About MountainWireless.com

This 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 created 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. 
Our other sites include:

We also provide links to all our individual affiliated pages, both within and outside this site, on the Mountain Wireless Site Map.

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.

This site is a result of these passionate contributors and their observations, made entirely as a volunteer effort. However, there are costs in running this site, and those expenses are paid by a small commission from "affiliate" links. So, if you ever buy cellular phones, service or accessories online, we would really appreciate you doing so by clicking on any of the advertising banners and links you see on our site, like the ones above, or shop at any of the links on our wireless online discount site, Moose Wireless. We sometimes get a small commission from ads displayed on these pages to help defray the cost of operating these sites. We also accept direct advertising, but our reviews are never influenced by any advertiser (although they've tried). Even if you're not buying today, we might get credit if you visit one of our advertisers later. You might want to read our privacy policy for more.

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.
