What affects your mobile coverage?

Several things can affect coverage, including:

  • Proximity to a tower
  • Physical obstacles between you and the tower (eg, a big hill or building may interrupt the signal)
  • The materials your building is made out of (eg reinforced concrete walls will weaken the signal)
  • Congestion - where there is a high concentration of people (eg, music festival) all using their phones, coverage can be affected.
