1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Center Pkwy. | East Pkwy., Sacramento, CA 95823 |

In the kitchen we have 0 bars - in the bedroom 50' away we have1 bar - AT&T sucks! Landline for Network drops off almost daily and 2.1 Kb would be lightening fast from our usual speed - this with a $200+ router upgrade (we purchased) at AT&T's recommendation! Can't tell you exactly how many service calls from various AT&T departments we've had over the years but we're done. Obviously we are in a Black Hole! Even Best Buy could not locate a signal from anyone for our address. Switching ASAP to Comcast for network and shopping for cell carrier.

There is barely any service in the office building I work in. Sending texts can take minutes and I only get 1 bar, If I am luckly I can get two bars. Forget about trying to search for anything on the web. I have to turn off my WI Fi, since it is eating up my battery trying to find a good signal.

Most of the time I can get one bar or service with no bars but the amount of time I look at my phone and have no service is scary. I often drop calls before it's even connected. Ever since the merger with T-Mobile, MetroPCS is useless with any phone.

Poor reception at my home at 15th and T. Not acceptable considering I'm within the grid downtown. I believe there is also a bandwidth issue as there are also drops during peak usage.When my contract is up, I'm swithching back to AT&T.

How they have declined with TMobile at the helm. Had Metro for 10+ years after initial year they were great and cheap. Forced upgrade by TMobile and switching from cdma to gsm or vice versa i'm constantly lacking signal it seems like anywhere. I use the apps for uber and lyft which I had no problem before T-Mobile now I constantly get network errors and miss calls which cost me money. I have to pay $30 more a month to get data speed that I had before and it still inferior. TMobile and Metro SUCK. I've been trying to find another carrier that is dependable but even people that I ask that has Verizon say the same problems affect them and they used to be the best. Amazing how in America you can't find a decent cell phone carrier and the last affordable one jsut went like all the others. I get better signal in the Philipines.

T-Mobile

LTE speeds are great in the morning, averaging at least 12 mbps. But once it hits the afternoon, speed can drop to less than 1 mbps in some cases due to the fact that the local tower can't handle the data capacity. It surprises me that T-Mobile advertises that they increased their data capacity.

I've had MetroPCS since the day they came to Sacramento back when I switched from "Air Touch". At first they were horrible but so cheap I couldn't resist but they did get better. I had to switch to Verizon because of a home I bought that didn't get signal on metro inside (still kept metro but became secondary phone). 2 years later metro had gotten great and I moved, I was so happy I dumped Verizon and their over priced bill. Then T-Mobile bought MetroPCS. The day I went from my LG Connect 4G (CDMA) to a GSM phone because they forced me to "upgrade" was the last day I ever saw full signal and full 4G LTE in my house. Now they are horrible and I search regularly for an affordable carrier that does not utterly stink the way they do. I rock 1 bar regularly and 99% of web searches result in page can not be displayed (because I have no internet connection). I've tried upgrading and getting their best phones as well as buying high end unlocked phones and T-Mobile phones. Metro PCS today is less reliable than it was 10+ years ago. T-Mobile ruined them and even when I go into the T-Mobile store they tell me I should switch to them because they only give Metro "limited access" and claim they make the service bad intentionally. I don't want to do business with a company like that so T-Mobile is off my list of companies I will switch to.

Sprint

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Near I80 | Madison and College Oak, Sacramento, CA 95842 |

I almost selected "No Reception," because my phone no longer gets bars inside my home (95841)-I am totally dependent on WiFi. I usually use my phone near a window facing College Oak Drive. Outside on College Oak Drive, I get 2 to 3 bars. I do not live in a bunker, but since Sprint officially took over Virgin (I know Sprint was the carrier for Virgin), its service started going downhill. At my office in East Sacramento, I get 0-1 bars on my phone. I have to travel to San Francisco to get good coverage. I like my phone, originally purchased from Virgin, but am frustrated with the downhill turn Sprint service has taken in Sacramento.
