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.

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

I live around Austin area my reception sucks! We need more towers on the area we're paying to much for less that's not fair for the price and insurance that doesn't cover anything... im ready for my contract to be over. I heard great things about t-mobile.

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.

SPRINT IS CRAP- I use my phone for business and keep hanging up on clients daily which makes me loose sales and seems unprofessional. I'm dropping 50% of my calls which is bs and you can't tell me that Sprint is not aware of it or this site-will be switching to someone else after research.

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.

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!
