Unable to make or receive calls unless you are standing in the middle of the road! ATT is terrible.

The reception is perfect in this area. I can't remember the last dropped call. Data service in this area is ok. I last clocked the speed in this area to be 10-15 Mbps download / upload. Speed is as high as 50 Mbps / 10Mbps around the airport. I maintain 3 bars or greater regardless of where I am in Raleigh, NC.

Attempting to stream a live sporting event and it is terrible. Blocky, can't tell who anybody is or where the ball is. By comparison, at my home in the giant metropolis of Des Moines, Iowa, I stream the exact same content in crystal clear HD, with zero buffering. In fact it looks as good as watching on my HD TV. What up Raleigh? Love Raleigh, but being honest, I would likely smash my phone if I had to live with this poor reception.

I had ATT&T. Biggest mistake to switch to Verizon. Dropped calls, messages often sent as "text message" or delayed. Always less than 2 bars. In a town the size of Raleigh, no carrier has an excuse for such poor reception.

Just moved to this neighborhood and our AT&T service is horrendous. Ironically, AT&T just installed fiber to the curb in our new neighborhood, but that doesn't resolve the cell coverage issues. Guess we have to switch after 14 years with AT&T.

Since moving here 4-5 years ago we have had terrible reception 0-1 bar usually (in and out of the house) and calls often get dropped. People with other carriers get strong signals here. Complained to AT&T and they said we are in a great location between 2 cell towers. We got a microcell to help with poor reception and now can get 5 bars when close (20 feet) to the unit, however, it goes out much of the time and must be reset.

If I'm lucky I get 1 to 2 bars during the day while inside my apartment and being near a window. At night I have no signal inside my apartment. I have to walk outside, a few feet away to use my phone and that'll give me two bars. The service is really bad.

I live over by Edwards Mill and Duraleigh Road, and I don't get any reception. Calls always drop and I would not recommend them!

I have T-Mobile and get excellent reception without drop calls. The service is pretty good throughout Raleigh!
