Wow, everyone's talking bad about Sprint, but among my group of coworkers I'm the on,y one with Sprint and I have the best coverage and LTE speeds and they don't. I'm getting 80+Mbps speeds in Downtown Oakland.

Horrible. Dropped calls. Cutting out. No carrier does this area even adequately. Got better reception in Mexico.

Signal quality has deteriorated over 2017 to the extent that I am considering resuming the use of a land line at home. Ironically, while property values have increased, cellular service has decreased.

Verizon gives decent service in this area--don't like the company and would change if another company could give service. Don't care for the layout of this website. It's hard to see an overview of the information.

between 40th and 43rd and Adeline and San Pablo, I have very little reception, including in my home. 1 to 2 bars. Only saving grace is using wifi calling at home. Usable but not good, sometimes can't make a call until I cross 40th on Adeline. (switched from T-Mobile 4-5 years ago which had great reception in this area, but not in the hinterlands like Russian River and Tahoe).

I've had Verizon service for many years and I cannot even recall the last time a call got dropped. While I often lose service when I get to the 2nd or 3rd level down in the parking garage, the 1st level down is consistently solid. I get coverage in elevators too. I travel all around the Bay Area (especially the peninsula and never drop calls and very rarely even notice any drop in signal strength. Same for when I travel nationwide. I am being forced to switch to Sprint due to job change and am not happy about it!

Never have above 1 bar service, calls don't come in or are dropped frequently. Internet so slow to open I give up after 5 minutes of scrolling! Terrible signal strength!
