Using a Cell Tower Locator Near You

There are many apps and websites you can find from a simple Google search that claim they can help you find a cell tower near you, but figuring out which options are optimized for smooth user experiences can be tricky. Here is SIMETRY’s recommendation for a web-based locator.

  • Taking the top spot is easily CellMapper.net. This site requires basic information around your chosen carrier, your location via zip code and your network speed. This simple query results in defined and easy to understand results that are updated regularly.

 

Simply Update Your Device to Find Cell Towers Near You

If you’re having signal issues, it’s always a good place to start by turning on and off your cellular device. Once the device is back up and running you can also disconnect your device by toggling the Airplane Mode button in your settings, waiting a few seconds and then toggling it back off to reconnect. If you are still struggling with your connection but don’t have time to search through the web or an app, there’s a solution you can use often as a workaround for finding a cell tower. Go into your device’s “settings” > “general” > “about” if you see an option for an update through your carrier, go ahead and opt-in, as this will be the most up to date version through your provider.

 

Use a Signal Meter To Find a Cell Tower Near You.

This is an excellent option if you’re on the professional side of the Telecom industry. This works for all carrier towers including Verizon, Sprint, AT&T, T-Mobile. The signal Meter itself is simply a handheld device that manually searches the nearest directions and locations within a certain radius. Although this isn’t necessarily the best option for everyone, this is a sure-fire way of knowing that you have received an accurate signal and a cell tower near you.
