Extremely poor to no reception in my home. Must walk around my pool in the backyard to avoid drops during phone calls. Generally rely on FaceTime talk to hold longer conversations.

Rarely get above 1 bar / dot LTE inside my home: enough to text or slowly load websites but not enough to sustain streaming video or avoid dropped voice calls. Reception improves a bit immediately outside of my house: 2 bars: can hold onto voice calls but still not enough for streaming video (not that I'm watching videos out on my driveway, just using that as a testing benchmark). Reception improves dramatically when heading west, by White Rd, I've got 5 bars. There's a weird deadspot at Capitol and McKee: back down to 1 bar non-LTE, then it jumps back to 5 bars LTE at 680 / McKee.

Up until about February, coverage has been good. Since February, voice calls drop or cannot be made unless a specific spot is found. Data connectivity is slightly better, but pictures and websites lag. Videos are always buffering. Issue persists with different phones.

No service at many of my locations. 30+ minutes on the phone with customer service. He checked my phone-no problem. So, he said that cell towers were down and that I'd get my reception back that day. NOPE. Still NO SERVice or 1 bar with terrible reception at those same locations. Ugh.

Just moved to the area. Major issue with cell coverage here. The signal will bounce from 3g to 1x, then maybe a faint 4g. Experienced a few drop calls. My wife spoke with VZW tech support for 2 wasted hours, checking phones, updates, etc... I wrote an email to the VP of the wireless operations, got a call from the exec relations. They say, they will send an engineer out to survey the area. We will see if it happens, probably after I which carriers. Expensively sad service.

Good near Ecr and San Thomas as there is a T-Mobile store there. But in my living room it often says no service. I have to go in the backyard and stand in a certain spot. Not fun when it's cold and raining.

I'm lucky if I can look something up on google. Pages take forever to load and often fail. No connectivity. Often my phone is 1x or 1 or 2 bars of 3G but still doesn't work. Internet is a little better late at night for some reason. My friend has metro and her 4g works fine in my house no problem. Mine is the much more expensive Verizon service. Go figure... We both have the 64 gig iPhone 6.

Verizon signal very weak inside garage (2nd floor): DB readings: -118 to -120 to NO SERVICE. Then, may fluctuate between 3G to 1x and NO SERVICE.
