What is a basic wireless signal booster system, and how do I know if it will work for me?

Print Friendly and PDF Print

A basic system includes 4 components:

(1) a tower antenna to collect the signal from the cell tower;

(2) a signal booster to amplify the signal;

(3) a device antenna to broadcast the amplified signal throughout the interior of a building to be used by devices, and

(4) coax cable to connect the first three components.

To determine if a wireless signal booster will work for you, go outside and make a call. If you cannot complete the connection because of weak signal, move to another side of the building.

When you find a location where you can successfully make a call, this side of the building is where you should place the tower antenna. If you are receiving a strong enough signal to make a call outdoors, the signal is probably strong enough for a booster to amplify the signal for use inside the building.
