Signal strength

Is -98 dBm 44 asu good signal strength? There are two Verizon towers near me. One is 1.6 miles from my house and the other is 2.6 miles from my house. Shouldn't my signal strength be at least decent?

A signal of -98 dBm isn't the best signal strength, but it isn't terrible either. The cellular signal strength is displayed in negative numbers so a signal of -86 dBm is better than -98 dBm and -98 dBm is better than -105 dBm. A signal around -105 dBm is a weak signal. The phone will register no signal is available at -120 dBm. 

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.
