UIT would like to remind you that you can get better cell coverage on campus if you enable cellular calling over Wi-Fi.  All major carriers like Verizon, ATT, T-Mobile offer cellular calling over Wi-Fi. This improves the cellular call quality of your devices when in buildings. Radio frequencies cannot always penetrate manmade objects or in areas where there is no cellular coverage.
