Verizon

4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | All, Sarasota, FL 34239 |

I am all over Sarasota and Manatee County. I have no problem dropping calls except on some areas of Longboat Key. I do occasionally end up with 3G instead of 4G when I would expect 4G.

Data connection COMPLETELY SUCKS! Getting.001Mbs down / up COMPLETELY USELESS!, need to use a Mifi from internet on the go in order for the phone to be functional when data is needed!

Moved here a year ago and Verizon service was fine. Now little or no signal in various areas of Verizon. No answer as to when or if it will be fixed. There answer - Buy a network extender or they will let you out of your contract. Pretty sad that I can get 5 full bars in Canada but 0 to 1 at my own home. I refuse to pay them money for something that is their fault!

This area is very poorly served by AT&T! I drove from downtown Sarasota to Lakewood ranch yesterday. I was trying to make a phone call the whole way and it kept dropping. I then spent the afternoon in LWR and had no reception the whole time! Is something wrong with the Fruitville / i75 tower? This was a major problem for me!

Very disappointed with the service. Cannot have a convservation once I enter my development. The bars drop to 1. AT&T told me that I could buy a tower. Why would I do that when I already spend a fortune every month. Will not renew my contract. Visited Colorado last week. Could near great. Ironic since I can't hold a conversation with my neighbor with this service

Verizon has good reception and only few calls drop but... voice quality can be better. Internet is not as responsive as AT&T. The worse: Verizon conference is so bad that it is like not having any conference capabilities on my iPhone.

Sprint

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Fruitville Rd. | Oak Hill Dr., Sarasota, FL 34232 |

Reception Poor to None, One bar maybe 2 sometimes once in a great while, is always on Extended with a degree sign instead of 3G. My battery is drained halfway through the day. According to Sprint / Nextel Coverage Map this area should be serviced by Nextel towers which shows Voice Coverage Best, Map shows Sprint Service at Off-network roaming.

T-Mobile has very impressive coverage. Even in the areas with few bars, everything works fine. Only in certain buildings do I have no signal, and that happens so rarely it doesn't matter at all.

I have no bars inside my office. I'll get 2 bars if I go outside. The minute I step inside my brick and glass building I lose service.

Very poor reception and ATT is no help! Their Company Store on B-Ridge is awful - avoid that store at all costs, rude, insensitive, worthless!

We switched from Verizon to Sprint when we decided to share on a family members plan. We had 4-5 bars on Verizon and 3g usually... With Sprint?? I have 1=2 bars maybe and sometimes not even a single bar and it constantly tells me I am roaming... .

Switched from Verizon to get get a less expensive plan. Coverage is horrible. My calls are constantly dropped. I guess you get what you pay for. I paid alot of $ for the metro PCS phone, and it's not doing me any good.

Many calls to my phone don't ring; many of those that ring are bad connections -- typically I can hear the caller but they can't hear me.

Looking at the map of ATT cell towers it's no wonder the reception is so poor in this area.

I experienced sever degradation of my voice service with AT&T over the last 3 years I was in Redmond, WA and every time I went to an AT&T store to report the problem I was told it must be my phone. I worked for AT&T Wireless for over a decade, and the problem is clearly with their network and the provisioning of voice circuits. I suspect AT&T is over-engineering packet data channels to keep up even minimum service for growing data, but at the expense of voice service - which is primarily what I use my mobile for. Moving to Sarasota appears to have made the problem worse: on about 50% of y call attempts, I get NO network coverage at all, and if I'm lucky 1 bar. I will be changing carriers shortly, but I will investigate which operator provides the best voice coverage here first.
