Cell service is awesome in downtown Wasilla, Palmer, talkeetna, and anchorage for my Nokia Lumia 820, but in the outskirts and "in between areas" I get little to no service, I am usually at my home which is near the little sue river a little north of Wasilla and the service is complete crap, on mta it was the same problem but I can still at some times send and receive texts, however I will sometimes have trouble sending and I might get texts hours later than when they were sent. I can sometimes make calls, my phone will make the attempt but usually drop the call which is really annoying. Luckily I live at the top of one of the big hills of land that run from the baldy mountain area out to the cook inlet which grants me the little service I get but when I visit my friend who lives pretty much right on the river at the bottom of one of these hills, I get absolutely no service at all.Was this review helpful to you?

Not that bad in main wasilla, but if you go up wasilla fishhook you'll loose service. No data in wasilla either but who cares I'd rather see the beautiful mountains.Was this review helpful to you?

Very little reception. Cannot use very often. Takes 2-3 days for messages to get to voice mail. Cannot upload pictures or video. Very bad service in all of Ak. Good service in lower 48. Bad, rude customer service also.Was this review helpful to you?

Brought Verizon with me when I moved here in 2006 and never bothered to switch to a local carrier. Initially I had a very weak signal at my home which is down in a kind of bowl below KGB Rd but last year someone put up a new tower above us and since then the signal has been very good. Usually no problems in Valley-Anchorage area. Have had large areas of no signal on the Richardson Hwy. going to Fairbanks but the Parks Hwy. is okay. We go to Kenai Peninsula all the time, signal can be kind of spotty south of Soldotna.Was this review helpful to you?

Verizon's coverage map shows digital reception in the Anchorage, Wasilla, Fairbanks and Tok area, with reception on the road system in between. I get great reception in town but it gets spotty once I leave the paved road system. Verizon even gets perfect reception in Talkeetna. Overall I'm very impressed with Verizon's coverage. I just hope they continue to be willing to utilize other carriers towers in this state so I don't have to switch carriers.Was this review helpful to you?

We don't actually have CellOne service, but GCI. GCI uses CellOne's antennas that used to be AT&Ts. We have great service with his Blackberry here but didn't used to with his old Nokia phone. It was amazing the difference. I am hoping to get one with GCI so I can actually use my cell phone at my house. Now I have a Motorola phone with MTA wireless which also has very good coverage compared to AK Digetel which I had for a grueling year before that. MTA travels on their towers and also ACS wireless where they just installed at the end of our road. MTA is pretty great, but I just want a phone that works very well here, (I want to cancel one of our home's land lines) so I'll probably switch to the Blackberry only because of that.Was this review helpful to you?

Sometimes works then drops the call and says no coverage. Network often busy. Works pretty well in Anchorage and the middle of downtown Wasilla. Friends have Verizon and ACS - Vorizon works great! ACS has ok reception but lousy customer service.Was this review helpful to you?

recection is HORRIBLE. okay, once you connect there can be full signal strengh and the call will be disconnected. sometime call will go through other times will go stright to voice mail without a ring or a voicemail indicator after message is left. the only reason i'm still with cellular one is because I travel A LOT and need a service that offers a national plan as of yet ACS,MTA and GCI do not offer that. tempted to go to lower 48 and purchase a phone and plan thru sprint,cingualr or anybody that can get better service and connection. oh yeah, you can never tell where the "dead zones" are because when you think you are in a dead spot, the service actually works and when you're not in a dead spot there is no service. good for you if your phone works and you have good service through Cellular One. i've had cellphones since 1991 and this is the WORST! maybe there are just too many out there now and the cell towers are overloaded...Was this review helpful to you?
