Consistently poor reception all over and outside the house and even on the roof. We are just 4 blocks from the Maine Medical Center. I would think Verizon could put an antenna on the hospital, which would provide decent reception at the hospital as well as the large adjacent residential area on and around the Western Prom.Was this review helpful to you?
Initially we had good reception with Verizon, better than A T and T. Now horrible, need to sit by one window to make calls. Verizon investigated but never got back to us. Looking into changing carriers or buying personal cell boosters.. Ugh!Was this review helpful to you?
Using the Sprint network through Virgin Mobile and I have horrible coverage indoors. In my apartment, my partner's apartment and my place of work I struggle to get a single bar to send a text while roommates and coworkers can access their 3 and 4G without a problem. Texts often arrive hours late and I get voicemail without ever receiving a call. Would only recommend to people who live in their car; service is fine outdoors.Was this review helpful to you?
I travel between Belgrade and Portland frequently. While in my house on the lake in North Belgrade I get great service. 4 to 5 bars 4G data awesome. Data speed is 10 times faster than my TWC cable internet connection. At my house in the West End of Portland the complete service really stinks. One room in my house I get 4G and 2 bars. Other rooms it's 1x data and just a couple of bars. In my basement I can't even get a signal. Some times it's better but mostly it's BAD.Was this review helpful to you?
Every time I make a call or receive a call, it is dropped. Also, my voice is scattered on the other end. They keep promising me this will be fixed, but it hasn't been and from what I read on this site, there isn't much hope with other companies either.Was this review helpful to you?
While not as robust as the speeds in Boston AT&T gives mostly useable speed in Portland metro. I averaged around 4.5 Mbps inside. while that hardly blistering, I was certainly able to use Facebook, Twitter, send text with pic attachments. I've noticed that I was able to get much higher speeds outside in an open space a pox 25 mbps. I had plenty of bars and on my iPhone 6 and calls connected quickly and were clear. I think that in general all networks are a little thin in Portland and when you factor in the large summer crowds speeds come Down some.Was this review helpful to you?
Data speed is horrible (150 to 350 kb / s!). Calls drop often. Called Verizon with complaints several times with no help. Going to change cariers as their network is slower than my first dial up internet in late 80s!Was this review helpful to you?
Phone service no complaints- data during the day is at 1x level. A disappointment considering the hype for their xlte.Was this review helpful to you?
Now having great LTE reception on a Maine T-Mobile network. About time T-mobile! Portland has been waiting for it.Was this review helpful to you?
The closest cell tower is just under 2.5 miles away by the freeway. Which leaves the city itself as a marginal service are in Portland maine. I've called many of times to Verizon before finding this out and paying $193.00 for the crappy reception. I'm not the only who suffers from this, but let say spotify, Google play and other downloads. A lot of them had to unsubscribe to because of the unreliable service.Was this review helpful to you?
