Although you may have a cellular signal on your phone, it is likely that WhatsApp, Facebook and, in general, apps that use mobile data in Ecuador will not work well. This not only affects the connectivity but also the battery of the phone. It is not strange that the cell phone discharges faster than usual due to power outages in the country..

The problem of blackouts in Ecuador is also affecting cellular operators . Although these may have power generators, perhaps not all their antennas have this backup when the power goes out. When power outages are for long periods or happen unexpectedly, as was the case at the beginning of these mandatory rationings, battery backups may not be fully charged to power cell towers during the power outage. Obviously, without properly functioning towers, phones will have problems connecting to the Internet.

Cellular signal deterioration is at best. Messages take a while to send, pages to load, but they finally do. However, there are cases where there is definitely no Internet signal and no matter how many attempts you make, you will not be able to connect. The best thing to do in this case is to try another operator's chip in the case of a multi-SIM cell phone, or go to another place where the phone can connect to the network. Don't trust the signal that the phone shows , because it can be misleading in this particular situation..

Before the power goes out in your house, you should make sure you charge your cell phone well , because otherwise you may run out of battery during the day. It's happened to me a couple of times already. The battery wears out faster when there is not enough cellular signal in the area. The device can be put into a more thorough search or scan mode , trying to pick up the best available signal to connect. If this is your case, you probably want to disable mobile data to alleviate this extra battery drain.
