T-Mobile has nothing outside of white plaza in stanford campus, find another service if you live on campus.

I have MetroPCS and it works outside in certain spots. on Linda Mar BLVD. it seems fine but once you get to the end you see the end of your 2 bars of hope. I really wish they would get service back there. but you get for what you pay I guess. the rest of pacifica seems ok along hwy 1.

Reception in this area is hit and miss. Better than two years ago, but still unacceptable. Is there a better carrier?

No reception at all. People who call me go straight to voicemail. The only good thing about Verizon is full reception inside malls, restaurants and buildings. Had to switch to T-Mobile and altho I finally get reception at home, there is no reception inside of buildings and restaurants! what a headache...

No problem throughout most of the coastside - except inside our house. No dropped calls yet. I've disabled roaming for now, so I don't get hit with huge roaming charges. Before disabling, it would often switch to roaming while inside the house.

Once I get to Everglades is when I start seeing bars. They claim that if I stand outside my house I should be able to make and receive calls, right! Only a one year contract so I switched over to Cingular. They're the only ones I've seen receive service back here.

Very poor reception inside my unit, unusable. OK outside on the grounds.

It's really hard to say what "average" is around here because it seems that all the carriers suck. I get reception in my house, but only reliable on the second floor. I lose the signal on 280 at Woodside Road, but only in the third lane (really). 280 by alpine road is also problematic. Sometimes I lose the signal on Farm Hill but not always.

Every day service cuts off as I travel towards Stanford on Foothill as I'm nearing Arastradero. Unbelievably reliable service here. Page Mill is also bad. The area around Stanford here is extremely spooty coverage and I can expect my calls to be dropped every day. Pathetic.
