One reader emailed me saying that service was poor at Oak Grove Village- 16 Island Hill Ave in particular.

When we had AT&T, we dropped calls all the time at our house (which falls in Option 1 in the poll). We're both on Sprint now, and things have been much better with them.

We are a "House Divided" With AT&T, the back of our house has horrible reception but the front of the house if fine. I've actually dropped calls walking between rooms in the house! We're on Lincoln St., when we had Verizon the reception was fine but a friend who lives on Hillcrest just up the street from us at the top of Upham St., has said she had to switch to AT&T because she couldn't get Verizon in her house. Its a little worrisome to think we are coming to rely on these devices more and more!
