1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Skyline Forest | Hwy. 68, Monterey, CA 93940 |

A few years ago we moved to Monterey and we tried initially AT&T and coverage by our home which it is pretty close to the Monterey Peninsula Hospital was null, nothing. So, we end up switching to Verizon which initially was OK for some time, but then the connection was spotty. We work in Salinas and there are parts on Hwy. 68 in which there is no coverage at all (Ryan Ranch). Once in Salinas, the service just dies almost completely. I have to get out of my office to either take or make a call (Callers text me to let me know they are trying to reach me). We upgraded phones to the Galaxy S7 and still, the same bad coverage. From all the other reviews, it appears ATT&T has improved their coverage, so, we will be switching soon, once we are done paying our phones. I know about the credits but we still have to cough up $500 bucks for each phone.

Data non-existent during the day and night. Couldn’t even get 3G service. At 9:00 PM had ~270 K when I was lucky. At 6 AM had much better throughout (~4-5 MB), but still not great. Pretty bad here.

Terrible service in most of Monterey. Phone reverts to 3g a lot. Data and calls not reliable. SMS seemed to work best for reliable communication.

Extremely unhappy with the lack of Verizon reception in this part of California. This is very surprising since we never had issues living in East County San Diego and Verizon is THE GO-TO cell provider for Wyoming where we live now. Even in a town of 20 we get better service than here.

Lived all over the Monterey area and have always received great reception just about everywhere.

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Casa Verde Way | Montecito Ave., Monterey, CA 93940 |

Cell phone reception is terrible. Always shows "LTE" with between 1-3 bars, and absolutely NO text or call capability. Would rather it just say, "No Service" than lie to me everywhere. Most of the time I need to leave my house and go out to the street corner to get acceptable coverage. Also, signal is non-existent near Fort Ord or Marina.

Traveled all over Monterey, Carmel and Seaside and never saw more than 1 bar on either my iPhone or Samsung Galaxy S5. Could not receive or make a call while indoors. Text messages took upwards of 5 mins to send. Internet was non-existent.

Great call / text reception. Have occasionally had internet issues, but that could have been the phone rather than the signal.

The tower is only a mile away, so very good T-Mobile reception in this area of Monterey.
