Cell service on campus: Which provider is best?

UVU Review editors set out to find which cell phone provider is the best, and why coverage is so limited in certain areas on campus KresLynn Knouse | Features Editor | @kreslynn   Every phone service provider claims to be the best, but when it comes to finding a signal on campus it may seem like there’s no clear winner.
