Thanks for the info. My app is used in rural and areas with low connectivity and needs to upload a lot of data. I was just looking to get an idea if they are having signal issues or some other kind of issue. My current MO is to get the GPS location then look it up on OpenSignalMaps, and deduce what their signal should be. It's not a complete database. So I was hoping the signal info could also be used to trigger an attempt when it got a "good enough" signal.
