  • In northern Arizona you have to have Verizon. Even att is horrible. I've had all 4 carriers this last year and Verizon is the best. Only paying 90 a month for ten gigs and 2 lines. Really wanted project fi but I'm not waiting forever. Where Sprint sucks here T-Mobile is great and vice versa. Posted via the Android Central App
  • 300kbs??? Wow. The Magenta Network is running strong.
  • Tell me about it. Posted via the Android Central App
  • I just wish Verizons signal wasnt so bad where I live. Youd think with living in the panhandle of FL that the signal should be near perfect but its sadly mediocre. Not that anyone elses is much better but thats beside the point. Before moving here I was use to verizon always being the best.
  • Verizon signal is really spotty here in Rancho Cucamonga 91730
    I have been using Rootmetrics and OpenSignal to report this. I see accurate reporting from OpenSingnal but false on Rootmetrics. I think Verizon is slipping them some money to report diffrent.
