1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Bowdoin | College, Palo Alto, CA 94306 |

This past week (end of September), coinciding with beginning of the school year, service went from bad (one bar, delayed notice of calls) to "no service vodafone NL". First time it has been this awful. Reading other comments, it looks like changing phones or carriers will do no good. And this is in the heart of "Silicon Valley". It is a joke.

Lots of dead spots on Greer, drivers routinely pull over to the side of the road hoping not to lose the signal.

we have a problem with a dead spot in our house. Had to buy something called a booster to boost the signal. My husband uses his phone as a hot spot in order to get internet, but even then it doesn't work very well. Any suggestions?

Almost never had more than 1-2 bars at my place near Arastradero Rd.and El Camino. I went to them a changed the SIM card and still didn't make a difference. Never finished a phone call at my place without it getting dropped. I didn't even have full reception at AT&T store in Page Mill and El Camino. I ended up returning my phone and plan within the first month and switched to T-Mobile.

We got the microcell at home but even with it, calls tend to drop and signal fluctuates. Once we leave the house, the signal drops to 1 to 2 bars and remains that way throughout most of Palo Alto.

I work at Stanford and my reception with Verizon wireless is virtually non existant. Also when driving home I get no service on Alpine road and on interstate 280 / Palo Alto area. I have a use a brand new Galaxy S3. families at the hospital with Verizon service are also always complaining about how they cannot find a signal here.

I have had ATT for years and continue to hope that coverage would improve. I am giving up and switching networks.
