    Agreed. No reason I should have HBO Go keep dropping out due to the low level of 4G signal. The speeds are laughable at times.

    You could always switch to At&t or Tmobile. Oh yea Verizon coverage is better. It seems that Big red kinda hops around. They did a bunch of upgrades in PA all at once. And seeing you are in Drowningtown. My 4g is blazing fast right around the corner from you.

    Interesting. I was in the Ozarks in August with my S3 and had 4G coverage.

    In downingtown is fast but I work in Harrisburg and the commute on the train out there is very spotty. I have 4G 99% of the way there with supposedly full service and the speeds are horrible.
