AT&T 3G coverage good in central Asheville, but very spotty in other areas. In north Asheville near Beaver Lake my phone would switch from 3G network to Edge network every time I would pick-up the phone. Same thing would happen in Woodfin. I hope they fix this.

I have the unique situation of owning both the ATT Aircard and Verizon Aircard for my laptop. I have been running speed tests through WNC, ETN, WSC and GA. Verizon claims to have most coverage (true) and ATT claims to have fastest speed which seems to be true. In over (20) places where I tested the ATT 3G was faster. I just tested here in Fletcher and this is it! ATT Aircard 3G with only one bar is: 2094 download / 1125 upload and Verizon with four bars is 1289 download / 280 upload. ATT upload speed seems to be consistently about four times faster in the areas I travel to. I can say that the 2094 ATT 3G speed in Fletcher is also very consistent with ATL, GSP and other large cities I've tested. I'm pleased and glad I was patient to wait so long for the ATT service upgrade. Bluezkat

Actually, "it" IS a computer and when we pay thousands of dollars per year for data services we are allowed to be picky about our coverage.

If you prefer to use only your phone (as a phone), obviously there really is nothing you have to offer in a thread about the DATA NETWORK in our area.

Thank you for your concern though.

Well put Trip.

I pay $ 77 per month for my iPhone + DATA PACKAGE. I can now use my "data" portion of that $77. I can also now cancel my High Speed Internet at home.

I love my SMART PHONE!!!

It's now 2012 and I just moved to this area and AT&T reception and 3G STILL suck!!!! The tower it locates me with is Biltmore Forest, but I live off of Hendersonville rd. which is in Asheville... If they added 75 cell towers here in Asheville then the reception should be amazing, I'm very dissapointed!!!!:/
