7 Best Verizon Signal Boosters for Home, Office, and Car

verizon signal boosters header

Verizon has one of the largest and fastest 4G LTE networks in the USA. However, there are times when poor coverage and spotty service affects you every day.

Lucky for you, there's a simple solution: boost your Verizon 4G signal.

Let's look at the top 5 reasons why you're getting poor reception and why it probably won't get better.

The Problem:


Cell phone signals are radio waves, the AM-FM kind. As with all wind and waves, they easily go in different directions without notice. Almost anything under the sun can change, absorb, and block your Verizon service. Here are the top 5 examples:

  • Cell tower distance
  • Outside interference: Trees, hills, mountains, valleys, and tall structures.
  • Building material: 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).

Any combination of these problems can drastically reduce your service. Don't think cell tower distance is only a rural or countryside problem. It's also a big factor in the city, too.

That's because many cell towers in the city transmit signal at a lower power than rural cell towers, because carriers want to avoid interference with other cell towers. While cell towers in the countryside can broadcast for miles, in the city, it might just be several hundred yards.

In any case, it doesn't matter if you're operating in an urban or rural area, poor cell phone signal affects us all. If you have anything metal like a roof or thick external and internal walls, you'll be searching for reception all day.


The Solution:


A cell phone signal booster takes any existing 4G, 4G LTE, or 3G Verizon signal, amplifies it up to 32X, and rebroadcasts the boosted signal into your home, office, or car.

This equals more bars and 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.

Best Type of Signal Boosters:


The signal boosters we recommend are very versatile:

  • They work for all Verizon customers & subsidiaries (TracFone, Straight Talk, Boom! Mobile, etc).
  • They are future proof, also boosting signal for AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint and other major carriers.
  • They work for all phones & cellular devices.
  • They are complete kits and are easy to install.
  • They have no monthly fees associated with them, and 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 Verizon 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 Verizon 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.

Why be a slave to Verizon's cell tower? Bring the cell tower inside your home! Below are our top recommendations.



Verizon Cell Phone Signal Booster For Home


The Best Verizon Cell Phone Signal Booster for Home

  • Up to 5,000 sq. ft. of Verizon 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 Verizon signal. As its name suggests, you can expect multiple rooms of coverage with the unit assuming decent outside Verizon 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 Verizon 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 Verizon 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.

Upgrade

  • Up to 7,500 sq. ft. of coverage under best conditions
  • Up to +72 dB of gain, with 24 dBm uplink and 12 dBm downlink
  • 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

Our Review:

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 Verizon 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 Verizon 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

  • 1-2 room coverage:
    Improves 4G, LTE, and 3G Verizon 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.

Verizon Cell Phone Signal Boosters For Cars


The best Verizon Cell Phone Signal Booster for Car

  • 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 for all phones and all carriers, including Verizon
  • Sleek, metallic exterior designed to displace excess heat for peak performance
  • Better talk, text, and data speeds guaranteed

The weBoost Drive Reach is the newest, most powerful vehicle booster from Wilson Electronics, and is an ace at boosting Verizon signal.

A slim outside antenna picks up signal. A discreet 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.

This is the best booster no matter where you live, as not only does it reach farther to the cell towers for rural areas, but it does a better job handling more noisy, urban environments than other signal boosters on the market. Highly recommended for Verizon customers.

Budget

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

Our Review:

The weBoost Drive 4G-X has 2x the uplink power compared to the Drive 4G, but less performance than the Drive Reach. At $50 less, however, it's still a good option if you're on a budget.

Cradle Solution

  • Boosts Voice, Text Messages, Verizon 3G & 4G LTE Data

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.

FAQ


1. Is a Verizon Signal Booster the same thing as a Verizon Network Extender?

No. They're completely different products.

A Verizon Network Extender needs to be connected to a broadband landline internet to work. In short, it acts as a personal cell tower by converting your broadband landline to cell signals and vice versa.

A Verizon Signal Booster takes your pre-existing weak cell signals, and amplifies that 3G & 4G LTE into your home, office, or car. Think of it like a megaphone, it enhances the signal for your phone to pick up.

2. Which is better: Verizon Signal Booster or Verizon Network Extender?

A Verizon Signal Booster and here's why:

A Verizon Network Extender needs internet (in-home WiFi router) to work. It requires a minimum speed up of 10 Mbps downlink and 5 Mbps uplink to provide reliable service.

But here are the pitfalls:

  • First, you need to have a broadband landline internet from an internet service provider such as Xfinity, Fios, Cox, AT&T Fiber, etc. to use a Network Extender.
  • Second, you need minimum speeds at 10Mpbs download, 5 Mpbs upload for it work properly.
  • Third, your smartphone can use WiFi calling instead and it's technically free.

But if you don't have a landline internet service provider nor have access to it–especially rural areas, then a Verizon booster is the best choice, since it doesn't require any type of internet or WiFi service to work.

It simply reaches farther to the nearest cell tower, bypasses multiple interference, and brings stronger signal to your phone.

3. Will a Verizon Signal Booster also improve my Verizon hotspot device?

Absolutely.

Verizon mobile hotspot routers use 3G & 4G LTE signals, and that's what signal boosters do: enhance 3G & 4G LTE signal!

From the Verizon Jetpack to MiFi, it'll get better signal and speeds, especially if the Verizon 4G router has an external antenna port that can directly connect to the Verizon signal booster.

4. Will a Verizon Signal Booster work with my Verizon phone?

Yes, yes, and yes.

Whether it's an iPhone, Galaxy, Pixel, or any phone, if it's working on the Verizon network, then a signal booster will also improve reception to your phone.

5. What if I switch carriers in the future?

Our Verizon 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!

6. What about Verizon 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.

7. Will 5G make my Verizon 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.
