Small cottages, cabins, out-houses nooks and corners that are off the grid, not my choice can now speak!

Living in a remote, rural area also means having limited cell phone signal. And dropping calls, unable to use the internet, and at best, having spotty service isn’t quite the ultimate convenience you’re hoping for.
And let’s not forget about emergencies, too. Being able to connect becomes the only thing that matters then.
But there are some solutions

1. Wifi Calling
If your cabin has landline internet connection (like AT&T Uverse or Time Warner Cable), your phone may be able to use a feature called Wi-Fi calling. Meaning it uses your broadband landline to make calls instead of using cellular 3G & 4G LTE signals.
The following are the major carriers:
T-Mobile (supports any Wi-fi capable phones)
Verizon (supports select Samsung, Apple, LG, and HTC models)
AT&T (supports mostly Samsung Galaxy & Apple iPhone models)
Sprint (supports most Android & Apple phones)
If you don’t have landline internet, then this can’t be an option.
2. Your Carrier Builds a New Tower Near You
Carriers are always building new cell towers; however, most are built where the customers are active.
In other words, if there are thousands of signal hungry citizens (i.e. money), AT&T will construct a tower. Most likely not, until Sprint or Verizon can justify the cost.
3. Cell Phone Signal Booster
Cell phone boosters (a.k.a cell phone repeaters) are all-carrier approved devices that boost weak 2G, 3G, and 4G LTE cellular signals.
If you have any type of weak outside signal, a cell phone signal booster potentially can deliver more bars, more coverage, better talk & text, and faster internet & data.
This is how a cell phone booster works in 3 easy steps:
1. The Outside Antenna pulls in weak signal surrounding your property.
2. The Amplifier boosts the signal multiple times, up to 32X.
3. The Inside Antenna rebroadcasts the enhanced signal inside your cabin.

The following are the key functions of a booster:

  • Boosts 2G, 3G, 4G LTE signals.
  • Works for all carriers (AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint, etc)
  • Works for all cellular devices (cell phones, smartphones, tablets, etc.)
  • Complete easy-to-install kits
  • One-time purchase, no monthly fees or recurring fees
  • Set-&-forget-it devices, automatically adjusts for maximum signal boost
  • 2-year manufacturer’s warranty (anything goes wrong, you get a new one)
  • 30-day better signal or money back guarantee

  • Free shipping & no taxes outside Texas
  • Made in the USA
  • Disadvantages of a Booster:

  • Does not boost landline broadband wi-fi internet.
  • Does not create cellular signal. There must be some signal for it to boost.
  • Needs “enough” weak signal in order to provide decent signal amplification.

  • NOTE: Cell phone signals are basically radio waves (the AM/FM kind). They operate within a certain standard: -50 dB to -120 dB. dB stands for decibels.

    -50 dB is basically full bars. -120 dB is a dead zone.
    If your outside signal ranges from:

  • -50 to -89 dB, then a signal booster will produce very good signal boost inside your cabin (3 to 5 bars).
  • -90 to -99 dB, then a signal booster will produce good to average boost (2 to 4 bars).
  • -100 to -114 dB, then a signal booster will produce average to small boost (1 to 2 bars).
  • At -115 dB to -120 dB, a boost might have limited to no impact, unless you get a pro-grade model.
