5Ge Signal Boosters: Boost Your AT&T 5Ge Coverage at Home, Office, or Car

5Ge Signal Booster

What is 5Ge from AT&T?

5Ge or 5G Evolution is AT&T's term for its gigabit LTE service also known as LTE-A. While traditional LTE has a peak download speed of 100Mbit/s. LTE-A or gigabit LTE has a top download speed of 1Gbit/s.

That's up to 10X in performance!

While all manufacturers are sticking to calling it LTE-Advanced or LTE Plus, AT&T has decided to label it '5G E' on most modern smartphones.

So is it 5G or not?

Yes and no. Technically, it's 4G LTE on steroids. However, it's also the first and crucial step to building out 5G–the real one coming out in 2020.

So whether you call it advanced 4G LTE or early 5G, there's one thing you can't deny, it's fast.

A simple test on three smartphones on AT&T 5Ge, T-Mobile, and Sprint showed a dramatic speed difference:



Carrier Download Speed Upload Speed
AT&T 5Ge 28 Mbps 21 Mbps
T-Mobile LTE 21 Mbps 2.5 Mbps
Sprint LTE 4.8 Mbps 1 Mbps

That's 34% faster on downloads and 836% faster on uploads against T-Mobile based on this quick test.

What is a 5Ge Cell Phone Signal Booster?



A cell phone signal booster takes any existing 5Ge (AT&T), 4G LTE (all carriers), 3G, and 2G signal and amplifies up to 32X and then rebroadcasts the boosted signal into the home, office, or car.

It's simple: more bars, better service.

  1. Better Coverage: Think of a signal booster like a megaphone. It takes what you have and multiplies the performance.
  2. Reliable Reception: No more dropped calls, spotty service, and low quality calls.
  3. Consistent Service: Fast internet data, uploads, and downloads. 

Your 5Ge Signal Booster Guarantees:


  1. Works for 5Ge, 4G LTE, 3G, and 2G service on AT&T.
  2. Works for other carriers: Verizon, T-Mobile Sprint, and other major carriers.
  3. Works for all phones & cellular devices.
  4. Complete kits, easy to install.
  5. No monthly fees, no need to connect to wifi.

For homes, whether you're in a remote rural area with an off-the-grid cabin or cottage or the big city with difficult-to-get-signal buildings, our recommended cell phone boosters get the job done. They'll extend your AT&T network signal with low-cost options for 1-2 rooms up to 7,500 sq ft coverage depending on your model and outside signal.

Our vehicle signal boosters work for cars, sedans, RVs, and even boats.

Enterprise AT&T signal boosters cover up to 100,000+ sq ft buildings, although it takes a dedicated team of installers and planners to get the absolute best service. 

Why be a servant to the cell tower? Bring the cell tower inside your home! Below are our top recommendations. 


AT&T 5Ge Cell Phone Signal Booster For Home

Our Pick 

weboost connect 4g signal booster

weBoost Connect 4G for AT&T 5G E (470103)

  • Boosts 5Ge (AT&T), 4G LTE (all carriers), 3G, 2G, Talk, Text, Internet, and Data
  • For Whole Home Coverage
  • Up to +65 dB Gain

Our Review:

The weBoost Connect 4G has been the most recommended home booster three years in a row for good reason. It's a dependable performer that covers most homes for better service.

The average home size in North America is around 2,500 sq ft. Under absolute best conditions, the Connect 4G covers up to 5,000 sq ft with great outside signal and an open-spaced layout home.

Real world results and customer reviews put it around 2,500 to 3,000 sq ft, a little less for rural areas.  

Great option for most homes, small offices, farm houses, and buildings under 5,000 sq ft wide. If you're getting some spotty reception, we'd recommend to start with this first since this tends to be the Goldilocks or "just right" model.

weboost connect 4g-x commercial signal booster

weBoost Connect 4G-X for AT&T 5G E (471104)

  • Boosts 5Ge (AT&T), 4G LTE (all carriers), 3G, 2G, Talk, Text, Internet, and Data
  • For Large Building Coverage
  • Up to +70 dB Gain

Our review:

The weBoost Connect 4G-X is absolutely the most powerful consumer line booster you can get. With an additional +5 dB over the Connect 4G, it's roughly a shade over 3x more powerful. 

Best case scenarios can expect coverage up to 7,500 sq ft. More likely results can at least expect 4,000-5,000 sq ft even with below average outside signal. Again, fringe zones can expect a little less.  

