Why Better Cell Signal Should Be On Your List of New Year's Resolutions This Year
If you have big goals for 2019, you’re not alone. We all have high hopes and specific accomplishments we set out to achieve with the coming of a new year. Whether your goals are personal or professional, you probably know well that technology plays an integral role in the ability to succeed these days.
Arguably the most integral factor in technology is connectivity. Without adequate cell signal, many of the technologies and applications you rely on to keep you productive and efficient can come to a screeching halt. Still, far too many individuals deal with poor or non-existent cell signal in their homes, places of business, and everywhere in between.
Newsflash: It’s 2019 and you don’t have to tolerate bad cell signal and dropped calls.
Some cellular consumers believe that the quality of their cell signal is simply a matter of the network carrier they’ve chosen, but as major carriers increasingly share bandwidth, this is no longer the case. In reality, most of the major carriers, including Sprint, Verizon, T-Mobile, and AT&T share towers and your signal can suffer in certain places regardless of the network you’re on. Luckily, there are solutions when it comes to boosting cell signal in remote areas, dense concrete structures or other places where signal may be weak or spotty.
We’ll talk more about those solutions, but first let’s look at some of the reasons a reliable cell signal will be integral to helping you reach your goals in 2019.
How reliable signal keeps you poised for success
We all carry out a number of tasks on our smartphones daily that keep us connected in both our business and personal lives. The majority of the time, these things happen seamlessly, thanks to strong cellular signal. Reliable cell signal allows you to make and receive calls, send and receive text messages and emails, upload and download files and photos, and even to make secure financial transactions.
When it comes to your personal life, reliable cell signal allows you to maintain relationships with friends and loved ones, despite time or distance via voice, text, and even video on our devices. It also allows you to manage your finances with online banking and make secure transactions online or in retail stores. It’s a well-documented fact that cellular trumps Wi-Fi when it comes to keeping your personal and financial information safe and secure. Gone are the days when these sensitive transactions could be trusted to Wi-Fi.
In your professional endeavors, connectivity can be even more important to success. Whether you’re the owner of a retail store, managing a residential apartment complex, or running a quaint bed and breakfast somewhere off the beaten path, your customers and patrons demand reliable, secure cellular service.
In the professional world, virtually no industry has been left untouched by the need for better connectivity, including healthcare and education. If you’re looking to boost your business in 2019, it’s important that you can connect with your customers and keep them connected, too.
Finding the solution to poor cell signal
If spotty service, dropped calls, or slow upload and download speeds have been plaguing you, it’s time to turn things around. Many people and businesses put off improving cell signal because they’ve either decided to accept poor signal as an annoying given, or they feel that improving cell signal would be too cost-prohibitive.
Although improving cell signal used to be a daunting — and expensive — task, things have changed. There are now options to improve connectivity within both residential and business, and even when traveling outdoors. Thanks to state-of-the-art cell signal amplification solutions, there is nothing stopping you from making 2019 the year you become more connected than ever.
One well known solution for solving cell signal issues is an active distributed antenna system, which requires invasive and costly installations of fiber-optic cables designed to improve signal for a single carrier network. Therefore, in addition to the high price tag, which ranges from $2-$10 per square foot, those single-carrier solutions don’t improve signal for everyone in a building.
But thanks to the evolution of passive distributed antenna systems (passive DAS), boosting cell signal has become affordable and attainable for everyone, no matter what the goal. These systems range from 30 cents to 70 cents per square foot. So whether you’re an entrepreneur working to build your business from a home office, or a manufacturing facility manager looking to meet a goal to increase productivity, cell signal boosters can help you succeed.
Passive DAS cell signal boosters rely on existing, strong cell signal, capturing that signal and amplifying it — by as much as 32 times — wherever you need it. This cell signal amplification can also be implemented zonally so that you can boost signal exactly where you need it the most. The solution is also carrier-agnostic, meaning it will improve signal for all users, regardless of the network they’re on.
