1x or 3G next to satellite?

I just switched to Verizon yesterday and there is only one bar for satellite and the internet is not loading at all at work. There is 1X or 3G next to it but the phone barely connects to internet. When I was with other phone company, I had full network where I sit. The zip code is 60056-2151. Please let me know if you can do something about this, because I am at work most of the day and need to have full network and satellite.

Thanks

Priyanka89,

Hearing about what is going on with your internet on your phone has us very worried. That zip code should have full 4G LTE coverage. How is your internet outside of work and which make/model phone do you have?

That's a bit odd, Priyanka89! We show this area should have 4G coverage. Do you know anyone else with Verizon in this area? Does their service work better, or do they have these same issues?

Thank you,

Hello

I just asked couple of people in the building with Verizon and they said they do not get 4G network here. One also said it drains the battery so much because it is constantly searching for 4G.

Thanks for checking Priyanka89. That is odd, but we can figure this out. Please make sure LTE is enabled in Settings>Cellular. Have you been able to use 4G LTE at all? Outside, inside, at any location? Did you have this problem with your previous phone?

Hi

Yes I have been able to use 4g LTE in other locations and at home when I'm not using Wi-Fi

Thanks for clarifying. So it sounds as though there is moderate to no coverage inside the work place. Unfortunately, we are not able to guarantee coverage indoors since there may be building materials or equipment that may be affecting the tower strength.
We have some employers that have found the Network Extender http://bit.ly/Pkrl8a beneficial.
