New housing development built in the area. Barely any reception in that area and on Hesperian heading south... which eventually turns into Union City Blvd. All along UC Blvd you're lucky to get a bar at all.Was this review helpful to you?
Depending on traffic on 101, reception is good except rush hours. 3 bard generally. Much better than the lower parts of town, I think.Was this review helpful to you?
Cell phone reception on Cingular around Pacifica seems to be pretty good. We ocassionally will lose reception going up / down parts of Sharp Park Rd. (only in one specific area, just below the house that sits above Sharp Park Rd.), and going up / down Highway 1 right below the 35 / 1 Interchange (on the downhill side coming into Pacifica). I can't tell if the loss of signal in those areas is due to weather or other factors. Reception will be lost if you go all the way up Oddstad Rd. towards the horse ranch, though.Was this review helpful to you?
Nextel has one to two bars in Altamar / Ridge complex. Dropped calls are common inside buildings (never walk around) but calls can be held outdoors.Was this review helpful to you?

Depending on time of day and weather, reception can vary from none at all to two bars. Baseline is zero. East of power lines that bisect the mountain, baseline is two bars (can generally make and hold calls).Was this review helpful to you?
I have had great reception with my Verizon phone in all of East Palo Alto (and all of bay area for that matter).Was this review helpful to you?
Nextel service sucks everywhere. From SF-SJ along Hwy 280, reception really sucks. Two-way sucks just as much.Was this review helpful to you?
Poor reception on Dumbarton bridge and Menlo park area near the bridge. Get more dropped calls than good calls.Was this review helpful to you?
AT&T Wireless (GSM)
Outside house, generally one bar... on street improves to 2-3. Can make calls. Inside house - forget it. Even if I manage to find a 1 bar location, I must use my bluetooth headset as moving the phone any little bit (like putting it to your ear) is guaranteed to lose the signal! Also noticed in general area (SF Bay Area between Mountain View and San Francisco), GSM reception is horrible indoors anywhere. Switching to Cingular network is sometimes better but not noticeably better.Was this review helpful to you?
