While I usually have 5 bars, I have rated the reception poor because of the poor call quality I receive at this location. It is my office, which is pretty high up in the Cira Centre. While my phone almost always shows full strength signal, it is very difficult to reliably make or receive calls. On many calls, the voice breaks up and at other times, I have trouble getting a call to go through. Most problems seem to be correlated with lunch time and the 4 pm - 6 pm. Definitely frustrating to not be able to reliably use my cell phone at the office.Was this review helpful to you?
VZW is slightly weak in this area, but even though I'm only showing 2 bars the quality is great and never lose reception outside. When inside some buildings the signal becomes iffy. (0-1 bar). Inside a residence though, I see a slight improvement (bar wise) to 2 bars. But again the sound quality is equal to when my phone has full bars. So, overall no complaints except for high prices!Was this review helpful to you?
Overall Verizon IS the best. However, this particualr area is a weak spot on VZW's coverage area. Good reception outside and iffy signal inside, but even so rarely drop a call and call quality better than 5 bars with AT&T.Was this review helpful to you?
Great outdoor reception, Both 3G and 1X. Indoor reception depending on the building drops down to 1 bar but typically I'm able to hold onto the call even in the oldest of buildings all around the city.Was this review helpful to you?
I constantly get the message "Emergency Calls only" when I'm in the house because the reception is so bad. The call quality is horrible too and I often have to walk outside for the other party to hear. I moved here from Ohio and had Cellular One coverage before they were bought out by AT&T. The day my service was taken over by AT&T, my service suffered and it seems to still suffer in Lansdowne.Was this review helpful to you?
Drops just about every call in the house, nearby cannot make or receive calls in certain "pockets" of Havertown. Verizon did just let us out of our contracts though because it is a "known" problem area so *kudos* to the customer service department!Was this review helpful to you?
I have never had any problems with Sprint in this neighborhodd or my building. I am considering in switching to AT&T, but not sure if my service will be worse or better.Was this review helpful to you?
Never had good reception in or around my own home even after learning of new towers in drexel hill area despite being a loyal customer to Aye tee and tee for the past 7 years. Only response I've always heard before even getting a word out about service is we don't guarantee service in buildings, but yet any other persons house or business dwelling I'm in (except sublevel) I can make and receive calls with near perfect signal clarity. My fingers are just waiting til my old age when they get arthritis so not hopefully have to substitute SMS for a simple phone conversation! Thank You Technology, Your awesome.Was this review helpful to you?
I have been ill since the advent of wireless technology, especially so since the Telecommunications Act of 1996 was passed and the number of towers increased exponentially. I urge you to google the Bioinitiative Report. My pets were dying, my ex-husband developed a brain tumor, my sister's cat developed a spinal cord tumor. These signals are lethal! I can't believe how many of you are complaining that there aren't enough towers!Was this review helpful to you?
