4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | Cedar Park, Round Rock, Downtown, Zilker Park, , Austin, TX 78750 |

Tmobile has been my carrier for 7 years now. Prior to having the LTE frequency I had poor coverage. With the purchase and installation of the LTE in the United states I LOOOOOVE my service. Not only do I pay a good taste but I have crazy download speeds. I clocked in 37 mbs a second which is faster then my wifi. I get 4g LTE everywhere I go here in Austin and every month in gets better. I saw alot of negative comments on here about coverage but I have yet to drop down to edge unless I am driving put to San Antonio or Houston my coverage drops to edge which is just phone calls for about 3 to 4 miles of the trip then jumps right back up. I am so happy that gave reinvested back into the company. I use my Internet so much I can't imagine how much I would pay in overages with AT&T or verizon. Shoot I can even share my internet with other ppl with the free Hotspot capability they give you. I also took a trip to Mexico city and took advantage of the free data roaming, international texting and wifi calling. It all worked like a charm and I didn't recieve any crazy charges. Everything was free just like they said. I am so happy I stuck it out with Tmobile. I can't wait to see how much more they grow this year.

Switched from AT&T to T-Mobile several yrs ago bbecause of billing issues. Service was great and no billing issues until 6 months ago. Now the service has been getting worse, dropping calls, no bars especially for data, etc.

The signal was always terrible since I moved to Austin. I can't even load a video on You Tube. This is my last month with this company.

I also have the air rave and sitting in front of the air rave in my home I do not have reception. I have dropped calls all the time. I have never seen 4G like they advertise. everytime I call customer service they tell me the area that I live in has the best coverage ever. They do offer the best plan, but when it comes to coverage and reliability I would rather pay more money and be assured of having coverage and no drop calls. I am constantly on the phone and it is aggravating when in the middle of a conversation, the line goes dead.

I left AT&T Wireless as their service in the 78727 was spotty and I found I was missing every other call. I switched to VERIZON Wireless - what a great service. Calls never get dropped, clarity is perfect, network stable and dependable. I actually pay $5 less per month with Verizon than I paid AT&T. Very happy with Verizon - havent had any issues or dropped calls

Have almost no reception in buildings upstairs or down. Had to purchase an antenna and signal booster to get one or sometimes two bars. Usually I can get a signal outdoors. I Our phones are a Apple 5s and an LG. I used to have an old US Cellular Motorola flip phone which worked well here, but we upgraded and changed service providers and have had a bad connetion ever since.

Brand new note 4 in a supposed best area on map and I get tossed into 3g all day, with occasional drops in coverage completely. I renewed for Spark, which when it does work, is no faster than 4g on my old note 2.. how they can run their business like this and not be sued for massive fraud is beyond me..

Have been with Sprint here for over 9 years. Service is always hit and miss when they are making upgrades or changes to their network. While on the new LTE these past 6 months, I've had 1 dropped call per week. Same goes for the data speeds, drop to 3 G or experience excessive wait times for 4G to kick back in. Searching through other carriers plans and coverage areas throughout Texas as I travel for work and sorry, but Sprint has the best plans financially and greater coverage.

Using an iPad2 with AT&T. Reception is almost always nil in most of Austin *except* on a few days every month. Maybe 3 days out of 30, the signal is strong for some reason. I'm originally from Montreal, Quebec. The signal over there (Bell Mobility) was strong everywhere, all the time, except in the remotest areas (meaning frontier of civilization areas). The Telcos in the United States are a government-sponsored mafia. This is my conclusion. Maybe all the bandwidth goes for all this NSA spying?... .

I signed up for T-Mobiles Family Plan several months ago thinking it was a great deal under $40 a month unlimited. Boy was this a mistake since then I have had nothing but problems one bar on my phone 75% of the calls I make and receive are dropped call failed, numerous text messages not delivered. The service is horrible disgusting. T-Mobile should not be allowed to sell this service or I should say NON-Service for any price until they improve it is just plain awful period. In addition to this when I called T-Mobile twice now for help to tell them about this, I was told they would call me back by the end of the week 2 times they never called me back at all. They know their service is awful at least in the Round rock, Cedar park, Avery Ranch areas if not a wider area and they continue to sell something that does not work and when you complain about it they dont call you back. I will be cancelling this horrible service today. Stay away unless you like 1 bar and constant dropped calls and non delivered texts all the time.

Renewed my Sprint contract last Saturday (5 / 31 / 2014) and purchased 2 new I-5 phones. From day 1 have had many problems dialing out and receiving calls on both phones. Alter 3 phone calls to Sprint service and them telling me my network was just fine, I called me Sprint repair center store where I purchased my phone and they told me for the last 5 days they have had many complaints and they have terrible network / tower problems Austin, TX 78727) and don't have a clue when they will be fixed. $170.00 a month for what??? I've been missing important calls, some of which I will eventually get a voice mail only! How should I pay Sprint? I am retired and each penny counts!

Dropped calls, unsent texts, poor reception. This in the Indian Oaks subdivision of Milwood, between Parmer and 183, north of McNeil. Similar problem with T-Mobile but that was several years ago. Switched to Verison and it's no better, maybe worse. I will be upgrading my phone and carrier.

Over 20 years at sprint, I have spent hours with their technical folks over the last 6 weeks. The of nly way to stay on the phone without a call failed is to use skype. They decided to send me an air rave, which takes 8-10 days to arrive ? I plugged it immediately upon arrival thinking it would actually help :( nope. Then I got the email saying if I don't use the air rave I would be charged $140. I just thought to myself "dorks". Then thye sent a letter to my office " you will be charged $140 if you don't use your Air rave, which means the accounting department had to discuss the letter and them come to me. Now I am into some serious money for "talking about sprint" and I still have little to zero service in Austin. I hang in there... After all Sprint wants to help with "My" problem. In addition to dropped calls there is a message "you have entered the incorrect number or code. Message 7. Code 2301 - which really a code to tell them the issue and has nothing to do with the number you dial. Now, I have been told by Sprint that my Clear internet is not strong enough to assist the Air rave. Quess who owns Clear now? Sprint. Then I got a bill for extra minutes - for talking to tech support? Customer service said they would give me $50 off the $100 extra dollars? Gee whiz. Add this to charging my company $30 a month for a phone I have "successfully" cancelled twice that I have been letting slide and technically they need a bill from me. I am seriously frustrated and wish I had time to pursue the matter with their top executives. They should just say, "we are sorry our service is not as good in your area as it used to be we understand how important your phone service is and we suggest using another carrier until we can win you back" Wow! That would have been so great. They could put me on the list, call me back and I would have come back whenever they wanted. Instead we have all wasted hours and I still have to find new cell phone and internet service due to "my problem" - gee and I used to be so great at getting service.

Had weak coverage from AT&T every place we've lived in Austin. This is just as bad. Considering buying a 3rd party repeater, but I hate the idea of a visible antenna on my roof. (My neighbors probably do, too.) Femtocells are a ridiculous joke-- pay *MORE* money to AT&T to compensate for the crappy service you are *ALREADY* paying for, and they run it over your broadband service, which you are *ALSO* paying for-- and for all that, the minutes you use still count against your PLAN! And all that depends on the stupid femtocell being able to get decent GPS signal!?!? So you have to put the friggin thing by a window, which means if you get any improvement at all, it's only in one corner of the house??!?! F**k you very much, AT&T.
