Abstract
With every passing day, the importance and number of people that uses data services experiences a geometrical growth. From product survey and testing, marketing and advertisement of products, online sales and purchase of products, execution of employee training and development programs, multimedia conferencing, advance research programs and the likes, the use of Long Term Evolution (LTE) technology has no limit. But all these afore-mentioned merits are marred by poor network signal quality which is an integral part in measuring the network Quality of Service (QoS). To improve the network signal quality using block call allocation, data traffic sessions (drive test) were conducted in Port-Harcourt cluster for the existing LTE networks daily for twelve (12) weeks using a pre-defined test route. Result showed a network signal quality improvement of 13.02% and 25.87% for 1 and 2 units rise in the allocated Resource Blocks (RBs) respectively.
