Dropped calls, line static, poor internet connectivity and slow downloads. Sound familiar? Then you’re most likely a victim of a poor signal.
The problem is worse if you’re a business owner, or perhaps own an apartment building. In the former case, reception problems would make your business lag due to limited connectivity. In the latter case, you may not be able to get tenants – people just wouldn’t want to live at a place where communication problems linger.
So you may be wondering how to fix this annoying problem. We’ll get to that; but before we do, let’s explore the factors that may be causing these signal issues.
As the number of cell phone users increases so does the demand for more comprehensive coverage. Cities are ever growing, and service carriers are scrambling to put up more towers to provide service to everyone.
Unfortunately the need for cell phone service is rising faster than the rate at which towers can be put up.
The next time you visit your carrier’s store, look for a big colorful map somewhere on the wall. This map shows those areas that fall under the coverage provided by your service provider. You will, of course, see some areas that fall outside of coverage; these areas are called dead spots – regions where you’ll be pointlessly waving around your phone in the air, trying to catch a bar or two.
Dead zones occur whenever there is any kind of obstruction between the user and the cell phone tower or a lack of towers in general.
Obstructions can range from being natural to man-made. If it’s in the way, it’s not doing your signal any favors.
Natural obstructions include mountains, hills or even excessive foliage. Man-made obstructions include buildings, walls and other metal or concrete structures as well as any insulation. Tinted windows have also been known to diminish signal strength.

Your phone may be too weak to pick up cell phone signals, but boosters aren’t. They receive signals from the towers, then amplify and rebroadcast them across an area of up to 10,000 square feet. The vast coverage makes this device excellent for small and large offices alike – as well as apartment buildings.
