7 Best MetroPCS Cell Phone Signal Boosters for Home, Office, and Car

Metro by T-Mobile (formerly MetroPCS) is one of the largest prepaid wireless carriers in the USA. As a T-Mobile subsidiary and MVNO, Metro also has extensive 3G & 4G LTE network coverage across America with reach up to 99% of the population.

However, there are times when you're just not getting relialble service leading to dropped calls, slow internet, and spotty reception.

Lucky for you, there's a simple solution: just boost your Metro 3G & 4G LTE signals.


The Problem: Why Your Metro 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 Metro 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 Metro 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.

Why be a servant to the cell tower? Bring the cell tower inside your home! Below are our top recommendations.


Metro Cell Phone Signal Booster For Home


Our Pick

  • 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 booster 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.

Upgrade

  • 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 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.

  • FREE shipping, no minimum purchase.

Budget

  • 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.

Metro Cell Phone Signal Booster For Car


Our Pick

  • 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.

Updated: The new & improved version of the weBoost Drive 4G-M features a stronger inside antenna with +5.1 dB gain compared to the +4.3 dB gain of the previous model (# 470108). Links have been updated to point to the new version.

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

  • 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 booster 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.

Budget

  • 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.

Metro Cell Phone 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


Will a Metro by Signal Booster work with my Metro phone?

Absolutely.

Whether it's an iPhone, Galaxy, Pixel, or any phone, if it's working on the Metro or T-Mobile network, then a Metro signal booster will also improve reception to your phone.

Will a Metro Signal Booster also improve my mobile hotspot?

Yes without question.

Improving your incoming 3G & 4G LTE service to your Metro phone will also improve its mobile hotspot service (also called personal hotspot, WiFi hotspot, and tethering) and mobile hotspot device like Alcatel LINKZONE or other 4G routers.

What if I switch carriers in the future?

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

They are future-proof!

What about Metro 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 Metro 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.
