In this review, it was determined that the weather conditions that affect cellular networks in the sub- saharan regions are temperatures, humidity, wind and precipitation. Then a study of each of these conditions was done to determine their effect on on Cellular Signal Strength Quality and Call Setup Success Rate (CSSR). In doing this, six related research works were studied and reviewed, and certain finding or conclusions were determined. From this study, we can say that, the sub-Saharan region's high temperatures have a detrimental impact on cellular networks' RSSI; wind effectively attenuates received cellular signals within foliage environments, leading to fluctuations in received signals, particularly during high wind conditions; a decrease in signal strength parameters during rainfall at the user end of a cellular network; and, lastly, an increase in humidity in the sub- Saharan region, which was studied under the parameters of signal strength and CSSR, results in a decrease in signal quality.
