The Verizon service around the intersection of McKellips and Ellsworth (1 - 2 miles) is terrible and in many spots non-existent. This is a vibrant area with lots of new homes being built, and heavy traffic to places like Saguaro Lake & Usery Mountain Park. Some of the affected neighborhoods are: Mountain Bridge, Las Sendas, Boulder Mountain Highlands, Desert Shadows, Valley View, Grandview Estates, Whisper Mountain, Spook Hill.
I have just started a petition to show how many other people in this area are experiencing the same thing. You can see it here: http://tinyurl.com/mu5vwzs
