Verizon

3 Out of 5 (3 stars) | Rapids Airport | 1st St., Wisconsin Rapids, WI 54494 |

No problems at all with phone coverage. Data coverage seems to vary. I don't know if it's weather related or what but some days my VZ wireless speed is very good and others it's worse than dial up.

Bars of reception are phone dependent(one phone can get 4 bars and another in the same spot 2)-but that said-in the last year I have had Alltel, Element, Cellcom and Verizon. Best reception Verizon then Cellcom and Alletel and Element were about the same. Cellcom hands down best customer service.

Just signed with Sprit after finally dumping Element and that was like jumping from the fire into the frying pan. We have zero reception at our house. Since Element can't seem to service their customers, I think our only other option is US Cellular - disappointing :(

No dropped calls, always have service in my house. Also, good service in surrounding areas: Nekoosa, Vesper, Rudolph, Plainfield / Bancroft area. Great customer service, no hidden charges.

Rarely, if ever, have a problem with reception in or outside our home. No dropped calls from here. I do update my phone for new towers periodically.

Never get AT&T for this area. They blow, most dorpped calls ever. I get reception at home but not at my friends house or even at wal-mart. I use to be with US Cellular back in 2002 they were ok. Haven't tried Alltel but my friend told me that they were ok. The best server i've had so far was verizon. It worked basically everywhere where I went except in the booneys. Not a single dropped call like at&t. It really comes down to where you live and where you travel too. Not one specific company will give you perfect reception everywhere. And maybe you just live too far out in the booneys to get any reception of any sort. If thats the case stick to a regular phone.

1 bar reception, always getting dropped calls here and on george road and seneca rd. Seems most Providers in the area are lacking in cell towers. May change providers to see if Alltel is worth the try.

In town, while visitiing, I get great reception. Normally 4-5 bars. However, when driving between Rapids and Plainfield, I alway loose signal from between the Hwy. 73 / Nekoosa turn off to within about a mile of the Hwy. 73 / I39 intersection. Along I39 and also in town, the signal is great.

Perfect Recption here! If you live in Wisconsin Rapids Alltel is the way to go, i've tried Sprint and have gotten very little service in this town with them.

Good service- full reception all over the center of town. On the outskirts of town I get only about 2 bars, but I can still call it still sounds great. I've had no problem with customer service either. My external display on my old phone broke, I brought it in to the W. Rapids Alltel Store and they gave me a brand new phone of the same model for no cost.

Alltel is a horrible company. No service at home or the surrounding area though it's "a sure thing". Spontaneous "hidden charges" appear on the bill. Customer service is HORRIBLE. Every billing cycle I have to call them to have them remove charges that aren't supposed to be there; they try and sneak them in. Definitely recommend going with a different company...

Forget T-Mobile here. No reception and plenty of problems returning a phone that was recommended by T-Mobile for our zip code.
