Using the Open Signal Application (Android) I can see which tower I am connecting to, but I know I can connect to towers closer (because I have previously). Currently I am running around -116dB signal which is enough to make calls and data but the battery on my device drains faster than it should.
Is there anyway to force the phone (Nexus 6) to connect to specific towers? A restart of the phone did not help. forcing it to 3G only did not help either (It connects to different towers but the signal is not much better -95dB)
