Guide to iPhone 5 Signal Boosters

The new iPhone 5 is an amazing device with state of the art features found nowhere else. Unfortunately, many people live, work or travel in areas which have less then perfect coverage and need a solution to boost their cell phone signal to be usable by their iPhone 5 and other devices. We’ve created this guide to help you determine which signal booster system is right for you.

What is a Signal Booster?

A signal booster is a system that takes the best possible cellular signal in your area, such as outside your home, and then amplifies it to an area which does not have sufficient signal, such as inside your home. It uses a combination of an external antenna, signal amplifier and internal antenna to achieve this. Please note, a signal booster can only boost existing signal, so if you don’t have reliable coverage at your location, then a cell phone signal booster won’t help.

Signal Booster Kits for the iPhone 5

The iPhone 5 operates on the same 3G frequency for voice calls as previous versions of the iPhone has, so that will be the primary signal that you’ll be boosting to improve reception and reduce dropped calls. The iPhone 5 also uses the 3G frequency for data transfers, so the same signal booster kit will improve data transfer rates as well.

The iPhone 5 also has the capacity for faster data transfer rates with the new 4G LTE standard. If you live in an area with 4G LTE coverage and would like to boost that in addition to 3G, then we offer dual amplifier kits for both data rates. You can check to see if there is 4G LTE coverage in your area at AT&T or Verizon Wireless.
