Let’s get a clearer understanding by studying these statistics.

As per Statista,  a staggering 273.8 million mobile phone users face some sort of cellular connectivity throughout a year. This got us thinking, is there any way to boost the network signal?  How will you explain that in 2020 you missed a work email, failed to text friends or colleagues, or could not surf the web because your cellular device or phone could not connect due to bad coverage? In this virtually engaged world, We surely cannot let a bad network stop us from making an urgent call or checking the latest social media post.

Is your phone or cellular device the reason for a bad network connection?

If you think your device is causing a bad Verizon signal simply restart the phone or reset your phone by taking out the battery and then inserting it back. If that does not solve the problem then the weak cell signal is not caused by your phone or your mobile carrier.

However, there are a few quick and easy solutions that you can do on your own to improve the Verizon coverage in your building or office.

Below is the article, we have provided a step by step guide on:

How to boost the Verizon signal in your building or your office.

What Blocks the Verizon signal in your building

The Verizon cell signal might be getting blocked or weakened by some of the strangest sources that you least expect. Sometimes, improving your cell signal can be as simple as by just opening a window.

Factors like nearby mountains, hills, or tall skyscrapers can obstruct the cell signal from entering your building. If your surroundings are crowded with many people on the same network it can cause a strain on bandwidth due to the excessive number of people using their cellular devices constantly.

Opt for WIFI Calling when the cell signal is weak 

WIFI Calling is available on Verizon and all the top mobile carriers. If you are facing a bad cell signal in your area where WIFI is available, then switch to wifi as it will massively improve your signal in an instant.

 WIFI Calling, however, requires an internet connection and it can use a strong internet bandwidth of your building. If you have several devices connected to the WIFI at once then it can do more bad than good.
