    When is or is At&t going to extend service to the Fallon,Nv area? Currently Verizon, Sprint, Boost Mobile are the only carriers that offer service in this area. I moved here from Ohio & had to switch from At&t to Verizon. With the Topgun Naval Airbase here you would think they would want service here since a lot of people that got stationed there had At&t. If you drive about 15-20 miles towards Reno you can get service.

    AT&T has partner/roaming coverage in Fallon, though they don’t have their own cell sites. They may not have licenses to operate in Fallon.

    Yes! I noticed the lack of coverage from at&t when I was going thru Fallon. At&t works fine where the two highway 50s (Carson and Reno highways)intersect,just west of Fallon. That is a rotten shame!
