2Mbps download after 7pm. Up to 6 Mbs down before 10 am. 1-2 drop calls per day. In E OAK AT&T data and calling actually better out in inter mountain west. Vacation in CO UTAH and Nevada no dropped calls. Data Ok out in middle of nowhere! Could not see a tower.

I don’t have any service in the house. I have to go outside, and still only get one bar and the call sounds horrible. I also have the T-Mobile cell booster tower πŸ‘ŽπŸ½. WiFi calling is also very poor.πŸ˜”

Very disappointed in AT&T. Rarely get more than one or two bars. Looking for a reliable, strong signal for phone and hotspot.

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.

At home we never have more than one bar of reception strength. Dropped calls or losing transmission ability is not unusual.

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.

at&T They are a lousy provider of cell service and will lie to get your money. They refused to refund my money after I canceled service. $over 300.00 for three calls in 2 months. Charged me 60.00 for a 15.00 flipfone..Don't use At&T store on grand ave, Oakland Ca. Unless You don"t mind getting srewed. john miller

Cellular reception has dropped significantly over past six months to point we cannot make calls from the house. Poor reception, drooped calls. Back and front yards are marginally better. We are dropping for another carrier.
