no phone call coverage at all at the airport and at my house in Madison. T mobile is a complete fail. AVOID T mobile.

Had AT&T for a long time, never had a problem in wisconsin. Even data in the basement at work only shows 1 bar but it still works fine. Only problem is the price.

Been with US Cell for a long time, 20+ years (both personal and work phones) I've always had good coverage around town and throughout the state.

Reception is poor in most areas of residence despite being in an area that has good elevation (hill top). Guests in home with other services have better reception, so disappointed. Service seems reasonable in most other areas of Madison we work or go to.

Just switched to T-mobile.. and BEWARE that you'd get no to little coverage if you live near somewhere around or near the state st, possibly to the Langdon side as well. It is absolutely ridiculous that you get max of 2 / 5 bars around the campus as well. Shoulda checked some reviews out before..

The Sprint reception quality is very bad. If one gets connected to a call one is lucky. If the telephone conversation is audible then one is luckier. Data quality is worst. Their coverage map shows the location as 4G LTE highest grade but don't even get 3G coverage. Its as good as not having a phone service. I moved here this week.The phone worked excellent in Boston and whole of MA earlier.

Have iphone 5. Rarely had dropped calls until a month or two ago. Daily challenge to have a conversation without hearing "you're breaking up" or to get cut off altogether. VERY unsatisfied with Verizon. What happened? Are they decreasing the signal strength so they can push the signal booster for $250-$300? This is ridiculous. Verizon has not been helpful. Just say the cell service must be bad on my street because its good on the west side. Not according to these reviews! Then why Was the signal so good in the past with few if any dropped calls?

Terrible service. Inside the house or out in the yard, dropped calls, terrible reception / sound quality. The quality is not much better at my office in the heart of campus. Does ANY carrier provide average or better service on campus and near east?
