Comment Re:Houses with builtin Faraday cages (Score 1) 243

hedronist is 100% right.

My house was built in 1953 and is made of brick with plaster walls. Some of the walks have chipped or cracked over the years and underneath the plaster surface is a metallic mesh.

When I'm outside my home my signal is a perfect 4 bars. The minute I step inside I drop to "No Service".

WiFi has problems too and it's transmitting within the house about 2 rooms away.

I wish there was a WiFi solution outside of microwave...
