4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | Delaware Ave. and Amherst St., Buffalo, NY 14216 |

Switched from Sprint about 5 years ago. I would routinely get less than 3g and almost never got 4g. Called and talked to a territory rep, he said they were aware of the poor service but had no immediate plans to fix it. Bye Felicia. Switched to T-Mobile and couldn't be happier! Only a few bad spots here and there throughout the entire city.

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Cheektowaga Union Rd.By Walden Going Towards West , Buffalo, NY 14210 |

I have noticed that when I am in traffic or just driving around Cheektowaga near the galleria on union near edgebrook estates my signal drops to 1 bar LTE and will not load anything errors out of Pandora YouTube and kicks me offline when I'm at work I have full bars but my phone tells me I have no internet connection on the bringg app. When there is rush hour on the 90 anywhere I can never get enough band with to even stream music from Pandora with that being said the call quality is okay but the amount of time I'm on a congested tower seems near constant and I noticed especially after 22GB its almost impossible to use data in populated areas the only feature that keeps me hooked is the hotspot is really good but I am having an itch after 8 months to go back to metro PCS and try their plan again they were definitely faster on data Sprint was okay but no reception in my apartment and I have not tried AT&T because they don't have affordable unlimited

I live in a development that was just built behind the dollar tree and there is little to no reception in the lobby of my complex, in the elevator it drops out in the stairwells it drops out but other than that in my room I get between 2-5 bars of LTE or sometimes full 3G not too bad. And the surrounding area is pretty good signal I am a car porter and when I drive from west seneca Lackawanna area down to Fredonia Jamestown I never drop reception. Tonight I am going to test the reception out near Camden NY to see if the signal drops between here and there but so far I have not dropped reception completely

AT&T has been very good to me for the past couple years I've been here, but it definitely seems like there are more Verizon users in this area. I've never had any trouble with AT&T thus far around the city and surrounding areas, but like many others, it gets to be a problem when I'm out in the rural parts; for example, some parts of Lockport, Catteraugus, Batavia, etc.

I've had Verizon for a long time with no issues. But for the past 4 months I have no G. No where. Verizon had me switch out the phone. Same problem develops. I planning to switch carriers as soon as I can. Am I the only one with no G... .?

I do usually maintain the 4G LTE coverage, but it bounces between 1 and 3 bars most of the time. Only sometimes is drops to 3G or 1X. I am originally from Ohio, the Dayton / Cincinnati area. I would say the coverage is a little lower here than it was there. I only occasionally have to reload pages or apps when it is slow. I haven't ever dropped a call here, though.

Have used Sprint for awhile. It used to be horrible in the area, but they have improved by leaps and bounds over the past three years. As long as you have a device compatible with their "LTE Plus" network, network speeds are comparable and sometimes exceed other carriers. Only dislike about the carrier is sometimes the phone will bounce between LTE and 3G when you are in rural areas or deep in the southtowns.

I've been with T-Mobile for a couple years now and constantly changing phones (no reason for the change orher then its just something new) my service is excellent, my only issue is with the customer service and the habitual lying
