We were in Seoul South Korea for the past 10 years and no we are not Korea or any other nationality. Born and raised here for over 20 years. While in Seoul, we NEVER had any connection problems with android cell phones and iPhones, Samsung, etc. basically every phone we used or any company we chose also. However, these U.S. companies here want to use the cheapest towers and low rated equipment! AT&T has THE WORST reception and for the four of us as a family have experienced the WORST dropped calls rate of all the available carriers. based upon our friends and family here testimonies to us. I can call my wife right next to me to see how long it takes for her cell phone to ring and it is terrible. It is poor service here among all the carriers, but AT&T is the absolute worst in our experiences over the past couple of weeks as we just arrived to Huntsville. We are going to drop AT&T and give them our complaint too. The type of cell phone is irrelevant... it has to do with a lack of towers and the ones they do have are those very cheaply made towers to try and save money. All the carriers are doing this to save money by the way. Not like this in South Korea.

Voice works OK. Forget about data. It's supposed to be 2G but nothing will load. Data is completely unusable until you get close enough to pick up 4G in Huntsville.

I have been a 'Faithful Sprint Customer' for more than 10 years now. I have never experienced the poor service issues I am experiencing today. Not sure what they are doing, but paying for phone service every month, and not getting anything in return is totally unexceptable! Not sure how much longer I can do this. Please get it together Sprint. All my Verizon family members are making fun of me. I'm counting on you. Sincere Regards,

Verizon

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Clements Area, West Limestone Co., on Tenn River, Athens, AL 35611 |

Verizon mobile broadband and cell are TERRIBLE! Lucky to get one bar. Is there only one Verizon cell tower for all of Limestone County? Why will Verizon not install more cell towers? It's almost impossible to send texts and the internet using the USB 760 with an external parabolic antenna is awful. Many times it is like using dialup. We cannot get Charter internet and refuse to use the satellite internet.

This is a recent event since 4G LTE was much better aobut 3 months ago. Bandwidth tests on 8 Nov 2013 show download speed of 0.52 Mbps and upload speed of 0.37 Mbps. Very dismal for 4G LTE. From zip code 35758 I measured 40.84 Mbps download and 16.86 Mbps upload. This is ~12 miles away from zip code 35808.

Poor reception, dropped calls. No matter where I call from, the service is very poor. No one can hear me unless I use Speaker Phone and it still breaks up into partial syllables. AT&T is awful.

Our phone service with T-Mobile is fine, but we CANNOT get data coverage at our house. We are VERY frustrated with data service with T-Mobile and are looking to change. We have also had to return two phones that were DUDS!

Rarely get signal above 2 bars and when I do I am near a window. I called to let AT&T know how terrible the coverage is but they assured me that the two towers in our area were getting upgraded in the next two weeks. That was about 6 weeks ago and still no change.

I maybe get 1 bar 30% of the time. The rest of the time inside my house or walking through my neighborhood all I see is "No Service" indicating on my iPhone. I also have an iPhone for work (service through Verizon) and it always works. Like others just waiting for my AT&T contract to end. AT&T has been promising for 2 years that there are 2 new towers going up near me, but still nothing! I agree - AT&T is horrible. Someone should be a class action lawsuit against them!

The coverage in my area is poor. Although I have to admit that it is getting better. I use to drop calls all the time, but now I can get some calls through on one bar. I think one bar is ridiculous. Since you have unlimited data on Sprint having one bar doesn't come in handy, because its data roaming or we have 3G with one bar which loads very slow. They said that they are testing 4G / 4G LTE down here. I don't get the point of testing, why can't we just get it. I have full bars every now and then, only on major roads or major places such as the interstate or Madison square mall. Even in the Sprint store which of course they have hammers which allow your phone to show full bars. Tell me if the happen to help you.

I've had T-Mobile for years, and yes, there are times I've had dropped calls, but what cell carrier hasn't. All in all it's been great service with few problems such as dropped calls or no reception.

Sprint has almost no coverage while in my house. I have to use a Sprint femtocell in order to have any type of coverage. With all the people I know that have Sprint in this area, you would think they would increase their coverage.

Bad coverage over the course of an hour. Over multiple tests, typically 90 kb / s down, 70 kb / s up. Vague memory that it's been better in the past, but no specifics.
