Why Does Poor Cellular Coverage Exist Today?

Cellular signals can be inhibited or blocked by trees, hills, building materials, and bad weather — regardless of the carrier you use.

Building Materials Block Reception

Obstruction from Tower

How common is poor in-building cellular Coverage?

Spotty indoor cellular coverage and dead zones are nothing new. In fact, many of us have experienced these firsthand as employees or customers.

 

Understanding the Problem: Check Your Signal Strength

Cell Phone Bars

The bars on your handset or tablet can be confusing as they do not always show raw signal strength, as one might expect. Almost all mobile manufacturers have their own algorithm to calculate things like signal strength, signal-to-noise ratio (SiNR), and channel loading among other things. The bars on the phone often paint an inaccurate picture, or do not tell the whole story.

Check Your Raw Signal Strength

Every mobile device has different algorithms for selecting bars and the method of putting your phone into Field Test Mode. Placing your phone into Field Test Mode will allow you to view raw signal strength. Raw signal is the only way to get true signal strength readings from most smartphones. Additionally, there are a variety of free applications that provide some deeper insight into the signal quality.

Deciphering What Raw Signal Strength Means to You

Keep in mind, a larger number is a stronger signal. For example, -75 is stronger than -100.. For example, if your signal strength jumps from -111 to -100 with Cel-Fi your signal is 10 times stronger than it was without Cel-Fi. The cellular scale is not 0 to 100, but the range of usable cellular LTE signal is -120dBm (just barely usable) to -60dBm (about the best you will find).

 

 

Our Goal is the Best Donor Signal

Some handsets may take signal quality into account when calculating the number of signal “bars” to display. This makes sense because signal quality drives data rates and the user experience more than raw received signal strength.
