2 Out of 5 (2 stars) | 80 Riverside Blvd. | Between West 63rd and West 64th, New York, NY 10069 |

On a good day I get two bars in my apartment. I can get three bars in a specific five square foot area of my apartment. The common areas of my apartment building are much worse. One bar or less is standard unless you are twenty feet or less from a building entrance. Cell service is generally bad on Riverside Blvd. but inside the buildings it is horrendous. I dont know if this is due to the construction of the buildings around here, or a lack of cell towers or the fact that ABC has a studio with a massive satellite dish the is causing interference. Or perhaps Verizon just plain sucks. But it's not like any of the other carriers suck less right?

Once I'm in my building I get only 1 to 2 bars (Stuyvesant Town - NY). Some calls are dropped, I cannot hear caller and caller cannot hear me.

My service at home and in the 10036 zip code (at work on the 26th floor) is very good. The LTE speed and call quality when I'm at work is very good, with no dropping of calls or the Internet signal. The only current problem I'm having is that my caller ID does not show up while during an outgoing call!

Sprint service sucks throughout all of NY. When I am here at work on 125 4g LTE either doesn't work or is extremely slow. I have contacted Sprint a number of times as well as went into the Sprint store next door to see what is going on with service and still no answer and no improvement. As soon as my contract is up I am leaving Sprint with all of my lines. Service is ridiculously horrible and would not recommend it to anyone.

Service is garbage. Can't place or receive calls and I'm only on the third fl of my UWS apartment. Can't wait for my contract to run out and I'll switch to T-MO

The reception used to be fast and reliable, until about 2 weeks ago. Now I'm lucky if I can get even 4G, most the time I am inside a building I can't get ANY service, I'll randomly get text messages that will say sent over 1hr ago.

I had nearly perfect reception and coverage with Sprint 30-40 feet away from a window at one of the Rockefeller Center's building on the 15th floor. Since I switched to ATT a year and 3 months ago (thinking it would be better) it has not been great (I also bought a new S5 then). Every time I step 10 feet into a building (whichever building in the city) I lose coverage and cant receive calls. I have never been sure if it was my Samsung S5 or ATT, but had a feeling it was ATT. At my office I sit 5 feet away from a window to the main street and coverage was ok. In the past month however, something must have changed as I now never have coverage. The phone says I have 4 bars and 4G but I get absolutely nothing, texts fail to be sent and received, pages dont load, etc. So frustrating. Thinking of switching to either Verizon or Sprint again.

Absolutely pathetic internet connection / 4G LTE.. It shows I have 4G LTE signal but the download / upload time is painstakingly slow. NEVER EVER with AT&T
