I was going to post this a couple of weeks ago, but I wanted to test it out before writing about it.
Amazon now carries “Wireless Extenders Cell Phone Signal Booster”
The way it works is that you set up the antenna wherever you have the best signal, most likely outside an upstairs window or in your attic.
There is a wire that connects the antenna to the base system.
The base system is placed where you have the weakest cell phone signal and it repeats the good cell phone signal for 2,500 sq. ft.
I set this up in my house, and where I used to have 1-2 bars downstairs I now get 4-5 bars. Additionally I used to not have a signal in my basement, but now I do!
Is it worth $230? Try it out for yourself, if it doesn’t work out for you, you won’t be out a single penny!
There are 3 versions of this product.
-An 800MHz booster for Cingular/ATT, Verizon, and Alltel. This one retails for $299, and is on sale from Amazon for just $230 shipped.
-A 1900MHz booster for Sprint and T-Mobile. This one also retails for $299, and is on sale from Amazon for just $230 shipped.
-A 800MHz/1900MHz booster that works for all companies. This one retails for $399, but is currently not available from Amazon.
-It is critical to follow the directions carefully for you to get the optimal signal boost!
-If you don’t have a cell phone signal anywhere in or around your house then this will not solve your problem!
