Hotspot Booster: Improving Your Portable Wifi & Mifi Device

on August 28, 2018

Call them what you want: Jetpack, Mifi, Mofi, AirCard, Cradlepoint router, usb internet stick, mobile wifi... these are all essentially 4G routers that use the same technology.

They are mobile hotspot devices that use cellular signals & data (3G & 4G LTE) to create a personal wifi for your cell phone, tablet, and laptop.

While the ability to connect anywhere and everywhere is the biggest highlight of using a hotspot, there is a big limitation.

When the incoming cellular signal is good, then yes, your hotspot wifi performs as fast as any broadband landline internet.

But when your signal is poor?

  • Spotty wifi connection
  • Slow internet speeds
  • Dropped VoIP (Voice over IP) calls
  • Several minutes to load a single page
  • Limited streaming range

Lucky for you, there's a solution.

It's called a hotspot booster.

What is a Hotspot Booster?

A hotspot signal booster (also known as cell phone signal booster or cellular repeater) takes the incoming 3G & 4G LTE signal, amplifies it multiple times up to 32x, and then rebroadcasts the signal to an area in need (i.e. your hotspot router).  

It does this with 3 components:

  1. The Outside Antenna pulls in cellular signal.
  2. The Amplifiers boosts 3G & 4G LTE signal up to 32x.
  3. The Inside Antenna rebroadcasts the stronger signal to an area in need.

Stronger 3G & 4G LTE means better internet connection, faster streaming data, reliable & consistent service, and wider coverage area.

And depending if your hotspot has a port or adapter for an external antenna, with the right connector you might be able to DIRECTLY connect to the amplifier for maximum signal boost.

So what are the guarantees? 

  1. Works for all carrier hotspots (AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint, etc.)
  2. Works for all cellular devices (MiFi, cell phones, tablets, notebook, etc.)
  3. One time purchase, no monthly fees
  4. Independent device, does not need to be connected to landline internet
  5. Better signal or money back guarantee

Below are our top choices for improving hotspots ranging from home to car to commercial use. Start boosting your wifi hotspot signal instantly:



Hotspot Booster for Home

Our Pick

weboost connect 4g signal booster

weBoost Connect 4G (470103)

  • Boosts Voice, Text Messages, Internet 3G & 4G LTE Data
  • For Whole Home Coverage
  • Up to +65 dB Gain

Our Review:

The weBoost Connect 4G has been the most recommended home booster fours 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.

weboost connect 4g-x commercial signal booster

weBoost Connect 4G-X (471104)

  • Boosts Voice, Text Messages, Internet 3G & 4G LTE Data
  • For Large Building Coverage
  • Up to +70 dB Gain

Our review:

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

weboost home 4g signal booster

weBoost Home 4G (470101)

  • Boosts Voice, Text Messages, 3G & 4G LTE Data
  • For 1 Room Coverage
  • Up to +60 dB Gain

Our review: 

The weBoost Home 4G is a nice cheap option if you're on a budget and only need spot coverage for a single room.

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.

Hotspot Booster for Car

Our Pick

weboost drive 4g-m signal booster

weBoost Drive 4G-M (470121)

  • Boosts Voice, Text, 3G & 4G LTE Data
  • For a multiple cell devices
  • Up to +50 dB Gain

Our review:

The weBoost Drive 4G-M is the most popular & recommended car signal booster in North America. 

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.

Majority of customers in the city say they're getting at least 2 to 3 more bars. For off-the-grid areas, a few did say they have to be closer to the inside antenna than anticipated to get more bars and amplified signal. Boosts signal up to 4 devices.

weboost drive 4g-x signal booster

weBoost Drive 4G-X (470510)

  • 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 has 2x the uplink power compared to the Drive 4G. 

So that means about 30-60% more reach to the cell tower than your typical car booster.

For drivers in extremely rural or poor signal areas, the Drive 4G-X is the first option to look at. Boosts signal up to 4 devices.

weboost drive sleek 4g signal booster

weBoost Drive Sleek (470135)

  • Boosts Voice, Text Messages, 3G & 4G LTE Data
  • For a single smartphone
  • Up to +23 dB Gain

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.
