The address location provided is in a variable coverage area. VCA's cause various issues such as loss of signal, dropped calls, noise or static, one way audio, slow connections, low signal, frequent internet disconnections and missed calls. Verizon Wireless radio frequency (RF) engineers and system performance engineers regularly evaluate network coverage and performance to identify locations that may require additional coverage. Based on their analyses and recommendations cell site construction or other improvements are then planned and budgeted accordingly. Verizon Wireless' specific network expansion plans, locations and timetables are considered proprietary and confidential. Unfortunately, the customer's location is completely surrounded by a variable coverage area. The customer would benefit from a network extender but it does require high-speed internet which the customer stated she does not have. This is their reply to my no service issue, I have to get Internet in my home in order to use my cell phone... did you know it's the consumers responsibility to make sure VW towers provide coverage past a 4 miles radius? Yeah I didn't either!Was this review helpful to you?
Coverage is 1-2 bars in this area and switches constantly between LTE, 3G, and "Extended" service. Call quality is subpar compared to other areas.Was this review helpful to you?
Moved here in August 2014 from Atlanta. Never had a problem with Sprint in Atlanta --ever. Calls were very spotty at home, but I never had a problem on campus. I looked at Cspire and Verizon, but ultimately went with Verizon because of the national coverage and my wife already had an account with them. Verizon has been very good, but I think it may be one of the most expensive too.Was this review helpful to you?
Horrible service now for 4 years and about fed up and going to try other options. Have called AT&T almost monthly with no results: other than them providing a M-cell which has only helped marginally to get service from a No Service to 1 bar to sometimes 3 bar. My internet service is horrible and my sell service is slightly better than horribleWas this review helpful to you?
Just moved to Oxford. I live 2 miles from campus on College Hill Rd and have NO service at all. Spent 30 min on the phone with Sprint and all they can do is send a couple engineers to the area to look into the problem...Was this review helpful to you?
I was a prior AT&T customer until I switched to Verizon over two years ago. I was sick of the dropped calls and no signal. With Verizon, it's rare that I don't have a signal. I think I've managed to find myself without coverage maybe twice in two years versus near daily with AT&T.Was this review helpful to you?
I have Sprint and yes the signal bar is one or two but I never had a call drop or any service problems. With an Evo 4g you cant go wrong! O and its rooted Free! WIFI Tethering!Was this review helpful to you?
I've had this Virgin Mobile phone for two months. I have had no clarity or dropout problems using it in Oxford. It does have occasional signal losses in areas between Oxford and Jackson, Tupelo, and Birmingham; but waiting a minute for a strong signal hasn't been a problem for me. I tested our area south of Oxford with a friend's Sprint phone before buying the new phone, since Virgin Mobile is a Sprint subsidiary. We previously had both Verizon and StraightTalk which uses Verizon as the carrier. The Verizon service was flawless, but expensive. StraightTalk surprisingly gave us frequent dropouts with a message which said, "Call Ended."Was this review helpful to you?
On campus I get good reception, 3G everywhere, except on game days. So many people come in at the same time on game days that the service grinds to a halt. Off campus service is good in town, but as soon as you head out of town all bets are off.Was this review helpful to you?
I know what you mean. I live around that area. My service use to be great with AT&T, now it just sucks. I switch over and got the Pearl Flip with Verizon and I have great service all the way up to 78 and south of town! I noticed that my pearl would only pick up on EDGE, my Verizon phone picks up on 3G. The internet is a lot faster.Was this review helpful to you?
