5 Out of 5 (5 stars) | Charlotte Douglas International Airport, Charlotte, NC 28208 |

My service is Perfect and Excellent with Verizon! My friends, college friends / professors, swim coach, and family (Mom and Dad) say it too! My Mom and I have had Verizon for a long time. My Dad has Sprint for work and service is horrible with Sprint but his leisure / personal phone is Verizon. My college professor has AT&T and service is frustrating and my Godmother has T-Mobile, but Sprint and T-Mobile are bad networks in most areas. AT&T have been a rip-off, they have billing problems and are expensive (plans are fine, but billing is horrendously insane). Last week, 20 college friends, 9 college professors, the swim coach, and more have switched to Verizon and have full service and 4G LTE service. My Dad and Godmother and sometimes college professor mostly and always drop calls and data is 75% slow. Verizon is #1, AT&T is 2nd Place, T-Mobile and Sprint 3rd / Last Place.

My Mom, Dad, and I had AT&T, T-Mobile, and MetroPCS in the past, and while out of these AT&T offers good service, Verizon's overall package is better. Verizon doesn't drop any calls, has perfect 4G LTE coverage, and has the best customer service hands down. I know several people on Sprint that are eager to get on Verizon when their contract is up. Like I said, AT&T is good, but Verizon is better.

I once had T Mobile, I once had cricket, after multiple drops calls and no signal areas I chose Verizon. I now have the best reception I have ever had and can travel from the city to the country and out of state and always have a signal. I wish Verizon was not so expensive, but I guess you get what you pay for.

Very poor reception in the building. Regardless of floor. You have to be in the park before you have a decent signal. Dissapointed in Verizon, this is a major metropolitan. They should have stronger towers.

Husband and I have NO reception in our condo. Rarely, we can receive calls at home if we stand in one 2 ft sq area pressed up against the window. Even more rarely, we can place a call from that same spot. He also has NO reception in his Manhattan office. We have to use WiFi / Skype to call anyone. And lately Skype has been crashing on our Nokia Lumia 820 and 920. We're about to pay $340 to get out of our contracts. Epi Center reps said there would be more towers and improved reception come fall. It's worse than ever.

My wife and I chose Sprint because of the low cost plans, but there is no way I can make you understand how bad their phone and internet reception is because it's a constant battle. We do not get reception in our home, or our previous home (have to talk near a window or on the patio). I own a company and my wife is in Real Estate and we do business in the Clt Metro Area and are price conscious consumers. We often lose phone calls while driving in Charlotte. Its rare to get 4G or LTE service. Most is 3G or less which means that the internet doesn't work. We've had Sprint for 7 years and have explained our issues to Sprint and they gave us a free Airave to boost our service, but it didn't work and actually hindered the wi-fi inside our home. We are fed up and have decided to pay $500 to cancel our contracts + the extra $30 / mo for phone and internet service that actually works with Verizon or AT&T. I can't tell you how many times we'll be with friends and everyone else has internet or phone service and we have none or ours just works painfully slow. Think about their business model - Their plans are very cheap, and they don't have more customers than Verizon or AT&T so how can they pay for a network comparable to Verizon or AT&T? I don't think they can.

Reception sucks and calls are dropped. Call quality is terrible. Sprint wanted me to pay another 120$ for a booster! Don't buy Sprint!

Does not matter how many times I use "Mark to Spot" to report my issues to AT&T. Which has almost been a year now. AT&T has done NOTHING. Cell coverage by the Charlotte airport with AT&T is very poor and that is putting it mildly!

I started with Verizon in Florida and could not get reception inside my house. Moved here and do not seem to have too much a problem. I can get and receive call inside and outside of the house. However, recently I was told that by someone they could not get through. It's a shame a city the size of Charlotte has such terrible phone reception among it carriers. I have been reading all the comments and none of the carriers seem to be outstanding.

I can't believe T-Mobile is rated highest in Charlotte. I have T-Mobile (unfortunately), and where I live (around Kilborne Park on the east side), there is a reception, at most, one bar. I'm talking about being outside. If you're indoor (just in a house for example), forget it, there is absolutely no reception, anywhere in the entire area. It's ridiculous.

Verizon Tech Support tells me that they lost a lease on a nearby cell tower in June 2012, resulting in poor coverage for customers in this area. I only get 2 bars inside my home and drop every call. They recommended a "network extender" for inside my home. If you're experiencing coverage problems in your area, please contact customer support to report the problem.

Depends on the flow of traffic on Atando Avenue. 3-6 bars depending on the PRL.

The intersection of Queens and Selwyn and Radcliffe, near Queens University, has become a "dead" zone in the last two months. I get reception inside my house with a "network extender" but no reception outside or within a 1-2 block area. What is the problem? This is new and we never had reception problems before. Anything to do with the construction at Queens University?

Dead Spot on the main floor of Charlotte Convention Center from Verizon Wireless. You would think they would put in some sort of signal booster for a venue such as this! Especially with the Democratic National Convention coming to town. Come on Verizon, you can do it!
