If you are considering a move to a new cell phone service provider because of cell phone reception problems with your current company, there are Internet-based tools that can help you choose. Do you want to know how close your house or apartment is to the nearest cell phone tower? A website called Cellreception.com offers a directory to cell phone towers by city.
If you want to stay with your current cell phone service and are looking for a new place to live, consult a directory service such as the Verizon coverage locator at the company website to see what kind of cell phone reception you should expect in a new neighborhood. You can also call the company to ask if any new towers are planned for areas with low cell phone reception. It may not be necessary to switch companies if there are plans to improve the service in your area with new cell phone towers.
