I live in Ohio, zip code 44904 and work in 44903, We switched a while ago have have been very frustrated with the coverage. I have to literally step outside my work to try and send/receive phone calls and texts. Its 2019, this is what I would have expected in 2000. Ive had Sprint, and Verizon and both were amazing. Is there any resolution to getting the signal boosted? or any future plans to add towers?

I know several people who work in office buildings or assembly plants and have problems with cell phone coverage. From what I know, the two biggest reasons for poor connections are distance from a tower and structural materials weakening (and sometimes blocking) the signals from the cell phone towers. Every time your cell signal has to pass through a wall, glass, or any other barrier, it's likely the signal is being reduced. If you're far from a cell tower to begin with, that likely explains your problems. A cell phone booster is an ideal way to fix it, but if your employer won't do so (or if you work in a heavily regulated agency such as a government one), you can try some quick-fixes such as switching your phone from airplane mode and back. There's a site called signalbooster.com that has some good articles on fixing signals (without and with a booster). I've used some of their hints and it actually helps. They also talk about scams to avoid too that say they'll fix the signal, but are a waste of money.
