We’ve all struggled with poor cell phone service in large buildings, frequently with our face pressed to the window trying to catch a bar. The service issue typically isn’t with the carrier, but with the obstructions within a building or neighboring buildings. Given today’s mobile workforce where we’re using our devices for a lot more than making calls, tenants should consider this issue before renewing a lease or looking for new space. Forward thinking landlords are also concerned about this issue as they know it will affect the value of their property, which is based upon a well-occupied building. In this post, I outline the trends behind the increasing demand of cell service, its impact to tenants, how some landlords are addressing this issue and what tenants should be doing.
