Cell phone reception in Provincetown during the summer?

Cell phone reception in Provincetown during the summer?

I'm wondering what the cell phone reception is in Ptown for the summer. Specifically, I'm coming from Canada and I'm wondering if there is any difference between using my Rogers plan or getting a US sim card to use Roam Mobility (t mobile).

Thanks for any replies.

Cell phone reception is fine, but I can' advise you on how your Canadian phone plan will work. Check with them?

I agree. I had problems many (15+) years ago with my old carrier in Ptown as well as at home near Boston. Since switching to Verizon, no issues whatsoever.

I use a $10 Tracfone when in Provincetown and I never have any problems.

We also have Verizon ... we usually stay in the west end, end of Bradford; reception is spotty, nothing inside and nothing at herring cove or race point on the beach or trails.

Yes reception on beaches is spotty. I had issues at Duxbury beach last weekend which surprised me since we were in site of many homes.
