BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - A study conducted by opensignal.com found that Bakersfield has almost 40 percent worse service than the average U.S. city and is 25 percent worse than the worldwide average.
The signal map on opensignal shows very little service in that area and although there are several towers in town, theres a gap of that carriers towers in the Rosedale neighborhood.
23ABC spoke with a representative from Verizon today that explained tower location is a factor in cell phone signal but if the carrier has a back up cell site in case one is damaged and if they have up to date coverage and accessibility to 4G LTE the service should be better.
