Let’s face it – there is nothing worse than being in the middle of an important call when your cell signal fails. Not only do you miss out on valuable talk time, but you have to wait until your signal surfaces to resume the call. Don’t let dropped signals cause you frustration – cell phone boosters are an excellent way to increase your signal strength and prevent this from happening. Here is some basic information regarding cell phone boosters – what they are, how they work and how to find the best one to suit your needs.
Cell phone boosters were originally created to curb the two primary factors associated with poor cell reception – distance from the cell tower, and obstructions to the cell tower that commonly cause a disconnection. A cell phone booster is a machine that is designed to take a weak signal, amplify and clear it from any obstructions and restore it to its original strength and vitality. A cell phone booster for home is a great tool to have to ensure your signal strength is always well-maintained so that missed calls and dropped conversations are a thing of the past.
The booster system essentially works by mounting an antenna to a location that currently receives a signal – most commonly, a rooftop. A signal then passes from outside antenna to an amplifier within the home. There, the signal is amplified then sent back to the outside antenna where it is broadcasted throughout the area – providing peak cell reception. The system also works backwards to provide an efficient two-way communication stream.
Although the technology sounds quite simple, finding the right cell phone booster for home can be a challenging task. When selecting the right booster for your home, it is important to consider your current carrier and network provider, the outside signal strength of your existing provider and the magnitude of the area you wish to provide a "boost" to. Certain cell phone boosters only support certain carriers and networks; so it is important to determine which carrier you will need to support in order to make the most efficient purchase possible. Your purchase will need to amplify the correct frequencies in order to work properly. It is also important to consider the size of the space you wish to boost – as this will help you to determine how strong of an amplifier you need to purchase to get the job done right.
Fortunately, all of our boosters work with all cellular service providers in USA and Canada.
