The service sucks in the area. I get between 1-2 bars in the house and the if I'm lucky. The phone is slow and with the new contract with At&T the service has gotten even slower.

Have had it since it was Cingular -- just goes down hill. Service in Village of Wauwatosa non-existent or slow much of the time. Customer service at AT&T stinks. Reason I've stayed -- price for multiple lines.

Repeated dropped calls, 10 seconds or more to connect. Had the same problem 4 blocks East of here, I shouldn't be surprised. Want to warn others about using Verizon in Riverwest. Taking my phones back to Apple tomorrow. Switching back to AT&T.

Intermittent call dropping / failure to ring while I am inside. If I go outside or sit right by a window I get one bar.

Get dropped calls all the time in my house and not made of concrete. Even if I sit by my living room windows, still get dropped calls or I can't even make calls if I am in my house. Have to go outside to talk. Called Sprint and they said a tower is down with no eta for repairs. I have been hearing this for the past 2 yrs now. Now it's contract renewal time and I am still told the same issues. Goodbye Sprint and hello T-Mobile.

Reception is a continual struggle. Very poor reception in the house and often poor reception outside. Right now getting 0-2 bars and I cannot make or receive calls in my own kitchen next to the window!

Little to no reception in my bungalow in Riverwest; my iPhone will alert me to calls after a voicemail has been left. Soooo frustrating! I may have to buy the $250 in-home booster that Verizon sells. BTW, this area of Milwaukee also disables my car remote entry fob. It's all of the radio towers up along Capitol that messes up the signals.

We started with AT&T when the iPhone came out -- and it just gets worse and worse. Dropped calls ALL the time -- which they tried to blame on Apple. AT&T is NOT a good carrier for Milwaukee... or really anywhere. So frustrating!

No towers close enough. Had to add an IP booster in the home for cells to work properly.

T-Mobile

5 Out of 5 (5 stars) | Bluemound | Calhoun, Brookfield, WI 53005 |

Consistent voice and data performance compared to Sprint who has no 4G in Wisconsin. I'm able to tether 2 laptops in my office building (2nd floor) with almost 4G download speeds and nearly no lag. Cost is the T-Mobile's strong suite. My 5GB with free hotspot data feature is only $25 while my wife has unlimited data with no throttle / overages for $20. One thing to keep in mind is if you travel 20 miles outside of a metro area there may not be 4G. I have to use wi-fi calling when I visit my parents up north which connects to a wifi router instead of a tower to make a call.

Have had Verizon for years in other parts of Milwaukee with happy results. Moved to Riverwest this month and can only get a signal once in a while.

Verizon coverage is excellent in this area. I get 5 / 5 bars in my house, and even 4 bars in the basement. Data is strong and consistent. I have not had a dropped call or quality issues in the area.

Very poor reception inside buildings in the area. Terrible data speeds in the entire metro-Milwaukee area, even when next to Sprint towers. Very few problems with dropped calls, despite poor reception, however if you plan to view web pages or utilize any sort of a data connection, do yourself a favor and choose another carrier; The cheap price and lure of "Unlimited" data are tempting, but it's not worth it when it takes you 1-2 minutes to load a webpage, and frequent connection errors.
