4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | Main St.Malden | Main and Forest St., Malden, MA 02148 |

I rarely have any problem with AT&T in around Boston. There are some spots where the data is slow i.e. Oak Grove station Malden. I was with T-Mobile and then Sprint for years and was so used to having a crappy indoor and around door service but now that I have AT&T I pay more I know but I don't care I need service in the city and I need service outside the city so Sprint and T-Mobile will never work for me at least in the short term. T-Mobile can rant and rave about their data speeds in the city but when you have AT&T you get great coverage over a vast area. consistency consistency consistency in great speeds to me that's worth the extra 15 bucks a month

Very very poor reception in the apartment. Always drop a call. If you are thinking to move to the apartment at Cambridgepark Dr, check wireless reception in your room first. I got only one bar of 3G.

T-Mobile

4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | Airport - MBTA, Boston, MA 02128 |

Great coverage. I never lose signal within the city limits. Once I go outside the metropolitan area, it gets spotty. T-Mobile is #1 for Boston. I had Verizon and constantly had no cell service. For the price, T-Mobile is fair for its areas of coverage and is getting better when it comes to improving Data speeds.

I have a Tracfone which is not the problem. I can not get any reception in Revere on the McClellan High or Lee Burbank Hwy. (route 1A) and areas at Logan Airport. I have AT and T.

Sprint

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Huntington Ave. Behind the Prudential Building, Boston, MA 02115 |

I live right near the corner of West Newton and St. Botolph street... Sprint telephone and internet coverage was better before they went 4G LTE. When they were 3G I had decent phone and internet service. Up until I got rid of them in September I did not. I simply had no phone service or internet on St. Botolph at all. Also right behind the Prudential building on Huntington Ave and around the Christian Science Center there was is spotty or no service either. I work in downtown Boston financial district. There are many places in downtown Boston where you have no phone service, no internet service and what service you do have is very spotty. I do contract work and I can't begin to tell you how much money I lost due to missed phone calls. I contacted Sprint many times and after finally crawling my way to a higher level of tech support I was told OUTRITE its as good as its gonna get. "Boston's market has been upgraded and until we get other cities up to 4G this is what where we are." I had four lines and a tablet with Sprint. I disconnected all of my services with Sprint. 2 of them were a bit of a battle due to contract commitments. I managed to get out of those commitments and early termination fees by explaining to them they are not providing me with a usable service so what would make me want to stay with them? At first it didn't work but I went up the level of management and finally they get sick of me. I guess that's what it takes. The representatives and management seem to take this in stride.it sounds like they hear this all the time. I jumped over to Verizon as much as I didn't want to but at least I'm able to use my phone and Internet now. I need to be connected at all times. I couldn't afford to be a Sprint customer anymore.

Sprint

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | St. Clement's Church | Warner St.& Boston Ave., Medford, MA 02155 |

Consistently only 1 bar for about 18 months (2013 to 2014). Many dropped calls. Multiple conversations with Sprint. I've been a customer for 15 years, but these past two years my connection at home is awful. I even had them replace my phone, to make sure it wasn't an equipment failure on my end. It' still the same bad reception. Meanwhile the tower is literally one block from my home. Overall I like Sprint, but not being able to use my iPhone for calls at home is both perplexing and frustrating.

AT&T

1 Out of 5 (1 star) | Rt. 16 | Rt 28, Medford, MA 02155 |

AT&T reception is typically disastrous. Usually 2-3 bars but that means nothing. Data is 80-90% ok but that's because of comcast wireless modem. I ask many people to text instead of call since it's ok with AT&T. I can do a text conversation fine. Of like 50+ calls per week, I get about 15 dropped calls per week. Maybe 10-15 calls / week never get through with a ring (straight to voicemail or missed). About 30-50% of calls, people are asking me if I am there and they say must be their phone but I mention I have poor service from AT&T. Maybe 75% of those calls get dropped, so almost half my calls get dropped. It's typical I'll have to make 3-4 calls to continue a 5-6 minute conversation. With customer service, I always mention to agents my cell phone so they can call me when my call gets cut off. So some of them will call back. Even AT&T customer service gets dropped frequently. At least their personnel have been very helpful (they researched my issue and notes even on technical customer service calls they can't reach me) and I get lots of freebies since they admitted there is lots of problems they cannot fix with my cell phone. But they cannot solve technical issues. And sadly I'm near a major urban like intersection with no "solid" buildings. My old iPhone 3 had good reception but the iPhone 4 was terrible.
