.........I have horrible cell service here at my place. Like today, I have been booted off the WWW several times this evening on account of a weak cell signal. Anybody ever buy and install a home type booster? How well do they work. I'd love to have more than 1 or 2 bars!

There is no cell service where I live. We bought a booster from a local internet service provider and we now have perfect cell service in our house and most of our 5 acre property.

It works awesome!

My brother had the same problem. He put a booster on top of his TV antenna tower and it solved it. Don't know what he used though.

I'm in a dead zone with Verizon. Years ago I called to complain and they sent me a network extender. It's basically a mini cell tower. It works together with my wifi router. I now get good cell service where before I got none. It works out to about 300 feet before the signal drops of.


Eh...wot?

Thanks for the input folks. The prices sure are all over the board on these things! I see some for well under $100. Anyone buy the cheapo models from, say, Walmart, etc.?
