In this paper, the authors evaluated the path losses and strength of received signals of a GSM (Global System for Mobile communication) network operating at 2100MHz in Federal University of Technology community using drive test. There were serious cases of call drops and low Quality-of-Service (QoS) experienced within some part of the community. This situation has been burdensome on the side of the network users, as that has made them incur a lot of financial lose and passed through pains. The network providers, on their side, also passed through pressures and financial losses. Through the use of Transmission Evaluation and Monitoring System (TEMS) equipment, Global Positioning System (GPS) and laptop, a drive test was carried out along the adjoining community that surrounds the school.
