The Best Cell Phone Booster for Rural Areas: Complete Guide

cell phone signal boosters for rural areas header

This is the life, isn't it?

You're in your deep woods cabin or mountain cottage, off the grid, away from the noise, and surrounded by that peace only Mother Nature can provide.

But, as they say, every rose has its thorns.

The Problem: How to Get Cell Phone Service When There's None?

Living in a remote, rural area also means having limited cell phone signal. And dropping calls, unable to use the internet, and at best, having spotty service isn't quite the ultimate convenience you're hoping for.

And let's not forget about emergencies, too. Being able to connect becomes the only thing that matters then.

The Solution: Cell Phone Signal Booster for Rural Areas

It's simple: Boost your 3G & 4G LTE signal!

A cell phone signal booster for rural areas takes existing weak signal, amplifies it up to 32X, and rebroadcasts the enhanced signal inside your remote cabin, cottage, or off-the-grid home:

  • Better 3G & 4G LTE coverage, reliable reception, and faster internet service.
  • Works for all phones & cellular devices (tablet, hotspot, laptop, etc.)
  • Works for all national & regional carriers (Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, US Cellular, and more!)
  • Complete kits, easy to install.
  • No monthly fees, no need to connect to Wifi.
  • 90 Day Better Signal or Money Back Guarantee!

Best Cell Phone Booster For Rural 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.

Our Review

This is the Miss America model. The Make America Great Again. The Grab Them By The Bars.

The The weBoost Connect 4G has been the bestselling home & cabin signal booster for 6 years and counting.

Although possible for users to enjoy up to 5,000 square feet of signal boost coverage under the best conditions, our customer feedback shows an average of around 2,500 to 3,000 square feet in the suburbs and 1,000 to 2,000 in the countryside or semi-rural areas.

Most cabins & cottages are usually under 2,500 sq ft, so we're confident this is the model you'll want to start with first.

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


  • 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 the most powerful consumer home unit available. With an additional +5 dB over the Connect 4G, it's roughly a shade over 3x more powerful

There are two scenarios for upgrading to this unit:

One, you have a large cabin over 4,000 sq ft. With maximum coverage at 7,500 sq ft, people with below to average outside signals can expect a range of 3,000 to 6,000 square feet of coverage.

Two, if you live in an extremely poor signal area (either cell tower distance or building material), then you'll need the absolute best to get any kind of coverage.

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


  • 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:

If cost is a big factor, then the weBoost Home 4G is a decent starter kit depending on these two conditions:

One, you have a cabin under 1,000 sq ft. Under best conditions, the weBoost Home 4G can cover up to 1,500 sq ft. However, real-world conditions show it's better suited as a desktop-range booster with maybe one-room coverage depending on quality of outside signal. So expect a range of 20 to 500 sq ft.

Two, you MUST have good outside signal. Most times, it's our building material that disrupts our cellular service, so even though you might have decent signal outside, indoors will be a mess because of metal, concrete, and other material.

A good rule of thumb: If you have good enough signal just right outside your cabin but not inside, a weBoost Home 4G may work for you.

If you do have spotty outside signal to begin with, we'd recommend starting with the other two models above.

Best Cell Phone Booster For Rural Commercial Building

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 rural & urban areas

Our Review:

This isn't a consumer unit.

This is a commercial pro-grade signal booster. However, for people with large cabin complexes or live in an extremely fringe "I can't get any internet or signal" area, the WilsonPro line of commercial boosters should do the trick.

Options range from 15,000 to 100,000 square feet. The Wilson Pro 70 Plus hits right in the middle, providing coverage up to 25,000 square feet; for the most part, it averages around 10,000 to 20,000 square feet depending on the configuration and outside signal.

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

Best Cell Phone Signal Booster For Vehicles in Rural Areas

Our Pick

  • 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 weBoost Drive 4G-M, which is better suited for the city.

So that means the weBoost Drive 4G-X has 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.

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


  • 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.

  • FREE shipping, no minimum purchase.

1. How well do cell phone boosters work in rural areas?

Pretty well.

Cell phone signal boosters were made for people in low-service areas where AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint, and other regional carriers didn't really extend their coverage area.

So instead of heading into town or begging for a bar, a cell phone booster reaches to AND from the cell tower to deliver reliable reception.

2. How does it boost cell phone reception in remote areas?

A cell phone signal booster works by doing 3 main things:

  • The Outside Antenna pulls in existing 3G & 4G LTE signal.
  • The Amplifier boosts signal up to 32X.
  • The Inside Antenna broadcasts the boosted signal inside your cabin or cottage.

It's important to note that a cell phone booster ENHANCES signal but does not create it. Think of it as healing the injured and not raising the dead.

Usually, if you can get some signal near your home but not inside, a cell phone booster will work for you.

Besides, we provide a 90 Day Better Signal or Money Back Guarantee, because we want people to be completely happy with their boosters.

3. Does a cell phone signal booster work for camping?

It depends what you mean by camping.

If you're talking about campgrounds, inside a building with electricity, then yes, a booster will improve signal.

If you're talking about being outside and not having access to wall outlet, then, no a booster will not work.

4. Does a cell phone booster work for mountains?


If signal can reach to the mountain or close enough to it, a cell phone booster will pull it in, unless you're on something like Mount Everest.

5. Will a cell phone booster work with my phone?

Yes, yes, and yes.

Whether it's an iPhone, Galaxy, Pixel, or any phone, if you've got paid service, then a signal booster will also improve reception to your phone.

6. What if I switch carriers in the future?

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

They are future-proof!

7. What about 5G service?

Yeah... about that.

The 5G standard has not been officially set by the 3GPP. Therefore carriers like AT&T and Verizon 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.

8. Will 5G make my signal booster obsolete?


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.
