1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Eastern Promenade | Congress St., Portland, ME 04101 |

At highest point in Portland, the economic and population center of Maine, yet just awful signal quality. Static, dropped calls, unable to connect to network, variable signal strength, wat to much time at 1x... Pretty much every problem you can imagine, including draining the battery looking for signal

I seem to get okay reception if I make calls in the early morning hours - around 8AM or earlier, but the rest of the day, it's terrible. I can hear others fine, but no one can hear me.

1 or 2 bars at best. Phone misses 1 / 2 of calls to me. It just doesn't ring. Then later I realize someone called. HORRIBLE!

I can almost see the tower on Monument Square from my 3rd floor office and I still only get 1 bar 90% of the time. This is crap.

T-Mobile's service on the peninsula is complete garbage. In some spots it is average at best. It is never good.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.
