    How close is your nearest cell tower and how does it affect your service??

    I've been using this app called 'Cell Tower Locator' and it says the nearest tower is about 6 miles from my home. I consistently get 3G 5-6 bars normally.

    But at my other residence, the nearest tower is about 8 miles away but I get mostly 1X and 3-4 bars. Data only works maybe 50% of the time.

    Why is this????

    Well for one it's further away. It could be stuff is blocking the signal. Tall trees etc.
