Getting good signal on your cell phone is hard.
Whether inside our home or on the road, we've all experienced spotty service. In a world where time is money and being connected is crucial for everyday life and convenience, no signal is no life.
While there are some best practices to get better cell signal, a majority of the times, you'll need to be closer to the cell tower OR boost the incoming and outgoing signal from your cell phone antenna.
This is called a cell phone antenna amplifier (also known as cell phone signal booster). These devices take weak cellular signals and amplify it up to 32X resulting in more bars, better coverage, and reliable reception. If you're constantly suffering from dropped calls, poor call quality, stuck texts, and slow internet, a cell phone antenna amplifier is your best bet.
They work with all 2G, 3G, and 4G frequencies on all phones and all carriers such as AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile, and others. Unlike microcells and femtocells, they don't require landline broadband internet. They're just one-time investments that guarantee more boost to your cell phone signal.
Basically, you're getting back what you're already paying for. You can either wait for your carrier to care or you can take action.
Below are our top 6 cell phone antenna amplifiers for homes and cars:
1. weBoost Home 4G 470101
The cheapest antenna amplifier for home. 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. 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.

2. weBoost Connect 4G 470103
This is a very popular signal repeater. You may get 5,000 sq ft under best conditions depending on your current outside signal. Our customer reviews and surveys put an average of 2,500-3,000 sq ft. 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 starting with this first.

3. weBoost Connect 4G-X 471104
This is absolutely the most powerful 3G & 4G antenna amplifier, extending coverage & service range up to 7,500 sq ft. Users with poor to mediocre outside signal can at least expect 5,500 sq ft of coverage although if you're on the fringe of a dead zone, you could expect less. If you have extremely poor signal (remote area) or need wide coverage (multistory buildings), the weBoost Connect 4G-X is your new best friend.

4. weBoost Drive 4G-S 470107
Very versatile car cell phone antenna amplifier. Cheap price. Can be placed on the dashboard. When paired with a bluetooth headset, it really shines. Smartphone has to be in the cradle for maximum signal boost. Might be a tight fit on wider smartphones.

5. weBoost Drive 4G-M 470108
The most popular car signal booster. Slim outside antenna to pick up signal. Indiscreet inside antenna to broadcast signal. Majority of customers say they're getting at least 2 to 3 more bars. A few did say they have to be closer to the inside antenna than anticipated to get more bars and amplified signal.

6. weBoost Drive 4G-X (470510)
You probably did a double-take. What's the difference between the Drive 4G-X and Drive 4G-M other than a letter change? Three words: maximum output power. Yes, both models have a cap at +50 dB gain. However, the weBoost Drive 4G-X has more output power. In fact, it's right at the edge legally allowed by the FCC. These results in more reach from the outside antenna to the cell tower. Perfect for extremely rural areas.
