Do you think maybe when circuits are busy, the cell company gives
priority to outgoing calls and makes no effort to ring the 2nd party,
just offers to take a voicemail? That would cut in half the number of
connections that are made.
Opposite here. ATT can be used anywhere in the house or in myh
neighborhood. Verizon only worked at the end of the driveway. I found
that to be inconvenient at 10 PM when it is 4 degrees so I stuck with
ATT. Seems like they call have bad spots at some point.
In addition to the other reply, I have found that much depends on network
usage at any given time. You could be crowded out when everyone tries to
use a limited resource at the same time.
This is one reason carriers are in the process of adding WIFI coverage, in
addition to regular cell coverage. If you are within WIFI coverage, they
can route you through the wired system without having to use their precious
cell bandwidth (or even if you are nowhere near cell coverage).
Don't know Android - I'm not a big fan. Love my BlackBerry Q10 - loved
myBB Curve before that, and the 2 others before that. Before the
"smart phones" I had several Nokias that worked well.and a Motorola
that wasn't worth crap. They've all been on the Rogers (AT&T)
You'd be surprized how many cell phones you see in the bush in Africa
- where you could never get a land line.
I remember a photo from years ago, maybe in Wired magazine. It was
laying fiber optic in China. There was a line of workers as far as you
could see with the fiber optic cable on their shoulders. None of those
fancy spool trucks and power ditchers for those guys.
