It would be fantastic if you could look into boosting the cell phone signal in the library buildings by installing some antennas. If someone were to call a library patron for an important reason, the patron may miss the call if his/her phone had no signal at the time. Also, having a strong signal indoors helps to avoid the situation in which a patron's cell phone runs out of battery because it had to transmit at a very high power to get through the Regenstein's walls. Thanks!
We admit the cellphone signal in the Reg is less than ideal (regardless of provider). Although it's technically feasible to install internal antennas, there is a cost involved for the Library -- we've heard everything from a few hundred for a booster to tens of thousands of dollars.
Further, we'd strongly prefer people limit cell phone use to the first floor and the A-Level, our designated cell phone zones. Which leads us in the Suggestions Office to wonder -- is it really such a bad thing that our cell phones don't work well elsewhere in the Reg?
(UPDATE: We changed this post slightly -- our original language noted that IT Services would be installing the antennas and that they might be reluctant to do this work. Our colleagues over in IT Services don't really have a position one way or the other on this project, and, if we asked them, would perform the installation quickly and professionally....but we are hesitating to ask, for the reasons described above.)
