signal often weak, especially in the afternoon. today down to one bar. I will probably change carriers since the cell service can be very embarrassing on business calls.

I live in a multifamily building on Park St.in Coolidge Corner. Big windows but AT&T reception in the apartment is terrible and only slightly better outside on the balcony. In the building hallways and lobby there is little to no reception at all. I have a second phone with Google Fi (T Mobile, Sprint) and it will become my main phone very soon when I cancel ATT!

Can only get reception in the most peripheral part of the hospital on AT&T had to switch providers to Verizon, the only one that works in this hospital, a problem as I am a resident!

I never get GPS anymore. Waze is constantly seeking GPS. Calls constantly drop and I have an AT&T microcell in my house! 2 bars is a norm. My husband has Verizon and it's perfectly fine.

Before I moved into this apartment, I heard there would be terrible reception. I have ATT on my personal cell and Verizon on my work mobile. Verizon always had 2-3 bars whereas my ATT cell has 1-2 bars, occasionally 3 bars when I'm lucky. Verizon calls are OK - they don't go in / out like ATT, but the calls do drop frequently. I've purchased a Bluetooth so I don't accidentally move while talking on the phone as the service is finicky. Customer service is good for the business plan. Verizon ships out new phones overnight and help you out in anyway possible. Overall, fairly reliable service, but wish the signal were stronger in my apartment. Currently, using wifi calling to make / receive calls.

Have always had terrible coverage in my Kendall Sq apartment with ATT. Usually use my work mobile (Verizon) which also has poor coverage, but slightly better. ATT has awful cell service in Kendall Sq - 1-2 bars of service, sometimes only 4G is available (not LTE). Usually, calls are spotty and go in / out and consistently drop. I've reset network settings, had ATT reset tower, etc. They even sent me a microcell but none work. Got a text late Jan 2017 saying they made changes to the network in Boston, but it made getting any connection even worse! Going to switch to another network.

Lived in this same apartment for 2 years and never had a problem with AT&T reception. In the last month, suddenly calls are completely inaudible, but only during the day. Night calls are not a problem. My room-mate has Verizon and has a strong signal all day long. Wondering if it has anything to do with new construction of tall buildings in Boston? The only AT&T tower (according to this web site's map) is on the other side of the river, behind several new tall buildings.

We've been using ATT here for 15+ years. It's never been great but all of a sudden it's terrible - can't complete even a short conversation without the call being dropped. Inside / outside house and in neighborhood - doesn't matter - signal is awful. Verizon phones appear to work fine. WTF?!

Expensive service and poor signal strength especially when streaming video via the AT&T mobile hotspot.
