We’ve all done it. You’re minding your own business and playing with your phone, go in someplace, and there’s no signal to keep playing. Wi-Fi? Maybe you’re safety aware and don’t always want to sign in to public Wi-Fi, or maybe it’s crowded and their Wi-Fi speeds are just too slow compared to data speeds. As for other places, what if this dataless place is your office or home? If you’re struggling to download small e-mails, photos, FaceTime, or send and receive calls, you might find yourself in need of a data booster.
Understand Data Coverage In Your Area
One of the best ways to improve your signal is easy and you can do it in just a few minutes.
Simply using a tool such as OpenSignal or NPerf allows for you find out how well your area is covered with 3G and 4G LTE signal. OpenSignal, in particular, allows you to break down coverage by each carrier to help you compare coverage. NPerf provides these same tools and doesn’t require you to download an app. These can be especially useful if you’re shopping for a new carrier too.
If you don’t want to use a 3rd party app you can always check with your carrier themselves to determine exactly what their coverage areas are. Here are links to each of the major North American carriers for your convenience; AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, and Sprint.
Data Booster? What’s that?
Data boosters, often called cell phone signal boosters, or cell phone signal amplifiers, work by helping to stabilize and strengthen incoming cell phone signals from available cellular towers and rebroadcasting the strengthened signal indoors to mobile and smart device users. In order to work, an antenna is installed outside on the roof of the building, which then collects available signal from local mast sites. This signal is then sent through a cable to the booster which is installed indoors, which then amplifies the signal. It then sends it through another cable to antenna(e) installed indoors for people to use. It strengthens users’ cell signals as well, ensuring clearer calls and stronger cellular data for people inside the booster’s area of effect. A strengthened, stable signal can potentially help those using cellular data as well, allowing for more stable service and better performance when running data-heavy apps. Data usage really sucks up battery life as well, and installing a cellular data booster can improve battery life in smart and mobile devices by allowing them to work more efficiently to send and receive signal.
So Who Needs a Cellular Data Booster?
If you find your signal lagging at your business, office, or home, a data booster could be a worthwhile investment. Vacation homes, workshops, storage buildings, garages, basements, and any other building affected by a poor signal can benefit from a data booster. It’s also great in rural areas where a signal can be spotty. If you’re the kind of person who is always on the go, vehicular models are available as well. All of HiBoost’s boosters are carrier agnostic, meaning they are compatible with every major U.S. cellular provider, including; AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, Verizon, and U.S. Cellular. All mobile devices are supported too, so you don’t have to worry about switching operating systems.
