Two hotels and an apartment alvin October 8, 2017 - 10:07am

On this day a few years ago, when I first moved to Colorado, I was living in two hotels and an apartment, a by-product of moving here from Alaska, with all of my belongings in my car. (Little did I know it, but I would move again a month later.)

Bad cellular reception in Colorado (Boulder, Broomfield, Louisville)

My old cellphone (an iPhone 5s) just died, so I’ve been looking at cellphones, and also cellular carriers. Skipping the cellphone part of the story, cellular reception in Colorado is notoriously bad. I can barely make a phone call with AT&T in my apartment in Broomfield, CO, and I also have problems when I travel in Louisville and Boulder.

Today I finally found a good map to show the problem at OpenSignal.com. This first image shows their coverage map for AT&T in my area:

Some people in Colorado crack me up. A recent conversation:

Other: You should try marijuana.
