4G Signal Booster Guide: Getting Better Signal

on October 10, 2017

The 5 Questions You Need to Know

1. How does a 4G signal booster help me?

4G cell phone signal boosters are FCC-certified devices that take weak 3G & 4G signals and amplify them up to 32X. They are able to boost signal to AND from the cell tower resulting in better talk, text, internet, and coverage. 

Simply put: More Bars.

2. What's the difference between a 3G & 4G booster?

3G signal boosters generally handle talk, text, and basic 3G internet. 4G signal boosters do all of 3G and also high-speed LTE data. 

That's faster internet, video & audio streaming, emails, and other real-time intensive data.

3. Does it work with my phone & my carrier?

Yes and yes. All our recommended 4G signal boosters work for all cellular devices on all carriers. The only limitation would be a specific frequency on Sprint known as Sprint LTE Plus (2.5 Ghz). 

4. Are there any monthly fees?

No. Nope. Nada. There are no monthly fees. There's also no need to connect to Wifi. A signal booster simply pulls in existing weak signal and amplifies it.

5. Which one is right for me?

In this blog post, our boosters generally come in 3 categories: good, better, best. Generally, good will work for spot coverage like a room while better is for the whole house or vehicle and best covers larger homes or vehicles. 


RECOMMENDATION: It's best to know your cell phone signal strength in dB gain, since cell phone bars are subjective across all carriers. Anything -50 to -95 dBm and a signal booster is definitely guaranteed to help. At -95 dBm to -115 dBm, results may vary. Hope this helps.

4G Signal Booster For Home

Good

weboost home 4g signal booster

weBoost Home 4G (Model #: 470101)

  • Boosts Voice, Text Messages, 3G & 4G LTE Data
  • For 1 Room Coverage
  • Up to +60 dB Gain

Our review: 

This is definitely a starter kit.

It's capable of boosting coverage up to 1-2 rooms on a best case scenario. Realistically, it's safer to say desktop/cubicle booster.

So perfect for single office, home office (SOHO), apartments, and spot coverage for a particular area.

Most customers report 500-750 sq ft coverage range, but again, that's dependent on the quality of the outside signal. 


Better

weboost connect 4g signal booster

weBoost Connect 4G (Model #: 470103)

  • Boosts Voice, Text Messages, 3G & 4G LTE Data
  • For Whole Home Coverage
  • Up to +65 dB Gain

Our review:

This is one we'd definitely recommend 8 of 10 times.

A popular kit with coverage up to 5,000 sq ft under best conditions, real-world results around 2,000 to 3,500 sq ft. 

The average home size in USA is around 2,500 to 3,500 sq ft, so it generally covers most homes.

Great option for your average-sized home, small offices, farm houses, and buildings under 5,000 sq ft wide. For people in the countryside or in below average to poor signal areas, we recommend to start with this one first. 


Best

weboost connect 4g-x commercial signal booster

weBoost Connect 4G-X (Model #: 471104)

  • Boosts Voice, Text Messages, 3G & 4G LTE Data
  • For Large Building Coverage
  • Up to +70 dB Gain

Our review:

The Muscle. The Big Swing. The Get It Down.

It's the most powerful consumer-level signal booster for home. 

For people in off-the-grid areas or countryside, this may be the only choice to get any coverage. For city folks, expect extended coverage. 

Most customers can expect a coverage area of 3,500 to 5,000 sq ft with a best case scenario going all the way up to 7,500 sq ft. So it's also a good choice for small office buildings.

If you have extremely poor signal (remote area) or need wide coverage (large building), the weBoost Connect 4G-X is the one you call to save the day. 


4G Signal Booster For Car

Good

weboost drive 4g-s signal booster

weBoost Drive 4G-S (470107)

  • Boosts Voice, Text Messages, 3G & 4G LTE Data
  • For a single smartphone
  • Up to +23 dB Gain

Our review:

If talk & text are the most important factors and you're the only person needing a signal boost, the Drive 4G-S is a solid choice.

It's a cradle-mount, so the phone has to be sitting in the cradle to get maximum boosted signal. So it also doubles as a dash mount.

Might be a tight fit on some wider smartphones/phablets, especially with rugged cases. Only boosts one cellular device while sitting inside the cradle. Pairs well with people who constantly use bluetooth headsets with their phone. 


Better

weboost drive 4g-m signal booster

weBoost Drive 4G-M (470108)

  • Boosts Voice, Text, 3G & 4G LTE Data
  • For a multiple cell devices
  • Up to +50 dB Gain

Our review:

A bestselling kit that boosts cellular signal up to 4 cellular devices. 

The inside antenna is capable of broadcasting an arm's length in any direction which means whole sedan or SUV coverage. However, bigger vehicles like RVs will need a specialized kit to get full inside coverage. It's also capable of being used inside a boat with the right accessories. 

Great for the city, good for the countryside. 


Best

weboost drive 4g-x signal booster

weBoost Drive 4G-X for (470510)

  • Boosts Voice, Text Message, 3G & 4G LTE Data
  • For multiple cell devices
  • Up to +50 dB Gain
  • Pro Model: 60% More reach from and to cell tower

Our review:

The most powerful car booster kit.

The weBoost Drive 4G-X has 2x the uplink power compared to other vehicle signal boosters. This leads to 30-60% more reach to the cell tower.

If you're in the sticks, this is the one you take with you.Used by many O&G professionals, fleet, and other off-the-grid M2M professionals.


4G Signal Booster For Commercial Buildings

WilsonPro 70 Plus (Model #: 463127)

wilson pro 70 plus signal booster

  • Boosts Voice, Text Messages, 3G & 4G LTE Data
  • For Commercial Building
  • Up to +70 dB Gain

Our review:

Cellular boosting solutions for buildings range from 25K to 100K sq ft. although it's possible to go up to 500K and beyond. The WilsonPro 70 Plus is the sweet spot with coverage up to 50,000 sq ft. But of course, real-world use puts it at 25,000 to 35,000 sq ft with spot coverage for priority areas. 

Many of our professional installers and their enterprise customers report much better service, especially when relying on our installation services
