We’ve all been there, at one point, regardless of your mobile phone you still lose connectivity. Nowadays, whether you are connecting thru wifi or using your cellular data, your internet connectivity can still get affected. Though technology has dramatically improved, there are still areas in our office, at home or while driving that we sometimes lose data connectivity. While this is a known issue, these are the things that we can do to improve data connectivity:
- Remove Your Phone Case - If you own a Nokia phone before, you will notice that the antenna was poking out for it to get the best signal. To aesthetically resolve that, smartphones now have a built-in antenna. As with all signal based devices, any tall building, trees, bushes, thick walls, and your phone case can affect your mobile phone’s ability to get a better signal reception. Poorly manufactured phone cases block signal, if you continually experience connectivity or signal issues, maybe try removing the phone case, and that will improve your phone’s connectivity.
- Reposition your Phone - If you are using your mobile phone inside the car, any change in position or location will affect cellular coverage. There might be areas where the signal is at its strongest, and there will also be areas where there is weak or no signal at all. There’s not a lot that we can do about that, but it may help to put your phone on the dashboard, that way it can quickly get signal, make sure it’s not obstructing your view while driving.
- Mobile Phone Signal Booster - If you are experiencing dropped calls, poor voice quality, slow internet, stuck text messages & email And still-connecting or endless loading screens, then it means that you have a weak cell phone signal. If removing your phone case and repositioning your phone doesn’t work, you can try using signal boosters. Cell phone signal boosters take existing cellular signal from the outside (no matter how weak) and amplify 3G & 4G LTE signal up to 32X. Signal booster improve the quality of the external signal and are great at bypassing internal & external obstructions like tall buildings. Unless you're living in an extremely remote area that’s a different story.
- 3G or 4G Mobile Network - With the launch of the 4G network, it promised to be faster; it has more comprehensive coverage, more secured, increased bandwidth which is good for data transfers and affordable. A customer using 4G can enjoy uninterrupted connectivity like video chats. However, being that 4G is relatively new, it also means that it has limited coverage, unlike its 3G counterpart. By using 3G, it may be a bit slower, but you can be assured that you will have a more stable connection.
- Upgrade your phone - Every year mobile phone manufacturers keep making their phone much better, faster and stronger regarding signal reception. It is vital that if you are using your mobile phone for work and to ensure that is not only the software update but also the hardware.
- Change Network Carriers - If all else fails, maybe a change in mobile perspective might help as each mobile carrier have their strengths and weaknesses. Big mobile carriers tend to have a stronger signal, but congested network which can still result in poor reception or you can try a small mobile carrier company with lesser congestion and faster connectivity.
