Purchasing a home in Monarch Grove.
I have ATT and have no internet service on my phone there and in near by areas.
Anyone else have this problem?

I live a village north of State Route 44 and sometimes I have no signal. Neighbors have Verlzon and they have the same problem. While shopping at Colony Public and coffee at McDonalds I recently had no signal. Generally speaking cell service is inadequate in many places in The Villages. On the other hand, internet and cable service is reasonably good.

T-Mobile works better for me than ATT.

Are there any cell towers within The Villages?

Same problem up in Marsh Bend. I dropped ATT and bought a Verizon Pre Paid plan for 6gb hi speed data for my existing phone for $35 a month. Happy so far. Hope that helps!

The only one actually on Villages Property is on Buena Vista up towards 466A. Not sure who is on that tower though. Def not ATT or TMO. Everything else is on the outskirts. Those folks must have paid someone big bucks for that tower. Surprised they didn't rent out the big WVLG-AM Radio tower near LSL.

I am in Amelia and get just about ZERO ATT coverage in and within a couple blocks of my house. T-Mo is ALMOST as bad but I do get some signal. I switched to Verizon and even have just about full signal coverage in the walk-in closet. On the "over 55" plan which is UNLIMITED DATA for $40/month if you pay by debit or ach and $45 if you pay with a credit card.
