3 Out of 5 (3 stars) | Sierra Vista Ave., Mountain View, CA 94043 |

I live in a condo, and usually get 1-2 bars - good enough for most calls, although parts of conversations often cut out; occasional dropped calls. Verizon Support says "in-home cell reception is not guaranteed". I find this unacceptable in the middle of Silicon Valley. Verizon offered to sell me a "network extender" device ($250), which accepts the feed from the Verizon office, sent over your in-home cable internet connection to the network extender, which then broadcasts the signal inside your home, like your own mini cell tower. Not sure about going with this yet.

Good voice quality, decent data, but there are times when data really sucks, especially in downtown SF. I would give them a good rating but they are too expensive, thinking about switching to T-Mobile.

I get 3G everywhere in Santa Clara near airport, and south into South San Jose. However, within 1 block of my house, it miraculously switches to 4G (where I have DSL anyway via WiFi), and up to 1 mile directly south. Seems like they have a single 4G cell tower in my area, but not at Meridian and Hamilton like the Sprint sales office was touting (all 3G there).

Service has been mediocre at best (2-3 bars) for the last 2 years, but rarely dropped. In the last few months (8 / 13-10 / 13) it has consistently been 1 bar and regularly drops indoors.

Coverage in this area is a joke. Forget about data or making calls indoors. Just barely works outside.

From 4-7pm calls do not go through. When they do, they are immediately dropped. Extremely poor reception when available. Even the ATT Micro Cell in the house is bad.

Terrible signal quality here on both Sprint and Virgin Mobile. Frequent dropped calls, garbled audio. 3G only works if you're standing next to an open window. Typically 1 of 6 bars (-104 dBm) indoors 2nd floor.
