Post Cell Phone Coverage South of 44

During our LSV last October, our VSL toured us through a few of the villages south of 44 and I noticed that my cell phone had zero bars. She mentioned that only one carrier had a cell tower down there and don’t remember who it was. My wife and I have AT&T. I would imagine that all carriers should have reception in that area some time in the near future. Does anyone have any info on this subject?

In my opinion, the Verizon network is the best of the 4 nationwide cell networks. It is always ranked as having the best coverage. If you have Xfinity internet service, you can get the Xfinity Mobile cell service. It uses the Verizon network and is very inexpensive.

We just moved into Monarch Grove and have GoogleFi. We have not had any issues inside and outside, but our builder has Verizon and he had no service in our house and had to go outside to use his phone.

I've been a verizon customer for nearly 20 years, after dumping AT+T. I've traveled around the world and have become complacent as to their reliability. As we're moving from Buttonwood to Monarch Grove, we've found the reception is horrible.. I'm hoping that once we get internet installed, we'll be able to use a WIFI assist to improve... Else will be yelling and threatening Verizon (for whatever good that might do)

I recently went from 1 to 4 bars inside the house with T-Mobile in Monarch Grove somthey upgrade something. T-Moble is ok most other places for me in the Villages except Fenny.

You can see the cell tower next to the turpike as you cross the bridge.

There's a good guide at cellmapper . net

Type '310' in the provider box to quickly find Sprint, T-mobile, AT&T or type '311' to quickly find Verizon
