Metro by T-Mobile (formerly MetroPCS) is one of the largest prepaid wireless carriers in the USA. As a T-Mobile subsidiary and MVNO, Metro also has extensive 3G & 4G LTE network coverage across America with reach up to 99% of the population that looks to only grow due to the T-Mobile/Sprint merger.

However, there are times when you're just not getting reliable service leading to dropped calls, slow internet, and spotty reception.

Lucky for you, there's a simple solution: just boost your Metro cell signal.

The Problem: Why Your Metro Coverage Is Weak

Cell phone signals are radio waves, the AM-FM kind. And like all wind and waves, they easily go in different directions without notice. Almost anything under the sun can change, absorb, and block your Metro service. Here are top 5 examples:

  • Cell tower distance: Physical distance and power transmission distance
  • Outside interference: Trees, hills, mountains, valleys, and tall structures.
  • Building material: Metal (especially metal!), glass, concrete, brick, radiant barrier, and other conductive material (electrical or magnetic).
  • Internal building obstructions: Thick walls, plaster, drywall, and other electrical devices & clutter, etc.
  • Even weather (yup): Rain, thunderstorms, solar flares, etc.

Any combination of these problems can drastically reduce your service.

Doesn't matter if you're rural or urban area, poor cell phone signal affects us all.

The Solution: Boost Your Metro Cell Signal

Everything changes with a cell phone signal booster.

A cell phone signal booster takes any existing cell 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.

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

Metro Signal Boosters: Your Guarantees

Our recommended signal boosters are very versatile:

  • Works for all Metro & T-Mobile cellular signal.
  • Future proof: Also boosts signal for AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, DISH, US Cellular and other major carriers.
  • Works for all phones & cellular devices.
  • Complete kits, easy to install.
  • 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 Metro by T-Mobile 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.

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

Metro Cell Phone Signal Booster For Home

The Best Metro Cell Phone Signal Booster for Home

weboost home multiroom
weBoost Home MultiRoom - 470144

For midsize homes and offices with a strong outside signal or small homes with weak outside signal.

Buy Now at $549.99
  • 5G ready booster
  • Up to 5,000 sq ft of Metro coverage under best conditions
  • Up to +65 dB of gain, with 21 dBm uplink and 12 dBm downlink
  • Multiple accessories for maximum coverage and customization (sold separately)
  • Complete coverage for multiple rooms or midsize home for all carriers across multiple devices
  • Outdoor yagi antenna and indoor panel antenna configuration, with stylish fabric front

The weBoost Home MultiRoom is designed to cover several rooms, an entire floor, or a whole midsize, one-story home with Metro signal. As its name suggests, you can expect multiple rooms of coverage with the unit assuming decent outside Metro signal. Assuming flawless outside signal, you can expect up to 5,000 square feet of coverage, but in most situations you can expect 2,000-3,000 square feet of indoor Metro coverage. If you live in a rural area with very weak outdoor signal, expect significantly reduced coverage. In fact, if you’re in an area with next to no signal, this is the lowest grade signal booster you should ever consider buying.

It features a nice, clean look, with an indoor antenna that won't stand out amid your existing home decor.

The weBoost Home MultiRoom not only boosts Metro signal, but all major North American carriers. Should you ever change carrier, the weBoost Home MultiRoom will still work.

If you live in an extremely weak signal area, have a really big house you want to cover, or just want your booster professionally installed, consider its sister product, the weBoost Installed Home Complete.

The Best Professionally Installed Cell Phone Signal Booster for Home

weboost installed home complete
weBoost Installed Home Complete - 474445

Whole-home coverage for large homes with strong outside signal or midsize homes with weak outside signal.

Buy Now at $1,199.99
  • Superior cell phone service for your entire home. 5G Ready
  • Up to 7,500 sq ft of coverage under best conditions
  • Up to +72 dB of gain, with 24 dBm uplink and 12 dBm downlink
  • Multiple accessories for maximum coverage and customization (sold separately)
  • Complete coverage for entire home for all carriers across multiple devices
  • Outdoor yagi antenna and indoor panel antenna, with stylish fabric front
  • Needs no WiFi connection or monthly fees. One time purchase.

