Usually good, howevver, my cell connection with Sterling, VA - where my parents are in an elderly care residence = is horrid. When I call there from downtown, it's fine. From here, it's a loss. Have to get the lan line I cancelled years ago.

3 Out of 5 (3 stars) | Rt. 50 | Fairfax Dr., Arlington, VA 22201 |

Outside is perfect as it should be. 3G indoor performance near large windows and airy spaces is good (-70 to -80 dBm), but get more than 10ft inside or in smaller spaces (like apartments) and service quickly drops to -90 to -100 dBm, right at the cusp of dropped calls. LTE is a little worse compared to 3G. Data connections will randomly drop, sometimes lasting as long as 2-3 minutes. Kind of disappointing overall, but compared to what I've been reading here, it appears better than average.

I live in Gelmarc Towers. I can receive calls but soon after answering I lose the signal. Also, walking up Columbia rd towards 18th street the signal is always sketchy. It is impossible to carry out a conversation. This part of DC is dead zone for ATT service. I have the issue on multiple cell phones.

2 bars for voice but no 4G at all here or in the nearby neighborhood.

To the person who posted earlier today, 10 / 01 / 11, please call Sprint to let them know. I also have called. This has been happening since Tuesday. Check out the "network and coverage" section of the Sprint online discussion forum. (This board won't let me post links.) I have roughly mapped out what I determined to be the affected area. I can go outside the affected zone and bring a call back in with no trouble, though.

Decent reception walking around on the street, but poor both at work and at home. Phone will show show four or five bars of reception, then drop to zero. Fair number of dropped calls. Often, I can't even connect to call my voice mail.

Lived there for a year and could only have conversations when sitting in my window, and even then calls dropped constantly. Miserable. Moved 1 / 4 mile away and it's perfect.
