Ideally, your mobile phone should always have the maximum signal strength and you should have no problems making a call, sending or receiving a text, browsing the net or using an app. Unfortunately, we don’t live in an ideal world and poor network reception or weak mobile signal is a reality that everyone has to deal with. Here we explore three technical and also practical reasons why mobile phone signal boosters are necessary.
• The first reason is limited or no coverage. Every major network has its countrywide infrastructure in place. However, the infrastructure doesn’t literally cover every nook and corner, the entire length and breadth of the country. There are pockets or areas where there is absolutely no coverage. These are known as black holes in networking jargon. Then there are areas where the coverage is nominal. You wouldn’t get strong signals everywhere you stand or sit. When you have no or limited coverage, there is no other option but to use mobile phone signal boosters. These are essentially amplifiers that allow your mobile to secure a better signal strength from adjoining areas. Think of boosters as a magnifier that will enhance the capacity of the receptors in your mobile phone.
• The second reason is fewer towers. Mobile network coverage is facilitated by satellite communicated, optic fiber or cabling and also towers. Satellites are used for long distance coverage, connecting one provider with another or the base in one province with another. Optical fiber networks are also used to establish coverage from one large region to another. Local network coverage is ensured by the towers. When there are fewer towers in an area, the coverage will be weak. There are only so many towers you can have in a given area so there isn’t much a particular mobile network or service provider can do about it. The only solution is to opt for mobile phone signal boosters.
• We have moved from first generation to fourth generation networks and we are at the anvil of fifth generation network coverage. Yet, our call quality and network coverage have not really been impeccable. This is primarily because of the growth of mobile users. With data coming into the picture, there is limited bandwidth despite phenomenal growth of available bandwidth and compression of voice and data packets. As more people use more data as well as voice, there will be bandwidth shortage and network problems will prevail.
