1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Paseo Padre Pkwy. | Sequoia Rd., Fremont, CA 94536 |

I switched to AT&T because t mobile was not working at all. After 5yrs AT&T at mt location is still poor. Missed calls and late txt messages. Switched to straighttalk, no need to pay top dollar for poor 3g service.

4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | Fremont To Foster City , Fremont, CA 94538 |

Suddenly T-Mobile 4G LTE is working with 15 to 40Mbps on my route from Fremont to Foster City with few drops to Edge Speed (few kbps). I get this speed on Note 3. On my previous Note 2, it was max 2 to 4 Mbps. 4G LTE on 92 bridge is amazing. 4 stars because still sometimes, T-Mobile cannot provide continuous coverage where it worked perfectly few hours back.

Poor to no reception inside my house on both cellular and 3G with my iPhone 4s. Service seems to come and go at different times of day.

I am now counting the days to change companies. Sprint is bad everywhere in the Bay, and is TERRIBLE in Fremont. I am a physician and drop calls daily from my house or in the car- It's atrocious. Internet is worse than cell reception too, and nonexistent in the city.

I can make phone calls at home no problem but I have no Wi-Max 4G service at all. 15 miles away at work I can receive Wi-Max 4G at my desk, but nothing inside or outside at home. I have ZERO confidence that Sprint will have LTE coverage in my home area because they never had Wi-Max there. THIS IS WHY I have not upgraded my E4GT for a GS4 or Note2.

I cannot stress enough just how poor of reception I have in my area from Sprint. 4g? Forgetaboutit. 3G ? Only if I stand on tiptoe and point my phone at 45.864* north by northwest. Seriously, it is quite bad. It will switch to roaming constantly, but of course Sprint won't tell me what company it is roaming with. In fact, they let me know they would drop ME if my phone roams too much. They have no plans to upgrade towers here. My Airwave ( which I refused to pay for) they gave me does not function 90% of the time. After over 15 years with them, it's time to switch. I believe it's Verizon's towers they piggyback on, so I'm going there

If you live in Fremont CA, think about it before you SHOULD VERIZON Wireless. Iím with Verizon over 8 years plus and very happy with the 3G services until I got Samsung S3. Told them, I don't have 4G services in my area (Fremont Hub). They told me, they will add new tower. While waiting for 4G, I received some credit discount every month. One year and half later, they discontinue my discount. Tower never added. The supervisor told me, Verizon no longer discount for any customer and will NOT have 4G around my area. Unless I have to buy network extender or cancel my contract early without penalty. That's BS! I cannot believed, they treat loyal customer this way. BTW..Verizon supervisor told me. If you live near freeway 680 or 880. More chance you will get 4G signals. Anywhere in Fremont CA will automatic switches to 3G network. Good Luck.

I get pretty good coverage in this area, at home, and as I am driving around Fremont. ATT is very satisfactory for my coverage!

Sprint signal in south Fremont has been atrocious for last 2 months. What's up with that? Even simple text messages won't go through lately.I'm tired of seeing red triangles on the screen. Can I use that as a reason to get out of my family contract?

Hmmm.. Ive had perfect reception all over Fremont and from inside my wooden house.. There was a drop area on 92 bridge but thats when its changing towers I think. All in all I get perfect reception all over the bay area. Verizon is quite good except for the expensive price. Again I dont live in a concrete building so I cant speak to that

Always have 5 bars reception. Never had a problem with reception anywhere I go so far. I've been using ATT for more than four years now, and I don't remember having any problem with it so far.

Cell coverage in our ranch style home is so poor, not even 2 bars (sitting by a window). Most times we get no reception with out roaming.

Absolutely terrible. I have the wifi uplink that is supposed to make is less terrible but it goes offline whenever it pleases. Even at no charge it is a terrible value. Sprint should be sold for scrap before there is nothing left. I am a long-time business customer and will be leaving them for Verizon tonight.

Newark, CA near Dumbarton Bridge / CA-84 is a T-Mobile dead zone. There is zero coverage in this area or nearby,(Raley's, OSH, Safeway, Starbucks / CVS, Ranch-99) Cell signal is so poor in nearby areas that 10-feet indoors, you have no coverage. Strangely, only one mile away in Ardenwood, 3G data coverage is excellent.

I've been a customer since before Verizon was called GTE. I always thought Verizon had the best reception but I can no longer say that. It has such poor reception in Fremont, CA that I'm seriously considering switching carriers. Put up more towers or I'm switching!
