More and more households are hanging up on landline phones, and instead, adopting cell phones for their primary source for getting in touch.
While there are more cell towers and cell phones than ever before, Lexington is among the worst places for cell phone reception woes.
"Campus, White Hall, any place that has a large number of people trying to use their cell phones which is normal I guess," said UK student Will Caye.
"The biggest thing for me is definitely tailgates and Keeneland time, trying to get texts to your friends is just awful," Stephen Stearman added.
A new study published by Time magazine names Lexington the 9th worst city for lack of cell phone reception.
"Its frustrating," said Stearman.
With 31.5 percent of Kentucky adults only having cell phones, we're already one of the states with the greatest percentage of people hanging up on landline phones.
We spoke to a representative with Verizon who provided a little insight as to why it can be harder to get that strong signal.
She likened cell phone networks to a major road. As more people try to get on, the slower it runs, until it ultimately jams up.
And not everybody we spoke to has noticed problems.
"I haven't really noticed many dead spots around the city, just in my classes and sometimes in my dorm room, don't really get much service at all," said UK freshman Zachary Bricking.
"I haven't noticed any. I always get my texts, my phone calls and everything. Even when I'm in class," said Travis Combs.
