This is terrible service and keeps getting worse! When I call they deny there is a problem. Anyone else interested in a class action?

Rarely do I get reception in my house. When I moved here I had ATT and it was bad, so I switched to Verizon. It worked great for awhile, but now I get maybe 1 bar if I'm Lucy and that is outside my house and it drops almost every call. I'm switching to something else. Don't recommend Verizon at all.ive made several calls to resolve the issue and they only made it worse.

I have never experienced such a pitiful signal as I have in Wilmington. It doesn't matter where I am. I never ever have more than two bars. Phone calls are missed. Text might send, keyword is MIGHT. Using social media or looking up a restaurant? Not with Sprint service in this town. Truly disappointed

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

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.

US Cellular

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.
