Except the limited cable that is supplied in the package everything is good. It works really well and is boosting good 4G speed for us. Thank you.
Our Cabin is located in a very weak ( Dead) cell area. We had a Weboost that helped a little but finally quit working. If I stood outside on our deck I could occasionally send a text but could not receive or sent group texts or pictures, forget about a good phone call. We even bought a different phone service that operated on a different network. After reading the instructions I had a question about the maximum length of the cable I could use. I emailed tech and had a answer in hours. After finding the best area for a signal I installed it on a mast on our roofs eave. We went from 0-1 bar to 2-4 bars. Even with only 2 bars my texts go through right away and can usually send and receive group texts and photos. After struggling for a couple of years I was SO pleased with how it helps when we had so little signal. We actually were able to facetime my grandson which totally surprised me. I would think if you have a couple of bars your results would be even better, just follow the installation instructions
I have lived in my rural home for ten years and never had good signal inside. Did some research and purchased this particular product since reviews were good and it covered my local bands. It took me some trial and error to get the antenna pointed right but once I did next to the indoor amp I am pulling-86 decibels. I also have a LTE router and band locked it to the best one and consistently getting between 18-35 MBPS. I did upgrade the indoor antenna to a long range Omni and it boost signal throughout my 2000 square foot home. If you’re looking for great service for a fraction of the price of others I highly recommend this booster.
This product is awesome!! We live in a very remote area in the mountains with minimal 2 degrees cell service. I have had 2 previous cell signal boosters that utilized our DSL internet. One performed marginally and ultimately failed. The replacement also performed marginally (up to 3 bars 3G), but utilized much of the band width from the DSL. I bought this product because I have had good results with 4G and this product does not require internet/wifi. It installed easily and now provides us with 4 bars of 2 degrees service. The most important part of installation is finding the nearest cell tower for your provider to aim at (ours is 7 kms away) and taking the time to check the signal strength before mounting the external antenna. This is a great product and I highly recommend.
This item shipped quickly & came with everything needed for setup. My brother is happy as it boosts the 4G signal for his Vodafone mobile. So I didn't return it. My recommendation is to figure out which band your phone uses before purchasing.
This works - it boosted my signal throughout my house main floor. It improved signal and call quality for voice - no noticeable difference in data speed though.
I was very skeptical of this but figured I'd give it a try cause what did I have to lose? Our batch is in a remote area and I usually only get 1 bar of service, if that. Upon plugging it in all our phones went to 4 or 5 bars! I was shocked. There's no electricity at our camp so we have it plugged into a portable solar generator that we got on Amazon. Works great! Calls are still iffy for some reason, but texts and internet work great. Would definitely recommend.
I get more bars inside now than outside the house. The max 4 bars 99.9% of the time stream videos almost better than WiFi. Very impressive. The hardest part was put a large hole through the side of the house because the fitting is about the size of a quarter almost not your regular co-axle I don’t know why they made it so big but I was able to fill it with caulking then in business.
This is my second cell phone signal booster.
The first one used a single band and failed sometimes, as I found out my phone and carrier uses multiple bands- depending on what is happening with their network. AT&T in my case uses bands 12/17 and 5. Which one the phone uses as any given time seems to depend on what their towers are doing with other customers. Basically they are balancing the network for fastest output for everyone. Normally your cell phone automatically switches, and you'll never even notice. But when buying a cell phone booster, you need one that has ALL the bands your carrier uses.
So get an app to monitor the frequency your phone uses for phone calls and data throughout the day, and make sure it matches the bands on this booster. "Network Cell Info lite" is the app I used.
This booster itself works great! Not the easiest to set up since the antenna and transmitter needs to be 20' or more away from each other (vertical separation helps a lot too). But once that is achieved and I used signal checking app to aim the outdoor antenna at the tower for best reception- I now actually have 1-2 bars better cell service inside my house, than I do outside! And I used to have completely dead spots with zero bars in my house by comparison, without the signal booster. (I get 2 bars outside where I placed the booster antenna)
Product boosts my signal from -100dBm to -85dBm. It's enough to make the phone usable.
I ran data speedtest a few times. The download speeds had a small increase, the upload speed is where the boost is at. This makes sense since the cell tower is more powerful than your phone, so the phone can receive data but has difficulty sending data.
The cords/wires are too short, only 30 feet long. Barely enough to reach my shed. There's another 30 foot cord, but that's for the internal antenna. In general, to avoid feedback, make sure the internal antenna isn't pointed towards the outdoor antenna and the outdoor antenna isn't pointed to the indoor antenna and keep the two at least 20 feet apart, even better if it's vertical distance.
As for the app, i didn't download it. It seems like a shady Chinese data gathering app. It only needs to connect to the device to help set things up, but it asks for information like email and cell phone numbers. Set it up manually, point the antenna in various directions until you get some signal.
We live in an urban area and have a plan on the Verizon network, but still had to get used to having no Cellphone reception in our home.
Recently we decided to try this cellphone signal booster and it turned out to be very effective as shown in the video.
1 - The kit was very easy to figure out and a user guide helps to that end too
2 - It took a little experimenting to find the best position and direction for the outdoor antenna which is part of the process
3 - An App 'Signal Supervisor' helps by displaying the signal strength for best cellular service in the area.
All in all it is good.
I am very impressed with this product. I installed this in a metal building up north. I had no signal inside at all. I got 2 bars of 4G LTE outside. I installed it on the TV antenna mast about 15' up and now get 4 bars of LTE inside and have no problems video conferencing. Know your application. If you have some signal outside and poor service inside its fantastic. If you have no signal at all outside, you can't amplify nothing. I work for a custom AV integrator and have installed Wilson whole house systems in my previous job and never got as good of results as I got from the booster at 20% discount . I highly recommend this product.
