Rural Eastern Oregon Cell Service Shrinking
This is more of a comment than a question. This past November we were on our annual elk hunt to eastern Oregon. To my surprise when we arrived at our camping location (very high up on a hill) I had no cell phone service, the same location that has had At&t cell service for many, many years. At first I thought there was something wrong with my phone, I even did a hard reset but still nothing. Fortunately the other (4) people in our group have Verizon cell phones and theirs were working fine. So I spent the next week using their Verizon phones if needed. This was pretty disappointing to say the least. I have been an At&t customer for over 20 years but now I am considering changing to Verizon. In looking at the coverage maps it appears that eastern Oregon At&t coverage is shrinking and Verizon is getting stronger. If you stay in the larger towns such at John Day, Prineville, etc...the At&t signal is great but get out of town and there is nothing.
