Verizon wireless works great in Amherst. There is a Verizon tower on a local mountain with 3G service now and going to 4G soon ( as of July 2011)Was this review helpful to you?
I have had US cellular for 2yrs now and I love it. I have signal everywhere. But I do live in a basment so I don't have good reception but once I step out it's great rarely do I have dropped calls.Was this review helpful to you?
US Cellular is the only carrier that provides full reception at my home in Forest. Always 5 barsWas this review helpful to you?
03 / 23 / 2011 No internet connection via Verizon cell tower via the new 4G Thunderbolt cell phone. Voice communication strength is always 1 to 2 bars at best, where as past reception was always excellent. Called Verizon today and they are looking into it. Will update this blog ASAP.Was this review helpful to you?
Horrible to non-existant AT&T reception in my house. If I'm lucky and I go outside and stand in my driveway, sometimes I get 1 bar, enough to make a quick call. Totally unacceptable! I work from home and am constantly missing calls. I also teach at Lynchburg College and the entire campus is a dead zone for AT&T - NO service at all. I'm getting out of this contract a.s.a.p.Was this review helpful to you?
Very poor coverage. I moved to the area in July 2010 and recently saw articles about "3G popping up on people's phones downtown," but I still struggle with 1-0 bars. I don't known how long I can hold out before switching providers...Was this review helpful to you?
Switched from Verizon in 2008... .to US Cellular. Great reception around SML Lake and around Lynchburg. Have reception on 99.5% of travel to / from Lynchburg via Rt. 626 / Rt 24 / Rt 43 and New London Road. (Lost signal in at least 3 places on that route with Verizon / Altell) US Cellular often has signal locally when my friends with ATT and Verizon have no reception. Great local coverage in foothills and around mountains.Was this review helpful to you?
I used to have 5 bar Ev signal and would loose reception during thunderstorms. Now I barely have 1 bar reception and drop calls frequently. What has happened to Sprint signal strength.Was this review helpful to you?
Love T-mobile's coverage in lynchburg. It has gotten significantly better in the year I've lived here. T-Mobile usually drags its feet on rolling out 3G coverage, but the lone wolf in this case is AT&T. Upgrading next week and I'm sticking with T-Mobile because of their 3G coverage maps. Looks good!Was this review helpful to you?
Wow. AT&T coverage is terrible in this area. I was so excited to use my new phone when I was in Richmond and the service was great, then I moved to Monroe VA for school and now my dreams are shattered! THANKS A LOT AT&T!Was this review helpful to you?
