Kentucky & Tennessee Cellular Network Reviews

Observations about cellular carriers in Kentucky & Tennessee. This information is gathered from online research, personal experience, and from reports by contributors in the field.


KENTUCKY:
AT&T has the best coverage in Kentucky. Verizon Wireless only serves half of the state. T-Mobile, with their new 4G LTE "Extended" coverage, offers excellent service across most of KentuckySprint has adequate coverage in populated areas and along major highways. The eastern part of Kentucky is particularly challenging with only Appalachian Wireless serving the southeast part of the state. Central Kentucky is well-served, especially for coverage, by Bluegrass CellularTracFone and StraightTalk prepaids work in some of those areas with the ability to choose whichever carrier is available. There are a few small carriers that get good marks for serving their home area quite well.

TENNESSEE

AT&T and  Verizon Wireless are about tied for coverage in Tennessee. US Cellular, one of our highest-rated carriers, serves most of eastern Tennessee, and if that includes your neighborhood, give them serious consideration.  T-Mobile, with their new 4G LTE "Extended" coverage, offers excellent service across a small part of rural Tennessee. Sprint has adequate coverage in populated areas and along major highways but not rural Tennesse. If you live close to Memphis and most of your travel is south into Mississippi, we heartily recommend that state's best carrier, C Spire Wireless which also serves much of western Tennessee. A little farther to the east, MobileNation serves a small part of rural Tennessee between Memphis and Nashville. TracFone and StraightTalk work in most areas, with the ability to choose whichever carrier is available. There are a few small carriers that get good marks for serving their home area quite well. Coverage in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is quite variable. Public records indicate good service near the entrances to the park but signals within the park are unreliable.
