T-Mobile has upgraded the area to LTE. Previously we only had 2G. It works great but its not super fast like other areas (12mbps max here). The coverage is very strong and I have no problem getting a signal indoors and in metal buildings. With T-Mobile's much better plans and the excellent coverage around here they are probably the best option if you live here. It's incredible because it used to only be 2G which was slow and didn't work all that well. Now with LTE it's a night and day difference. T-Mobile has the best network in the area now.Was this review helpful to you?
I've had US Cellular service for around two years now, and I have to say I've had zero issues with reception, no dropped calls, and blazing fast 4G service. Their customer service is honestly the best I've experienced. I had AT&T for several years before that and didn't have any issues with service, however customer service was atrocious. I feel like Sprint gets a terrible rep, but they're not bad, at least in the Metro area.Was this review helpful to you?
Always very weak reception here. Not a problem once I leave this area.Was this review helpful to you?
T-Mobile is improving rapidly. Previously I would drop to worthless 2G EDGE or GPRS when I drove in any direction away from the city limits. Now, most of those towers have been upgraded to LTE. T-Mobile still has issues with in-building coverage and fringe coverage in rural areas where AT&T will barely cover an area with 1 bar of 4G (T-Mobile will get No Service in these areas) but T-Mobile's much faster network and much better plans make this trade worth it in my opinion. I get the fastest speeds with T-Mobile in Tulsa (Verizon is a near second). If you need fringe coverage for voice (those really really rural areas in the sticks) I would choose Verizon. AT&T, US Cellular and Sprint are poor choices these days. Ranking networks on Speed I would rank them in this order 1. T-Mobile 2. Verizon 3. AT&T 4. US Cellular 5. Sprint Ranking networks on rural and in-building coverage in the sticks I would rank them in this order 1. Verizon 2. U.S. Cellular 3. AT&T 4. T-Mobile 5. Sprint If all things were equal on cost, Verizon would be the best choice but seeing as how they definitely aren't (T-Mobile's plans are a vastly better value) and how hard T-Mobile has been working in this area to improve their network and coverage (especially their rural coverage) they have earned my business.Was this review helpful to you?
First got u.s. cellular in hopes of receiving good coverage. Was told u.s. cellular was great in Tulsa, especially the newly updated towers in south Tulsa. Couldn't be any more wrong. Sometimes I have to drive to highway 75 just to get a signal to call. I pay for 4g and am lucky to even get 1 bar for 3g. Most of the time internet is at 1x. And constantly roaming. By far the worst cell phone experience I have ever had. Even no contract cricket had better service.Was this review helpful to you?
We've been with US Cellular for 20 years but can't wait to switch! Signal strength... 1 on a good day! Low signal strength is a new problem but it's a huge problem. Seems to have worsen since March 25th storm or since latest Samsung upgrade. If anyone lives in the Berryhill area please let me know if you have the same issue and if not... .what carrier do you use?Was this review helpful to you?
I use an iphone. My account was hacked through icloud. I use AT&T but through my research of my hacking, they are using a third party carrier called MCI Metro who specialize in bringing internet and phone service to rural areas. They do this by (the way I explain it) is like a party line. Everyone is sharing the same broadband. I have people using apps on my phone, using my email accounts, and MCI Metro executives calling into my phone to check their voicemails. Right now my IP shows I'm in Ira Tx where a ATT utility truck parked out front of a shady hardware store off goople maps. Ive had to shut down all my social networking apps. It will be an ugly lawsuit.Was this review helpful to you?
Verizon has excellent service throughout the Tulsa area. With all other carriers their LTE speeds have slowed with time if you can connect to LTE at all (looking at you AT&T and Sprint). I nearly always have an LTE signal with Verizon and its always fast (6+mbps, usually around 10-30). Verizon has XLTE (AWS, band 4) near TU and I can actually use my phone at the stadium, (even when OU or OSU comes to humiliate us (I mean visit) and the stadium is full), with great speeds. I love the new VoLTE HD voice with my phone. It has improved their call quality tremendously, (which was my one major beef with them previously).Was this review helpful to you?
