Bad cell signal? Try a booster

I got my mom one of these.

The only downside is it requires a 15' vertical separation between two antennas. There is a smaller one for an office or similar environment.

But I read good things. She lives out in the woods, and gets 1-2 bars in the driveway but not in the house.

It works with almost any carrier: AT&T, T-Mobile, and more. Once it's setup, it works without configuration.

Unlike the little microcell from AT&T.

All this does is receive the cell signal in your house at the base station, then transmit it over the antenna you put in the attic, outside on the roof, or in an upstairs window. It amplifies it and has more power output than a cell phone. It does the same thing to receive, since it has better reception than a phone.

There is a cable that runs between the two. You can use cable TV cabling as well for a better signal transfer.

The smaller version has a magnetic antenna and you can use it in your car and house in a single room.

I will update it when mom gets it fully installed. Or when her husband does.
