    We’re new to Snowden (well, I am. My husband grew up here, so in a sense, I’ve come back home with him). I have a question about cell phone carriers. Which one has better coverage up here – Verizon or AT&T? We have AT&T now and have spotty service. Some days it’s awesome and some days, well, you know…not so good. Since my cell phone is on its death bed, we are considering changing carriers, so any advice would be appreciated. Thank you!

    • We’re at 369 Snowden. We started with Voicestream/TMobile which did not work here at all. My work-issued ATT cell phone got a good signal and worked fine. We are now Verizon customers. Our low-tech LG flip phones work so well that we dropped our landline. But like realtors say – location is everything. Hopefully you’ll get more feedback from other locations.

    • 10 years Verizon or us cellular

    • Verizon has a pretty good reputation. My connection starts cutting out just past Cherry Ln Fire Station, which is pretty much right about where you are. But, good news, you can get cell coverage through wifi. It’s called Wi-Fi Calling. It’s amazing. It’s just like having a strong cell signal. Getting this has been a live changing event. I don’t have to tell people not to call my cell anymore.

    • Brian, we moved in about a year ago (80 Bates), had AT&T, and coverage in only one place in the house. Before I went to the hassle of switching carriers I decided to try a cell phone signal booster. I researched them and settled on this one:
      weBoost Connect 4G | 470103
      The very best $549 I have ever spent as we now have near perfect reception…throughout the house. The beauty is that it works with almost any carrier – certainly Verizon and AT&T.
      They have a great customer/technical support line, call them and they can walk you through the decision steps to take on your cell phone to see if the booster will help. Good luck!
