***Announcement: Early next week, we’ll be merging the current Fios and Wireless Communities into the all new Verizon Community! Beginning the evening of Sunday 12/4, both Communities will be placed in read-only mode. You’ll still be able to visit the Communities and browse content, but login will be disabled. On the afternoon of Monday 12/5, all users will be able to log into the new Verizon Community. We expect the new Community to be fully functional the morning of Friday 12/9. Additional details can be found in the Announcements board and under Featured Topics!
Declining wireless voice and data quality

Too many similar posts on this topic from too many different states and zips. VZ quality and coverage is declining significantly in areas that were not a problem a year or two ago. I switched to Verizon about 20 years ago regardless of cost because they easily had the best coverage and most reliable service almost everywhere. This is easily no longer true and ATT is doing better in my area in north suburbs of TX (75033 and 75034). I expect a reply like "we don't want to lose you as customer, let's private message" since I have seen hundreds of similar posts with the same canned response but it would be nice to see a real answer from someone technical and competent rather than another deflection of the problem. My assumption is they are either cutting corners or totally botching the 5G rollout or bought the wrong spectrum, etc.
