What is a cell phone signal booster?
A cell phone signal booster (also known as a cell phone repeater or a cell phone antenna booster) is a system which takes an existing cell phone signal, amplifies it, and then broadcasts it to an area which is not currently receiving quality signal. A typical cell phone signal booster system consists of an external antenna, which is placed in the area of best signal, an amplifier to boost the existing signal, and an internal antenna, which broadcasts and receives signal in the area which currently does not have it. All of those components are connected together with high quality cable, and are sold as a complete cell phone signal booster kit.
Cell phone signal boosters typically come in two forms:
- Permanent, where the system is installed in a manner where it is not movable
- Mobile, where you're able to take the signal booster with you, and which uses magnets and other non-permanent mounting devices.
Mobile cell phone signal boosters are typically only able to boost the signal for a small area, such as for an individual phone or the area inside of a car or on top of a desk, the tradeoff for power is made up for by mobility and usually a lower price than more powerful systems.

What a cell phone signal booster is not.
It is important to understand what a cell phone signal booster is not able to do, as that will help determine if one will work for your situation. Most importantly, a cell phone signal booster is not able to create signal from nothing, so if you live or work in an area which does not have any cell phone signal, then a cell phone signal booster will not be able to solve your problem.
Additionally, cell phone signal boosters are not able to boost signal for long distances outside, as this could cause interference with cellular towers, and thus falls within the domain and jurisdiction of the cellular providers.
It is also important to clarify what is not considered a cell phone signal booster, as there has been some confusion about this in the past. The following items are not considered to be cell phone signal boosters:
Stickers that claim to boost cell phone signal - These are stickers that you stick to the back of your phone and claim to increase your signal strength by creating more of an antenna. They usually sell for a few bucks and you can buy them online cheaply. They have been proven time and again to be ineffective at boosting cell phone signal and should not be considered as a legitimate substitute for quality cellular boosting equipment.
Smartphone apps that boost your signal - Apps are just pieces of software on your phone and have no external signal boosting ability, rather they set your phone to airplane mode for a moment, and then turn the radio back on to try to connect to a closer tower (all of which you can do manually). These do not solve the problem of poor signal and we do not recommend them to our customers.
How to choose a cell phone signal booster.
There are a few things to keep in mind when choosing a cell phone signal booster.
First off, the level of signal that you receive in the area that you'll be placing the external antenna (which is usually outside) determines the coverage area that you will receive from that booster inside. This is why we suggest different systems for different signal strengths, that all cover the same area.
Secondly, different networks on different carriers use different frequencies, so it's important to determine which carrier you need to support, then what networks on that carrier. An example would be Verizon 2G and 3G networks. Once you have the determined, then you can narrow down the available signal boosters that support that carrier and networks. We recommend you navigate to the carrier page that you need to boost, and then use the recommendations there.
Lastly, it takes more powerful cell phone signal boosters or special configurations to cover multi-story houses, buildings with concrete or metal floors or walls, situations where there are limitations for antenna placement, etc. If at any point you don't know which booster to go with, or have a question with choosing a cell phone signal booster, do not hesitate to contact us for help.
