Moved here 4 years ago. Verizon cell reception has been no more than 2 bars, often just 1 bar. Very disappointed but concerned that other carriers might be no better.

10.24.2020 AT&T cellular reception was good about 2 years ago and now we're lucky if yo get two bars. Not sure what changed?

Verizon in DC is garbage, T-Mobile is tops in this town, I'm not sure about AT&T or Sprint. I've been a customer of Verizon since 2000 and they started out strong, were excellent for a long while and they focused on coverage and it was great, but then they never upgraded their towers or utilized or purchased bands and we're stuck with garbage service for data, soooo sloooow. I'm lucky if I get 1mbps speeds, usually it's around.5, although uploads are in the 5mbps+ range, so it's obvious verizon's oversold and hasn't upgraded anything in years. My friends with T-Mobile are experiencing data speeds of 15 mbps or more, much, much more even, while my phone keeps going from slow as hell lte to even slower 3g, even news sites take like a full minute to load, if they load at all, lots of refreshing and airplane mode cycling with verizon. I'm ready to jump ship.

Horrible 4G LTE data speed... like 300-500K. Like dial-up speeds from the early 90s.

2-3 bars, many times 1 bar inside Lyon Park. I can't believe Verizon doesn't have better coverage inside the beltway. Come on!

Coverage is ok until you walk into a store such as Safeway, no signals whatsoever. No signals in my hospital garage... .

I just moved from downtown (Columbia Heights) where Sprint reception was top notch. In Friendship Heights (southeast of WI Ave), Sprint's voice and data reception is abysmal (at most 2 - but usually 1 bar.) How is this possible so close to all the towers around Tenleytown??? Get it together Sprint -- this is the Nation's capital.

Single home in Lyon Village. Winter 2016: Both Verizon cell phones are 4 bars almost all the time, have been for 2yrs-ish. Back in 2013-ish was 2-4 bars, but now consistently 4 bars in the whole neighborhood.
