Level 1: Cadet


my reception was very good 4years ago now it is very bad as I have to walk around my house and also outside most of the time to get a signal. Telstra used to be the one provider to use but now I am about to check elsewhere to try and find something that might work.

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you

Re: reception

I am told this area is not good, but why after all these years the reception is not as good as it was, I thought you had improved and made things better but the progress you has not improved my reception

Re: reception

Good 4 years ago, now bad? Any chance that you are using device that is not compatible with new bands and was using something that was dropped? Can you provide more details?
