I live in a rural area with poor DSL (1.32 mbps - Dn / .29 mbps - Up).
My home has a galvalume roof. I am using a MicroCell to help with my phone reception, but it is very poor and unreliable.
What I don't understand is my phone shows 5 bars of reception, yet the calls are choppy. Reception will drop off then return, so I might miss 50 percent of the conversation.
My MicroCell is positioned at the window beside my computer and AT&T (Netgear) router.
I use a Samsung, and my husband uses an LG.
* As a side note, outside the house the phone reception is not great but tolerable,
