Almost exactly two years ago, I upload a posting about switching from Sprint to AT&T Service. I’ve been using AT&T for my cell phone and iPad data service since then, and I’m still very happy with the LTE coverage. I live in the Seattle area, and get great fast data service. I’ve also driven on I-90 East towards Idaho, and for most of the way I get excellent LTE coverage. I’ve also been on two West Coast road trips where my family has driven down I-405 from Seattle all the way to San Diego and for the majority of the way we’ve had excellent cell service.
My son has an iPad with AT&T cellular service, and he used it for most of the road trip to San Diego watching YouTube videos and playing online games, and he rarely complained about losing service. That alone, is a huge testament to the excellent coverage that AT&T has for the West Coast.
Strangely, the only place where my AT&T coverage was poor or weak, was at Disneyland in Anaheim, CA. From my last visit a few years ago, my cell phone connectivity was very sporadic. Maybe that was done by design by Disney to keep their visitors focused on spending money rather than checking email or text messages on their cell phones.
So in summary, I’m extremely satisfied with my AT&T service. Of course, your mileage may vary depending on where you live and work, but I’m definitely glad my family switched off of Sprint!
