Cell coverage at the range
« on: September 20, 2017, 02:43:42 pm »
Hopefully enough people will read this.   Just checking on what others are seeing as far as coverage for Cell phones at the range.  I normally shoot range 3.   I am with Sprint and my signal is usually on the fringe between Sprint and Roaming with the occasional loss of signal.  Texting and Calls seem okay but any heavier usage is so slow to not be worth the trouble.    I have at times seen a 4G signal at the gate when driving in.

What do others see as well as who their Provider is.    AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon, etc

ATT sometimes OK, sometimes no signal.  Never a strong signal.

I have AT&T, I don't even try when I'm at the lower ranges. Line of sight with the cell tower has a lot to do with it. Foliage can disrupt also

I have never had any issues with coverage on my Verizon Samsung phone while at any of the lower ranges.

iPhone 6 on ATT.  I can make calls all day long from Range 4A.

I also have an I6 with AT&T.  Practically no coverage on Range 4B.

This is a real safety problem in case we need to call 911!!!!

There is a web site you can go to, Open Signal, and check out the cell coverage that people see on their phones.  If using the Open Signal App it will send coverage signals back to the web site and you can get a visual representation of the coverage area.   But you have to have the App on your phone active at the time.

From the map it looks like there is AT&T and Verizon coverage down Mt Olive Rd down to the turn off onto Mt Olive Cutoff with a little Verizon coverage up slightly on Mt Olive Cutoff when heading to the range.    No signal readings at the range however.   Need user input.
