4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | UMBC - Poplar Ave. and Hilltop Cir., Baltimore, MD 21250 |

T-Mobile service on the UMBC campus is pretty good. Get full service almost everywhere outdoors, full service in my dorm, but the signal can decrease rapidly once entering buildings. In classrooms, sometimes 0-1 bars. I think most all carriers have this problem. The big problem with T-Mobile around UMBC is that the tower seems to be overloaded. Frequently, I receive an "all circuits are busy" message or a "BEEP - your call cannot be completed as dialed." The numbers I dial are definitely correct. Seems to be an overload problem. On certain days can happen to as many as 25-40% of my calls.. can be inconvenient and annoying. However, signal level is good on campus and calls are clear.

Verizon is the best wireless company. I've had no dropped calls.

Very good coverage throughout the area. It's actually difficult to find dead zones. Calls very rarely drop.

Very frustrating. The reception is always very bad. More often than not, my callers just can't hear me.

3 Out of 5 (3 stars) | Edmonson Ave. | North Bend Rd., Baltimore, MD 21229 |

There's a new antenna that recently went up on top of the strip shopping center on Edmonson Ave and North Bend Rd (Today's Pizza, Dollar store, etc). It's not Sprint, or it hasn't been turned on yet, as I've noticed zero difference in reception. Ditto for Cingular; that's what my wife uses. I drove around back to see if I could find any signs or other indication as to the carrier -- nothing. Also checked with a couple of the tenants and they had no clue whatsover. Curious as to how one can find out which carrier(s) are / will be using this site... any ideas out there?

Rodgers Forge; very poor reception, many dropped calls from inside my house. So-so performance in front and back yards. But service was equally bad with Sprint and Verizon, so I suspect it has more to do with lack of towers.

Baltimore coverage has been good. Also works in the tunnels. A couple of drop out zones on my drive south to Annapolis though.

2 Out of 5 (2 stars) | Hamilton, MD | Harford Rd.& Glenmore, Baltimore, MD 21214 |

The area defined by Hamilton Ave, Northern Parkway, Belair Rd and Harford Rd has dreadful signal, though outside of this area signal rapidly improves. My commute home brings me up Harford Rd, and when I pass Lake Montebello, I have 4 bars, but if I'm on the phone, by the time I hit Hamilton Main Street, my call has dropped.
