I have Sprint now, and I only get sporadic service while on Lake Fork. The Verizon website shows good coverage on Fork; can anyone confirm that?

also, any comments about AT&T or T-Mobile?


I'd like to switch to whoever has good service on the lake, so I'm hoping the TFF group can help with my decision.

Used to have Sprint as well. Service was spotty at best. We now have AT&T and are much more satisfied.

I have Verizon and it works fine in East Texas. Been on many lakes (including Fork) and it works fine. I use mine as a mobile hot spot for my laptop as well.

I have AT&T and it works pretty good at my new trailer and on the lake. But there are some places where it does kinda suck.

Verizon cell service is great at Fork. Hot Spot works great as well.

I have T-mobile and I get no service on Lake Fork at all. I'll occasionally get one bar, and maybe get a text but that's it.

ATT works fine, as does my hot spot. Somtimes the hot spot seems to slow down when its a
crowded holiday weekend,..otherwise just fine. fish

ATT keeps getting better.

I even use my tablet out there and get good wifi signal for streaming and or email connection. Was not always this way but it is these days on the west side of the lake at least.

ATT is great when on the water, but many areas around the lake I find service is sub par for sure. That being said its better then the other providers though in my opinion.
