1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Fairbanks Airport, Fairbanks, AK 99701 |

Reception is terrible. Test.com says 320kbps, wow really? In a city with a first class ATT fiber to backhaul connection and a prominent university, cant work in the hotel across the airport at all - I get 26 kbps.

6 weeks there and US C's roaming partner GCI still could not get me calls from a land line or internet. After 2 weeks working with teak's I did get calls from cell phones and texts less than 150 caricatures. GCI said it was there equipment problem and they could not fix it so my Samsung Galaxy S5 and my unlimited plan with US Cellular was worthless. A year earlier I did not have any phone problems visiting Fairbanks.

I'm planning an extended visit at the end of April. Now I'm somewhat concerned about the issue of limited data. My plan allows me 10GBP per month and rolls over as well. I can't imagine that this would change but I will check into it. When I have had a chance to see if all goes well I would be happy to send you the results.

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
