?agreed that Wire Lath is too-darn close to what you'd want to use to
?build a WiFi / 4G free space.

Tom's wire lath in the basement ceiling may actually boost reception in
*some* areas of 1st / 2nd floor (and create some null spots due to standing
waves as well).

In general, the longer wave / lower frequency devices will have larger hot
/ dead zones, and shorter/higher=smaller.

If *your* ceilings are free of wire lath (or expanded metal sheet lath),
you may be able to establish vertical cells.
