My Verizon service was good here for years. I actually switched to it because AT&T was bad at my house. But in the last 6 months or so I've noticed a substantial degrading of my signal at my home and all over the Oakland / Berkeley area. I'm over it and will be switching to another provider.Was this review helpful to you?
I now understand why my signal is so terrible here. If you look at the map, there is only 1 tower on the far end of the main island of alameda. And I think another over on Davis st by the Costco. Verizon only has 1 near the Oakland airport. What I don't understand is why there are clusters of them in towns kinda outside the main areas. Like, a bunch in south san Francisco but none IN San Francisco. A bunch in Concord but nothing around Richmond. And so on.. If you look At the map for each individual cellular service provider, its not much better but Sprint seems to have the least of them all. What happened? I used to have no complaints with my Sprint signal but in recent years something has changed. I have this 5g capable phone but no 5g but I barely can get 3g 4g or lte, always roaming or no signal at all, never more than maybe 1 bar and a flickering 2nd bar.Was this review helpful to you?
ATT reception has consistently been poor in Point Richmond when I travel to this location. ATT maps indicate that I should receive good reception. I'm seriously considering a switch to Verizon.Was this review helpful to you?
Terrible OMG can’t wait to switch to Verizon... I don’t understand why the service so bad in such a busy city by the beachWas this review helpful to you?
At home we never have more than one bar of reception strength. Dropped calls or losing transmission ability is not unusual.Was this review helpful to you?
It’s damn near 2020 and Verizon service here is bad. I haven’t had any dropped calls but during phone conversations it breaks up. Data is very slow. What’s up with the most reliable network??Was this review helpful to you?
Never had any trouble with Verizon service in this area and coverage is pretty good anywhere I go -- I am having trouble with the price though so am shopping around.Was this review helpful to you?
Service is fast sporadically. While at home and while walking to campus. The LTE is nonexistent. Most walks to and from school, I cannot use the phone for anything requiring cellular dataWas this review helpful to you?
Richmond has well over a hundred thousand people have to go to Elcerrito to get good cell tower service and El cerrito only has 25,000 people T-Mobile has no respect for RichmondWas this review helpful to you?
Never get higher than one bar. No cell available during power outages. Bummer! I am told Verizon has backup battery for power outages but don’t know if they are good for this area that is up against hills.Was this review helpful to you?
