Agreed Cell reception in the SE Woodstock area is horrible, text fail constantly, calls dropped, calls not received, cant call out half the time. AT&T you suck my 3g at least worked now this 4gLTE crap doesn't work worth a @#$%. Not just me I have talked to many people around here and they all say the same thing, get with it AT&T you rape us hard enough already.

Downtown Portland has abysmal AT&T data coverage. You may show full LTE bars, but good luck not having to wait far too long for any data to actually flow. I've had no problems with calls so this leads me to believe it's something internal to the network as opposed to the towers.

Calling reception is worst. We had been Verizon customers for over 10 yrs, then we switched to AT&T last November for monthly discount. We did not know AT&T has this bad reception in Vancouver! We use cell phones for our business, but we started receiving less phone call since switching carrier. My husband call the company to complain the problem many times, then he received the same answer as others like "cell towers have been damaged, upgrading, or adding, etc... " We are really regretted to switch the carrier.

Had Verizon then moved to Sprint to save some funds every month. Worked out ok I guess for the first year. During second year Sprint's service was terrible! I paid early termination fee and MOVED TO CRICKET (at&t towers, shhh) I would honestly say better service than both of my last carriers. 5 lines with mixed data $120 that's it no fees!

Just moved here, and tethered from my phone for the first two weeks before internet was put in. The connection speeds were amazing (seriously... it felt faster than my 25mbps connection). Call quality is mixed - it says that it's HD, but it doesn't sound particularly amazing. Overall, though, I'm pretty happy with it.

Even though VZ costs more than others (and trust me that I'm not happy about this), I must admit that VZ has the best reception hands-down vs. T-Mobile and Sprint.

Majority of calls drop; others are poor quality. Data is so slow / / who cares that it is unlimited if I can't use it? Just switched from ATT to Tmobile. Planning to attempt a switch back, T-Mobile is horrible.

I've lived in this area for 12+ years and I've never consistently received such poor cell signal coverage / reception. Bought a new phone last year on Verizon's recommendation to try to improve my reception yet I still only get 1-2 bars 3G (both inside and outside). I know Verizon is aware of the problem but I just don't understand why there are still no Verizon towers in this entire area (SW Portland / Tigard). I'm no telecom expert but I'd feel better if there was at least 1 Verizon tower on this side of town or even in Tigard / Beaverton.

Moved from Verizon to AT&T. I immediately noticed the 4g lte speeds are incredibly slow downtown. While Verizon was slower than AT&T in some areas, like the sellwood area, it was still fast enough for me. Now, with AT&T, the speeds are very slow, it's like I'm on a 3G network when I'm supposedly on lte.

A Verizon customer for years with great reception until past month. My iPhone 5s always had 5 bars; now it struggles to keep 2. I can't load videos, access apps. I'm perplexed and disappointed.
