All carriers has cell coverage problems just south of the Prudential tower, but they got that cleared up around 2016 or so.

No bars on phone. Occasionally 4 bars appear but are soon gone. Service seems to be bad for most carriers at this airport.

Verizon has awful data service. I barely get a signal during my T commute. For o ver 3 / 3 of my commute I have no service. It's annoying. Underground is worst than anyplace. I see other people getting a signal but I get nothing at all. Over seas there is way much better service. Thinking about changing my service (or maybe my country).

It started in August -- almost every call I make from my home it drops the call. Once I leave my job I am switching to AT&T

Great coverage. I never lose signal within the city limits. Once I go outside the metropolitan area, it gets spotty. T-Mobile is #1 for Boston. I had Verizon and constantly had no cell service. For the price, T-Mobile is fair for its areas of coverage and is getting better when it comes to improving Data speeds.

I live right near the corner of West Newton and St. Botolph street... Sprint telephone and internet coverage was better before they went 4G LTE. When they were 3G I had decent phone and internet service. Up until I got rid of them in September I did not. I simply had no phone service or internet on St. Botolph at all. Also right behind the Prudential building on Huntington Ave and around the Christian Science Center there was is spotty or no service either. I work in downtown Boston financial district. There are many places in downtown Boston where you have no phone service, no internet service and what service you do have is very spotty. I do contract work and I can't begin to tell you how much money I lost due to missed phone calls. I contacted Sprint many times and after finally crawling my way to a higher level of tech support I was told OUTRITE its as good as its gonna get. "Boston's market has been upgraded and until we get other cities up to 4G this is what where we are." I had four lines and a tablet with Sprint. I disconnected all of my services with Sprint. 2 of them were a bit of a battle due to contract commitments. I managed to get out of those commitments and early termination fees by explaining to them they are not providing me with a usable service so what would make me want to stay with them? At first it didn't work but I went up the level of management and finally they get sick of me. I guess that's what it takes. The representatives and management seem to take this in stride.it sounds like they hear this all the time. I jumped over to Verizon as much as I didn't want to but at least I'm able to use my phone and Internet now. I need to be connected at all times. I couldn't afford to be a Sprint customer anymore.
