I and others I’ve spoken too have seen a severe degradation of network signal in Newport Beach. A store manager told me that he has seen a lot of people come in for this lately and believes a tower lease wasn’t renewed (apparently some of the most expensive towers in the nation are in Orange County). I can’t get more than one bar inside my house (new Apple 13 phone and unlimited 5g plan haven’t helped) and am lucky to get two bars outside.
I have the same question and cannot get ahold of anyone at Verizon to ask. I'm in Northwest Ohio. Everyone keeps telling to change providers. Then when I call Verizon support I have to listen to stuff about Hoya health services for a long time and then can't reach anyone for help! What the heck.
