Curious and intriguing... cellphone positioning

Not sure if I'll be able to actually do anything with this info, but you never know. I've been researching this for the past 3 hours now, because google gmm on my phone isn't showing "My Location" at home. Thought it may be a bug, and wanted to to know what info it used to determine position and how to get it.

Based on "myl:MCC:MNC:LAC:CID" my first 2 values are -1,-1, so I guess something broke or is not coughing up the info?
