Verizon

4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | 80 Vandenburgh Ave., Troy, NY 12180 |

Pretty good service, the 4g can be kind of slow sometimes, but generally it works. Never had a problem with calls or texts, only internet.No dropped calls on my end, and texts send instantaneously 80% of the time. Only problem I've ever had with service has been in my apartment, in which some cases I would have to restart my phone because it could not find service. Think that's more of a model problem though.

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Reynolds Rd. | Bloomingrove Dr., Troy, NY 12180 |

Signal is very unreliable here, can go from full bars to no signal without changing location. Most of the time there are 2-3 bars. Dropped calls are frequent.

2 Out of 5 (2 stars) | Near RPI, Troy, NY 12180 |

Reception is usually good enough to make a call easily, but data reception is often too slow to be usable; it is often worse than dial-up.

3 Out of 5 (3 stars) | 21st St. | Hoosic St., Troy, NY 12180 |

Upper Hoosic St. is probably the best place for Sprint / VM coverage. It's always 2 bars, Data is pretty good, It's not verizon, but it's $27 a month, trade off. I'm sure an upgrade to ICS would speed things along with the phone (there's been complaints with the Triumphs reception, but I thought it came from people "demanding perfection regardless of price" or their turtlenecks were too tight.) I'll tell you this you won't beat VM for the price, but there's trade offs. I haven't found any phone from any service that touched me in all the right places in this area code, and I've manged to have them all in the last 20 or so years. I got 4 bars with this set up once, but I was on the to deck of a dinner cruise ship on lake Champlain.

Just got a Boost mobile phone the other day. My husband has had one and no problems. I started getting error messages and no network the other day. I called Boost they say there is damage to a tower that also services Sprint. I thought by today would be fixed. I called back, they say restoration is tommorow.

AT&T

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Jordan Rd. | North Greenbush, Troy, NY 12180 |

Dropped calls 20% of time or mire. 1-2 bars most time if lucky. 3G mode works sometimes then E kicks in Please fix this problem AT&T. Right across from rpi tech park - most powerful computer in the world. Hmmmm. Maybe that's the issue?

AT&T

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | 4th | Ferry, Troy, NY 12180 |

When I walk into my building my calls drop. There's a pile of them right next to the door. You'd think standing in the show window that faces the cell tower would work, but no. On the sidewalk outside, I get 2 more bars but calls still sometimes drop. Verizon was no problem, I could walk through the building and talk. With AT&T I have to be on the sidewalk. And I've switched all my business calls over to the cell because Verizon was so great.

T-Mobile

3 Out of 5 (3 stars) | Rpi | Downtown Troy, Troy, NY 12180 |

Despite some of the comments I have seen in this forum, I decided to try my T-Mobile service in Troy, NY. Now, I find that it has decent service in and around RPI. It may sometimes show only 2 bars, but did not drop a call. I can make a call from my office in the basement at RPI, while a lot of my colleagues have to go out to the corridor to get a good signal. I have decided to stay with it because it is better than most of the other services I have seen.
