What is a Cell Phone Signal Booster?


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

It's simple: more bars equals 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.

The Wilson Amplifiers Advantage:


  • Works for 4G, 4G LTE, and 3G service.
  • Works for all carriers: Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, US Cellular, and other major carriers and MVNOs.
  • Works for all phones & cellular devices, including smartphones, tablets, hotspots, MiFi, and more.
  • Sold as complete kits with a simple installation.
  • We only sell FCC and carrier approved devices that are completely legal and safe.
  • No monthly fees, and no need to connect to WiFi.

For homes, whether you're in a remote rural area with weak outdoor signal or the big city with hard to penetrate buildings, our recommended cell phone boosters get the job done.

They'll extend your network signal with low-cost options for 1-2 rooms up to 7,500 sq ft coverage depending on your model and outside signal.

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


Cell Phone Signal Boosters For Home


The Best Cell Phone Signal Booster for Home

  • Up to 5,000 sq. ft. of 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 our most popular cellular booster for home, after replacing the old weBoost Connect 4G. 75% of customers who read about it on this post and bought one for themselves have found it to be the right fit for them, so it's usually the one we recommend first.

It's easy to see why it's so popular. It lies at the sweet spot of price, aesthetics, and efficiency, with a coverage range that usually works for most people. It features a drill-free installation with antennas that enhance your home decor rather than ruin it.

It also features a higher uplink and downlink power than previous generations of weBoost home boosters, meaning it's more likely to work well in a weak signal area. That said, expect reduced coverage. It's really important to understand that 5000 sq. ft. will only be achieved in optimal conditions, and that 2000-3000 sq. ft. is a much more realistic estimate of your coverage - even less in a very weak signal area.

If you live in a very 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.

It covers 7500 sq. ft. in optimal conditions, which will almost certainly require more indoor antennas. You're much more likely to see results of around 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 a really big house out in a very weak signal area, your best option is to go commercial with the Wilson Pro 70 Plus.

Budget

  • 1-2 room coverage:
    Improves 4G, 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 need to get much closer to the inside antenna than anticipated for better signal. It's a great option if you work at home from a desk 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. If you live in a weak signal area, you're very unlikely to see the results you want with this, and should consider an upgrade to the weBoost Home MultiRoom.

For Extra Large Homes and Heavy Duty Coverage

  • Up to 25,000 sq. ft. of coverage and +70 dB of gain
  • XDR technology to manage signal overload
  • Boosts Voice, Text Messages, 4G, LTE, and 3G Data
  • For Commercial Buildings and Large, Fringe Area Homes

Our Review:

If you've got a really big home in a very weak signal area and want the whole kit and caboodle, this is your best option. At only $100 more than the weBoost Home Complete, it's even worth considering if you live in urban areas with a big house, as it can handle powerful signal quite well. The only real drawback is it isn't built with homes in mind, so if you really value aesthetics, this is best kept out of sight and out of mind. However, you won't beat the power of this unit, and if utility is what you really value, you can't do better than this for your home.

FAQ

1. Who makes the best cell phone boosters?

Wilson Electronics (weBoost & Wilson Pro) by a wide, wide margin. They're more than 3 times more popular with professionals.

2. How does a cell phone signal booster work?

A cell phone signal booster works with 3 major components:

  • The Outside Antenna pulls in weak 3G & 4G LTE signal from your carrier.
  • The Amplifier boosts signal up to 32X.
  • The Inside Antenna rebroadcasts the amplified signal inside your home.

3. Will a cell phone signal booster work for my phone & carrier?

Absolutely.

It will work with any phone or cellular device (hotspot, tablet, laptop, etc.) that works on your carrier.

4. What if I switch carriers in the future?

Our cell phone signal boosters are multi-carrier systems. This means they are also compatible with AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint, and other major and local carriers.

They are future-proof!

5. Will 5G make my signal booster obsolete?

Nope.

4G and 4G LTE are 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 and 4G LTE are 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.
