SO MANY DROPPED CALLS … GOV’T LOOKING INTO FIXING THIS PROBLEM

Calls get dropped or blocked if there is too little spectrum for the number of subscribers, because the calls exceed the spectrum’s carrying capacity. Users get good reception if they are near towers, but if other towers are too close, interference from signals from those towers can reduce the capacity of available spectrum, and reception may also be noisy. The reasons are many: Operators say it’s because of the closure and shortage of cell towers, and too little spectrum. Public opinion is conflicted, wanting better services at low prices, fearful of the hazard of more towers, while also wanting operators to pay dearly for spectrum through auctions. Now the Govt is looking to work with industry to drastically reduce this – a big source of frustration.
