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?!

My phone service in my apartment use to be perfectly great. But then out of the blue one day, every call I made, the person says Im breaking up and they cant hear me. Sometimes if I dont move around at all, its acceptable, but its never a sure thing. On my porch its better, but its zero degrees out!

Never more than one bar. No one can hear me no matter where I am in the house. It's better on the porches but not always great. I want to get rid of my land line but with Verizon's lousy service i'm stuck... ... maybe that is their intention!

Generally speaking service is good in Malden. when you head down forest street toward the intersection of Lebanon street the signal gets weak.I never lose my signal or drop a call,but the speed is poor... about 2 mbps or less.Pandora plays just fine. the only other place that the service is slow is oak grove T. tried to call an Uber cab one night, I couldn't muster up enough bandwidth to connect standing on the bus platform.
