That's not really a technical issue, but a policy decision. Despite what some idiot who doesn't know rf from a hole in the ground says, a cell signal isn't going to penatrate the core. But it's very low cost and simple to add pico, or femto repeaters for a few hundred bucks to cover spaces like elevator shafts if they want to.
