Whether you’re at home or on the go, there’s always the chance that your cell phone will lose its signal and you’ll be left unable to make calls, send texts, or browse the Internet. 

The problem with poor cell phone service can seem like it’s only a minor inconvenience — unless it happens to you when you’re in an emergency situation and need to call 911 or in the middle of an important job interview and need to email your resume. If you’re looking to avoid these unfortunate situations, consider boosting your cell phone signal through one of these five ways

1) The weBoost Home Room

The weBoost Home Room is a powerful cellular booster for use indoors. It reduces dropped calls, improves 3G/4G data speeds, and boosts voice clarity. Installed as close to a window as possible, it provides coverage for every room in your house or office. The Home Room is easy to install, with everything needed included in the kit. Plus, it’s backed by a 30-day money back guarantee.

It boosts cellular signals for all major US carriers including AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon. That means less dropped calls in your house or office—no more wondering whether you’re in range. 

The Home Room improves data speeds by up to 400% when combined with a compatible 4G LTE data card (not included). You also get enhanced voice clarity over your cell phone, even if there are several people talking at once. Simply plug in any 3G or 4G USB modem (sold separately) for boosted signal strength. 

2) The weBoost Drive X

The weBoost Drive X is a cellular booster for your car. It amplifies the cell phone signal inside your vehicle, strengthening your connection so you can maintain calls, send texts and use data without interruption. 

The booster is compatible with all U.S. networks, including Verizon Wireless, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile. It’s also worth noting that this device won’t work outside of a car because it needs an antenna to send its boosted signal to a nearby tower in order to do its job.

3) The HiBoost Home 10K

It’s no secret how important it is to be in contact with loved ones when they are away. When you can’t be there in person, the next best thing is a phone call. However, sometimes cell towers just don’t reach your house (or your destination). This means that when your loved one calls, he or she might not get through. 

The HiBoost Home 10K solves this problem by boosting your cell phone signal up to 10k feet away from a tower—even if he or she lives across town or across country. It also boosts Wi-Fi for up to five simultaneous connections at any location!

4) The SureCall Fusion4Home

The SureCall Fusion4Home is an excellent option for those looking to get a reliable signal booster for their home. It works with all carriers, including Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, and many others. It also has a weatherproof design which can withstand harsh conditions such as rain or snow. 

The Fusion4Home is easy to install with just four screws which makes it perfect for renters who need to adhere to their lease terms.

5) The Cel-Fi Go X

The Cel-Fi Go X is a plug-and-play booster for your cell phone. It is perfect for those who have spotty service at home or work, and it can be used in cars, trucks, RVs, boats, boats with living quarters, and other recreational vehicles. 

The device is designed to provide more than an eightfold increase in 4G LTE coverage inside your building or vehicle. The installation process is simple: just plug it into an AC outlet.

What to keep in mind while purchasing signal booster

When purchasing signal booster for your home, it is important to keep in mind that there are two different types of signal boosters: those designed for inside use and those designed for outside use. 

An inside-use signal booster must be plugged into a nearby electrical outlet or power strip, while an outside-use signal booster should be installed by a professional. Outside-use signal boosters require running cable from the antenna to your building’s roof or exterior wall.

And lastly always remember that signal strength should be one of your primary considerations when purchasing a signal booster.
