Many homes, or parts of homes, have poor or non-existant cell-phone coverage. Cell signal boosters can remedy this by providing strong, reliable coverage inside your home for all your cellular devices.

Cell Signal Boosters

“Can you hear me now?”

That question has become a cultural refrain thanks to Verizon’s ubiquitous advertising campaign a few years back.  And it still resonates now because many people continue to experience spotty cell service and the related effects in their cars, homes or at the office - garbled conversations, dropped connections, missed calls, and endless waits for Web downloads.

But today cellular signal boosters can provide strong, reliable coverage for one room or an entire house, so anyone can answer the CYHMN question with a resounding “Yes.”

What’s a Cellular Signal Booster?

Cellular booster systems take a weak signal – sometimes too faint for a cellular device to detect – and amplify it so that signal coverage is available inside a home, vacation cottage, fishing cabin, even an RV or other vehicle, etc.

A typical system comprises:

  • an outside antenna to pull in the faint signal
  • a booster unit about the size of a paperback book
  • an inside antenna to retransmit the amplified signal within the home
  • coax cable to link the components

Does My Home (or maybe my customer’s home) Need a Signal Booster?

Well, when your cell phone rings with an important call, do you race for the door trying to get outside so you can answer before it goes to voicemail?

Do you wish you could drop your landline phone service, but you’re afraid to because your cellular coverage at home is unreliable?

Does your cellular device come with a data plan that you never use at home because it takes forever to download anything?

If the answer to any of those questions is yes, then a signal booster can probably do wonders for coverage in your home.

Why a signal booster?

Signal booster systems, such as those from Wilson Electronics, offer many advantages:

  • Boosters work with any cellular-enabled device, including phones, tablets, cellular modems, Internet hotspots (like Mi-Fi), etc.
  • They support multiple voice and data connections simultaneously
  • They are bi-directional, amplifying both the downlink (cell tower to device) signal and the uplink (device to tower) signal
  • For most situations, they work no matter which operating system and provider network a device employs
  • Cell phone carriers are quick to point out the increased speeds of their new high speed services, but any increase in download speed is dictated by the signal strength in your home.  Because signal boosters maximize your signal strength, they are able to also deliver on that faster data download promise – up to 20 times faster in some 4G service areas
  • They extend battery life for cellular devices, which use less power when receiving a strong signal
  • Wilson boosters incorporate patented technical safeguards to prevent the booster from malfunctioning and interfering with cell towers

Boosters are legal in all 50 U.S. states and all Canadian provinces. Models from Wilson Electronics include DIY-install boosters for smaller installations, as well as systems designed to provide coverage for much larger areas that require professional installation.
