Abstract. The selection of cell tower locations is an essential step in designing any cellular system network. The sites are selecting according to the specifications of that system. In addition, each cellular system has optimal geographic locations appropriate to the frequency and design of that system. For example, the sites of the second-generation (2nd G) system towers may not be compatible with the sites of the fourth generation (4th G) system towers for long-term evaluations (LTE) technology in terms of design and location. However, most companies that provide cellular service choose the same locations as the 2nd generation towers to prepare 4th generation service to save operating and construction costs. After operating 4th generation service in the same locations of the 2nd generation towers in the city of Mosul, many problems appeared in the cellular coverage. In this paper, these problems are discussing and comparing with the results of the Atoll software. Methods have been proposing to solve these problems and improve cellular coverage by up to 7% of the area covered.
