We have it. Monarch Grove. Inside the house is spotty. Need to use w-ifi and wi-fii calling to fix the issue. Outside is fine.

Basically, there are 4 cellular networks that cover the entire country: Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile, and AT&T. Verizon is the absolute best network by almost every independent review. I don't understand why anyone would use another network, when you can get the Verizon network with a low cost provider.

Switched from AT&T to T-Mobile about two years ago. Saved a ton of money each month and service is good. No complaints.

I get 5 bars in Monarch Grove. The reflective foil insulation used in the homes attenuates the signal inside.

And for people who travel overseas, Tmobile is great. In a zillion countries we get free data and text and very inexpensive calls. We pay $60 per month including taxes for two of us (55+ plan).

We pay the same thing. We have been customers of T-Mobile for 17 years, dating back to Suncom in South Carolina. We didn't have great reception inside the house in certain areas, so they gave us a cell spot to plug into our router. We have great coverage at home, and we have had good service while traveling everywhere.

I agree..As I sit here in London visiting our daughter, tmobile is awesome. Text,data and low cost voice without any increase in cost. same thing in Germany France even St Pete Russia Awesome. And it works great in our home in Pennecamp. 60 per month/2 people/all you can eat/taxes included/......and it works.

The T-Mobile network is fine in The Villages. Some people have issues inside their home - enabling Wi-Fi calling will address that issue. The lowest cost way to get T-Mobile is through Mint Mobile (a prepaid MVNO): $15 per month for unlimited voice and text, and 3 GBytes of data per month. Higher data usage plans are available. You can add $$s to your account for overseas roaming or just find a Wi-Fi zone and calls work flawlessly.

Default T Mobile

We switched to T Mobile about 8 mos ago from ATT. Couldn’t get service from ATT in our new home in Lake Deaten and didn’t have internet for WiFi calling so we switched to T Mobile. They let us take home phones to use for a month before we had to commit. They also gave us two boosters to use in our home and all works great! Love the service and the price!
