schools are big buildings which will defo block your signal, leaveing you with 3G or H

Because inside school building the signal is weak that's why

Schools are designed this way to keep you concentrating on lessons Smiley Happy

@mattysharp21

 

Steel frame buildings?

 

Masts operating at reduced power near the school to deal with 'parent paranoia'?

 

The former is more likely but the latter is not unknown. Masts operate three 'arrays' on antennae with a covergae of c.130 degrees to allow overlap.

 

Where there has been significant local opposition to a site operators can 'turn the wick down' to get one or more arrays operating at reduced power.

 

This satisfies the paranoid who fully forget that the phones pressed against their ;little darlings' heads have to operate at higher power to compensate.

 

However, signal disruption from a steel framework is far more liklely.

Is this just a issue with giffgaff as everyone else seems to get 3G/4G
