Which is the best cell phone network in Minneapolis? Which cell phone network has the best service in Minneapolis? Which cell phone network has the best coverage of Minneapolis and the Twin Cities?

Here's how to find out which cell phone network is the best in Minneapolis and St. Paul.

There are four cell phone providers in Minneapolis. Here are the links to their coverage maps.

  • AT&T coverage map
  • Sprint (and Virgin Mobile, who use Sprint's network) coverage map
  • T-Mobile coverage map
  • Verizon coverage map

All the networks cover the whole of Minneapolis and St. Paul, except Sprint which has a few patchy spots in St. Paul south of the Mississippi.

As far as covering the greater Twin Cities metro area, according to the networks, Verizon, T-Mobile, and AT&T have the Twin Cities comprehensively covered. And again, Sprint covers most of the metro but with significant patches - although Sprint does have new cellphone towers planned to fill in the spaces.

Which cell phone network has the best service in Minneapolis and the Twin Cities? Anecdotal evidence suggests that Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile provide similar levels of service in the Twin Cities, with Sprint being adequate, but lagging somewhat behind the other three.
