1 Out of 5 (1 star) | The Summit, Columbia, SC 29229 |

Seems like it gotten worse in the past few months. dMb greater than 115 most of the time. Choppy conversations and constantly saying "can you hear me now" is embarrassing. Great reception at Clemson and Summit Parkway. Guess in an emergency, I'll have to get in the car and drive up the road! Now I wish I hadn't removed my land- line.

Plan is too price for 3 GB Data and 3 phones $246 / mo! I'm going elsewhere if I can find reception on this low elevation street from a different service provider.

The reception is very spotty in the NE of Cola. It can go from full bars to no service just by turning down a street. I have multiple problems trying to get service inside my house even though T-mobile's coverage maps says it's "satisfactory", a rep told me that satisfactory service on the coverage map is actually "challenging". I think they may have antennas on two towers out here. One is near Hardscrabble and Clemson. The other is somewhere in the lake carolina area. Verizon on the other hand has a whopping tower on Lee Road.

T-Mobile is most certainly offering better data service in this area than Verizon. T-Mobile's HSPA+ blows Verizon's LTE out of the water. Verizon LTE is averaging 6-8Mbps, while T-Mobile HSPA+ (not even LTE) is averaging 11-15Mbps. [Tests were performed with a Motorola G (t-mobile) and a Motorola X (verizon)]. Why pay 20% more for geographic coverage you use 0.1% of the time--especially when it's slower? For a family of 4, is it worth the extra $500-$1000 a year to have great service on your Labor Day weekend camping trip?

Great and very fast 4G LTE service. Have ran speedtests and the 4G LTE is much faster it seems than ATT or Verizon.

Have had Verizon for over 10 years. Their pricing is ridiculous but I have stayed with them because the service is fantastic everywhere I have been: Northern Wisconsin, (lower) UP, Chicago, Indiana, Atlanta, and Columbia, SC. My current service is still great. Unfortunately I can no longer afford such high pricing and will probably switch carriers within the next few months.

I have always had spotty reception at home but in the last 2 months its gotten twice as bad. Most of my texts want go through even with 3 bars. I have been with Sprint for 10 years, its time to move on.

I have been living in the same house for almost three years with great reception. Recently, I have been getting poor receptions. My phone works fine everywhere else in Columbia. AT&T has been giving me the run around about this issue.
