I am in house and ideal location (open location no big buildings not many trees, neighborhood with spread out small wooden houses, central city location) 4G reception. I am getting one bar to two bars most of the time. Am new here and have not tested GPS but I doubt it is going to be useful and am on this website today looking at different carriers. Am really disappointed to see what poor coverage all the carriers are giving in a progressive city, like Austin. Sounds like Austinites ought to stand up and force the issue.Was this review helpful to you?
Get junk service in my apartment with an extender. Constant dropped calls or the calls just don't come through. If it weren't for wifi my phone would be useless at home. It is SO frustrating! I don't know that anything would work better. We got amazing service in Houston, what's the deal Verizon?!?Was this review helpful to you?

Essentially no coverage indoors and very iffy outdoors. Nearly all calls dropped. Texts often fail. Callers can't leave vmail.Was this review helpful to you?
I was under the impression, that when I bought my iPhone 5 I could occasionally use it. I now have a very expensive paper weight and a means of raising my blood pressure instantly. The service is worse than I've experienced with any other carrier ever, and I will be switching soon. I honestly don't see how Sprint is even a major phone company with this kind of coverage. I'd say 1 / 5 calls go through, and those aren't always audible. Seriously seriously disappointed.Was this review helpful to you?
I've had T-Mobile for about 5 years now and I haven't had many issues with reception while in Austin. Only when traveling out of Travis County I have lower signal and speeds dropped to 2G. While using my Nexus 5 and on LTE I get download speeds anywhere between 20-35mbps. So far the best speed of 38 down / 15up was in the Anderson Mill / 620 area. I'm very satisfied with the service especially for the price I'm paying.Was this review helpful to you?
I have been experiencing dropped calls and trouble sending text messages. It seems no matter where I am in Austin I am almost always roaming. Thank goodness for wifi! Otherwise I would get absolutely no use from my iphone5! I am paying for LTE, why isn't it ever available???Was this review helpful to you?
Unlimited data yes, but it's unusuable. Looking to go to verizon. AT&T is bad, I hear T-Mobile hs gotten bad.Was this review helpful to you?
I have T-Mobile and the service is unreliable! I have iPhone 5s I looked on T-Mobile and it says on T-Mobile website I have 4G LTE where I live but only get E coverage and it shows 4G but it goes back and forward to 4G one bar to E coverage eventually! I have few drop calls :(Was this review helpful to you?
