1 Out of 5 (1 star) | 5th St. Downtown , Austin, TX 78703 |

Lived in Austin a year and half and have never had more than 2 bars with AT&T. Not sure why the reception is so bad in a major city. I've had AT&T for 13 years and only have had an issue in Austin. Never an issue in Tennessee or North Carolina

Worst signal ever. I can't call from this place or any place I can imagine. If I am in emergency, I can't call. Always a single bar is visible but it just doesn't work. T-Mobile provides unlimited data which I took and it never works. There wasn't a single time when I was able to use my data outside of home.

Jumbled voice calling. Usually it's on the other end and I can hear them okay. I've rebooted, reset, and gotten a new SIM card. No change. I really liked the idea of unlimited data because I occasionally went over, so I switched a month ago from ATT after 10 years. I bought a new phone and almost feel cheated now.

One bar or no service and that is with a Microcell. Last March the Microcell worked great but after 5 or 6 months it is very inconsistent. I am in the process of finding another carrier. Once I find one that can provide service, I will move my company as well. Actually, AT&T rep at 183 and Cap of TX suggested I look for another source because they could not help me in this area. Only one tower on Anderson Mill Rd.

Sprint

2 Out of 5 (2 stars) | Bee Cave Rd.& East of 71, Austin, TX 78738 |

Been with Sprint for 10+ years after having AT&T (dropped too many calls). Recently Sprint has been off their game and customer service has got to be the worst I've dealt with by far! Call them only be told they will do something and they don't, like fix a billing error adjustment or call me back to confirm it has taken place. I think they will tell you anything to get you off the phone however they don't follow through on their end. Even if they give a confirmation number and note the issue - nothing is done and have to call them back again and again. Waste of everyone's time. When you call back they have a record of previous call but nothing done... 3 months in-a-row! Goodbye Sprint...

Signal strength is woefully inadequate and inconsistent. Not sure if any carrier is better but ATT in NYC was great. Now that we moved to Bee Cave area, it's been unbelievably disappointing and frustrating. I even bought the stupid ATT Microcell for $150 which reflects 5 bars on my phone but the signal quality is very poor. Ugggg. #firstworldproblems

One bar most of the time. Periodically no service at all. All hours of day and night. Seems to be getting worse.

2 Out of 5 (2 stars) | South Congress, Austin, TX 78704 |

I moved here about a year ago from DC and AT&T was the best provider in that area, when we got here 13 months ago AT&T seemed fine, however something has been going on with their coverage in the last few months, we've noticed a incredible increase of dropped and missed calls and slow downloads. I travel around Austin a lot for work and in the last week I've been paying close attention to my signal strength and 3 bars seems to be the average around town, however 2bars is not uncommon. It's gotten so poor that we are looking to switch careers.
