Verizon has been aware of the poor to NO cell / wifi reception in the Fruitland area for years. They choose to do nothing about it. Unacceptable, especially if you are running a business dependent upon Internet access. Green Mountain Rd.Hendersonville, NC 28792. NO coverage much of the time now august 2014

Only rarely do we have a poor signal since using USC. AT&T was poor here a year ago, returned their phone. Verizon was spotty here, but family and friends with iPhones seem to always have a signal here.

Carrier is Straight Talk and they use some Verizon towers. Phone is iphone 5. I had reception until about 3-4 weeks ago and now I have to stand out in the middle of my yard to get one bar. Straight talk unable to help me through their trouble shooting process. It is the signal and not the phone! Not sure whether Verizon has other towers that will carry where I live... checking that tonight.

AT&T

0 Out of 5 (0 stars) | Crab Creek Rd., Hendersonville, NC 28739 |

Contrary to the last commentator (is there a way to report that post for offensive content?), I do not even know how to make meth nor do I use a CB radio. Neither do my neighbors in the immediate surrounding area. No moonshine distillers or sisters that are also wives either, in case you were wondering. Got to love people who put the first three letters in the word "assumption"... They are correct in their statement that after the firehouse leaving Hendersonville there is no reception, however. The only company that seems to officially cover this area is Verizon. I do not own a Verizon phone at this time, so I cannot confirm this. Despite AT&T having a tower on the other side of the mountain range (less than 2.5 miles from my location), reception indoors at our house is awful. If I walk down the hill and into the valley, I can get 1 bar in spots. Sprint / Virgin seems to do alright for voice and data indoors (one bar depending upon where you are in the house), but their official maps do not cover our area. I'm debating purchasing a Verizon MiFi since their map lists our area as being within the 3G coverage area. If I bite the bullet, I'll let you all know how it works.

AT&T added their 3g network to Hendersonville and it is amazing! Some dead zones aren't dead zones anymore, call quality is improved, and data is 3x faster than Verizon (in my tests)

Coming from Verizon (the monopoly carrier around here) I was expecting a HUGE drop in coverage quality. While service did go down in some places (Crab Creek Rd), call quality increased 10 fold as well as lees dropped calls. If you live somewhere with AT&T signal, they're the better choice simply because of call quality itself. According to a recent press release, 3g is expected sometime by the end of the year for both Henderson and Buncombe counties. This is great news!

UGH! Verizon seriously sucks. I'm tired of their lackluster phones and spotty coverage in Hendersonville. I'm switching to AT&T when my contract is done and never looking back. Coverage is unforgivable

This area used to be a 'fringe area', with the school in the valley surrounded by hills signal was weak although it was still usable. Went there today and had 4 EV bars and 3 1x bars. Verizon must have tweaked the signal. Indoor coverage was better as well. I would loose service in my sons class but not longer do. Maybe its the phone, but in general coverage seems to be rocking it around here with Verizon lately. Props!

Everyone here is ragging on Verizon, but in truth, if your Verizon phone has no service, nobody does. True, there are dead zones and call quality is a little iffy at times but at least you have service in all sorts of places that your friends with AT&T won't. It's a different story in Raleigh however, but in the mountains Verizon is the best choice. USC might be okay considering you can roam on Verizon, but their network isn't as reliable here. The majority of the population in Hendersonville has Verizon so you get the benefits on IN calling. I've had all major 3 (ATT, VZ, Sprint) and Verizon is the only choice in Hendersonville. I would love it if they built a tower right at the entrance of Pisgah so the signal would travel. DuPont has usable signal is the majority of the places however

On par with the best reception you can ask for. However the phone selection is from the late 90's.

AT&T

4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | Hendersonville / Asheville, Hendersonville, NC 28739 |

Against a common misconception that AT&T in the mountains sucks, I find it on par with Verizon and US Cellular and at times better. AT&T seems to keep a more stable signal and has higher call quality which leads to less dropped calls and network busy signals than with Verizon. This could be capacity issues as well considering the majority of people have Verizon. There are a few dead zones (mainly in backwoods rural places in the middle of no where) but suprisingly I could call and text from the top of mount mitchell as well as hiking up mount pisgah. As with all carriers coverage on the parkway is spotty. If you travel to anywhere else in North Carolina, AT&T is the only way to go. They are FAR superior to Verizon in both Raleigh and Charlotte

Verizon could use some help in the Hendersonville / Asheville / WNC area. Terrible call quality and lack of service. Dead spot at that location

Great reception on Kanuga Rd. and throughout Hendersonville. Dead spot located at Kanuga / Old Kanuga intersection. Coverage maps show moderate service but actually no usable signal (phone shows no service). A new tower to cover Crab Creek Rd. would be good.

4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | All Through Hendersonville, Hendersonville, NC 28739 |

Initially I was nervous about switching to AT&T from Verizon but now I am glad I did. Coverage with Verizon was ok at best and call quality wasn't the greatest which suprised me because the majority of the people here have Verizon. Verizon has coverage in a few places on the parkway AT&T doesn't but for the most part they are equal. AT&T has FAR better call quality than Verizon. Verizon has their 3g network in Hendersonville, AT&T not yet. They just added Greenville though and Asheville is next. Other than that no reception issues. I really do have more bars in most places than I did with Verizon as well as less dropped calls and better call quality.

Sprint

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | All Hendersonville | Kanuga, Hendersonville, NC 28739 |

used to be decent, in past 2 1 / 2 months, continuous dropped calls and "service not available". have talked with at least 3 other Sprint customers all of whom have the same problem, totally unstable signal. Even at the Sprint store on 4 seasons blvd. they are surprised at the instability of their service and claim it's a tower issue. Sprint customer service says there are no issues in the area and network coverage is from 92 - 98% on all 5 towers, they lie. I have been averaging over 70 dropped calls a month.

With Verizon, almost everywhere I go, I can get a usable signal, even in DuPont State Forest... you'd be surprised; if you're outside and only have one bar, it really goes a long way. The only "no service" spot I've found is mills river campground (small dirt road straight down the side of the mountian on the Parkway), and the tunnels on the Parkway. There's a couple places in the boonies out here Verizon doesn't pick up, US Cellular lets me roam with em, and all of VZWs plans are National so I dont care!

I have at most one bar and this is constantly changing from searching for service to one bar. Even when I go into Brevard the most it ever was was 2 bars. Verizon is decent in Asheville though I have never tested an AT&T phone. Sprint sucks everywhere basically
