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 cell phone signal inside your house 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 home cell phone signal booster recommendations.

Cell Phone Signal Boosters For Home

The Best Cell Phone Signal Booster for Medium Sized Homes

weboost home multiroom
weBoost Home MultiRoom - 470144

Great for midsize homes with a strong outside signal or small homes with weak outside signal.

Buy Now at $549.99
  • 5G ready booster
  • 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.

The Best Professionally Installed Signal Booster for Home

weBoost Installed Home Complete - 474445

Whole-home coverage for large homes with strong outside signal or midsize homes with weak outside signal.

Buy Now at $1,199.99
  • Superior cell phone service for your entire home. 5G Ready
  • 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
  • Needs no WiFi connection or monthly fees. One time purchase.

Designed, as you might expect, to cover an entire home. The weBoost Installed Home Complete certainly has that power, fully capable of covering a large home with decent outside signal or a midsize home with weak outdoor signal. Expect up to 7,500 square feet of coverage with flawless outside signal, but a more reasonable estimate would be somewhere between 3,500 and 5,500 square feet. In addition, in order to really maximize your coverage, additional antennas are required, especially if you’re trying to cover more than one floor. If you live in a very weak signal rural area, this is your best option for decent coverage - you’ll probably be getting about 2,000 square feet from it.

There are two major considerations on whether or not to buy the weBoost Installed Home Complete . This booster works best for large residential homes, suburban or rural areas, and more. The effective coverage area will vary depending on the strength of your OUTSIDE signal, so it's important to understand – if you’re expecting 7,500 square feet of coverage but have only one bar outside your home, you won’t get it. Realistic expectations of coverage in that scenario are more like 2,500-4,000 square feet.

The other major consideration is whether or not you’d prefer to install it yourself, or have someone do it for you.

The Best Cell Phone Signal Booster for One or Two Rooms

weboost home studio
weBoost Home Studio - 470166

For small homes and office spaces for all carriers.

Buy Now at $349.99
  • 5G ready - Amplifies talk, text, and data
  • Up to 2,000 sq ft of coverage under best conditions
  • Up to +60 dB of gain
  • Works with all cellular devices across all carriers
  • Compact design, fits on any flat surface

The weBoost Home Studio is the newest and most affordable home cell phone signal booster. Perfect for people on a budget who only need to improve their cellular signal in small areas.

Under perfect condition, meaning a strong outside signal and little to no cellular signal interference, the Home Studio can cover areas up to 2,000 sq ft, enough for a small home, home office, apartment, dorm, or condo. If you live in an area with weak outside signal, you’ll probably get around 200-500 sq ft – enough for 1-2 rooms.

The Home Studio is a great starter kits if you have decent outside signal but struggle with a reliable connection in the rooms where it matters. If you live in a weak signal area, you're very unlikely to see the results you want with this booster and should consider an upgrade to the weBoost Home MultiRoom.

Cell Phone Signal Booster for Extra Large Homes and Heavy Duty Coverage

wilsonpro 70 plus
WilsonPro 70 Plus - 463127

For midsize commercial buildings and large homes with weak outside signal.

Buy Now at $1,199.99
  • 5G ready - Boosts talk, text, 4G LTE and 3G Data
  • Commercial signal booster and large, fringe area homes
  • Up to 25,000 sq ft of coverage under best conditions
  • Up to +70 dB gain
  • XDR technology to manage signal overload
  • Works with all cellular devices across all carriers
  • Expansion kits available to maximize coverage
  • Great for urban and rural areas

The WilsonPro 70 Plus is the most popular commercial pro-grade cell phone signal booster designed to amplify cellular signals inside midsize commercial buildings. Technically, it’s not a consumer unit, but in areas where maintaining a reliable signal seems impossible, the WilsonPro line of commercial boosters should do the trick.

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 the same price as the weBoost Installed Home Complete, it’s even worth considering if you live in urban areas with a big house, as it can handle powerful signals 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.

Home Cell Signal Booster FAQs

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 4G, LTE, and 3G 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.
