T mobile. I don't like it anymore. Poor coverage and poor service. They just want money!

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.

Sprint map show our house as having full 3G coverage. However, the phones in our house are roaming. Wish we knew who was covering it.

Verizon has best reception in Austin. I had AT&T and Sprint before. Actually My Dad had Sprint, his colleague has T-Mobile, and my Mom and I have Verizon. My Dad's friend has AT&T and Sprint and T-Mobile suck in Austin. Verizon is #1.

Coverage map shows 4g, but 3g barely works. If I didn't have WiFi, the phone would be a brick. Was getting 4g at work near zilker and Mopac, 3g barely works there too.

Extremely poor reception. Lucky if I can even get text messages... let's not even get started on dropped calls. Reception is practically useless all over Austin not just the north side.

Reception is poor. Have to go outside to talk on my phone. Has been this way forever. Neighbors have the same problem. We are all thinking of switching to a new carrier. Please fix this problem or we are gone.

Very bad reception in the house - unusable to talk. Have tried this with other phones and carriers in the same year and Verizon is consistently the worst for our area.

Every since Sprint switched to 4 G LTE, I am getting spotty coverage all over the Austin Area, bad at my home and almost non-existent at my office, can't even send receive Text messages. When is Sprint going to FIX THIS!

We switched to Sprint a few months ago, and the service has always been spotty, but it's been... well, you can't really even call it "service" anymore since we can't use our phones at our house. Calls are dropped repeatedly *every time* we make a call. And that's assuming we can even get a call to go out. Incoming calls are even worse. They don't show up, so we don't even know if we're missing them. We've called and been told they're doing maintenance, which seems to be the standard line, and we've done the online chat with a representative to diagnose the problem. Guess what, it's not our phone. But since going through that process and updating some stuff, now I can't even leave a voicemail for my wife if she's at our house. It rings about 8 times and then a recording comes on saying they can't complete the call. So we're paying them gobs of money every month for essentially nothing. The salt on the wound was when we called their service center and the call dropped a couple of times. They called back and asked us to use another phone to talk with them. I suppose irony is lost on corporate America.

Neither of our phones keep reception while in our home neighborhood. I haven't had a home phone in 10 years, but I had to add one back so that we can make calls when at home.

I have been with Sprint for over 10 years now, most of which here in Austin, first at Scofield Ridge and now in Lakewood. Sprint has gone through phases, but this is the worst it has ever been. 3G speeds are so slow I can't even browse often times, and dropped calls, blocked calls, calls that ring, but never show up in your phone (until you get a voicemail), poor call quality, failed text messages are common place more than ever now. I understand they are upgrading to LTE, but this is just very poor service. It seems every carrier has its issues, but I am hoping it will be better at AT&T or Verizon as I am heading there next. There is no way I am getting a new LTE phone and staying with Sprint... It's gotten bad enough that I am making an effort to shop around.

T-Mobile has spotty, if at best the worse coverage on Equestrian Trail (78727) and in the area. Dropped calls are constant.

I get great phone and internet coverage with Verizon. I work at a hospital and that is the only time I have ever had any problems with internet (super slow or doesn't work at all). I assume it is because of the building.

Poor reception- only two bars most of the time. Also, phone goes into roaming occasionally and consumes all of the battery strength. I also have dropped calls zone around the University.
