Will a cell phone booster for home work for me?

If you have any available cell signal outside your home then the outside antenna can pick it up and the booster will amplify it into your home.

We also offer a 30-day money-back guarantee on our products so you can set it up and test it out at your home. weBoost cell phone boosters work with all cell carriers like AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile and US Cellular so you won’t have to switch your carrier.

How to Boost Cell Signal at Home for Free

Building materials like brick, siding, stucco, and even coated ‘energy-efficient’ glass block cell signals. So, to get a better signal, just step outside of your home. By reducing the obstructions between your phone and the cell tower, your reception will usually improve.

If you have a case on your phone, try taking it off to see if the cell signal improves. Also, pay attention to how you hold your phone when you make a call. Be sure you’re not inadvertently blocking your device’s internal antenna.

Make sure to keep your phone battery charged up. A low battery can negatively affect your phone’s ability to receive and hold onto cell signal.

There are many apps and websites you can use to easily find the nearest cell tower. When you know where the cell tower is located, you know which direction your signal is coming from. Now you can experiment to locate better cell signal inside your home. For example, move to the side of your home nearest the cell tower to see if that will improve your cell service at home.

Cell signal strength is not uniform throughout buildings, including your home. So even if you don’t know where the nearest cell tower is, you can move to another room of the house to see if the signal is better there. Or try your call next to a window, where signal may (but not always!) better penetrate the exterior walls of your home.

As previously discussed, many things between you and the cell tower can block your cell signal. So, try moving to the top floor of your home. A higher location reduces the chance of obstructions blocking the cell signal. If you live in an apartment building, you can even go up to the roof to try your call.

Most phones allow you to create a hotspot that is essentially a Wi-Fi signal that cellular-enabled devices can connect to. When you’re at home you can try connecting to the hotspot instead of the cellular network and see if that improves your connection.

Admittedly this doesn’t do anything to increase your cell signal, but it may improve your calling capability. Most smartphones allow native Wifi calling and texting, which is supported by all major U.S. cell carriers. There also are a bunch of messaging apps now for audio and video calling. So, if you have solid Wi-Fi coverage in your home, the Wi-Fi network can be a good substitute for the spotty cellular network.

Turn off your LTE service to see if you can get a better connection and improved coverage by using the 3G network. Sometimes the network you are on can become too congested and slow so changing the network to a less crowded one can help strengthen your signal.

This option isn’t free but can help with your specific carrier’s cell signal strength in your home. Microcells actually create a localized cell signal in your home and require a broadband Internet connection. Voice and data traffic is moved over the Internet to the microcell, which transfers the traffic to the cell signal it generates so your phone can pick it up. These are typically sold by your phone carrier and will work only with that carrier’s network.

Why Boosting Cell Signal In Your House Can Lead to Better Data Speeds

In any home, car, or office, there are many obstacles that prevent us from getting the best signal from our mobile devices. Sure, there are the physical obstacles, such as hills, buildings, bridges, trees and poles — but that’s just outside. Once we head in, there are countless walls, panes of thick glass and other solid construction materials such as steel and concrete that wreak havoc on the quality of a wireless cell signal. Next, there’s the existence of all our electronics, such as TVs, computers, tablets and phones, as well as thermostats, doorbells, and other IOT devices, all competing for bandwidth and airspace, and it’s any wonder we get reliable data on our phones at all.

With a cell phone booster for home, however, you can reclaim your lost data speeds by boosting or increasing the signal that your phone sees, even if the connection is essentially non-existent where you need it.

It all goes back to Shannon’s Law, which states that a network’s transmission rate is a function of its signal-to-noise ratio or the ability of a signal to overcome electromagnetic interference or noise that prevents it from accurately transmitting data. Whether by distance, as in your physical distance to a cell tower, or by interference, such as that caused by a physical barrier like a wall or digital interference caused by too many electronic devices in the area, a poor cell phone signal can dramatically slow your phone’s max internet speeds.

It does this by clogging the signal you can get with noise such as packet loss and other data transmission errors that require bandwidth-stealing retransmission. So while the network capability hasn’t changed, needing to send the same data over and over reduces the transmission of valid data over a given period of time.

When you boost your cell signal in house, you’re giving more of that valuable signal to your phone, which enables it to overcome the existing noise inside the building, providing you with a faster, more stable internet connection. With the right product and installation, the strong signal that a booster gives you means reliable coverage in every nook and cranny of your home, office or other environment.  

Cell phone signal boosters can keep you connected with reliable data speeds in your home, your car or your backyard office and won’t fail you during an important phone or video call. To find out more about the right cell phone booster for you, click below.
