US Cellular is the country’s fifth largest full-service wireless carrier and offers an expansive 4G LTE network that purportedly reaches roughly 99% of their 4.8 million customers.
And while the network might technically cover many of these customers, the number that actually have a strong enough signal to fully access 4G is a different story entirely.
So, in order to take full advantage of 4G LTE as well as 3G, you first need to find out how to boost your weak cellular signal.
Are you having trouble figuring out why your cell isn’t hopping onto 4G, leaving you with lackluster reception and unpredictable coverage? You’ve probably got a weak signal.
Many people think a weak signal simply comes from being too far away from a transmitter tower. And though being on the edge of a coverage area will definitely leave you with spotty reception, the true culprit is more than often interference.
There are a wide range of both objects and forces that can interfere with your phone’s signal. Solid, dense material like the metal, concrete, and rebar found in most buildings are a pretty common cause of signal interference. And when you combine that with the lack of reception in tunnels and subways, city-dwellers may have an especially hard time connecting to 4G LTE.
It’s not just manmade objects either. Mountains, forests, clouds, precipitation and even abnormal changes in temperature can easily deflect, warp, and significantly weaken your cell signal, leaving you with choppy calls and snail’s pace downloads.
So how the heck are you supposed to get the reception you signed up for if practically everything around you causes interference? By using a US Cellular Signal Booster.
These nifty little devices boost the strength of your weakened cellphone signal up to 32 times its original power, giving you the coverage you need in especially hit-or-miss areas like your basement or your vehicle.
Just think about all the different benefits a stronger signal will give you:
You may have heard the term MicroCell thrown around when it comes to the topic of signal boosting. Let’s be clear: these are not MicroCells! MicroCells usually require a landline internet connection with monthly landline internet fees.
And although US Cellular doesn’t sell these MicroCells as it is, don’t be fooled into thinking you should have to pay your cellular company even more monthly fees just to get the kind of service you were promised in the first place.
Signal boosters on the other hand don’t require any landline connection or fees. Instead, they use the signal your device itself is creating and extend it by amplifying it up to 32X the original power.
If you want a stronger signal on your terms then, your best bet is a signal booster.
In the world of FCC-certified signal boosters there are plenty of choices out there: some provide a bargain-based product that may or may not do as it claims, others charge an exorbitant price for devices that fail within their first year.
But when it comes to best-in-class US Cellular cell phone boosters that offer power and peace of mind backed up by a money-back guarantee, weBoost by Wilson Electronics has proven itself to be an industry leader for years.
That means you don’t have to switch carriers to get rid of those pesky half-full loading bars, far-too-frequent dropped calls, or the weak, muffled voice quality that you deal with day in and day out.
One of the best things about weBoost signal boosters from Wilson Electronics is the fact that they’re so versatile. If, for instance, you end up leaving US Cellular you can use these same amplifiers with AT&T, Verizon, Sprint and other major carriers.
What about different phone types you ask? Well, weBoost extends the same signal boosting power across every cell phone brand.
That means iPhones, Androids, Samsungs, LGs, Blackberrys and more (basically all phones) are all fully compatible with weBoost signal boosters.
If you can’t seem to get a signal in the heart of a sprawling metropolis or in your miles-from-civilization hideaway, our US Cellular approved cell phone boosters will blast through the concrete jungle and extend to that far-off tower to give you the power and accessibility you need.
And better yet, we offer a variety of low-cost options, scaling from 1-2 room catered boosters all the way up to commercial-grade coverage at 100,000 sq ft!
And don’t forget about our vehicle signal boosters either. From cars and sedans to RVs and boats, our signal boosters will supercharge your cell signal no matter what kind of vehicle you’re in.

Our commitment to high-quality service as well as our premium US Cellular wireless network extenders are a few of the reasons we’ve landed on the Inc 5000 Fastest Growing Companies List for two years in a row.
Listed below are the six most popular US Cellular wireless boosters. They’re ranked from good to better to best and are in two categories: home cell phone boosters and car cell phone boosters. So have a look, and take your signal power into your own hands!
A sturdy and respectable choice for home-based signal booster. While the peak performance might get you 1-2 room coverage, some customers have reported needing to be closer to the antenna than they thought they’d have to be.
Those looking for a more consistent range estimate might find that it’ll perform well in a single office, home office (SOHO), and other small areas like cabins and apartment with good outside signal, but poor inside signal. Those need more power should look to the next item on our list.
This may be our most popular US Cellular signal booster. While some may find they’re able to get coverage of up to 5,000 sq ft, these results are common only under the best conditions depending on your current outside signal.
Customer surveys and reviews put the average around 2,500-3,000 sq ft. This is one of the best options out there for most size homes and small offices, farm houses, and building with less than 5,000 sq ft.
In general, this is the best bet for anyone out there who’s noticed dropped calls, off-and-on reception, and a typically weak signal.
When it comes to US Cellular 3G &4G signal boosters, it doesn’t get any more powerful than this.
With a maximum range of up to 7,500 sq ft and most customers with poor signals experiencing an average range of 5,500 sq ft, the weBoost Connect 4G-X is perfect for anyone with an especially weak signal. If you’re living or working in remote areas or multistory buildings, you’ll find this signal booster particularly useful.
This bargain-based car signal booster is a quality product for a cheap price that’s right at home one your dashboard. For best results, your smartphone should be placed in the cradle to get the maximum signal boost; could be a tight fit with wider smartphones though. Pair it with your Bluetooth headset for the best results!
A barely noticeable inside antenna and a discrete outside antenna help make the Drive 4G-M our most popular car signal booster by far. And although some customers reported they had to be closer than expected to the antenna, the majority reported at least a 2 to 3 bar increase in signal strength.
With maximum uplink power at 2x compared to other boosters, this leads to about 30-60% more reach to the cell tower. This leads to better reception, stronger signal, and reliable connections. If you want the best call quality you can get, even in extremely rural areas, the 4G-X is the way to go.
