Service is horrible! An AT&T wants to offer a home device to boost signal at "home"... .if I work from home sure. ; / not to mention, 4G turned into E, meaning it's getting signal from another tower but it will be slow as heck. If you could, Verizon has the best coverage... at&t have waiting txt, dropped calls, and bad service.

Not a problem at all with AT&T. Unfortunately I've got GCI for a work phone and on that I only get one bar or a "no service" message on the phone in the same spots. ACS was good till they switched to GCI - now that is just as low. Stick with AT&T here.

Coverage at the house is non-existent - we have 1 bar, sometimes 2, so I don't even turn on the phone until I get to the Parks Highway. It seems fine in town, although it seems like it only rings once or twice before going to voice. Texting is slightly better - it takes a bit to go through, but it does go through. Consequently, I only have the Go Phone ($25 / 3 month) plan.

AT&T is horrible! No reception on post, poor reception in town. Fairbanks AT&T store is horrible, no iphones in stock. Went to Verizon, everything worked out! AT&T customer service very disappointing... .. AT&T is the worst.

I noticed some people say reception with AT&T is bad, but I've lived here almost two years in fairbanks and was using them before I moved to alaska and am still using them. I get great reception all over town with no problem. I do tend to have a problem in the neighborhood near farmers loop, but I imagine its due to all the trees. I have a go phone with them so I only pay 25 a month with unlimited text and there's no contract. I don't use my phone that much though. If your wondering no I don't work for them and am not getting paid to say this. Lol.

AT&T is by far the worst carrier in Fairbanks. They overcharge for all of the plans and the "unlimited" plan is the biggest joke. I have lost reception directly across the street from the store on the old steese

You can not activate a new Verizon phone in Fairbanks.When phone rings only a couple of time it goes to voice mail.

Paying for a service that now only rarely works. Dropped calls happen regularly. Trying to get assistance is like dong a root canal with a soupspoon, painful and not worth the effort. I believe Verizon or some other provider is going to get my business. If ATT were serious about their customers, they would provide some semblance of assistance. Sick and tired of paying for nothing... ... .

Worst reception ever! I get little to none, and what I get is roaming and drops the call every 2 minutes. I've been thinking about leaving T-Mobile for a while, this seals the deal!
