Phone coverage: Hiller Highlands

Postby Guest Justine tenZeldam » Tue Jul 16, 2013 9:13 am

Any idea how good the coverage is over there? I’m at E. 31st & 14th Ave, near Highland Hospital (Oakland CA 94602). Last mobile hot spot didn’t work. AT&T was garbage, even on their own telephone lines! Would love to go with a local firm like Sonic, rather than Comcast, but coverage AND reliability are very important of course. Feel free to text me too 510-230-8270

That area is covered by the Oakland Fruitvale CO, which is located at 2112 Fruitvale Ave (about two blocks away from Foothill Blvd). That’s a little over a mile away from Highland Hospital as the crow flies, but phone wires go along rights-of-way that zig-zag, and that distance can easily double. Figure somewhere between 7K to 10K feet.If you go through the sign-up process, you’ll get AT&T’s estimate of the wireline distance. You can then check the scatter plot that shows others’ experience with speed based on distance.
