I have had Verizon for 14 years and never had such terrible signal. I just moved over here and have virtually no cellular data and very limited signal to make calls and send SMS messages. Several time before moving here, while driving on Red River I’ve completely lost all signal to my phone. This area is like a black hole for cell signal.

I have had Verizon for years, but my service has become so inconsistent I’m going to have to switch. They claim that I am simply deprioritized at times, but it is so frequent that I am paying to only be able to use my device 50% of the time. I truelly believe that they keep adding users but have not increased their bandwidth and created multiple unlimited tiers last year to make more money while creating a system where they do not have to invest in additional infrastructure

Absolutely terrible cell service. Not only that they are dishonest. My phone shows '4 bars of LTE' but I can't even open a web browser. This kind of thing is typical for Sprint. They are not even on par with the Cricket / Boost mobile type companies. I've been with them for more than 5 years and the service has only gotten worse.

I have one plc in my entire home people can hear me! I have been with Verizon five years. Customer service is excellent. I have a Samsung s8 I am still paying on. However I can't talk at home or taking a walk! Isn't that the original purpose of a cell phone?

Both my personal cell (iPhone 7) and business phone Samsung are maybe 1 to 2 bars and dropped calls are frequent. Used to be good reception here but has gotten worse over the past year or so.

Need a booster for any service at all. Can't drive down the street without a disconnection. I can't believe I still have this pathetic service. 10 years and never has improved.

I never have more than three bars, typically two. Internet often times out and it's always slow. Moved here from DFW where I never had an issue. For being a tech hub I can't figure out why AT&T here sucks so bad.

1 bar at home hear just 2-3 miles from downtown. Can drive within 78704 for miles and never get a consistent data connection. Very frustrating when using apps that rely on the data connection. Had Verizon previously and it was much better in this same zip code.
