Poor signal strength could be the fault of your carrier, or it could be due to obstructions blocking your signals around the walls of your home. Regardless of the cause, you can increase your signal and get the most bars on your cell phone at home. There are some cellular carriers that offer free or inexpensive devices that you're able to plug in at home to increase your cell signal. Some people are even using Wi-Fi calling on T-Mobile phones.
If you have a poor cell phone signal in your home, you may want to purchase a cell phone amplifier for your home. Your carrier may be able to provide you with ability to boost your signal that you're already getting inside of your house. If you have coverage that is only at a one-bar level but nothing higher in your home, your Wilson cell phone booster kit may be able to bump it up to three or four. If you place a weBoost cell phone booster or amplifier kit near the window, it is able to capture a much stronger signal throughout your entire home. Sometimes these are inexpensive (around $50) but if you want something of higher quality, you may want to invest a bit more.
A fem-to-cell is a low-power, small cellular base station that has ability to connect to your cellular network via an internet connection. It is a small cell signal tower that helps to provide a better signal near your home, which in turn connects to a much larger network via your internet connection. The only downfall to this is that you will need to have a significantly high download speed. Different carriers will require minimum speeds, but it should be okay as long as you currently have a broadband connection.
You will first need to talk to your cellular carrier to see if they offer any of these types of products to help you with your service. You will also want to ask them how much it would cost for you to purchase a booster or repeater. Femtocells are generally available at a discount in certain areas. If your carrier doesn’t offer anything of the sort, there are a number of websites including ours that offer high quality products at reasonable prices that will help you create a better signal inside structures such as apartments, condos, houses, offices, and even schools.
