Verizon

2 Out of 5 (2 stars) | 6th Ave. | Olive Way, Seattle, WA 98101 |

Coverage is very congested downtown. Data times out. Calls drop to 3G instead of LTE. WiFi calls not handing off properly to LTE. Don’t count on service near the convention center during anything major. You’ll see 3 / 4 bars of LTE, but if you can dial out, your call is sure to drop. The experience downtown with Verizon is definitely not worth premium charge.

I used AT&T prepaid with no issues for over a year. From West Seattle to Bellevue to First Hill, calls over 4G were clear and no issue with dropping. The LTE was blazing fast on my iPhone 8+. Even had decent coverage on the 11th floor of my office building downtown.

Verizon is a huge huge JOKE in Puget Sound- period! I can all 4 bars of LTE alright... .but service is still damn too slow! So either data streaming in choked or some other gimmit is in play. Very unfortunate and sad. Seriously contemplating switching back to AT&T!

Just switched to T-Mobil from ATT using an iPhone 8 Plus. I only get the same 2 bars I received from ATT? I am at the top of the hill with no obstructions. Clear view to downtown and the west??

Dropped calls ALL the time, when I can even manage to get service. I’ll be standing next to my entire wall of windows with one bar LTE. Beyond frustrating. Very disappointed with Verizon throughout the city.

I have reamed Verizon a new one about their hideous telephone signal strength here at my lower CapHill home for over two years now. A cursory Verizon cell tower location search lists only 3 towers within 3 miles of my location with the nearest being a whopping 2 miles away (UGH). A similar search for AT&T and T-Mobile from this same location shows at least 20 towers (each) with a few of them within 1 / 4 mile or less. I am located on the 3rd floor of a wood structure building with partial visual views of downtown SEA (Columbia Center etc) and can muster -110dBm signal strength at best on their 4G network (i.e., on a really good day IF I am super lucky and all the stars in the heavens align). I live in the highest population density residential neighborhood in all of SEA with many many cell phone users, yet despite my constant haranging of Verizon (both local and corporate), they feel no incentive / obligation to radically improve their network in this high density use area (really Verizon???) Shame on you! BOTTOM-LINE: All other things being equal, I would recommend avoiding / dumping Verizon if you live anywhere on lower CapHill in SEA.

AT&T

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | 1001 4th Ave., Seattle, WA 98154 |

No internet service for the last two months. I have worked in this building for 3 years. Reception used to be fine. About two months ago I lost the ability to use internet on my phone from this location. My phone works fine elsewhere. This appears to be a trend for AT&T in Downtown Seattle. If you spend a fair amount of time here avoid AT&T. For the record, I have a business phone with service from Verizon and it works fine in the same location.
