The building or vehicle you’re located in could be causing cell signal issues. When you need to step outside of your office, home, or vehicle to accomplish tasks on your device, you know that the materials your shelter or vehicle was constructed with are to blame.
Parking garages are made from thick, solid cement walls that interfere with signal transmission. Sheet metal, concrete, brick, block, glass, and wire mesh used in construction are obvious culprits, but water fixtures like pipes or waterfalls, or tile roofs and energy-efficient coatings can also be at play. Small rooms or rooms with too many electronics can be disruptive. Commercial buildings and campuses are susceptible to poor cell phone signal strength because of the materials used in construction.
