T-Mobile users should get better cell service at Red Rocks Amphitheatre as the carrier upgrades its network.

AT&T and Verizon already use a special system — known as a distributed antennae system — to serve the venue, according to city staff. T-Mobile is now able to use that existing system, thanks to a new contract with the city.

The carrier will pay the city about $4,300 per month for the privilege, and that fee will increase by 4 percent per year. The agreement begins on Aug. 1 and runs until 2026, although T-Mobile may not immediately have its equipment ready.

The Denver City Council approved the new arrangement last week. AT&T and Verizon have similar contracts with the city.

T-Mobile representatives didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
