Outside the reception is not bad. It is when you go indoors mostly. I get absolutely no connection at work (Liberty University). It's odd to think that a University of 10,000+ students doesn't have an AT&T tower nearby. There is also two other colleges in the area. When I'm at home I have a signal 90% of the time. When it gets cloudy I sometimes have problems. I wish AT&T would realize that they are loosing a steady stream of customers and would install a tower to remedy it. Every year, about 3-5,000 freshman come in. Kids with iPhones trade them in because they do not get any reception in the dorms or the main academic building. Most freshman with AT&T turn to Verizon and that includes whole familys if they're on a family plan.Was this review helpful to you?
I am exceedingly happy with Sprint's coverage in and around Lynchburg. There are a couple of dead zones between Forest and Bedford on 221 (my daily commute) but I can plan around it. Around Lynchburg and in my Wyndhurst basement, I have been very happy with Sprint. My only complaint with Sprint is the phones: the offers are not great. There aren't many fun options (No I-PHONE for you!)... But functionally, Sprint is your #1 choice in Lynchburg!Was this review helpful to you?

We go outside most of the time to use our cell phones like most of our neighbors with difsignal ferent providers. I hope for Verizon increases strength in our neighborhoodWas this review helpful to you?
Verizon has been fine while I'm driving around town, but in my house the reception is dreadful. A little less than half of my calls are ruined by the reception going in and out. I can't hear them, they can't hear me. I call back and then things are fine. I have no idea why. Other times the call is just dropped. Sometimes my phone won't ring at all and the call will go right to voice mail. My wife can't use her phone at work in Bedford because reception is poor. I don't call my friends anymore because all I say is "What?" and "How about now?" and "Hold on, let me try over by another window." I live half a mile north of Rivermont. My phone always shows two bars, but that doesn't seem to mean anything. Verizon. Yuck.Was this review helpful to you?
Just forget getting any kind of consistent reception.Was this review helpful to you?
Front porch good, back porch ok if I stand on one leg while holding a sauce pan lid pointed toward Jupiter. Inside the house it depends on where I stand (like near a window) and if something isn't in the way (like curtains). Overall, if you want to get away from it all, Appomattox is a great area (high-speed internet only in the town and spotty cell-reception.)Was this review helpful to you?
This is my main travel route, but service is weak in far too many areas, overall. I was happy with Alltell, but won't pay for what I don't receive... cell phone reception! I'm told that U.S. Cellular is one of the best for reception in and around the Lynchburg area. I'll be looking into them when my contract runs out here soon.Was this review helpful to you?
Alltel was horrible in my area. tried to use Alltel as an alternative to my home phone with no luck. Also no coverage on 460 W going into BedfordWas this review helpful to you?
I have great coverage in the entire Lynchburg area... is just listed this particular section because live in the area and do not have home phones... we depend on our cell phones for communication inside our homes and it works fantastic. made the mistake of going to Alltel for 2 weeks to try to save on cost and the coverage was horrific (same phone)Was this review helpful to you?
