How Does Weather Affect My Cell Signal?

Environment

  • Republic Wireless phones

Answer

Water can reflect or refract the cell signal from the towers; this can scatter, obscure, or lengthen the cell signal. Ice can do the same thing but have smaller affect than water. The affect this has on your cell signal varies based on the cell signal frequency and the intensity of the weather conditions.
