Did you know that low battery doesn’t just mean you could run out of juice at any moment, but that you could experience reduced mobile signal too? As your battery lowers, so does the device’s capability to maintain a signal.
You won’t be surprised to hear that the further you are from a signal tower, the weaker the mobile signal to your device. As you’d expect, it’s a much more common problem in the countryside and less urban areas.
The more people that are competing for a slice of 3G or 4G from the nearest signal tower, the less likely you are to get a good connection. If you’ve ever been to a festival, you’ve probably noticed this phenomenon already.
And in the era of the pandemic, you might have experienced the effects of a congested network as more people kick back with Netflix too!
There are all sorts of things that can get in the way of you getting good mobile signal. For example, trees, hills, tall buildings and anything else that can interrupt the direct line of sight between you and the nearest cell tower; all of which weaken your connection.
