Mobile internet hotspots are where cell signals are used to make data connections available to users of Wi-Fi (or more accurately, Mi-Fi) enabled devices. Even users who lack cellular connectivity on their devices such as smart phones, tablets and laptops can benefit from tapping into a mobile hotspot to enjoy wireless data. There’s no doubt this Wifi hotspot (or more accurately, but less known terminology, Mifi hotspot) is a wonderful technology. However, when there’s no cellular coverage or limited coverage for the source device itself, that hotspot device is of no use whatsoever to other portable devices such as a smartphone, tablet, or a laptop.
In addition to the powerful mobile hotspot signal booster (previously known as Wilson sleek cell phone/hotspot signal booster), there're few other tips to enable a hotspot to work, even when it is in a location with questionable cell signal. Read on, for the best tips to boost your mobile hotspot signal reception:
Our first tip is to change your hotspot’s location. Try a different level/floor of your house or different rooms of your apartment to see if you can achieve better cell reception. We know that cellular signals are inclined to fluctuate inside buildings. Therefore, by simply moving to a different location within your building you could very well find a spot that offers better reception.
Try placing your hotspot next to a window: We know that building materials can obstruct cellular signals more so, than window glass panes. This means that glass may allow signals to pass through more easily than (say) the brick walls or roof of your home.
Even better, try either of above tips in conjunction with a Mobile Service Map Tool. Cell phone tower maps show exact locations of cell towers in your area for various carriers. There're also apps to download which will provide the same information (shown at same cell phone tower maps link provided above). Once you know the location of your carrier’s nearest tower, then you will know on which side of your home, or which window, to locate your hotspot.
Finally, a vehicle cell phone signal booster could well be the best investment you make if you’re still struggling to locate a reliable signal in your car or truck. With one of those boosters you will be able to achieve a reliable and strong cell signal for your hotspot. Thus, this would ensure that all devices relying on mobile Wi-Fi have the required data connectivity. If you have a hotspot in your office or your home, an indoor cell phone signal booster can achieve these results. In order to access the strongest possible signal, the hotspot should be placed as close as possible to the indoor (device) antenna.
A hotspot can be a godsend if you need to keep your children entertained on a long road trip, or if you’re using your vehicle as a mobile office. A cell signal booster ensures that, as you’re driving, the Wi-Fi data traffic continues to flow without interruption.
Checkout the weBoost Drive 4G-S, a single user vehicle cradle booster. It safely secures the hotspot in a cradle whilst boosting the signal. If you require a hotspot as well as improved signal for your cell phone, then it is our recommendation that you invest in a wireless vehicle booster. The weBoost Drive 4G-X will resolve all your problems! An amplified cell signal is sent by the Drive 4G-X to all cellular enabled devices within your vehicle’s cabin, which means that the driver can answer incoming calls with their wireless headset and the children will still be entertained with their tablets in the backseat.
Increased Data Speeds
The bonus with cell phone signal boosters in poor signal areas is that you can also increase the data speeds for faster downloads and uploads. That is in addition, of course, to improving coverage and boosting the cell signal of your phone for clearer voice calls.
