Our reception has gotten much worse over the past several weeks (starting in 11 / 2016 or so). We have one bar of service, people on the other end of the line frequently can't hear us, and calls are dropped regularly. As my partner and I both frequently work from home (like many others in the Bay Area), the deterioration in reception has become a major problem.Was this review helpful to you?
My mobile / smart phone coverage is through Sprint (unlimited $98 @ month)... I have an AT&T Wi-Fi / TV at home because I live in a dead zone... ($48 @ month)... Berkeley, Ca... go figure... this coverage drops off when I'm in my back yard... a very small property... When I am out and about my phone drops off unless I am by a business that has free Wi-Fi. I keep trying to find cheaper service... all the sales people do is shrug their shoulders and say... I have a great deal...Was this review helpful to you?

On T-Mobile near my window with zero bars. If I wave my phone around this review might get thru. Seriously atrocious. Spent 30 mins (no exaggeration) logging into my utility site to check a bill.Was this review helpful to you?
AT&T coverage in Kensington was bad a few years ago, improved, and dropped back to just about unacceptable a couple of months ago. This is ridiculous.Was this review helpful to you?
The problem with Berkeley is not the carriers, they dont want to sell poor performance. The problem with Berkley Hills is that the city and its residents have been fighting the carriers for years and do not allow any new towers. From my experience Verizon is the only carrier with any type of decent coverage.Was this review helpful to you?
Absolutely terrible inside Stern Hall - some dropped calls, bad quality when it does go through, very inconsistent signal. Seems to work fine in some areas of UC Berkeley's campus, though (downtown, on Telegraph, etc.)Was this review helpful to you?
Verizon service in downtown Berkeley is terrible. I'm often in Civic Center Park for lunch, and my 3G iPhone on Verizon usually only gets 2-3 bars, and sometimes, like today. it goes to 1x (analog? seriously?) WTF is wrong with coverage form ALL the carriers in Berkeley? Totally ridiculous!Was this review helpful to you?
Calls made from I phone is being dropped constantly. Internet signal is dropped daily. This Ashby corridor is considered the dead zone. by AT&T customer service. Tried AT&T cell tower and no result. Just as dead as ever. The only solution in this zone is land line. I often see people sitting on the curb outside of their houses to make calls with their cell phones.Was this review helpful to you?
T-Mobile has 0-2 bars, usually one. Calls dropped after 2-5 minutes. Wondering how they can sell service which they cannot actually provide. Looks like all the carriers do the same. Learned that they have one coverage map for the public, another for themselves; the latter actually indicates the lack of service in Berkeley. It helps to consider how ethical, scrupulous and upright the builders of the railroads and later the highway systems were, if only to keep the behavior of these businesses in context. Also, to keep in mind that the customer service employees are not the actual source of the consumer betrayal.Was this review helpful to you?
