Cricket Wireless is one of the largest prepaid wireless carriers in USA. As an AT&T-owned subsidiary and MVNO, Cricket Wireless also has extensive 3G & 4G LTE network coverage across America.

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 Cricket Wireless 3G & 4G LTE signals.

The Problem: Why Your Cricket Wireless 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 Cricket Wireless 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 Cricket Wireless 3G & 4G LTE Signal

Everything changes with a cell phone signal booster.

A cell phone signal booster takes any existing 3G & 4G 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.

Cricket Wireless Signal Boosters: Your Guarantees

Our recommended signal boosters are very versatile:

  • Works for all Cricket Wireless signal varieties.
  • Future proof: Also boosts signal for AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint and other major carriers.
  • Works for all phones & cellular devices.

  • 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 Cricket Wireless 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 Cricket Wireless 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.

Cricket Wireless Cell Phone Signal Booster For Home

The Best Cricket Wireless 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
  • Up to 5,000 sq. ft. of Cricket Wireless 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 Cricket signal. As its name suggests, you can expect multiple rooms of coverage with this unit assuming decent outside Cricket 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 Cricket 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 Cricket 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, or have a really big house you want to cover, consider its sister product, the weBoost Home Complete.

Most Powerful Cricket Wireless Cell Phone Signal Booster for Home

weboost home complete
weBoost Home Complete - 470145

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

  • 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

The weBoost Home Complete is absolutely the most powerful consumer line booster you can get. With an additional +5 dB over the Home MultiRoom, it's roughly a shade over 3x more powerful.

Best case scenarios can expect Cricket 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.

It features an aesthetically pleasing design to fit in with typical home decor.

If you have extremely poor Cricket signal (remote area) or need wide coverage for a building 5,000 sq ft and over like a warehouse, the weBoost Home Complete is your new best friend, and may spare you a painful breakup with a large company - a real pain in the butt.

Budget-Friendly Cricket Wireless Cell Phone Signal Booster for Home

weboost home studio

For small homes and office spaces for all carriers.

Buy Now at $349.99
  • 5G ready booster. 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.

Under perfect condition, meaning a strong outside signal and minimal Cricket signal interference, 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. Extreme remote locations will receive much less coverage.

For those extreme cases, consider the weBoost Home MultiRoom or the weBoost Home Complete for extended coverage.

Cricket Wireless Cell Phone Signal Boosters For Cars and Other Vehicles

The Best Cricket Wireless 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 Cricket
  • 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 newest, most powerful vehicle booster from Wilson Electronics, and is an ace at boosting Cricket signal.

A slim outside antenna picks up the signals, 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 get the boosted signal, so it's best for your typical sedan, truck, or SUV, but will work with any vehicle.

This is the best 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.

Highly recommended for Cricket customers.

Best Value Cricket Wireless Cell Phone Signal 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 4G LTE and 3G data. 5G ready
  • Up yo +50 dB of gain
  • Works with all cellular devices across all carriers, including Cricket
  • Extremely customizable: variants for any type of vehicle and setup

The weBoost Drive X is is a relatively inexpensive yet extremely reliable vehicle signal booster ideal for Cricket 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 4G and 5G Cricket 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 Cricket Wireless Cell Phone Signal Booster for Cars

weBoost Drive Sleek - 470135

Best for urban and suburban driving.

  • 5G ready
  • Boosts talk, Text, and Cricket Wireless data
  • For a single smartphone
  • Cradle signal booster
  • Up to +23 dB Gain
  • Works with all cellular devices across all carriers, including Cricket

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

Cricket Wireless Cell Phone Signal Boosters For Commercial Buildings

The Most Popular Cell Phone Signal Booster for Commercial Buildings

wilsonpro 70 plus
WilsonPro 70 Plus - 463127

For midsize commercial buildings and large homes with weak outside signal.

Buy Now at $1,199.99
  • 5G ready - Boosts talk, text, 4G LTE and 3G Data
  • For Commercial Building
  • Up to 25,000 sq. ft. of coverage under best conditions
  • Up to +70 dB Gain
  • Works with all cellular devices across all carriers
  • Expansion kits available to maximize coverage
  • Great for urban and rural areas

The WilsonPro 70 Plus is the most popular commercial pro-grade cell phone signal booster designed to amplify cellular signals inside midsize commercial buildings. However, for people with large homes, or those who live in extremely remote areas where maintaining a reliable Cricket signal seems impossible, the WilsonPro 70 Plus should do the trick.

With gains up to +70 dB, it can cover up to 25,000 sq ft under best conditions. For the most part, it averages around 10,000 to 15,000 sq ft, depending on the configuration and outside signal. Areas with extremely poor outside signal combined with other factors, such as internal building material and building layout, could receive much less coverage.

It's the best option for midsize commercial buildings that have strong outside signal but experience spotty service throughout the building, as well as large homes and small companies located in remote areas where tower distance makes maintain a reliable connection extremely difficult.

FAQs

Will a Cricket Wireless Signal Booster also improve my mobile hotspot?

Yes without question.

Improving your incoming 3G & 4G LTE service to your Cricket Wireless phone will also improve its mobile hotspot service (also called personal hotspot, WiFi hotspot, and tethering).

What if I switch carriers in the future?

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

They are future-proof!

What about Cricket Wireless 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 Cricket Wireless 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 hava a different answer by then.
