The Very Best Method to Increase Your 4G LTE Data Speeds


It’s All Connected: Improve Your Cell Signal, Improve Your 4G LTE Data


One of the most common questions we here at Wilson Amplifiers get is: “Will this booster increase my internet speed?”

Yes and no.

Cell phone signal boosters increase the strength of cellular signal. They have no effect on WiFi whatsoever. So for your computer or non-4G LTE tablet, it won’t have any effect.

Not so for your phone.

We fix slow 4G LTE data and poor cell signal! Find the right signal booster:

What does LTE Mean?


Data reaches your phone from both WiFi and LTE. When no authorized WiFi is found, your phone powers its internet over an LTE network. In other words, when you’re using your GPS in your car, or looking things up on your phone on the go, it’s all done over LTE.

That’s where a signal booster comes in. By strengthening the signal your phone receives, your LTE data speed is drastically increased. Doing that will improve your data speeds, in addition to the benefits of faster texts and crystal clear calls.

All major carriers have united around LTE - AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, and Sprint all use LTE technology, just using different bandwidths.


How Can I Speed Up My Internet, Then?


Before you start, make sure you’re not connected to a WiFi network and that mobile data is turned on. To turn on mobile data, access your quick settings and make sure it is highlighted. You can also go to the regular settings menu and turn it on from there. This ensures your internet is coming from an LTE cellular network.

With this, your internet is now coming in over cellular frequencies. That’s great, because it means a cellular booster will work for you. Cellular signal travels farther than WiFi, so if you lack a cable connection, this is a much cheaper, more reliable option for fast internet.

A cell phone signal booster takes the existing weak signal, amplifies it up to 32X, and broadcasts the boosted signal throughout your home or car.

Stronger LTE data, signal, and internet:

  • Better coverage: no need to be at a particular spot or do yoga poses to get signal
  • Faster data: boosts your 4G and LTE speeds so they are blazing fast
  • Reliable reception: no more dropped calls, repeating conversation, or static-sounding voices
  • Consistent service: faster internet, uploads, and downloads.
  • Works for all phones, carriers, and cellular devices.
  • Complete kits, easy to install.
  • No monthly fees, runs entirely off cellular so no need for WiFi.

Below are the best cell phone signal boosters for boosting 4G LTE data speeds, divided by situation:


4G LTE Cellular Data Signal Boosters For Your Home


OUR PICK

  • Up to 5,000 sq. ft. of 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 boosted cellular signal, which naturally increases 4G and LTE data speeds. As its name suggests, you can expect multiple rooms of coverage with the unit assuming decent outside 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 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 boosts signal for all major North American carriers. Should you ever change carrier, the weBoost Home MultiRoom will still work. It also supports all Sprint bands for the first time on a weBoost unit.

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

The Best Professionally Installed Signal Booster for Home

  • 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. The weBoost Installed Home Complete is the only consumer booster currently on the market that allows for a complete, professional installation at no extra cost to you.

Note that the installation is only available for residential buildings.

4G LTE Data Cellular Signal Boosters For Vehicles


The best Cell Phone Signal Booster for Car

  • 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 for all phones and all carriers
  • Boosts 698-716 MHz, 729-746 MHz, 777-787 MHz, 824-894 MHz, 1850-1995 MHz, 1710-1755/2110-2115 MHz cellular radio frequencies.
  • Sleek, metallic exterior designed to displace excess heat for peak performance
  • Custom bracket for under seat or in-truck mounting options
  • Easy to use SMB connectors
  • Better talk, text, and data speeds guaranteed

The weBoost Drive Reach is the newest, most powerful vehicle booster from Wilson Electronics.

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.

This is the best booster no matter where you live, as not only does it reach farther to the cell towers for rural areas, but it does a better job handling more noisy, urban environments than other signal boosters on the market. Highly recommended.

Budget

  • Boosts Voice, Text Messages, 3G & 4G LTE Data
  • For a single smartphone

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.

4G LTE Cellular Signal Booster For Commercial Buildings


Up to 25,000 sq. ft.

  • Boosts voice, text message, 3G & 4G LTE data
  • Works for multiple cell devices
  • Works with all carriers, networks, and phones
  • Up to +70 dB Gain
  • Great for urban areas

Our Review:

The Wilson Pro 70 Plus (Models: 463127 - 50 Ohm and 460127 - 75 Ohm) is an upgrade to the Wilson Pro 70.

With a gain of up to +70 dB, it can cover up to 25,000 sq ft under best conditions. Installers say on average they see around 10,000 to 14,000 sq ft with customized plans & additional antennas. However, poor signal areas and other factors such as internal building material and layout could see much less.

The Wilson Pro 70 Plus features the same technology like the Wilson Pro 70 with one key difference: better attenuation.

What does this mean? A key downside to the Wilson Pro 70 is that it can be overwhelmed by powerful signal such as being too close to the cell tower that it’s pulling in too much and overloading the repeater. However, the Pro 70 Plus comes with superior attenuation processes which manages to put on the ear plugs as the cell site screams into the microphone.

If you have strong outdoor signal, a Pro 70 Plus is better equipped to handle it, ensuring your repeater does not overload. So we highly recommend this unit for city and urban centers rather than the Wilson Pro 70.

FAQ


1. Will boosting my 4G LTE speeds eat into my data plan?

It shouldn't, although you might find yourself using your allotted data more to where you might eat into it yourself. Definitely keep an eye on your usage rates.

2. Will this boost 5G signal?

Short answer? No.

Longer answer: The 5G standard has not been officially set by the 3GPP. Therefore carriers like AT&T and Verizon are beginning to build out 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.

3. Why would I buy a 4G LTE booster when 5G is coming out soon?

An excellent question.

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.

Indeed, there are still no defined standards as to what 5G will look like and how it will actually get into your home.

Meanwhile, 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.

4. Will this help my hotspot?

Yes!

Providing better signal to your phone will increase the power of its hotspot functionality. Think of it as a roundabout way to giving your computer or tablet the data speed boost you want. And it's only limited by the strength of the LTE signal reaching your phone - not some arbitrary restriction given by your cable provider.

Hope this helps!
