There will be no Verizon coverage here for the foreseeable future so your only choice is AT&T and US Cellular. Verizon coverage is provided by US Cellular which is 1X Extended network and is absolutely useless for internet use.

AT&T had service last year but it continues to go downhill as time goes by. I heard they were in town a few weeks ago but the service is still horrible! What gives?

I have nTelos service which was just bought out by Sprint / Shentel. I pay $35 per line under the original nTelos contract. Shentel is pushing for a new Sprint contract now, it will start at $40 at least. I get pretty good service in Buckhannon, Weston, Elkins and Clarksburg. There are some dead areas on Rt 20 especially thru Peeltree to Romines Mills at Rt 57 / 20 intersection. I had U.S. Cellular before with the same dead areas. Reception in Teter is very spotty with certain areas people stop at for service.

After heading east on Rt 33 from I-79, my signal strength went to one 'circle' on my iphone. I use my phone to Geocache and it was worthless the entire trip through Upsher County. Amazing that Verizon doesn't have any signal in / around a college town! My husband has service through TracPhone and had 4-5 bars signal strength everywhere! Grrrr. I picked Verizon because I was told it had the best coverage in North Central WV (I live in Clarksburg), but in traveling off the interstate I have found USCellular and AT&T (Net10 and Tracphone service as well) to have much better signal strength than Verizon. Verizon hasn't proven to be a whole lot better than when I had Sprint, sadly. Unhappily locked into contract for another 1.5 years...

Have had service with CellOne for years. AT&T bought out CellOne. Good coverage up until one month ago. First the local store told us that the telephone company was installing digital lines and their connections to the wireless was our trouble of having no service. NOW the same store tells us that we have no service because AT&T is upgrading to 4G. We still have no useable service. Our phones may ring twice and cut off. If you do make a connection it drops and you can no longer make or recieve a call. Our phones show 5 bars of signal but you can not use it at all. It has been this way for over a month now as of November 21, 2012. AT&T sucks ! Other people who have US Cellular, Nextel, or something else are making and recieving calls. AT&T can text and that is all.

Used to have full coverage inside walmart and lowes, now no coverage in town at all. Have to drive out of town for any signal at all.

Have had US Cellular for several years. There are spotty areas of reception. Usually calls fail or are dropped although there are one or two "hotspots" where people can stop and make calls.

I have really good service here in buckhannon. Im in motown quite often and have never had a problem with Sprint service. For those of you with Sprint who live outside of town Sprint makes something called an Airave it works off of your hi speed internet and gives you perfect cell service inside your home.

Reception around Main St.is iffy even though it's within 2 or 3 miles of a major interstate, but if you think that's annoying try going more than 10 miles away from Main Street. Forget having a crucial lifeline if you get attacked by bears in the woods 20 miles away from West Virginia Wesleyan College's campus. You won't have even a dot of service, let alone a full bar. At least Verizon's site didn't lie this time -- they don't even pretend to cover the Buckhannon area.

3-5 bars inside my house at all times. Coverage in Buckhannon is awesome through Sprint.
