About Mountain Wireless and Our New Home
You may or may not have noticed that you have been directed from MountainWireless.com to MountainWireless.net. The "Net" is now our new home, but it's also where this web site first started in 2001. Why have we returned home? For 17 years we operated the .com and .net sites as two complimentary sets of web pages. Since the 2 sites operated with the same goal, we eventually decided there really was no need to operate 2 separate sites. Since our site is primarily devoted to the various cellular networks in the US, it is the "Net" version of our site that survives. You may only visit us occasionally, or maybe only once. We appreciate that you have been able to find us at our new address.
This site started in 1999 as a personal review of various cellular carriers and was called "Mountain Wireless." 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. Our primary mission is to supply wireless users with the tools to help them find the best wireless network. There are over 60 actual cellular networks in the US and we want to share details about each one so you'll know there is more than the "Top 4."
Originally, our site began as Mountain Wireless Ratings and Reviews which 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 but were ultimately expanded to include the entire United States, the Caribbean possessions as well as Mexico and Canada. The site has moved back to its original home, Mountain Wireless.net and is the next chapter in the evolution of our online wireless information web sites.
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.
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.
