In April 2017, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) began a process aimed at removing barriers to wireless infrastructure deployment across the country, including improving distributed antenna system regulations.

That’s great news for everyone from municipalities to small businesses as they look at meeting the ever-growing demands of today’s connected consumers, who have little patience for poor connectivity, as well as public safety users.

Let’s take a closer look at the FCC’s efforts to improve distributed antenna system regulations.

Connectivity problems, from cell phone dead zones, unreliable two-way radio coverage, spotty WiFi coverage – or a combination of all three – aren’t just bad for business and productivity, for public safety users, they can be downright dangerous.

If you’re facing communications challenges, it can feel as if you’re fighting a losing battle, but there are some secret – and not-so-secret – weapons you can use to improve performance, even in the most stubborn spots.

Here’s an overview of why poor in-building connectivity happens and how to fix it.

Spotty cell phone coverage and unreliable radio connectivity have never been good things, but there was a time when people used their devices for less and were more tolerant of gaps in performance. 

But as cell phones have replaced landlines and radios continue to replace cell phones, the bar has been raised on the expectation for connecting quickly and seamlessly. Add to that the explosive growth in data services such as text messaging and streaming, and it’s enough to put a strain on even the most sophisticated system.

The good news is that you don’t have to just live with poor in-building connectivity, and here we’ll take a look at some of the most effective options for how to improve cell phone coverage and radio range.
