Default AT&T service

I have read that AT&T is not very good in the Villages. I am planning a week lifestyle visit- with limited service will my phone still work using the Villages GPS app / Waze app etc? Plan on putting on the miles on the golf cart - seeing as much as I can. Doesn’t matter to me how good the service is in the rental - just don’t want to always be lost when out on the road.

We have AT&T and haven't had trouble connecting in The Villages. Granted we haven't had need to check our GPS all the way through in every direction, so your mileage may vary as they say. But it works fine in and around Spanish Springs, from there to Sumter Landing, and from Sumter Landing to Staples and back, that much I can vouch for.

I have had AT&T for 10 years here in the Villages and no issues anywhere. I live near Lake Sumter. Not sure about the new areas, but works fine everywhere I go.

Five years now in TV and no problems with ATT. Calls, GPS and internet are fine.

We live in McClure and the connection with AT&T is weak, at Fenney Grill there is no signal at all. My wife's phone will lose the signal when she moves around the house while talking on the phone. My phone isn't quite as sensitive but it will drop the connection sometimes. We have no problem north of 44.

I live south of Lake Sumter Landing (village of Dunedin) and the signal in our house from AT&T was so close to non-existent when we moved here that we switched to Verizon (which actually isn't all that terribly great either). We were able to get a weak signal outside of the hose but not so much inside. We probably need more cell towers scattered through The Villages, but I'm sure nobody wants them in their back yards.

Default AT&T service

Depends on where you live. I am in Amelia and got virtually zero Att coverage at and within a block of my home. It was an ATT dead zone. Wifi calling worked in my house but call quality was horrendous. After probably 30 years with them under all their previous names until we moved up here I switched to Verizon which gives me full coverage everywhere. Best thing is to test it first. Get a prepaid sim and try it for a few weeks.

Oh, I always have the newest phones so that was not an issue.

I had AT&T up north and it worked great all over New England. When I came down here in TV, coverage was weak. At least for me. After a while I left AT&T and went with Verizon. Much better coverage.

I don't understand why everyone doesn't use the Verizon network. It has always been independently rated as the best cell network for more than 20 years. And, you don't have to buy cell service directly from Verizon to use their network. I also don't understand why the other 3 network providers are satisfied to offer an inferior network year after year after year.