Designed, as you might expect, to cover an entire home. The weBoost Installed Home Complete certainly has that power, fully capable of covering a large home with decent outside signal or a midsize home with weak outdoor signal. Expect up to 7,500 square feet of coverage with flawless outside signal, but a more reasonable estimate would be somewhere between 3,500 and 5,500 square feet. In addition, in order to really maximize your coverage, additional antennas are required, especially if you’re trying to cover more than one floor. If you live in a very weak signal rural area, this is your best option for decent coverage - you’ll probably be getting about 2,000 square feet from it.

There are two major considerations on whether or not to buy the weBoost Installed Home Complete . This booster works best for large residential homes, suburban or rural areas, and more. The effective coverage area will vary depending on the strength of your OUTSIDE signal, so it's important to understand – if you’re expecting 7,500 square feet of coverage but have only one bar outside your home, you won’t get it. Realistic expectations of coverage in that scenario are more like 2,500-4,000 square feet.

The other major consideration is whether or not you’d prefer to install it yourself, or have someone do it for you.

Budget-Friendly Metro Cell Phone Signal Booster for Home

weBoost Home Studio - 470166

For small homes and office spaces for all carriers.

Buy Now at $349.99
  • 5G ready - Amplifies talk, text, and data
  • Up to 2,000 sq ft of coverage under best conditions
  • Up to +60 dB of gain
  • Works with all cellular devices across all carriers
  • Compact design, fits on any flat surface

The weBoost Home Studio is the newest addition to the weBoost home booster family and the most affordable. Not only is it compatible with Metro, but with all US carriers.

Under perfect condition, meaning a strong outside signal and minimal Metro signal interferences, the Home Studio can cover areas up to 2,000 sq ft, enough for a small home, office, apartment, dorm, or condo. If you live in an area with weak outside signal, you’ll probably get around 200-500 sq ft – enough for 1-2 rooms. Rural areas will receive much less coverage.

Great starter kit for Metro customers who have decent outside signal but struggle with a reliable connection in the rooms where it matters. If you live in a weak signal area, you probably won't see the results you want with the Home Studio and should consider an upgrade to the weBoost Home MultiRoom.

Metro Cell Phone Signal Boosters For Cars and Other Vehicles

The Best Metro Cell Phone Signal Booster for Cars

weboost drive reach
weBoost Drive Reach - 470154

Excellent for drivers in remote and urban areas.

Buy Now at $499.99
  • 5G ready - Better talk, text, and data speeds guaranteed
  • Up to +50 dB of gain - the max allowed for a mobile signal booster in North America
  • Highest uplink output of any vehicle booster
  • Works with all cellular devices across all carriers, including Metro
  • Sleek, metallic exterior designed to displace excess heat for peak performance
  • Extremely customizable: variants for any type of vehicle and setup

The weBoost Drive Reach is the most powerful vehicle booster from Wilson Electronics, and is excellent at boosting Metro by T-Mobile signal.

A slim outside antenna picks up the signal, and an indiscreet inside antenna (usually Velcroed to a seat) broadcasts the signal inside your vehicle. For optimal results, you have to be about an arm's length from the inside antenna to benefit from the boosted signal, so it's best for your typical sedan, truck, or SUV, but will work with any vehicle.

This is the best vehicle booster no matter where you live. With its increased uplink power, it can reach cell towers that are 2x further for twice the signal strength, making it much more powerful than its competitors and a strong performer in rural areas. Plus, it does a great job at handling more noisy urban environments than other signal boosters.

Highly recommended for Metro customers.

Best Value Metro Cell Phone Singal Booster for Cars

weboost drive x
weBoost Drive X - 475021

For drivers in urban, suburban, and some rural areas.

Buy Now at $399.99
  • Amplifies talk, text, and data - 5G ready
  • Up yo +50 dB of gain
  • Works with all cellular devices across all carriers, including Metro
  • Extremely customizable: variants for any type of vehicle and setup

The weBoost Drive X is a relatively inexpensive yet extremely reliable vehicle signal booster, ideal for Metro customers in urban, suburban, and some rural areas. It’s more powerful than the old Drive 4G but not as powerful as the Drive Reach.

