I'm really starting to hate The Mobile. I have no reception at home. I work at the entrance to Huntsville Airport, I have to go Outside to get or place calls or send of receive text. So frustrating. We travel to Atlanta a lot, we get service only made big cities. Once we're outside view of buildings, poor or weak or no service. I many times will show 4g but it not very slow throughput. Don't buy T-Mobile.

Verizon mobile broadband and cell are TERRIBLE! Lucky to get one bar. Is there only one Verizon cell tower for all of Limestone County? Why will Verizon not install more cell towers? It's almost impossible to send texts and the internet using the USB 760 with an external parabolic antenna is awful. Many times it is like using dialup. We cannot get Charter internet and refuse to use the satellite internet.

Bad coverage over the course of an hour. Over multiple tests, typically 90 kb / s down, 70 kb / s up. Vague memory that it's been better in the past, but no specifics.

Signal is slightly better in the morning and at night. It is pretty much non-existent during the day unless I stand in my laundry room. It's getting worse

We are having more trouble with dropped calls and are unable to conduct business as needed with our T-Mobile Service. Very frustrating!

One mile west of the courthouse on Washington Street, in the middle of town, the cell coverage sucks. Has for 9 years. Since the storm about 4 12,11, the coverage has dropped to about nothing.

Doesn't work in Rural areas. My work is about to switch to Verizon PTT because it works all over the state and in rural areas.

I have had Nextel for 4 years now, 1.5 years in Athens area. Absolutely GREAT signal and service. I even have bars all the way to Florence in the west, Bankhead and Sipsey Wilderness, and all the way to Chattanooga out 72 and 54. I rarely have a drop call. I'm not crazy about my phone model. It's clunky and little pieces keep coming off. Nextel customer service has been great, too. I travel to Pensacola to see my parents often and even have coverage miles off the interstate on 231 and 21. My only complaint is the weak-ass car charger for my model phone. I think they make them so the'll break in about 3 weeks and you have to buy a new one! I put duct tape around the last one I got immediately after purchase and managed to keep it going a year.
