Hello there. 

 

Just Half a year ago moved to a new place. I have noticed that reception was very low but still ok to receive/make calls. 

 

After 4 Month reception became worse because new houses was build around quickly (New townhouse area) 1-2 Level houses, and i have 1 level house. 

 

Currenlty i have signal level sits on -131 dBm 10 asu. And as i work from home sometimes, sometimes nobody can reach me or i receiving text of miss calls. Because of my work i respond on calls 24/7 and friqently receive calls from contractors and etc. 

 

Phone is Galaxy S8+   Previous one Galaxy S5 had same kind of signal level. (LG G6 almost didnt work at all)

 

House is wooden btw. 

 

 

 

Is it any way to solve it? Any sort of repeater i can install?  I just need solid voice connectivity. Data dont worry me since i have wifi at home (Spark as well). 

 

 

 

Thank you!

 

Kir.





Sorry about my English guys :>

You need a Sure Signal unit like vodafone offer issue is Spark do not offer them

You can get an official RF amplifier but they are about $1000

Have dug into this one a bit, Kirdog is in one of the new building areas..

 

 

 

cell towers are arranged ideally for how the area used to be very low volume.

 

4G coverage is great, 3G directional towers close all bend around the location.

 

 

 

bring on VoLTE eh ;)

 

looking further into the system..
