Home Cell Phone Booster Guide: Getting Better Signal Inside

Weak Cell Phone Signals on The Road

Over 72% of Americans occasionally experience poor signal every week according to Pew Research Center study.

And it's a problem that will only get worse.

More smartphones means more data. More data for internet, emails, streaming video & music, social media, apps, video calls, and talk & text.

And let's not forget, you're either dealing with distance from the cell tower or battling against hundreds or thousands of users on the same tower.

Doesn't matter.

It all leads to the same problems you've faced this week: poor call quality, dropped calls, slow internet, spotty reception, and weak service.

And especially when on the road, driving down in your car, truck, minivan, or vehicle, the constant movement and roaming make it difficult to maintain a reliable signal for your mobile needs.

The Main Causes of Dropped Calls

  1. Distance from cell tower
  2. Obstructions between your phone antenna and cell tower
  3. Car material like metal and glass interfering with signals

In remote, rural areas, distance from cell tower is usually the biggest culprit of poor reception. Although mountains, hills, and tall trees also disrupt cell signals easily. In the city, interference between your phone and tower is usually the biggest factor. Also depending on your vehicle, metal, glass, and other material can weaken or entirely block cell signals from effectively reaching your phone.

How to Improve Your Cell Signal

A cell phone signal booster for your car, truck, RV, and even boat helps boost weak 3G & 4G LTE signals. It does this with 3 easy steps and equipment.

  1. The Outside Antenna pulls in the existing cellular signal.
  2. The Amplifier boosts the signal with patented technology up to 32X
  3. The Inside Antenna rebroadcasts the enhanced signal throughout your vehicle.

All this results in better talk & text, crystal clear calls, reliable service & reception, fast internet, and more bars.

Here's a quick video about how a car cell phone booster works:

All our cell phone signal boosters (repeaters) work for all carriers (AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile, etc.) and for all cellular devices such as smartphones, cell phones, tablets, any internet-connected device that uses cell signals.

Easy to install and more bars at the flip of a switch.

The Differences Between a 3G & 4G Signal Booster

Car cell phone boosters come in two categories: 3G or 4G and single or multi-user. 3G signal boosters are great for talk & text and basic 3G internet. If your main goal is to have good reception for calls and text messages, then a 3G booster will definitely do the job. 4G signal boosters do all of 3G AND fast 4G internet. If you're using heavy data like streaming YouTube videos, downloading podcasts, listening to Spotify, or constantly using the internet, then a 4G booster is the best choice.

Below is our extensive list of the best cell phone signal boosters for cars, trucks, and other vehicles.
