Hello all,

This may be a trivial question but I had to get it out of the way.
Anyone living in Fishhawk area know which carrier has the best cellphone service in the Fishhawk ranch area?
I currently have T-mobile and love it (Atlanta) but last I visited Fishhawk area( Dec 2013) there was no service at all
T-mobile worked great with almost 4 bars LTE in Brandon but was essentially useless in the Fishhawk ranch area.I hate to go back to Verizon(great service but currently getting more value with T-mobile) but I will if I have to....

Thanks again.

And that's the reason I wanted to find out with others who are living in the area.
Thanks anyway !

Coverage Maps for Wireless Carriers - Sensorly


The carriers maps are not accurate. Looks like no dice on t-mobile lte there.

I have tmobile and live in Fishhawk. The cell service is bad. Some small spots get you 4G, but mostly edge. I usually have 1-3 bars when not in my home, but with tmobile's wifi calling feature, i have strong service when on my wifi network. Without my wifi, I would've probably changed carriers.

I have Net10 that uses AT&T towers. The coverage is pretty bad. Useless inside the house. Permanent slow service on 4G. Got advice to buy a "Repeater" for the use at home, but personally thinking to switch to Verizon.

So if you have Verizon or any other ideas, please give me advice.

Strange that TMobile doesn't have strong signal in Fishhawk. I'm in Waterleaf and initially had spotty service with both cell and data. But I now have strong Band 12 signal now, so guessing they put up a cell tower nearby. TMobile does offer 4G LTE CellSpot device for free that you connect to your internet router. As you know you can use your WiFi for data and calls (maybe depending on your phone).

You may want to post tweet or DM on Twitter to TMobile Help, found them to be genuinely interested in areas with spotty coverage. I had reached out to them when I had poor service and they let me know they were expanding coverage into the area. As I noted above I have great coverage now. Worth a shot?
