Coverage in Portland Oregon . . . ? Better or Worse than VZW?

by sdgmcdon    May 30, 2008, 1:45 PM

My wife and I are Realtors in Portland Oregon, top notch coverage for us is an absolute MUST.

I had Sprint YEARS ago when I was traveling the country a lot, at that time they were the best for traveling as you could always rely on getting good signal at airports and in large cities. But in semi-rural and even some residential areas, forget about it . . . no signal.

Now being firmly planted in Portland Oregon we've found in the last few years that VZW has the best coverage, but their pricing is starting to wear on our nerves. We're looking at the all you can eat voice, data & text plans. VZW = $150/month each. Sprint is $100/month each...Quick $100/month savings but the question is COVERAGE.

I have zero interest in the "VZW sucks!" or "Sprint sucks!" crowds opinion, I'm looking for real experience & opinions; will we notice a significant difference in coverage going from VZW to Sprint? Again we go from Urban, to residential, to semi-rural to REALLY rural at all points throughout a week on both the east, west, south & north sides, we need really solid coverage.

Thanks in advance for any and all opinions/responses!
