How to boost cell phone signal strength for your cabin or cottage? There're a plenty of solutions for improving cell phone signal strength in a remote rural cabin or cottage. Let us take a look at 3 of them below.
Hey! If you stay in the countryside, or love the off the grid lifestyle like many of us, you will have noticed how easy it is to lose your cell phone connection or drop calls at the worst possible time, when you are in the middle of an important conversation.
You have probably experienced dropped calls on many occasions at your cabin or cottage. How does that make you feel?
The big telecom companies such as AT&T, Sprint, Verizon and T-Mobile are worth hundreds of billions of dollars, but even they cannot cover every stretch of the ground. That is why those of us with a mountain cottage or a summer cabin have to reckon with weak cell phone signals.
But really, there is no excuse for weak signal strength, no matter where you are in North America. There's always a way around this problem. So how to increase cell phone signal strength in a remote or rural area where the nearest cell towers are at a fair distance away?
Well, there are a plenty of solutions, some easy and effective, and some not so easy and effective. Let us take a look at 3 of them.
Prayer can work wonders, they say and they are right for the most part. But could it compel a large Fortune 500 company such as AT&T or Verizon to build a cell tower close to your cabin or cottage?
Nah, we don’t see that happening. You have to understand that large telecom companies function like a large bureaucracy. It takes them years to get things moving or even to get the simplest thing done, such as setting up a new cell tower in a remote location (well, not so simple they may say).
It doesn't make economic sense for them to construct a new cell tower in a remote countryside, with a sparse population. So whether you like it or not, you’re on your own here. You have to consider another solution.
If your cottage or cabin has a landline internet connection such as Time Warner Cable, your phone can access a special feature called Wi-Fi calling. This means you can make use of your internet broadband landline to make calls and don’t need a conventional cellular connection.
All major cell phone service providers offer Wi-Fi calling – T-Mobile supports it, so do Verizon, AT&T and Sprint. As long as you have a Wi-Fi capable phone you will do fine. But you need to have landline internet – without landline internet, you cannot have Wi-Fi Calling.
Okay, here’s how to improve cell phone signal strength for your cottage or cabin. Pick a cell phone signal booster, also called as cell phone amplifiers, cell phone extenders or cell phone repeaters. Options are available according to coverage size but since we're talking about a remote cabin or a remote cottage. Therefore, please choose atleast the NEXT ONE UP in coverage area and consequently in its amplifying power.
Here's the first thing you should know about a cell phone amplifier – these devices are 100% legit and are approved by all major carriers in North America.
They are very good at boosting weak cell phone signals whether it is a 2G, 3G, and 4G LTE cellular signal. When you install one of these devices at your cabin or cottage, you will most certainly get a much better coverage, higher signal strength or more bars, and much faster internet and data speeds.
Yes, you don’t have to worry about dropped calls anymore. You will be able to have a decent conversation with anyone, no matter where you are, at any time, without having to worry about the call breaking down or getting disconnected.
A cell phone repeater is a simple but efficient device based on a highly effective technology. Here’s how it works.
First, it consists of an outside antenna which draws in weak signals that surround your property.
Second, the amplifier that enhances the signal up to 32X times.
Third, the enhanced signals are then rebroadcast into the cabin or cottage with the interior antenna.
Does it work? Oh, absolutely! You can be sure about that. The best part is these devices cost only a one-time fee - No monthly fees nor broadband Internet required for them to work. Let us know what you think in comments section below!
