We are getting ready to PCS to Fort Knox and our contract with AT&T has just ended. I need opinions on cell phone service in that area so I know if we should stick with them or choose new.

My family is BRACcing to Knox in May and from my research, if you want the Blackberry-type service Sprint seems to be the way to go.

Verizon is the way to go. Verizon in the rural areas (which is most of Ft Knox) has the most places where you can get a signal. This would be my opinion for other nearby areas too; which include E'town, Lebanon Junction/Nelson county and Meade and Breckridge counties. I travel all over the state with both an AT&T and Verizon phones (need both for my job) and Verizon seems to have greater coverage areas for Kentucky. When you're on major roads (interstate, 31W, etc), all cell companies provide decent service.

This is the comparison map for actual 3G coverage between Verizon and ATT which is much faster for data...browsing the web etc. ATT has really let their network go to the dogs in the last few years IMO.


Verizon Wireless 3G

I would go with Verizon also. Seems to have the most consistent coverage even in rural areas of KY. I had AT&T and it just seemed like the service was never strong unless I was in an urban area.

According to Verizon, there is no service in this area. Sprint and ATT are your best bets.

I have been stationed on Fort Knox for over a year now and I can easily say your options are limited, Its rare to get a full signal on any phone service but at&t seems to get the best but T-Mobile comes in very close second. Verizon by far has the worst on base due to no nearby towers which makes them resort to using towers owned by blue grass (?) which simply put if you need to make a call find a very tall building or go to E-Town.
