13 Best Cell Phone Repeaters: The Complete Guide


What is a Cell Phone Repeater?


A cell phone repeater (also known as cellular repeater) is a three-part system that pulls in weak signal, amplifies (or repeats) the signal, and then broadcasts the signal to an area in need such as your home, office, or vehicle.


Why Do You Need a Cell Phone Repeater?


Cell tower distance, trees, mountains, metal, glass, concrete, thick walls, even weather– a variety of things can interfere with your cell phone coverage everyday.

A cellular repeater improves your 3G & 4G LTE signal strength so that your phone and cell tower are more reliably connected.

Think of a cellular repeater like a megaphone. It takes what you have and multiplies the performance.

Whole Home Coverage (up to 5,000 sq ft)


  • Whole home coverage:
    Improves 4G LTE & 3G coverage up to 5,000 sq ft (most homes).
  • Most popular home booster:
    Trusted by hundreds of thousands of people across rural & urban America.
  • High-powered range: Up to +65 dB gain for 32X stronger signal.

The The weBoost Connect 4G has been the most recommended home cell phone repeater for nearly 5 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.

  • Lifetime support.

Large Home Coverage (up to 7,500 sq ft)


  • Whole home coverage:
    Improves 4G LTE & 3G coverage up to 7,500 sq ft (large buildings).
  • For Large Building Coverage:
    Trusted by hundreds of thousands of people across rural & urban America.
  • High-powered range: Up to +70 dB gain for 32X stronger signal.

Our Review:

The weBoost Connect 4G-X is absolutely the most powerful consumer line repeater 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.

Only at
  • FREE shipping, no minimum purchase.
  • 90 Day money back guarantee.
  • Lifetime support.

1 Room Coverage (up to 1,500 sq ft)


  • 1-2 room coverage:
    Improves 4G LTE & 3G coverage up to 1,500 sq ft.
  • High-powered range: Up to +60 dB gain for 32X stronger signal.

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.

Cars & Trucks


  • 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 weBoost Drive 4G-X is the most powerful car cell phone repeater in the market capable of boosting up to 4 cellular devices.

It features up to +3 dB gain compared to other car repeaters on the uplink, which technically translates to 2x the power increase or about 30-60% more reach to the cell tower in real-world results.

We recommend the Drive 4G-X primarily to those who live or drive frequently in rural areas, where distance to and from cell towers is the biggest problem.

People in urban areas may get away with a less expensive model, but for people who live off the grid, this is the first unit we recommend.

RVs & Campers


For Stationary

  • Boosts Talk, Text, Internet, 3G or 4G LTE Data
  • Amplifies multiple cellular devices & carriers
  • Works even in extremely rural and remote areas
  • Up to +65 dB Gain

Our Review:

The most popular home signal repeater, now retrofitted and optimized for RV use. Designed for towable RVs. Comes with a telescoping 25' mast, secure mounting brackets, and powerful interior and exterior antennas guaranteed to cover your whole RV, even with very weak outdoor signal.

+15 dB gain compared to other mobile repeaters means it will greatly boost your RV's cell phone signal, even in remote areas with limited coverage.

While Moving

  • Boosts Talk, Text, Internet, 3G or 4G LTE Data
  • Amplifies multiple cellular devices
  • Up to +50 dB Gain

Our Review:

The weBoost Connect Drive 4G-X RV (Model: 470410) is the most powerful in-vehicle repeater while driving.

This kit pairs the weBoost Drive 4G-X with best-in-class indoor and outdoor antennas for improved coverage while moving.

Great for those who have a Class A or B RV, as it should cover most of the interior space boosting signal up to 4 phones. It works fairly well for Class C vehicles as well, although depending on whether you put it in the living area itself of the driver’s cabin will restrict which area is being boosted.

This repeater will still work while stationary, but it’s not as powerful as the weBoost Connect RV 65 which features +15 dB gain. But if you’re always moving and needing signal in the driver or passenger seat, the weBoost Drive 4G-X RV is the easy choice.

The weBoost Connect Drive 4G-X OTR is the most powerful over-the-road commercial truck repeater.

This kit pairs the weBoost Drive 4G-X with best-in-class durable and rugged outside omnidirectional antenna to withstand all elements while driving on the road. This unit is a fixed installation for the outside antenna which includes a 3-way mount, so great for fleet services needing cellular boost in the field.

This kit pairs the weBoost Drive Sleek with a rugged all-weather outside omnidirectional antenna to withstand harsh elements while on the road. The outside antenna is a fixed installation featuring a 3-way mount for installation flexibility.

Our Review:

The weBoost Drive 4G-X Marine Kit (Model: 470510-M) is the most powerful marine repeater for sailing on the lake or docked at the pier.

This kit pairs the weBoost Drive 4G-X with an all-weather antenna to withstand all the sea elements. The outside antenna is a fixed installation, so placement is important.

Boosts signal inside the cabin only.

Small Business


Up to 15,000 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 rural areas

Our Review:

The Wilson Pro 70 (Models: 465131 - 50 Ohm and 463134 - 75 Ohm) is the most popular commercial repeater.

With a gain of up to +70 dB, it can cover up to 15,000 sq ft under best conditions. Installers say on average they see around 5,000 to 8,000 sq ft. However, poor signal areas and other factors such as internal building material and layout could see much less.

Nearly 73% of commercial buildings in the USA are 10,000 sq ft or less, so the Wilson Pro 70 is a good basic kit. Many owners of large homes also select this kit when they need something more robust than the residential units.

Great for rural areas. Commercialized areas, however, should stick to the Wilson Pro 70 Plus due to possible attenuation issues (see next).

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.

Our Review:

The Wilson Pro 1000 (Model: 460236) is a leader in the space of efficient and cost-effective enterprise repeaters.

Installers say on average they see around 15,000 to 25,000 sq ft with customized plans & additional antennas.

The Wilson Pro 4000 (Model: 460231) is a the most power commercial repeater in the market.

It is not just one repeater but 4 repeaters in a single unit capable of providing up to 100,000 sq ft under best conditions. Our Installers say they’ve seen coverage ranging from 40,000 to 60,000 sq ft with customized plans & additional antennas.

FAQ


1. Who makes the best cell phone repeater?

Wilson Electronics (weBoost & WilsonPro) by a wide, wide margin. They're more than 3 times more popular with professionals.

2. How does a cell phone repeater work?

A cell phone repeater works with 3 major components:

  • The Outside Antenna pulls in weak 3G & 4G LTE signal from your carrier.
  • The Amplifier boosts signal up t 32X.
  • The Inside Antenna rebroadcasts the amplified signal inside your home.

3. Will a cell phone signal repeater work for my phone & carrier?

Absolutely.

It will work with any phone or cellular device (hotspot, tablet, laptop, etc.) that works on your carrier.

4. What if I switch carriers in the future?

Our cell phone repeaters are multi-carrier systems. This means they are also compatible with AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint, and other major and local carriers.

They are future-proof!

5. Will 5G make my signal repeater 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 hava a different answer by then.
