So, first off, this years Sasquatch was pretty fun and the lineup pretty good.
However, AT&T's service out there was lousy as hell. I know it was only for the fact that, they did not have any "base trucks" on site. I spoke to several people who use AT&T as their carrier and most of them, were very disgruntled about AT&T's lack of service for this festival. A lot of the same people I spoke to, said, they had been to, Coachella, and did not have any problems, only because At&T had base trucks out there, to handle the over load of cell traffic. A lot of my friends and I weren't able to hook up, unless we randomly ran into each other.
Anyway, if any who had similar problems with this issue, please write or call, AT&T and let them know. Maybe next year, they will have base trucks to handle the over flow of cell traffic. Besides, every one that has an iphone is under a two year contract. It's all about keeping their customers happy. And, this AT&T customer was not very happy, when I tried to use my cell, at this years Sasquatch.
PS. I don't have an iphone either. I have a Samsung.
I had next to no internet connectivity there and no signal as soon as I descended from the top of the hill towards the main stage at the amphitheater. My friend with Verizon had a strong signal anywhere he went. Definitely should pester AT&T about getting a truck out there next year.
I had friends that had the same problem but we had walkie talkies to suffice. Perhaps next year- in case they don't install any new towers for At&t... bring a couple pair of walkies so you don't have to worry about it, as long as you're on the same channel anyone who brings one can talk to you on that channel- it worked for us- we could even get reception back at camp too- so we could find our way back to the tent after the shows.
