I’ve been with Verizon for years but the reception in my neighborhood is not very good for both 3g or LTE. Along my street it is normally 2 bars of LTE with quite a few spots with only 1 bar. There’s one spot at the very end of the street where I can sometimes get 3 bars. Inside my house it is obviously even worse, normally at 1 bar and sometimes dropping down to 3g (which is also only at 1 or 2 bars of reception). I swear it wasn’t *this* bad several years ago, but I also don’t take many phone calls and I have WiFi for data. My more recent phones have supported WiFi calling as well so I don’t get dropped calls like I used to. I kept hoping that it would eventually get better, but if anything it has gotten worse over time. I’ve had this problem with all the versions of iPhone I have had as well as a couple of Motorola phones. It’s super annoying when the power is out or my home internet is down for some reason I have to go wandering outside to find reception or make a call like I’m out in the middle of the wilderness or something. I pay for the relatively expensive Verizon service because I do seem to get good service and reception every where else, however it’s a bit ridiculous how bad it is at the one place I spend most of my time.
My neighborhood is in the zip code 92081, approximately coordinates 33.159830, -117.222895.
