Fido was one of the earliest to roll out HSPA+ networks. Over the years, the carrier has been regarded as one of the best with its reliable network coverage. However, as you may be aware, network availability and signal strength do vary from place to place. Whether it is due to fewer towers or more traffic in the spectrum, natural events affecting the airwaves or just poor network coverage in a particular area, you will need to ensure that you get optimum signal strength on your Fido phone, tablet or internet connection. If you don’t get the signal strength you want where you live, then you will have to use a Fido signal booster for home.
There are various types of Fido signal boosters for home. You must factor in the signal strength you currently have, the kind of device you use, the network availability in your area in general and the kind of boost you need. The size of your home and how many devices or users you have, should also be factored in as area covered by a booster will vary. Depending on the signal strength and the coverage area, Fido signal booster for home can be categorized into small, medium, large and very large area.
As the name implies, small area Fido signal booster for home will be ideal if you have a small house, or if you need a signal boost at just one place or room. It is quite possible that only a certain section of your house will have poor signal strength and it may be an unavoidable choice where you would be, for a substantial period of time every day. If you own a one bedroom apartment, a studio or a small condo, then you would naturally opt for a small area Fido signal booster for home.

For weaker signals outside, you would be getting coverage of around 50 square feet. When the signal strength outside is medium, the coverage is for about 250 square feet. Every Fido signal booster for home will have a certain capacity to which it can improve the signal strength. The 3G Flex can offer a boost of up to 45 dB.
