0 Out of 5 (0 stars) | Downtown Austin, San , Austin, TX 78701 |

AT&T voice totally unreliable from my 7th floor downtown office. Outgoing calls fail about 50% of time, incoming unintelligible or going straight to vmail. Happening on several other phones in my office, all models. AT&T admits that its overcapacity on voice in this area, has done nothing to fix it, happy for us to continue to pay for no service.

Inside my home near Barton Creek I rarely get 2 bars but usually only 1 and calls drop 90% of the time before conversation ends. Verizon offers to sell me an extender for $150 with no guarantee it will help. They are overpriced as it is and they should be responsible for poor service. The maps they use to sell service shows I should get strong service. I believe they are using deceptive trade practices.

Verizon is now terrible in Northeast Austin. I left Sprint when their tower went badly out of tune and remained so, from then on. Now, it appears Verizon is having the same issue. There are no tower climbers based in Austin, and they are in short supply around the country. There is no national certifying body for the profession. "Can you hear me, now?" "HELL NO!"

Poor to no reception. Looking for other consumers who do have good service and who is the carrier. There has got to be one company who has cell service out here. My family tells me that no service is due to my android. (They all have iPhones). Looking for answers!

I've had issues with voice or audio cutting out multiple times on every call I make from the Shady Hollow area. Data is also slow.

Even with a personal cell booster in my home, still having calls dropped all the time. I'm ready to switch carriers.

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Mopac at 360, Steck, Parmer, Etc. | On Ramp Mopac Northbound Near Duval, Austin, TX 78731 |

I commute from Northwest Hills to approximately I-35 at Parmer. If I start a conversation in my driveway, it never fails to drop 4 times on my route. It seems to be getting worse every month or so. More frequent cutting out and altogether dropped calls. I feel like I am talking on my 1996 StarTac flip phone (with 1996 cell coverage) instead of a modern iPhone.
