Rogers Home Signal Boosters for homes, offices, apartments, cottages, farms, and small buildings.
Rogers, also known as Rogers Wireless or by its parent company’s name Rogers Communications, is the largest wireless carrier in Canada. It is a significant player in the "Direct to home" (DTH) industry and is a market leader in home phone and internet. Rogers has one of the most reliable networks in the country. It had once claimed to have fewer dropped calls, which was legally challenged by competing carriers, but Rogers emerged as the winner in the tussle when the court upheld its claims as accurate. Thereafter, other Carriers invested very heavily to improve their coverage and cellular service to match or even surpass Rogers service. However, for a country as vast as Canada, it is very difficult to have impeccable coverage in every nook and corner. Considering the traffic, the sporadically populated areas when you venture beyond the cities and numerous other factors, the network coverage of Rogers does fluctuate. There are areas that don't have sufficiently strong signals to facilitate seamless connectivity. Whether it is the smart phone network or HSPA+ and LTE, you may want to use a Rogers signal booster for home to get better coverage and stronger reception.
There are dozens of signal boosters compatible with Rogers' network that you can use in your home. But you need to pick one that will be suitable for you. Regardless of the brand or the specific feature of a particular Rogers signal booster for home, there are four types of boosters to choose from. They are small area, medium area, large area and very large area signal boosters for home. As you would notice, the classification is primarily based on the coverage of the booster. But there are substantial differences, in the extent to which the signals would be boosted. Consistence and other elements also feature prominently as you check out the different types of Rogers signal booster for home.
It is needless to mention that a small area Rogers signal booster for home will be the cheapest. As you look for more coverage, you would have to pay more. There is no need to have a large area signal booster, when you have a small area that needs the boost. If you live in a studio, one bedroom condo or apartment or if you want the signal boost to be confined to just a specific part or room in your home or building, then you can get the needful with a small area Rogers signal booster for home.
weBoost 3G Flex is compatible with Rogers 2G Voice and 3G Data. It offers coverage of up to 500 square feet. You wouldn't get any boost beyond that area. When the signal strength is very weak outside, then the coverage would get reduced to only around 50 square feet. That is still good enough for small offices or confined spaces. Considering medium signal strength outside, without the booster, the 3G Flex can easily cover an area of 250 square feet. That is sufficient for small homes or apartments and an office, workstation or cabin. This Rogers signal booster for home has the ability to strengthen your network or signals by up to 45 dB.
An obvious limitation of small area boosters is area, and if you have a medium sized home or you need coverage extending beyond the 500 square feet, then you have to opt for a medium area Rogers signal booster for home.
• weBoost Home 3G (473105) Desktop Booster Kit is a good option. It works on 2G Voice and 3G Data. The coverage of this booster is a sufficient 1,500 sq. ft. This coverage will be available when the signal strength is good. If it is weak, then the coverage would drop down to anywhere from 150 sq. ft. to about 1,000 sq. ft. One of the advantages of this Rogers signal booster for home is that you don't have to install the device outside. You can do so but it is not imperative. The max gain of signal strength of this device is also better than the 3G Flex. You get up to 60 dB gain in signal strength. weBoost Home 4G (470101) Desktop Booster Kit is the 4G variant that is compatible with Rogers 2G Voice, 3G Voice & Data and 4G LTE Voice & Data. The other features of the 4G variant are the same as that of the 3G variant.
• weBoost Connect 3G (472105) Omni Antenna Booster Kit is capable of enhancing your signal strength by up to 65 dB. It can cover an area of 3,500 sq. ft. That is pretty much a generously spacious apartment or a house. It can also be a medium sized office premise. The coverage obviously gets reduced when the naturally available signal strength is very weak. In such cases, the coverage area can reduce to less than 1,000 sq. ft. When the reception is very weak, almost nonexistent, the coverage would be 250 sq. ft. A noted advantage of this Rogers signal booster for home is that you don't have to necessarily point the device towards the cell tower. You can do so but it is not imperative. In many cases, it is not possible to aim a booster directly at the cell tower nearby.
• weBoost Connect 3G (472205) Yagi Antenna Booster Kit works on 2G Voice and 3G Data. The coverage is an impressive 5,000 sq. ft. When the signal strength is weaker, the coverage can reduce to 3,500 sq. ft. and to 1,000 sq. ft. if the signal strength is extremely weak or almost nonexistent. This Rogers signal booster for home can increase the signal strength by up to 65 dB. There is a 4G variant of this booster, called weBoost Connect 4G (470103) booster kit with Yagi antenna that works with Rogers 4G LTE network.
You may need a booster to offer you coverage of 5,000 sq. ft or more. In such cases, you need large or very large area boosters.
weBoost Connect 3G-X (470105) Large Area Signal Booster Kit has an impressive 10,000 square feet coverage. Even with the weakest signal strength available naturally, it can cover 2,000 square feet. In areas where the signal strength is medium, you would enjoy coverage of 7,500 square feet. The Rogers signal booster for home offers a max gain of 70 dB. It has a 4G variant, called weBoost Connect 4G-X (471104) large area signal booster.
For very large areas or premises that cover more than 20,000 square feet, large area signal boosters will be insufficient. You would have to opt for a very large area Rogers signal booster for home, office or building. The best bet is the Wilson Pro 70 Series. There are five variants covering 25,000 square feet to 50,000 sq. ft. and having different capacities of enhancing the signal strength.
Understand the requirements you have, and then assess the challenges. Not everyone will have equally poor network coverage in an area. The device you use and the existing coverage of Rogers will be the two most important factors. The kind of boost you need, and the area will eventually determine the exact Rogers signal booster for home that would be ideal for you.
