2 Out of 5 (2 stars) | Club Dr.Near Langhorne Rd.Business 501, Lynchburg, VA 24503 |

We have found Verizon to be a reliable provider in Central Virginia but the reception at our house is not very good. We get 2 - 3 bars signal strength. Our phones are Samsung Galaxy S4. Signal changes from 3G to 4G often. Wish Verizon would place a cell site at one of the hospitals.

The nearest Sprint tower is in prospect Va... out past Appomattox..They have been promising 4G since the Hero came out 5 years ago. I HAVE LOST ALL FAITH IN SPRINT. customer service stinks.

Only 1 bar in our facility get 1 star for my review. The AirRave does not boost signal despite several calls I made to their Tier II Tech Support people. I get 1 bar reception off Perrowville Rd and Hooper Rd. (24551) in Forest and also in the entire Wildwood Neighborhood in the New London area has below 2 bar reception for me.

Reception along Greenview Dr, and Timberlake from 460 to Fort Ave is exceptional. 4 and 5 bars the whole way. 460 from Candlers Mountain to the Timberlake exit is the same way

I have been with Sprint for almost 6 years and have had incredible service. I have an iPhone 4S and have been pleased. It would be nice to see some Sprint towers in the area rather than those from Shentel. I get great service throughout town, including LU. There are a couple of areas inside of Demoss Hall that have somehow become spotty, but it is not a deal killer. Sprint is not gouging the consumer like that of AT&T and Verizon. These two companies are out of touch with the current economic state of our nation and I put them on par with cable TV and gas rate hikes.

Our house has both a Verizon phone and a T-Mobile phone and I do not see any difference between the two. IE - where I lose coverage with one I also have with the other.

I have been waiting for 4g for two years, with Sprint now leaving wimax for lte I may try another service. I have been paying sprints $10 charge for 4g and they have not lived up to their end of the deal. But somehow I get a 4g signal in my bedroom and nowhere else in Lynchburg... .weird.

I have been very happy with T-Mobile since I have been using them for the past month or so. I get 4-g coverage almost everywhere over town. Forest is a less, and out in Gladys is less as well, but I have been very happy with them.

Verizon

4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | Downtown Lynchburg, Lynchburg, VA 24504 |

I think as of right now, Verizon has the best reception in the general area... I wish others would improve. I used to have AT&T and had to leave them.. I was one of the many people who had to leave their phone on the windowsill when I got home just to get barely 1 bar of coverage. I switched to Straighttalk (Verizon) and had great coverage all over town and in buildings... I never worried about a signal, but Straighttalk is not a very good wireless company, and I left them after a long time for T-Mobile. I have been very happy with T-mobile, and their coverage is almost as good as Verizon.

I have had AT&T for several years now and it works great in Lynchburg. EPIC SIGNAL! They keep adding towers in my area, my signal keeps getting better, and having the 3G is awesome! Not to mention their 3G is way faster than the competition, plus that speed is being upgraded as well, and then 4G is coming. Assuming all things stay the same, I will never switch!

Horrible to non-existant AT&T reception in my house. If I'm lucky and I go outside and stand in my driveway, sometimes I get 1 bar, enough to make a quick call. Totally unacceptable! I work from home and am constantly missing calls. I also teach at Lynchburg College and the entire campus is a dead zone for AT&T - NO service at all. I'm getting out of this contract a.s.a.p.

Very poor coverage. I moved to the area in July 2010 and recently saw articles about "3G popping up on people's phones downtown," but I still struggle with 1-0 bars. I don't known how long I can hold out before switching providers...

Love T-mobile's coverage in lynchburg. It has gotten significantly better in the year I've lived here. T-Mobile usually drags its feet on rolling out 3G coverage, but the lone wolf in this case is AT&T. Upgrading next week and I'm sticking with T-Mobile because of their 3G coverage maps. Looks good!

I would suggest getting Verizon. I get 3-5 bars in my boyfriend's apt. I havent had any problems with Verizon in this area. Ive been to Charlottesville, va and my phone has roamed but I got reception no matter what. Just couldnt open up Pix messages or videos but could text.

This entire afluent community gets barely one bar of service. There are a few hundred students and teachers alone who'd switch to AT&T if the service would improve. I've been looking into repeaters for at least one dorm... The signal is inexcusible and is a saftey hazard.