With its +50 dB of gain and more range than its predecessor, it can communicate with relatively far distanced towers to provide you and your passengers with enhanced Metro by T-Mobile signals. It's an all-around performer for the city and the countryside. In weak signal areas, you and your passengers might have to be closer to the inside antenna to benefit from the amplified signal.

For those in extreme cases of poor signal, we recommend the Drive Reach, which is able to reach cell towers located much further.

Most Affordable Metro Cell Phone Signal Booster for Cars

weboost drive sleek
weBoost Drive Sleek - 470135

Best for urban and suburban driving.

Buy Now at $199.99
  • 5G ready
  • Boosts talk, text, and Metro data
  • For a single smartphone
  • Cradle signal booster
  • Up to +23 dB gain
  • Works with all cellular devices across all carriers, including Metro

The weBoost Drive Sleek is about price and performance for a single Metro device.

The kit includes a magnet mount antenna that can be easily installed on the roof of any vehicle and an adjustable cradle vent mount designed to hold any size smartphone or small tablet.

To benefit from the boosted signal, your cellular device has to be in the cradle. And when paired with a Bluetooth headset, it really shines for regular talk, text, and hands-free navigation.

It’s not the strongest performer in extremely remote locations. For those extreme cases, consider the Drive Reach.

Metro Cell Phone Signal Boosters For Commercial Buildings

Most Popular Metro Commercial Cell Phone Signal Booster

weBoost Office 100
weBoost for Business Office 100 – 472060/473060

For small businesses and large homes with strong or weak outside signal.

Buy Now for $1,299.99
  • 5G Compatible - Boosts talk, text, and 4G/LTE/3G data
  • For commercial buildings
  • Up to 25,000 sq ft of coverage under best conditions
  • Up to +72 dB gain
  • Works with all cellular devices across all carriers
  • Expansion kits available to maximize coverage
  • Great for urban and rural areas

The weBoost for Business Office 100 is the most popular pro-grade Metro by T-Mobile signal booster for small businesses. However, Metro subscribers who live in large homes or in extremely remote areas where maintaining a reliable Metro signal seems impossible, the Office 100 has you covered. No more snail-like data speeds, dropped calls, or unsent text messages while working or relaxing in your home.

With gains up to +72 dB and enhanced output powers, the Office 100 can communicate with distant T-Mobile towers and cover buildings up to 25,000 sq ft. Maximum coverage can be achieved with perfect outside signal, zero indoor interferences, and the right antenna configuration. For the most part, however, it averages around 10,000 to 15,000 sq ft (depending on the unit’s configuration and your outside signal strength). Extremely weak signal areas will receive much less coverage.

The Office 100 is perfect for small businesses that have a strong outside signal but experience spotty Metro service throughout the building, as well as large homes and offices located in remote areas where tower distance and terrain make maintaining a Metro by T-Mobile connection extremely difficult.

FAQ

Will a Metro by Signal Booster work with my Metro phone?

Absolutely.

Whether it's an iPhone, Galaxy, Pixel, or any phone, if it's working on the Metro or T-Mobile network, then a Metro signal booster will also improve reception to your phone.

Will a Metro Signal Booster also improve my mobile hotspot?

Yes without question.

Improving your incoming 3G & 4G LTE service to your Metro phone will also improve its mobile hotspot service (also called personal hotspot, WiFi hotspot, and tethering) and mobile hotspot device like Alcatel LINKZONE or other 4G routers.

What if I switch carriers in the future?

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

They are future-proof!

What about Metro 5G service?

Yeah... about that.

The 5G standard has not been officially set by the 3GPP. Therefore carriers like Verizon and AT&T are pre-building our their 5G services by upgrading their current 4G LTE and giving it names like 5G Evolution, First on 5G, 5G+,etc.

But no, it's not the real 5G. It's pre-5G, fake 5G– it's literally 4G LTE on steroids.

The real 5G should launch by the end of 2020.

Will 5G make my Metro 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.

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