I go to school at Loyola and service in and around Loyola University is non-existent. 0-1 bars. How can AT&T be this bad in a major city?

Just relocated to the area, still waiting on my house hold goods but when I lived in Colorado Verizon sent me an extender because I lived in the foothills, took it with me to Arizona and it works as well, can’t wait to get my stuff so I can plug it in.

AT&T is great in the downtown and near north neighborhoods - the affluent areas of Chicago - but horrible coverage in Rogers Park - even around Loyola University. It's sad to see AT&T place priority only on the areas with money.

I recently obtained a Verizon phone for work. Only 1 bar 24 hours a day. I can receive calls but get Failed Call messages when returning missed calls. Email attachments do not open due to poor signal strength. Verizon has had pathetic service in Chicago northside and Loop high-rise buildings for years. I switched from Verizon to T-Mobile 15 years ago when I got 1-bar signal strength in my LaSalle St.high-rise office and in my Lake Shore / Addison residence. T-Mobile always has 4 bars, and other building residents have switched from Verizon to other carriers for the same reason. Verizon should be ashamed of itself.

1 bar inside my house. Cmon Verizon please get it together! Lousy reception and I switched carriers for this. Don’t switch to Verizon until they get more reception out there.

I recently moved. to NEMA. My roomates have AT&T and have excelent coverage although my coverage in this building is almost nonexistent. Same thing this weekend when we went to New Buffalo Michigan. They had excellent coverage with AT&T and I had no coverage with T Mobile. Guess I need a new carrier.