If you have extremely poor signal (remote area) or need wide coverage for a building 5,000 sq ft and over like a warehouse, the weBoost Connect 4G-X is your new best friend.

weboost home 4g signal booster

weBoost Home 4G for AT&T 5G E (470101)

  • Boosts 5Ge (AT&T), 4G LTE (all carriers), 3G, 2G, Talk, Text, Internet, and Data
  • For 1 Room Coverage
  • Up to +60 dB Gain

Our review: 

The weBoost Home 4G is a nice cheap option if you're on a budget and only need spot coverage.

Depending on the outside signal, you may get 1-2 room coverage under best conditions. But you're not here because of best conditions, so it's more realistic to say desktop to small room coverage (about 250 to 500 sq ft). 

Most customers have told us they're much closer to the inside antenna than anticipated for better signal. Great option for single office, home office (SOHO) and small areas like cabins and apartments. Good starter kit if you have decent outside signal but doesn't cover the whole home and not a strong performer in rural areas with poor signal.

AT&T 5Ge Cell Phone Signal Booster For Car

Our Pick 

weboost drive 4g-m signal booster

weBoost Drive 4G-M for AT&T 5G E (470121)

  • Boosts 5Ge (AT&T), 4G LTE (all carriers), 3G, 2G, Talk, Text, Internet, and Data
  • For a multiple cell devices
  • Up to +50 dB Gain

Our review:

The weBoost Drive 4G-M is the most popular & recommended car signal booster in North America. 

A slim outside antenna picks up signal. An indiscreet inside antenna (usually Velcroed to the driver seat) broadcasts signal inside. You have to be about an arm's length to get the boosted signal, so it's best for your typical sedan, truck, or SUV.

Majority of customers in the city say they're getting at least 2 to 3 more bars. For off-the-grid areas, a few did say they have to be closer to the inside antenna than anticipated to get more bars and amplified signal. Boosts signal up to 4 devices.

Updated: The new & improved version of the weBoost Drive 4G-M features a stronger inside antenna with +5.1 dB gain compared to the +4.3 dB gain of the previous model (# 470108). Links have been updated to point to the new version.

  • Boosts 5Ge (AT&T), 4G LTE (all carriers), 3G, 2G, Talk, Text, Internet, and Data
  • For multiple cell devices
  • Up to +50 dB Gain
  • Pro Model: 60% More reach from and to cell tower

Our review:

The weBoost Drive 4G-X has 2x the uplink power compared to the Drive 4G. 

So that means about 30-60% more reach to the cell tower than your typical car booster.

For drivers in extremely rural or poor signal areas, the Drive 4G-X is the first option to look at. Boosts signal up to 4 devices.

Our review:

The weBoost Drive Sleek is about price and performance for the single user.

It uses a magnetic vent mount and when paired with a bluetooth headset, it really shines for regular talk & text and hands-free navigation. 

Smartphone has to be in the cradle to get maximum signal boost. New design allows for wider smartphones and small tablets.

FAQ

Is my phone compatible with 5G E?

It's simple, if you have '5G E' on your screen, then your phone is compatible. Most modern smartphones like iPhones (iPhone XS and up) updated to iOS 12.2 and the latest Android phones should be able to see 5G E as AT&T rolls out the updates.

What's the difference between 5G and 5Ge?

5G, the global standard as set by the 3GPP aka the real 5G, is expected to launch in 2020. Until then, carriers like AT&T are pre-building their 5G networks and in the interim calling their pre-5G services as 5Ge.

Although it is technically LTE-advanced, it's peak speed does get into the low end of 5G territory.

So it is 5G-ish.

Will an AT&T 5Ge Signal Booster also improve my AT&T hotspot device?

Absolutely.

If your AT&T mobile hotspot routers use 5Ge, 4G LTE, and 3G then it will work!

From the Nighthawk LTE to AT&T Wireless Internet router, it'll get better signal and speeds, especially if the AT&T router has an external antenna port that can directly connect to the AT&T signal booster.

What if I switch carriers in the future?

Our AT&T signal boosters from Wilson Electronics (weBoost & WilsonPro) are multi-carrier systems. This means they are also compatible with Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint, US Cellular, and other major and local carriers.

They are future-proof!

When will the real AT&T 5G service launch?

It's expected to launch in 2020.

Will the real 5G make my AT&T signal booster obsolete?

Nope.

4G LTE is still being built out across North America. If fact, 4G LTE is the backbone of the nation's wireless service. It's not going anywhere anytime soon, AND it's getting faster thanks to LTE-advanced (aka 5G E).

4G LTE is expected to peak in 2030-2035. So...come back in a decade and ask the same question and we might hava a different answer by then.
