    Is anyone using at&t. In Westport. Do you get any service off shore and how far. My Verizon service sucks at home and o am thinking of switching. But Verizon works well at Weatport

    My buddy has AT&T and it is decent at Westport but not as good as Verizon. Coming in from offshore I was able to pick up a signal before him, but only by a couple miles.

    Vance, call Verizon and tell them you're service sucks and they need to provide (for free) you a cell booster for your home or you are going to switch providers. This worked for a coworker.

    I switched from Verizon to T mobile a while back because I spend a lot of time on lake Roosevelt and had zero service except right at the dam. So far coverage has been decent in areas 3-4. Had three bars on swiftsure a few weeks ago. I’ve yet to find anything that works on the tuna grounds.

    I have AT&T. It works well pretty much everywhere in town. Once you get 12-15 miles offshore it starts to get spotty.

    Att in town is fine, doesnt seem like I could get a whole 10 miles offshore with service though. Could be a device issue, but I loose service pretty quick heading west.

    Verizon always seems to be the best off the coast. Commercial fishing up and down the coast several years ago Verizon was the only consistent game. Two or three years ago T-Mobile supposedly put up a tower behind Grayland which should of helped. A friend who just finished building a house on the hill behind Grayland says his T-Mobile seems to be getting worse. Of course it could be the age of his phone or...he needs his wife to look at the settings.

    I've heard Tmobile is getting better as they integrate all the Sprint networks over the next few years.

    Sprint Sucks! No or spotty service in the harbor, and nothing crossing the bar and further west. Verizon is the only way to go out on the coast. Just my two cents.

    I have Xfinity and it allegedly uses Verizon towers. Had a touch of service at the halibut spot Thursday.
