1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Just South of Northgate Mall on 1st Ave.N.E. | Between 85th and 92nd, Seattle, WA 98115 |

I never get more than 2 bars and most of the time it's only one bar.

4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | Westlake | Harrison, Seattle, WA 98109 |

Still get pretty good reception with ATT but am mostly on wifi around here at work in SLU. Live in Ballard and get pretty good coverage there too. I have a iphone 4s so data download is slow but can't tell if it's phone or ATT since I can only get 3G. Don't have much coverage once I get into the mountains, but pretty sure on one does. My friend with Verizon and iphone 6s loses coverage going to Crystal Mountain or Stevens Pass as well.

Metro PCS has a strong signal in upper Des Moines. Much better than Verizon.

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Phinney Ridge | Woodland Park Zoo, Seattle, WA 98103 |

I am so sad to leave TING, which has the best customer service and the best billing practices, but they use SPRINT towers for their coverage and that really sucks. I rarely have service in my home on Phinney Ridge, never at work and even round about town I am often cut-off mid-conversation for no apparent reason. Also, this summer, when I was driving cross-country, I had NO bars between St. Paul Minnesota and Coeur d'Alene Idaho, so the phone would have been no use to me if I was stuck on the roadside and needed to call AAA. Couldn't even receive texts. No bars for days. What's up with that. I am switching to AT&T even though I am already so mad about their abusive customer service practices. I can't wait for TING to improve their phone service so I can go back to them! TING dump SPRINT!

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Des Moines Memorial Drive; 2blocks South of Thrif | 124th and DMD, Seattle, WA 98168 |

I get in-and-out-service at my place, the only place I can actually make calls is being up against my front window facing East. Could be the airplane flight path or the brick / concrete building that's causing my trouble but either way... I basically have NO SERVICE.

Verizon

4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | Aurora Ave.N | 92nd St., Seattle, WA 98103 |

I am always the one with service in this area because all of my friends have T-Mobile or Sprint. They don't get service. I do. The only time I have to go without it was when we go camping into the backwoods or out on the islands, which I find acceptable and, frankly, satisfying.

In June, service was fine. Now it's one bar and useless. Thank God for office wifi.

2 Out of 5 (2 stars) | Ali Ave.SW | Admiral Way, Seattle, WA 98116 |

Consistently bad coverage in our neighborhood, maybe the hill blocks signal to the west side of Alki, but I can get 0-4 bars, (changes constantly) even while sitting still.

T-Mobile

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Near Garfield High School | 25th and Alder, Seattle, WA 98122 |

Often says "no service," even though we can see cell towers out our window. Even wi-fi calls are hit and miss, despite the fact that our modem is 10 feet or less away. Can go from having signal to suddenly no signal when sitting on the couch without moving. When we can make calls, they are constantly dropped and / or often garbled, which really stinks considering both my wife and I use our phones for work. Have talked to T-Mobile about the problem, replaced our phones, etc. but finally gave up when no help or solution after 6 months of working on the problem. Now just waiting out our contract so we can switch!

0 Out of 5 (0 stars) | Downtown, Seattle, WA 98101 |

I have yet to have a good enough data connection to post to snapchat or load posts from other social media sites even when my phone says I have a full LTE signal. I'm completely reliant on wi-fi for most data using activities.
