2 Out of 5 (2 stars) | Bubb Rd. | Conradia, Cupertino, CA 95014 |

Service was good for a long time. Things have changed since beginning of 2014. All our phones inside the home get a DOT / bar - outside may be 2. But the audio is scratchy and had to repeat several times. Checked with VZ support and did what they recommend me to do. Nothing has improved. Have been using Field Test (*3001#12345#*) and see that is at -111 or -114. Should normally observe -75 to -85 in this neighborhood. If I go couple blocks towards Kennedy school it improves and near De Anza College it is the best at -68. There is a VZ Cell tower and hence better signal and better data download speeds as well. Very disappointed with VZ, as their support informs that nothing has changed. Hard to believe. Both iPhone 5 and 5s show same symptoms. 4S is slightly better but still horrible data downloads. Verizon needs to seriously look in placing a Tower in the Apple's HQ City and its laughable they make phones but not promise the delivery of service. Huh... .

From 4-7pm calls do not go through. When they do, they are immediately dropped. Extremely poor reception when available. Even the ATT Micro Cell in the house is bad.

Voice drops in and out, need to hold the phone at a specific spot near the window to keep the phone call. Ironically though, if I'm outside on the balcony which is all of 20ft. from the window... it doesn't work, much less any other part of the 1st floor apt. I live in.

In October 2011, ATT indicated a new cell tower would be set up near The Forum in Cupertino where reception is terrible. In nearly 18 months the tower is not up and no reason is being given. I contacted ATT, they indicated the tower was going up in May 2013, then they hit another delay.

95% of the time, can't call out or receive call. Have to go outside of the house to make a call. Use call forwarding to the house phone to get incoming cell phone call.

AT and T recently txt me about improvement in reception from new cell tower installed. Calls received and made are clear now. Even have reception inside the house for the first time since moving here 6 years ago. Just time since we're about to switch to Verizon. Wonder if new cell tower is new touted LTE 4G.

Sig strength sucks at best, must walk around to find the strongest signal each time I want to use cell. The same story outside the house. Phones are fairly new, oldest of 4 is 1 year.

It is so pathetic reception. Sometimes I get 1or 2 bars with difficulty and all other times no reception at all. To unable to bear this, I have opted to switch to Verizon and I took my work phone connection with Verizon. But I a still stuck with AT& for my family connection. Shame on you AT&T!. I have called Customer service multiple times. In my apt complex none of the AT&T phones receive or place calls. We don't even know of missed calls until next time we are out of our house and on the road. I see this forum with lots of people complaining about the coverage with AT&T in this area. How about a petition or even suing AT&T for the losses. For example - I have been using AT&T for more than 3 years just because of iphone.

Amazing that in the heart of Silicon Valley no coverage within a mile radius... ETA of Jun 28,11 for new tower come and long gone.. ATT cusstomer service says even without new tower reception should be good... Amazing that this has been reported for years and nothing has been done abt it.. Keep saying they are almost ready with a new tower... Have heard that for a few years now! Not sure if that will make any difference. Many folks in the neighbourhood are with Verizon if they need coverage when at home. Ironic thing is that I saw an AT&T technitian struggling to connect with his office using his cell phone while working in the area :-)

There is virtually no coverage in this entire area encompassing the three major schools (Monta Vista, Kennedy, Lincoln). AT&T has a tower approved and they continually say it will be online by June 28. I have checked with them continually and they stick to that date. I didn't see the tower built yet, but they claim it's still on track!

The quality of service in cupertino is a testament to how much AT&T sucks. Cupertino is Apple's headquarters and the service still SUCKS.

Here in the heart of Silicon Valley, only miles from Apple's world headquarters, and the reception is poor at best. Right now, I have no reception at all.

I've been with Sprint for a long time, but never had problems like this until I moved to Cupertino 15 months ago.

Got my connection moved from AT&T ( which was giving 1 bar..) to VZ, Now I see *zero* bars inside the house. Outside house it goes to 1 bar. was on the call with tech for 30 min and he suggested to return the phone as coverage in this area is very bad. It won't change until 2013... So still.. shopping for better service..

T-Mobile works in my house, not in anyone else's, and it sucks at Monta Vista and basically anywhere else.
