular carriers and plans, and the pros and cons of each. Finding little or no comparable information for choosing a wireless carrier online, we placed our findings on a web site in 1999, which officially became known as Mountain Wireless. Initial comparisons were for the Rocky Mountain region and ultimately the entire United States, the Caribbean possessions as well as Mexico and Canada.
We roam across many parts of the planet using cellular service, and we have added contributions from dozens of other like-minded cellular users. To them we are grateful but privacy concerns keep us from extolling our praise for them by name. Many users have given us mile-by-mile experiences along various highways, allowing us to report where service is good or bad with individual carriers.
Yes, we are located in the Rocky Mountains, where wireless service receives both the benefit and the challenge of an area with such extreme topography. We can be close to a cell site and not be able to access it, or we can connect to a wireless tower many miles away. It just depends. It has taught us to appreciate finding a cell signal in the most remote of places as well as the joy of hundreds of miles of rock-solid coverage along the treeless expanse of the Great Plains.
We admit to being opinionated, but we also want to be accurate. We will correct any errors as soon as possible. Because this is a cooperative effort, we make no warranties to the information, which can change at any time without our notice. But accuracy is our desired goal.
