I have never had good Verizon coverage at my house, next to nothing. I have to go outside my house to talk to anyone, and so do several of my neighbors. We're all outside talking on our cell phones.

We switched to ATT a few months ago because my husband had had good experience. Now our cell service in our house is terrible. Sometimes it improves outside but we must be far away from our area for it to work better. I used to have a similar issue with T-Mobile but it was only in our house. and we adapted. ATT is ridiculous when it comes to customer service. We are going to check out Verizon or return to TMobile which at least has a better system for traveling.

Cell phone service for ATT is horrible in this area. I do not know why since it is in the city of San Diego

Service has improved lately. I work on base (NBSD) and service has always been spotty. Over the past several weeks I’ve noticed my speeds improving and my phone holding a signal where it used to drop. I’m guessing the improvement may have something to do with T-Mobile’s recent acquisition of Sprint. Service has always been fine elsewhere in SD. Happy customer here.

I have very limited service. If I want to stream- I loose my signal more often then not. Is a mobile boost worth it in my area? I have been told by neighbors it is due to SDPD antennas in this area.

Only carrier that works in my house. Verizon doesn't ring, Spring searches for service. AT&T only worked connected to WiFi. Have had TMobile for 4 years now, and have been 95% satisfied. Some touch and go areas while driving across country. But have roamed to Cellular One and AT&T towers without any issues. Great coverage in Mexico(Puerto Vallarta).

Reception is piss poor. It's funny how T-Mobile says it supports the troops yet couldn't improve their reception here on base in North Island. I get signal enough to sent out and receive messages. Same with calls. But to open apps like GroupMe, Youtube, or simply my iPhone map app, it looks like it's loading but it's all false hope. Don't even start with me on Facebook and Instagram, you won't get anything. Considering we are in a base in a major city in California (we are in San Diego), I don't understand why T-Mobile has very poor reception here.

Both T Mobile and Sprint give me terrible reception on Felton St. I had Sprint Via Boost and Now T Mobile via metro. I just switched because the reception on Boost was so bad but Metro is even worse. Both carriers provide excellent reception everywhere I go except for my new apartment. I am told it is interference with the planes landing... flight path about a mile away. I don't buy that. Lived in OB and they took off right over my head and had perfect coverage. Very frustrating as I've gotten used to, over the years, of not paying for cable and internet.

We’ve had poor service for more than four years. Can not receive calls outside of home. Clearly Verizon has a coverage problem and losing customers.
