I build cell sites for a living and Verizon has the best infrastructure by far. For all the people who are having poor reception indoors just by a repeater, booster or famocell. I get 4+ bars in my basement now.

Have a hundred dollar plan and reception isn't worth 2 cents. With the revenue Verizon gets you would think that upgrading towers would be top priorty... .frustration city... argggghhh

Sprint is absolutely terrible. I get very slow or sometimes no Internet or data with them. Even when the phone indicates LTE it just sits and spins. Right in the heart of the fastest growing part of Portland you would think they could figure it out. Sprint is my work phone and a casual poll of about 15 other users and we all wish the company would switch I have an AT&T personal IPhone that has excellent speed and coverage. I can out the two exact devices side by side And the Sprint phone sputters while the AT&T soars around the web and email. I wouldn't recommend Sprint to anyone

Voice calls are acceptable with one or two dropped calls per 20 calls. Data limit on phone is 3G and web speeds are acceptable, not great.

I provide feedback from poor data speeds in downtown Portland last July. I have continued to complain and Verizon seems unable to improve performance. My office is on the 12th floor by the window. Data speeds began to noticeably degrade in early June and I collected extensive data that I shared with Verizon tech support.I am now out of contract so I just checked again and the 4G speed is 0.56 Mbps down and 0.28 Mbps up. This is worse than the old DSL I had from Quest in this same building. I guess I have to look elsewhere to get 4G in downtown Portland Oregon.

Our phone reception here is awful. Constant static, dropped calls, no service. Have to move around, go outside, etc. Half my conversations are "Can you hear me, can you hear me?" Highly frustrating. When I called AT&T I was told it was because of all the trees. Humph. My husband just got a new work phone with Verizon service so we are anxious to see if that is better. Wish I knew what Credo's reception is like here.

Have had issues with T-Mobile for a very long time. My contract is up and have been considering switching back to Verizon. I guess T-Mobile doesn't care how terrible their service is because they do very little to correct this problem. I wouldn't recommend going with them if you are thinking about signing a contract. They will fail to provide quality service.

I switched to T-Mobile prepaid after getting a Nexus 4 and in Portland have had very few problems. Once in a while my voice will be choppy downtown but data is usually good. I will say that compared to Verizon, my previous carrier, T-Mobile's coverage outside of well-populated areas is pretty bad and the EVDO data speeds are atrociously slow (compared to Verizon's 1X data speeds). But this is 30 dollars cheaper and unlimited everything so it is worth it for me.

For over a month data speeds have been extremely slow. I have done extensive testing and the download speeds have been as low as zero and as high as about 1 MBs over the last month. Most speed test return results from 50 to 200 kbs! Talked to 7 Verizon tech support staff and the final answer is that the cell is overloaded and there is nothing they can do but build a new tower! I just canceled my data account for my usb and am shopping for an alternative.
