1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Lamie's To Gus's Bikes | Rt. 1, Hampton, NH 03842 |

You would think being a tourist destination, Hampton would have excellent AT&T service but it doesn't. Along Route 1 from Lamie's into North Hampton around Home Depot, I get maybe one bar of 4G! Forget getting LTE coverage. The same goes for the neighborhoods around Mace Road. I live in Exeter now near Exit 12 and thankfully have LTE coverage even inside.

4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | Island Path (101, Near "Welcome To Hampton Beach" , Hampton, NH 03842 |

I left my original review on 8 / 29 / 11 below. Have since moved within town. Signal strength: -97 dBm BUT I JUST did a data speed test. 62ms ping, 28.23 Mbps down and 5.16 Mbps up. LTE baby! As of today, reports are coming in of LTE coverage as far north as the bridge between Dover and Newington. I had an LTE signal at Target in Greenland last night. AT&T is still too expensive but its network just keeps getting better in this area.

No reception at all inside. Outside I have to walk around to find 2 bars and when I do I can't move or I will lose the call. It's terrible!

AT&T

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | 0.5 Miles From Lamie's / Old Salt | Jct Rte 1 and Rte 27, Hampton, NH 03842 |

Inside test. Signal strength of -101 dBM (closer to zero is best). ***Bars don't tell you anything because the change in signal strength from 4 to 5 bars varies depending on your device*** Ping is 137ms / down is 0.88 Mbps (or 880 Kbps) / up is 0.17 Mbps. If I go 1.7 miles up Rte one to N. Hampton (Home Depot / Staples) I get around 2-3 Mbps, even inside a building. I was able to stream on Netflix without issue at those speeds. AT&T signal is quite good WHEN it is good which, unfortunately, is not consistently enough. Still I have unlimited data (grandfathered) so for now I will stay.

In past 4 months my poor service has turned to non-existant, Verizon tells me they have reorganized the antennas and some have been terminated. Have dropped calls, poor call quality and sometimes sit outside to call at all and experience dropped calls and poor reception. No bars show on my phone anymore.

My reception is horrible. My bars go from 1 to 3 and then it starts roaming then the signal fades and the call is dropped.

Can recieve texts, can send texts (after 2-3 tries) Often times will miss a phonecall but recieve a voicemail alert a minute later. I tried calling myself from a house phone. Sometimes I can outward dial but I usually use a house phone. Cell service in NH defies description on any carrier.

Dropped Sprint in 2008, which never worked at home, and switched to AT&T, which at least allows us to complete most calls. We are a mile from the ocean, in Hampton at the border of North Hampton.

Nextel

0 Out of 5 (0 stars) | West of 95 | Exeter Dr / 111, Hampton, NH 03842 |

We have had Nextel phone service (plus the direct connect) for 2 years now and we can NEVER get any recpeption in our home. We keep complaining to Nextel but all they do is give us a warm fuzzy sales pitch. The I hear we could move our phone service over to Sprint (which is really the same company since they merged). They say that Sprint Phone Service is more powerful and "might" give us better recpetion in this area of NH Seacoast. Before we make the move from Nextel to Sprint service we want to hear from others who have Sprint. Anyone think that Sprint phone service is better than Nextel in Hampton NH close to Exeter ?

Pointing my phone toward the beach area will give me better reception, otherwise I get 1 to 2 bars in my house and around my yard. I miss calls frequently, and text messages and voicemails usually come in 30 mins later.

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Winnacunnet Rd. | Locke Rd., Hampton, NH 03842 |

My phone works fine when I am outside (1 or 2 bars) but when I come inside I have to stay in certain parts of the house. I lose my call if I bend over to get something out of the crisper drawer in the fridge, but not if I am standing in the same spot. I lose calls usually in the same spots through out the house. It is very frustrating that I can be sitting in the same spot and talk for a while and not move and then lose my signal. My husband has Verizon and he has 4 or 5 bars no matter where he is in the house.

3 Out of 5 (3 stars) | Ocean Blvd. | High Street Route 27, Hampton, NH 03842 |

The new (Cingular?) cell tower has been approved located just off Rt. 101 near Hampton Beach. My Verizon phone works well (4) on the third floor of my townhouse and sometimes I can get out on the 1st and 2nd floor. No service at all at ground level for at least half mile in either direction on Ocean Blvd. Reception gets better going south but N. Hampton has little or no reception near the beach. Hopefully the new Rt. 101 tower will get everyone to sign on and help the beach.

They are promising a new tower to be operational as soon as the court renders a decision. The tower is up with nothing on it until the judge say yay. Two nearby residents are posting a last ditch stand with little hope. Four carriers will probably sign on once it's over. Service sucks once you get east of Rt. 1.
