I work on the third floor next to a window. 4G LTE speeds have always been slow, but over the last two-three weeks it's abysmal. I can't even complete an Ookla SpeedTest -- it "times out" after several minutes, with a download speed < 0.5Mbps. That's not a misprint. Less than 1 / 2 a Mbps! My signal strength averages -97 dBm, which isn't great but it's not terrible either. So... a device issue? Unlikely as co-workers with different VZW devices experience the same issue. Too much traffic and network congestion? Perhaps. An actual dead zone? Maybe. I don't really know, but whatever's going on is maddening - especially with the "premium" rates VZW customers pay. *Ironically, both speed and signal strength improve as I move inward, closer to the center of the building.

Though T-Mobile may have the best coverage as well as the other carriersin my area (ie. Verizon and AT&T) they are Enormously better then Sprint and T-Mobile get's 40mbps down on LTE, plus I get unlimited everything so I'm happy!.

first I ordered only a sim card I already had phone they asked if I wonted a contract or not I told them no contract but turns out they put me under one any way, when it came time to cancel phone they charged me $200. to quit then when I told them to cancel the phone instead of turning phone off they let it go all the way through billing so they could charge more money service is real poor and the company is dishonest.

Sprint is the worst As a business person is expect to get LTE in downtown Portland. I've called customer service several times to tell them how I have 1x or no signal. Emails, internet, maps, or any activity is terrible. Was told "towers being upgraded" But wait ! I traveled to San Francisco for business and the Apple campus. I thought to myself "get service here must be great?" But No luck, even in one of the nations most progressive technology cities. Sprint advertises LTE but it's a lie

This area (around Nike's main WHQ campus) is horrible for Verizon's LTE service. Just to get text messages I have to disable LTE and use 3G. This is a very populous area of Beaverton and it's not excusable for the #1 cell phone company to have such spotty data service.

Ever since I left T Mobile (they overcharged me on the rates and new customers got a cheaper rate and the full pkg and paid less than what I was being charged for getting only 1000 min. and no text) and went to Sprint, I have regretted it. Thought I would get better coverage and comparable plan. Well, ever since I switched, right off the bat the service was terrible. I live on a hill and I GET THE WORST RECEPTION EVER! I called customer service repeatedly and it was one excuse after the other. In the first year I probably had maybe a total of 5 months that I could actually make a call as the service was so poor. They would only take off $25 or I should say credit my account! What a total rip off! They finally sent me an Air Rave that should have boosted the signal. It helps a little but not much. Thank God I didn’t have to pay for that. I had to get a better phone so then was roped into getting one from them again and have been locked into another contract. I now need another phone and have several months’ till my 2 yr. contract is up. I went to a Sprint store and they told me up front that the phones they make they make them to last only a year. I am not going to be railroaded into another upgrade and have to pay $200 to get another phone and another 2 yr. contract. I am going to go shop the market and find a phone that I can use no matter who I wind up signing up with, buy it outright, stay and finish my contract with Sprint so I don’t have to pay a fee to leave Sprint and then go wherever I want and not be locked into a contract! These phone companies need to be taught a lesson that they can’t just push us around. I’m sick and tired of it! I hope this information can help anyone in the same predicament.

Sprint signal not as advertised on coverage map. Sprint says 4G LTE is best in my area, but at best 2 bars outside with phone pointed at tower on Mt. Tabor 6 blocks away.
