Default Improving reception?

Please Login to Remove!

My company subscribed to T-Mobile. Bad choice. We're all having trouble with reception from our homes. I'm on the edge of what T-Mobile defines as a "fair" reception area, which is interestingly enough, only a step above no service. So in other words, "fair" = "poor." Is there anything I can do to improve the reception?

Contact T-Mobile ? if you got enough subscribers maybe they'll add a tower there..
These networks are always upgrading and buying new stuff to improve there coverage area.

Yes, call your carrier. Or better yet, get whoever deals with your carrier to call their account manager and get the right person to speak to.

I had this problem about 8 or 9 years ago but it was driving down the highway to work and back where I got frequent drop outs. One day the carrier called me to check on my serivce levels and I complained about this. Next thing I knew, towers were going up around this highway and everything was fixed. 8 months later I got a follow up phone call from the carrier who wanted to make sure everything was to my satisifaction now...
