2 Out of 5 (2 stars) | Landfall, Wilmington, NC 28405 |

When at home in Landfall, we are on 1x with one, maybe two bars. 1x will go away eventually so I don't know what will happen. We had 4g with three to four bars until Hurricane Matthew. Verizon claims there are 7 towers nearby (one within.2 mi) but service in this area is "extremely poor". Switched to Wi-Fi calling with very little success. They have "escalated" our issue again. 15 year loyalty and $400 per month means very little to the folks at Verizon. I would not recommend Verizon to anyone thinking about it, but do not know if any other carrier is any better. #timeforachange #growwiththeworld

Reception in this area has always been poor... seems to be getting worse... used to be 2 bar... now consistently 1 bar... with expense of phone consistently going up, no reception renders phone no good... population / building exploding in this area... perfect area for new tower-old coast guard station on river road

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Just Before the Bridge at Wrightsville Beach | Eastwood and Airlie Rd., Wilmington, NC 28403 |

Verizon customers since 2001. In 2006 thru 2014, we could go out 5 miles out in the ocean with great coverage. Really noticed with iPhone 6s. 2 bars always. Dropping calls. We have a bus. With 8 phones and a personal account. I got the new SIM card as well, no changes. Verizon customer service has ALWAYS addressed my needs. However, there is nothing they can do about it. BTW there is a cell tower 2 blocks from our house.

I just moved to this very nice, new apartment complex and the AT&T service is terrible. It makes me want to move. When the AT&T representative came over to install my cable and Internet he admitted their service is terrible and there was nothing I could do to fix it.

4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | ILM, Wilmington, NC 28401 |

U.S. Cellular coverage in Wilmington, NC is great and hard to beat. AT&T, Verizon, and others have dead spots between Wilmington and Southport, but U.S. Cellular does not. I've had the carrier for 14 years. If you are looking for the best coverage in Southeastern North Carolina, I would highly recommend U.S. Cellular over the others.

Sprint service sucks in this area, I am using VOIP calling to bypass, but nuts that this area so close to Wilmington still can NOT get a decent signal. Any provider that offers international roaming that has proper coverage I will chose.

2 Out of 5 (2 stars) | White Road / Alamosa Off Gordon, Wilmington, NC 28411 |

VZW: I have a Straight Talk Samsung Galaxt Crntura that runs on VZW towers. I dont get but 1-2 bars at home but I still never drop calls. Anywhere. AT&T: AT&Ts 3G / 4G signal is 1-2 bars here but its enough... data and calls are still usuable indoors. You will want to avoid them in Leland, Southport, Porters Neck, off Greenville Loop, Pine Grove, UNCW, River Road, Castle Hayne, Bellevue, Delco, Lake Wacamaw, or Burgaw. T-Mobile: their prices are competitive and so are their deals but avoid them in NC! Theres 5 bars in the White Road / Alamosa area, but you will want to avoid them in Leland, Southport, Porters Neck, off Greenville Loop, Pine Grove, UNCW, River Road, Castle Hayne, Bellevue, Delco, Lake Wacamaw, or Burgaw. Youll suffer. Am not familiar with Sprint or US Cellular in NC. DO NOT GO WITH AT&T / TMOBILE IN BRUNSWICK PENDER ONSLOW NEW HANOVER OR BLADEN COUNTIES. Straight Talk has Androids and iPhones that run on VZW for $45 / mo. unlimited everything. Theres no downside. Save some money!
