1 Out of 5 (1 star) | City Hall | 16th and Market, Philadelphia, PA 19103 |

There is a serious deficiency in the amount of towers and bandwidth allocated by Verizon for users in the heart of center city Philly. The response and data speeds are so slow that on a number of occasions trying to use speedtest it just times out. Verizon is well aware (just talk to any of the people working at the Market St. store) of the lack of throughput that is available. Basically it comes down to too many users and not enough towers to accommodate the load.

Sprint sucks! I've been with Sprint for the past year and a half and I've been miserable with this terrible reception I get in my apartment. My calls are always dropping and I can NEVER access the internet. It's so frustrating that I'm paying for a service that's not even working. I can't wait until my contract is done because I'm definitely switching to a different company. Sprint, shame on you.

There are no Towers in the Society Hill Area of Philadelphia.. Not sure why would the city of 1.5 million people have gaps of service. Unacceptable!

Poor reception on the 1st floor of my home (100 yr old stone and brick home). 1-2 bars. Second fl reception much better,4 bars and HSPA+ data speeds (approx 3-4 mbps). I work in center city Philadelphia and have excellent coverage in all of center city east and west. Phone is a LG Google Nexus 4. I got very similar results with my previous phone an HTC One X.

T-mobile is the worst they are so bad I don't even know how they still exist. I'm an OTR truck driver so I need my phone to keep in touch with family. The service is so horrible it almost cost me my marriage.

Tmobile customer for 6 years. This is the worst location for service. Called multiple times and got the same response. "we are not planning to make any changes to your local network." the options given to me were to purchase a new device (even though I have a brand new galaxy s3 or find a new provider. These were the exact words of both the representative and the supervisor. My advice, Dont be fooled by there coverage maps.

Sprint is selling LTE phone to customers in Philly and they don't have LTE service here for another year or more. Tried to tell me the phone will work on 3G and please still pay for premium data. Adios Sprint.. Contract is up and I'm going with AT&T
