ULTIMATE CELL PHONE SIGNAL BOOSTER GUIDE

Are you looking to boost your cell phone signals, but don't know how to? Here's everything you need to know about cell phone signal boosters:

BRIEF OVERVIEW
A cell phone repeater or a cell phone signal booster helps to increase signals of your existing 3G and/or 4G LTE smart phone. cell phone signal booster guide overview
If you have poor signal areas in your car or home, this electronic device will enhance mobile coverage and reception significantly in such areas. Cell phone signal boosters are FCC-Certified that virtually eradicate slow internet, dropped calls and stuck text messages.
In other words, they help improve cell phone signal strength on all types of cell phone providers and carriers in US and Canada (AT&T,
T-Mobile, Verizon, Telus, Sprint, Bell), for all kinds of phones such as Android, iPhone, Windows, Blackberry, etc. Cell phone signal boosters are one-time investments that don't need any extra charges or landline internet connectivity.
Basically, this device takes your current cell signal, magnifies it, and then restores the improved wireless signals to the poor signal areas in your home or car. With cellphone signal boosters, you will be able to enjoy dependable signals that offer lasting connections regardless of what purpose you wish to use it for - business, play, emergency or convenience.
1. REASONS FOR POOR SIGNAL
Are you experiencing slow internet connectivity, poor call quality or low bars? These are indications of poor cellular signal. This happens due to certain reasons. One crucial reason is the distance of your cell phone from the cell phone tower. Your cell phone signals are the weakest when you are the farthest from the cell phone tower. The same can be said when you are closer to your carrier's cell tower, which results in better signals. Outside disturbances include things like tall structures, hills, trees and mountains. These barriers directly impact cell phone signals thereby, creating poor signal area in your home or car.

Inside disturbance involves objects such as thick building materials like brick, glass, thick concrete or metal. Regardless of being close to the carrier's cell tower or great outside signals, inside interference can still result in poor signals.

HOW ARE CELL PHONE SIGNALS TRANSPORTED?
Cell signals are the strongest when generated from the tower. However, as they set out to fight outside interference and distance, they enter your office, car or home through dense building materials such as concrete, glass or metal. When the signal finally reaches you, it is substantially unsteady and weak. This is a result of poor cell phone service, low bars and weak signal. Plus, considering today's modern designed cell phones, the antennas are located inside the phone which further increases reception complexity.
Cell phone signal boosters have become more and more popular due to their ability to attract full signals that people rightfully deserve and are currently paying for!
2. WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT SIGNAL BOOSTER?
The aim of a signal booster is to take weak cell signals and increase it several times, and restore the improved signals to a poor signal area in your home, office or car. These devices are compatible with all kinds of phones and cell phone service providers that offer 2G, 3G and 4G signals. weBoost Signal Booster

4. HOW TO READ SIGNAL STRENGTH
The number of bars displayed on your cell phone is a great indication to judge signal strength. However, this might be subjective over different cell phone providers. Take for instance, 4 bars on Sprint might be 2 bars on T-Mobile regardless of the exact same data speed and signal. This takes place generally because there is no unified measure on how cell phone providers display bars and signal strength.

7. OUTSIDE ANTENNAS
The first key component of a signal booster is an outside antenna. It helps to attract current weak signals. The higher the outside antenna, the better the absorption of outside signal. Installation of outside antennas can be easily performed on the roof or an outside wall. Outside antennas for homes come in two types: yagi antenna and omni directional antenna. Both types of outside antennas are competent to pull your existing 3G & 4G signals.

8. INSIDE ANTENNAS
The third key component of a signal booster is the inside antenna. It helps to increase signal and restore the enhanced signals across the location required. There are two types of inside antennas for home: dome and panel antennas.

INSIDE VEHICLE ANTENNA TYPES

9. CONNECTORS & CABLES
Cables are utilized to attach antennas and the amplifier. In a signal booster kit, there are generally two sets of cables. One is used to connect the amplifier with the inside antenna and the other is used to connect the amplifier with the outside antenna. Longer cables might be ideal for installation flexibility however, the cable length degrades signal quality. Therefore, it is vital to work with the right grade and shortest cable to make sure there is minimum signal loss.

10. MOBILE CARRIER FREQUENCIES
Cell signals are basically radio waves that function on different frequencies. For instance, 3G operates at 850 Mhz and 1900 Mhz frequencies. So if you are looking to boost your 3G signals, then you will need a 'dual-band' amplifier to boost these two brands. 4G functions on 700 Mhz and 1700/2100 Mhz frequencies, which requires a 'five-band' amplifier to boost signals. Many cell phone boosters are compatible with all kinds of phones and cell phone providers on the five major frequencies mentioned above.
To know more about your cell phone provider frequencies in US and Canada, kindly refer to the chart below:

T-Mobile Boost Mobile Metro PCS
CANADIAN CARRIER FREQUENCIES

11. HOW TO REGISTER YOUR SIGNAL BOOSTER
It is highly recommended to register your cell phone signal booster with your wireless provider. The reason being is that many carriers already provide blanket consent for using signal boosters. However, due to liability protection, it is best that you register your signal booster to make sure you are functioning within the fair use policy.
12. BEST PRACTICES
It is imperative that the FCC licenses your cell phone signal booster before using it. Cell phone signal boosters that are not licensed will cause disruptions and might damage your device. All of our cell phone signal booster kits starting with model numbers "46" and "47" are licensed by FCC in USA and IC in Canada.

Even though every signal booster is categorized by coverage size according to a standard situation, a more powerful booster might be required in case of challenging conditions and extremely poor signal areas.
