Problem: Weak Cell Phone Signals In CondosWritten by Eric Skicki Wednesday, July 4th, 2012
One of the most common overlooked negatives of living in a condo is the possibility of having a weak cell phone reception signal. The reason that I call it a “negative” is because unlike houses condos are known to have thick concrete walls which can at times prevent your cellular phone from operating properly inside. This can include users experiencing dropped calls, poor signal reception or dead zones. If cell phone reception is a priority to you, I would strongly suggest taking your cell phone with you when viewing condos for sale. By doing so you can make sure that the condo you are planning to purchase can provide adequate cell phone coverage.
I was experiencing cell phone connection issues in my own Square One condo (Skymark West) so, I decided to dig a little deeper, and try to locate the source of the problem and find a reasonable solution. What I found out is as follows: cell phone reception is dependent upon the distance and projectile signal path to the nearest cell towers, carrier and plan, carrier load, weather conditions and finally the phone model itself.
