Causes of poor coverage

It is good for you to know the different causes of this problem, so that you can identify which one is wreaking havoc in your case and know if it is something that you can solve by your own means or if it is due to some external factor.

Your telephone operator’s signal is not reaching your area.

It is very common for large operators to have very limited coverage areas when it comes to providing internet or wifi in mountainous areas or areas far from large cities. Whether you are a resident or on holiday in a small town, away from the big cities, it is ideal to seek a tariff from a local installer. They are the ones who best know the orography of the area and who can best guide you as to which internet service and fibre optic tariff is best for you.

Telephone antenna deficiency

In today’s modern phones, design considerations have become a priority for manufacturers, downplaying the importance of improving smartphone signal receiving antenna technology, making it much more difficult for them to get good coverage in certain areas.

Distance between the device and the antenna

One of the main reasons for coverage problems is that the further away your phone is from the operator’s antenna, the lower the strength of the coverage received by the device. If you are in a sparsely populated area or a small town, you should know that smartphones are generally meant to be in areas such as cities or larger towns, where carriers have more antennas set up in the area, which results in better coverage.

Household infrastructure

As strange as it may sound, the materials your home’s walls and ceiling are made of can get in the way of coverage in your home, causing poor coverage. If placing your phone in a certain spot at a higher point gives you better coverage, or placing it in a window or outside the house gives you better coverage, then the problem may be that the walls and ceiling of your house are made of a very thick and dense material.

How can I improve my coverage?

Regardless of the cause, the question that arises is how can I improve my coverage? The truth is that this is possible by applying several interesting tips and tricks.
  • Use web services that let you know how far away you are from the tower that provides coverage for your phone, so you know where the signal is coming from and can more easily identify which locations have better signal reception.
  • It is a good idea to remove your phone case from time to time, as depending on the thickness and material of the case, it can repel the coating.
  • A viable option is to use a signal booster in your home to achieve better coverage.
  • You can try varying between 3G, 4G and 5G signal to see which works best for you.
  • Try to keep your phone’s battery level high, as low battery may affect signal reception.
