0 Out of 5 (0 stars) | Kenwood - 21st and Oliver, Minneapolis, MN 55405 |

It is astounding that Verizon continues to have no reception in the heart of the most affluent neighborhood in Minneapolis. Yet this remains the case and has been the case for years. In the Kenwood neighborhood and all around Cedar Lake and Lake of the Isles, Sprint has a virtual monopoly because Verizon refuses to fix this known issue. I have Verizon for work (no choice) and they have repeatedly stated, for three years now, that this is a known issue and will be addressed, yet nothing happens. If they would increase coverage in this neighborhood they would immediately obtain many accounts for those who travel, since overall Verizon has better coverage in the rural midwest and for those who travel to other states.

I have only been with T-Mobile 21 days and I hate it- only reason I went to them is my Husband has wonderful service with them, and I can't figure out why if we live in same house! I get 1 bar and gets 3. we have 2 different phones and tried a cell booster and have wifi and still have dropped calls and no reception on my phone. Data is slow- it contricks what they say, I was better off staying wth ATT

Just moved into this location and the next morning my connection becomes shitty and couldn't believe it. My last location was a wide open area where my connection was strong and now it's super short. And I have T-mobile.

Coverage was good up until this last month. Toggles between 1 and 2 bars. Drops calls and just about everyone I talk to complains about not being able to hear me.

Constantly experiencing dropped calls. The problem has been going on for a number of months. No cell phone service at all at work - other people don't have the same problem with their carrier. No internet service - unless I use wi-fi.

Sprint has very patchy network, not as promised when I signed up. Please beware of that. Customer service is very bad. For instance, I couldn't access my account online and Sprint customer service gave me the run around so I did all transactions over the phone even though that's not what I wanted. I wanted an upgrade to an iPhone 6 and my previous contract could not count towards it, bear in mind I would be paying the same amount that I did for the 4S and it would require to sign another 2 yr contract..considering the bad service I'd had, I finally decided I'd had enough and skipped the network but they still gave me grief, customer service asked me why I needed my account information when I needed to transfer over to another carrier-something other networks would give to the customer, they gave me grief with my final bill talking about it will take them 5-7 business days to send it out even after requesting two weeks earlier for it, so altogether it took them 3 wks to send a piece of paper..even snail mail is not that slow! The customer service reps were rude too, I'd ask for something and they'd ramble on about something else trying to evade my question hoping I'll forget. Hello! I'm not a toddler you can distract momentarily. Overall, I wouldn't recommend this network to anyone, it only gets worse!

Calls seem to work fine, but I don't make many of those. Texts can be slow to send. Data coverage is often very bad, but it depends on the time of day and day of the week. The worst is weekday afternoons when the largest amount of people are in Downtown Minneapolis. There doesn't even need to be a special event going on--just the normal amount of people will cause data to drop out. The data network often goes down to 3G level and sometimes doesn't work at all. However, when fewer people are Downtown, such as weekends, evenings, and early in the morning, then the data works fine.

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Downtown MPLS | Washington, 10th Ave.S., Minneapolis, MN 55415 |

Bad reception for 5 months, drops every other phone call. Of the calls that go thru the other end says they can't make out my words. Called Verizon a few times and just hung with a supervisor. He confessed that it has to do with the new stadium and will not resolve until construction ends. He said the City of MPLS is at fault. Further he said many people have the same problem. I told him they cannot charge for a service they cannot provide, probably illegal. He said they will not give any credit for lack of service period and further he gave me an address if I would like to have my lawyer contact them. WOW. I'm thinking of doing it.

3 Out of 5 (3 stars) | 29th St. NE | Roosevelt St. Ne, Minneapolis, MN 55418 |

Weak-ish signal in basement, but calls rarely drop. Have experiences missed calls due to reception. Upstairs is far better. Data is typically pretty fast. I work in Golden Valley (394 and 100) and don't have any reception issues either. However, Roseville and West St. Paul are atrocious for data (i.e. no connection whatsoever).
