Pathetic Internet speed

reception difficulties for a newly purchased BOOST phone

I purchased two BOOST phones on 07/17/2015 from ONE Wireless located at 1950 Broadway in Lorain, Ohio. Both phones were paid for in full, activated, and the service was paid for each phone for the next six months.

The issue is that I specifically asked the sales persons about the quality of this particular device's reception. The answer was that it was 'very good'. Since using my phone and my friend also using his phone over the last 24 hours, we have experienced poor, fading, reception. We tested the reception in several geographic locations and are very disappointed with the unsatisfactory quality of reception. My friend went to speak with the people at the store and they were rude and unwilling to offer a solution.

DVI cable is interfering with cell phone signal

A while back I ran into a weird EMI interference issue between my cell phone and a new custom built PC inside of a Cooler Master CM690 KKN2 case. When the PC booted to Windows calls would drop on all cell phones nearby, whether 3G, LTE, on Verizon or AT&T and they could not connect to any mobile networks. (Nobody in my office has T-Mobile, so we don’t know if they would have been affected too)

I spent a lot of time googling and couldn’t find any solutions. I eventually figured out what was causing it and wanted to post something here in case others are having the same issue. I assumed the high airflow case meant it was poorly shielding EMI from inside the case. It also has a painted interior and I don’t think the shell was grounded...
