Well I have been here for a week now and so far I am sad to say that Verizon's coverage is NOT as good as I am used to in Atlanta/North GA. There are many places even in the town of Westport where at street level my phone has poor signal and forget about in-building coverage. Residential coverage in Fairfield has been hit or miss, the house I am staying in on Clinton street it is like -80dbm inside and -70 outside- useable, but not all that great and battery life is much less (higher power levels). I have had most trouble in Westport, where I had NO SERVICE in some areas. Comparing to Sprint, they are about neck to neck, though Verizon has a little better service inside residential areas where I have been. But it is a far cry from what it is in the Atlanta area. It seems to be that locals are SUPER ____ about cell sites around here. Don't even see many (even along Merritt Pkwy I only saw ONE monopole) like I am used to at home. Anyway, I guess it is just that I am used to like -50 and -65dbm anywhere from living in Atlanta metro.
