0 Out of 5 (0 stars) | MacDill Air Force Base | MacDill Ave., Tampa, FL 33611 |

To say that T-Mobile coverage near MacDill Airforce Base is horrible, would be an understatement. I have 3 lines with T-Mobile and I've had great coverage in South Tampa, but since I moved to Bayshore by MacDill Airforce Base, I'm lucky to get 1-bar. My calls are frequently dropped and the data keeps switching from LTE to GPRS. This is happening on all my lines and I'm not the only one. I know other people that live near me that had problems with their T-Mobile service and switched carriers because it was so bad. I called T-Mobile today and they said they were sending my a signal booster for free, so I guess I'll just have to wait and see, but this has cost me lots of time and money.

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | South MacDill Near Air Force Base | Old Bayshore Blvd., Tampa, FL 33611 |

I love T-Mobile's prices and customer service but the two phones I have used with T-Mobile have both gotten dreadful coverage even though there is LTE in this zipcode. But within the zipcode, I am near a dead zone. Worse, my phone sounds like I am at the bottom of a well. The call quality is abysmal. My friend has an iPhone and Verizon and does not have any reception problems even when making calls from my location. I do not believe it is my phone since this same call quality also happened with a Samsung phone and T-Mobile.

Better than Verizon in this area. At home a MicroCell is a must!

Over the past week I've lost all internet connectivy three times. Sprint "customer support" first told me there was an issue in Tampa, but the next day said my phone must be malfunctioning. Anyone else lose data in Tampa?

AT&T

2 Out of 5 (2 stars) | New Tampa | BB Downs and Cross Creek Blvd., Tampa, FL 33647 |

Coverage in New Tampa is very poor on AT&T. I have an iPhone 5 (family has 4 iPhone 5's) - office building at BB Downs and I-75 - no reception inside building at all - right next to I-75. Home in Cross Creek subdivision off Cross Creek and Kinan St. - no reception / drops calls constantly. AT&T solution - purchase MicroCell and pay $10 aditional per month to use my own (seperately purchased) Broadband connection. AT&T sucks. BTW - Firmware updates and network updates are all current and done regularly per AT&T support - just crappy coverage.

I did not have major probs with AT&T until moving to these apartments. I called them to discuss options, and all they did was suggest I purchase a microcell device. Not cool; I'll be switching to T-Mobile soon. My friends w T-Mobile do get signal in my apartment.

Sprint

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Hillsborough Ave. | George Rd., Tampa, FL 33634 |

Even though I have 3-5 bars most of the time, and even though it says I'm in 'LTE' coverage, the speeds are painfully slow at best and sometimes very unreliable with sending / receiving iMessages / texts. Coming from AT&T where speeds were never an issue, it sucks that I'm forced into Sprint due to using a company-paid phone.

4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | Britton Plaza | S Dale Mabry and Gandy, Tampa, FL 33611 |

Ive had Verizon since the beginning of time and was scared to leave them because they get coverage everywhere. Well I made that switch to TMobile. Although I don't have full bars everywhere I'm always at least at 3, and the data speeds are way faster than Verizon. Im happy I made the switch because my bill is cut in half! I'll see how it is the next few days!
