Best Cell Phone Plans and Carriers in US Cities

06 January 2017

Searching for the very best cell phone carriers in your city? Look no further. We’ve compiled a list of the best cell phone plans and carriers in major cities across the United States. 

Cell phone plans and coverages can vary city to city— a provider that shines in Philadelphia might lag in Phoenix. With so much disparate and sometimes conflicting information about wireless plans on the internet, it can be tough to decipher which ones suit your town the best. We’ve worked to filter through all of this data to present a clear overview of providers and plans for your city, so you have a better idea of which way to go. 

We’ve also presented some general tips and rules of thumb to keep in mind when choosing carriers. This includes information about switching providers, unlimited data plans, budgeting, and dealing with coverage challenges. Lastly, we’ve assembled a handy list of the top places to access free WiFi in each city. 

Whether you’re in the market for a new cell phone plan or not, you’re likely find some interesting tidbits in these guides. And, of course, you can always quickly compare all of the available plans out there using our industry-leading search tool.
