Default Screen replaced, wifi weak?

Just had screen/digitiser replaced by repair company. Screen wasn't clipped in fully on one side which was worrying (snapped it back in) and now I find wifi reception weaker than it was before, and it can drop in areas it was fine in.

Does repairing digitiser necessitate shifting the wifi wire and could incorrect placing when putting the phone back together cause this issue? Might need to return again.

Yes it can affect the Wi-Fi since the antenna is wrapped around the screen.

Sorry to get off topic but may I ask how much your screen repair cost and who did it? I have one with a broken screen I'd like to have repaired. Thanks.

I see you are in Illinois. This was in the UK with http://sbeglobalservice.com/uk/ at a cost of 122 gbp.
