Darien Connects When it Comes to Cell Phones

Rikki Reitz and Hannah Artman said they never have any problems when they use their T-Mobile cell phones to make calls in Darien. Many of their friends agreed that they can stay in constant communication with each other when in town without having to worry about dropped calls.

"When I'm outside in public areas, I never have any problem," said Brittany McIntyre, one of their friends. However, McIntyre said she has trouble when inside her house in the Noroton Bay area, though she thinks that might be because her house is out on the waterfront. "Inside my house it sucks, but outside anywhere else it works just fine," she said.

Overall, Darien residents agreed that cell phone coverage is good in town regardless of the carrier. According to the Connecticut Citing Council , Darien has four cell phone towers: on Ledge Road, on Mechanic Street, at the Noroton Heights Railroad Station and off West Avenue.

Scott Payne, a businessman who commutes to New Yor City, said he never has problems with his T-Mobile phone. "It never drops calls," he said. Payne said his son has an AT&T iPhone, which will occasionally drop calls. "I think that AT&T's network gets overloaded sometimes and will drop calls in Darien."

Other AT&T customers in Darien said they occasionally have dropped calls, but it happens rarely and overall they are happy with their service. Even in heavily wooded areas, such as Tokeneke, Darienites with AT&T say that cell phone reception has never been a big issue.

Sarah Garcia said she has a Verizon LG phone. "It's very good. I don't have any dropped calls, and I always have reception in town." Garcia, who is from Mexico, said she uses it often to call family and friends. "I can make international calls and messages, and it's always very clear."
