Improve Mobile Signal?

Posted 5th Mar
Any easy way to improve mobile reception?

At work I have terrible reception. It’s due to the material used for the roof of the building which apparently disrupts the signal. If I walk outside the building, I get full bars and excellent 4G speeds.

Inside the building I get 1 bar and if someone calls me they cant hear me.

I’m with BT, and have tried a Signal Assist Box but it wont work as my workplace have blocked the ports it uses.

One issue using these is they still expect you to have some sort of half decent signal up to 3 bars before fitting for it to work. I have one bar, sometimes no bars at my house so rely on wi-fi calling / volte calling.
Open the chat and have a word with them.. I just followed the link and they gave me a £590 option to boost the signal where I only currently get 0-1 bars outside.
Weve just bought one for work to cover 600sqm, says it boosts from 1 bar to 5 bars.
Is it the same for all networks?
Worth having a word with IT?
I was with bt about 2yr ago. Signal inside was always shockingly poor.
Moved to sky mobile which is basically O2. Never had any problems inside buildings yet.
