re: Baton Rouge OTers: Make your case for either AT&T or Verizon


I travel around LA alot for work (construction), sometimes even to more remote places. I've never had a personal cellphone besides AT&T and my company also provided me with an AT&T phone. Needless to say I was a pretty "die hard" at&t fan. I remember going to numerous job sites and having terrible phone service to the point where I couldn't even make calls or texts.

8 months ago, work switched me to Verizon, and I was surprised at how much I liked it. Since I have switched, I can't remember a time i have had bad cell service (besides in Venice). I have sinced cancelled my personal AT&T phone and am a believer in verizon.

Verizon here


Get perfect coverage everywhere around BR except my house. They gave me a network extender that seems to work okay.

4G LTE in New Orleans has his 50Mb/s

Texting is as fast as you can type. Uses data to send pics, and 4G is very fast

I have been with them for a long time, so my contract stuff is different than yours will be

Many new phones

Where to begin... Next to no service in my house, takes days to send media messages, calls drop daily, text messages get stuck in sending purgatory and people end up getting pissed at me, and I'm the only white guy I know on Sprint. It's the worst.


Can't believe you never got an airrave. It's like a mini tower that work's using your internet.

Verizon definitely has better service in baton rouge area. I'm still on AT&T b/c it's cheaper for me. The phone selection is good for both.

re: Baton Rouge OTers: Make your case for either AT&T or Verizon


I have both att and verizon LTE phones.

Service wise, i give to verizon....i use my att phone 80% of the time, but when i go out deep into the country or being on LSU campus during a home FB game, my verizon phone always works.


speed wise i give to att...the fastest speed test ive gotten with verizon was in the 50mb's...fastest ive gotten with att was 72mb down


att is cheaper, but not that much...probally 10 bucks cheaper?



im grandfathered into att with unlimited LTE data, and with my verizon phone, I have 10gbs of data.

AT&T never works for me in or near the stadium on game days.


Ever see that big sign on the scoreboard "Verizon"? LSU shorts AT&T on towers on gamedays to push their corporate sponsor. Even though there are 2 receiver/transmitters attached to the light standards on the east side of the stadium,there aren't nearly enough to handle the gameday crowd who have AT&T service.

Are you talking out of your ass, or do you have proof of that?

AT&T is garbage in Baton Rouge. No Service pops up on the top left of my iphone all the time.


This never happens for me. I never lose LTE when I'm in BR.

I don't have issues with AT&T. The data speed is great and I can't remember the last time I dropped a call.

Same here. 4G (read: 3G) data can slow to an absolute crawl in any area that is slightly dense on population, ie driving by McNeese campus. When I'm in BR though, LTE flies where ever I am. OP, are you an Android or iOS/Blackberry/Windows Phone guy? I ask because it doesn't look like Verizon will get another Nexus device, if that is your bag.

Geez... a lot of bad news from AT&T customers... any critiques of Verizon? Or is it all a beautiful walk in the park?



I have verizon and really like it. The only complaint I have is that friends of mine that have AT&T often complain that they can't call me. They randomly get a message sometimes that is 'Sorry the number you are trying to reach is not in available.' Doesnt go to my voicemail or anything like that. Verizon swears it's an at&t problem. So basically my only complaint about verizon is that most of my friends/family have at&t which sucks.

well just saying more of what has already been said, i switched from sprint to verizon 4 years ago and have been totally satisfied...i think it may be a little more expensive than some other carriers but it's completely worth it

The ONLY reason I am with AT&T is because I still have unlimited data with them. However, my internet is so slow on my iphone4 that its almost not even worth that!

That has nothing to do with iPhone vs lumia. More likely you had an iPhone of a generation before the 5... Which means no LTE. Now that you can connect to LTE you can utilize that network. I was at the Alabama game this year sending pictures texts and videos from the stadium over ATT LTE with my iPhone.


Good call, Wavn and LNCHBOX. I have an iPhone 4.
