1 Out of 5 (1 star) | 1000 East 5th St. | San Marcos, Austin, TX 78702 |

AT&T: Horrible cellular signal. Very very difficult for both parties on each end of the cellular phone connection to understand each other. I am in a building with thick concrete walls, but have big glass windows and a balcony. The reception gets only a little better when I stand near a window or on the balcony. No other buildings surround my building, (On top of that my AT&T 4G data plan is effectively 3G anywhere I go in Austin. )

Never had a problem with Sprint until I moved to South Austin. Now it is problem problem problem. Just nothing but problems. Poor reception, dropped calls, missed calls, inability to make calls, calls going straight to voicemail, texts not working. It's terrible. And so is the customer service.

After complaining for years AT&T service is still very poor in Bee Cave / Lakeway area. Very hard when you cannot even call your kids cell phone a few housed away or even at the high school. Our neighbors keep land lines as to just keep in contact - yes wifi word great when your in your house ! But asking neighbors for access to wifi in order so you can see the game stats seems nuts to me.. I'm switching all 5 of our lines next year when we come of plan...

0 Out of 5 (0 stars) | Riata Trace Pkwy., Austin, TX 78727 |

Absolutely abysmal reception in the Riata area. No cell phone network at all, and naturally no internet network. Not just inside buildings... It's endemic to both inside and outside all buildings. The whole area of 110 acres is practically a black spot for T-Mobile coverage; I have to migrate my number to AT&T, which has full coverage in that area.

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Spyglass Neighborhood and Downtown Austin, Austin, TX 78746 |

I have had AT&T for 5 years in Austin, TX. The quality of coverage has gotten worse. Even on a new retail-packaged phone, I only get 1 bar in most of of the city, 2 sometimes, and rarely 3 or more. I am often downtown, in South Austin, or in the Spyglass / Zilker area. Coverage is horrible all-around.

Lived downtown for the last 3 years and have had 2 different phones in that time and both consistently have had weak signal outside and barely working while inside. I never ask friends to do a speed test in front of me or it makes me want to cry. You would think a tech savvy place like Austin would have better cell service.
