Reader Question – What Cell Phone and Internet Provider?

A Crozetian asks:

I would like to know what Internet provider and also what cell phone service folks in the Emerald Ridge/Saddle Hollow area use, especially those with smart phones.

This is a timely email, as this comment was just posted on a post from January of last year:

So I guess I can deduce from what everyone has written above is that go with Direct TV? We are moving to the area and are reviewing our options. Does anyone have any recommendations for phone/internet bundles? Embarq seemed a little steep. Does anyone know if the cell phone reception for Sprint works well in the area?

Thank you! Very soon to be Crozet resident!

So … Crozetians – what are the best internet and cell phone providers?

I use Verizon (they have the best coverage in the Crozet/Charlottesville/Central Virginia area) and Comcast (who are mostly reliable but insanely, unnecessarily and unfortunately expensive).
