3 Out of 5 (3 stars) | Just North of Armour Sq / Sox Park, Chicago, IL 60616 |

Service is dependable on voice calls but mediocre on data west of the Dan Ryan. East of the Dan Ryan was outstanding a couple years ago but has declined to merely decent. Data speed gets very poor during Sox games. Speeds; east of the expressway at IIT, 30 down, 20 up; west more like 10 down 4 up; on an LTE band 4 / Band 13 phone. Newer phones with carrier aggregation and Band 2 and 66 support may do better. VOIP reliability on Google Hangouts has improved a bit but still poor. VoLTE HD voice is very good quality, VOIP sometimes falls apart during peak times.

In the last 6 months. our T mobile service has dropped significantly. They have no valid reason when you call and ask why. We have been T Mobile customers for 3 years and are now switching providers. We can rarely send photos on text it is bad.

AT&T has little to no service in the Lakeview area. AT&T’s solution is to use WIFI calls which would work if I knew everyone’s WiFi password. I have multiple friends in the neighborhood and the all suffer from little to no service. iPhone or Android.

Full 4G bars but no internet connection. Connects for about 20 seconds and drops again for hours.

If I have signal, it's only 3G. But everywhere else (burbs and further) I have amazing signal. But in the 2nd highest populated neighborhood in the 3rd most populated city in America... horrible.

Practically unusable for calls or data. Shows 4 / 4 bars, but calls are patchy and data basically doesn't work at all.

By far th worst service provider I've had thus far with very little explanation from Sprint as to why their service is so bad. I'm fed up with their service and is currently seeking another provider. What help is it for me to have a reasonable monthly fee for service that doesn't provide the very basic? I wouldn't recommend Sprint even if they try to entice you with "Low Cost Service".

Good reception on phone calls. Calls occasionally go to voice mail without phone ringing. Overall good experience both in Chicago and in several cities during travel using GPS and phone.
