Social Networking Apps Causing Cell Tower Signaling Issues
A recent survey found that 72% of Americans experience some form of dropped calls, and 32% experience dropped calls at least a few times per week or more. Like it or not, dropped calls and poor coverage are still a major problem for a large number of people. Carriers continue to add cell towers and expand coverage areas, this is not a problem that's going to go away soon. So what is there to do? Get a small cell (aka femtocell) or a cell phone booster for your house.
You can also, tell all of your friend's kids and neighbors using the same cell phone tower to stop using their chatty messaging apps. If you see the chart above it is looks like these apps are constantly pinging the cell towers which is causing people to drop calls. Would love additional feedback below.
Yes, dead zones or poor signal strength areas do cause many dropped calls. However, the majority of dropped calls are in areas near cell phone towers. The more smartphones pinging the tower the more dropped calls will persist.
