5 Out of 5 (5 stars) | Mall 205 | 102nd and SE Stark St., Portland, OR 97230 |

Had Verizon then moved to Sprint to save some funds every month. Worked out ok I guess for the first year. During second year Sprint's service was terrible! I paid early termination fee and MOVED TO CRICKET (at&t towers, shhh) I would honestly say better service than both of my last carriers. 5 lines with mixed data $120 that's it no fees!

Just moved here, and tethered from my phone for the first two weeks before internet was put in. The connection speeds were amazing (seriously... it felt faster than my 25mbps connection). Call quality is mixed - it says that it's HD, but it doesn't sound particularly amazing. Overall, though, I'm pretty happy with it.

Majority of calls drop; others are poor quality. Data is so slow / / who cares that it is unlimited if I can't use it? Just switched from ATT to Tmobile. Planning to attempt a switch back, T-Mobile is horrible.

I've lived in this area for 12+ years and I've never consistently received such poor cell signal coverage / reception. Bought a new phone last year on Verizon's recommendation to try to improve my reception yet I still only get 1-2 bars 3G (both inside and outside). I know Verizon is aware of the problem but I just don't understand why there are still no Verizon towers in this entire area (SW Portland / Tigard). I'm no telecom expert but I'd feel better if there was at least 1 Verizon tower on this side of town or even in Tigard / Beaverton.

Moved from Verizon to AT&T. I immediately noticed the 4g lte speeds are incredibly slow downtown. While Verizon was slower than AT&T in some areas, like the sellwood area, it was still fast enough for me. Now, with AT&T, the speeds are very slow, it's like I'm on a 3G network when I'm supposedly on lte.

A Verizon customer for years with great reception until past month. My iPhone 5s always had 5 bars; now it struggles to keep 2. I can't load videos, access apps. I'm perplexed and disappointed.

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.

4 Out of 5 (4 stars) | Beef Bend Rd. | 150th Ave. on Bull Mountain In Tigard, Portland, OR 97224 |

I'm near the bottom of Bull Mountain, on the south side of the hill, facing Sherwood. Signal is generally good, although DATA is sluggish at times. No dropped calls, here. My bill was $177, last month. I would love to get less expensive service, but everyone's comments on here make it sound like VERIZON is the most reliable service, as far as signal strength.
