AT&T has the second largest mobile phone network in the United States. It claims to have the most reliable 4G LTE network nationwide. Its network covers 99% of the nation’s population with its voice and data networks and therefore certainly offers a very good cell phone coverage.
So why is it that there’re still many AT&T customers out there who get weak cell service, and in some cases no cell service at all? Should these users consider a cell phone booster? They should, because cellular amplifiers guarantee better cell connection within a work environment, home, or vehicle.
Of course, when an AT&T user receives poor cell connection, it is only natural for them to blame AT&T for it. The truth is more complex, however. Indeed, it is not always AT&T’s fault that you’re receiving weak cellular reception. The reason you’re experiencing a weak reception, or no reception at all, is almost always because there’s something standing between your device and the cell tower – something that is blocking the full strength wireless transmission reaching you. That is simply due to law of Physics.
What Causes Poor Cell Reception?
Both voice and data traffic move through (RF) radio frequency waves, the same as the radio transmissions that allow you to listen to music on your radio. The radio frequency waves are capable of travelling long distances. However, whenever these waves have to pass through something, they are either weakened or completely blocked.
You will have noticed this yourself when listening to FM radio in your car - whenever you pass underneath a bridge through a tunnel, you will suddenly experience an interruption in the radio reception. The music or conversation normally get interrupted with static or disturbance making it difficult to perceive. Cell phones operate similarly.
Therefore, that is exactly what happens to your cell phone reception: The cellular transmission can be blocked by almost any barrier that lies between you and an AT&T tower. These barriers include man-made structures (buildings), terrain features like hills, extreme weather conditions, and even trees and thick foliage.
An ultimate cause would be the distance between yourself and the nearest AT&T tower. Of course, your reception is going to become less reliable the further you’re away from the cell tower. Also, the mobile transmission has to pass through many obstacles to be able to get to you, such as bricks, concrete, metal, glass whether at your workplace or at home. Or through the tinted glass and metal of your car.
Dropped phone calls, poor quality audio, slow downloads and uploads are a natural consequence, as are no-reception dead zones.
The Answer? A weBoost-made AT&T Cell Phone Booster.
Installation of a weBoost AT&T cell booster can improve cell coverage because it picks up outside AT&T reception, amplifies it, then boosts that amplified reception inside your office space, your home, or your vehicle, making cell reception available for all cell devices.
With an AT&T cellular booster from weBoost, an exterior antenna is used to collect weak mobile transmission from the tower. These mobile transmissions are then boosted and redistributed inside your workspace, your home, or your vehicle, enabling any cellular enabled device to use this boosted reception. This system also works in reverse, whereby the boosted transmissions are sent back to the AT&T tower.
What is an AT&T Microcell Booster?
An AT&T Microcell booster is a completely different product, working in a completely different way. An AT&T Microcell booster works like a miniature AT&T cell tower, because it is designed to create a local mobile network within your office space or your home.
The microcell booster does not work in vehicles. Because the AT&T microcell booster requires a broadband internet connection, it uses your Wi-Fi bandwidth. This means it competes for bandwidth with other online uses, and this includes streaming video services like Netflix on your smart TV or PC.
On other hand, an AT&T booster from weBoost does not require an Internet connection because it works with existing cell phone reception. In addition, the weBoost booster works for all cell devices on all networks, and this includes T-Mobile, Sprint, Verizon, and other service provider’s networks.
It’ is important to note here that weBoost cell boosters are FCC certified and approved by AT&T for use on its network. The fact that weBoost cell phone boosters are capable of working with all North American cell service providers is a huge advantage over AT&T’s Microcell, which only improves coverage for its AT&T customers.
