Went up to Lake Placid last weekend. Once we got into the Adirondack Park
east of Watertown, reception was hit or miss... you got a signal in
populated areas and no signal in unpopulated areas. Obviously the cell
companies aren't going to provide a signal for the bears and deer where
there's practically zero population. There's also environmental/zoning
issues up there as well preventing towers from going up.
We were camping at the Adirondack Loj and we had no signal there until we
drove 5 minutes or so towards Lake Placid.
My friends with Cingular got similar results.
Otherwise, here in the Rochester area, reception is fairly solid - even when
I go down to Hornell and other places in the region that's cow country.
