How can you increase your mobile phone signal strength?
Mobile phone signal strength can be a real problem for many people, particularly in rural areas or very densely built up areas.
Using a mobile signal booster or mobile repeater can help by amplifying the available signal to an acceptable or serviceable level
What causes poor signal strength?
Poor mobile signal strength could be because your carrier’s coverage of your area is poor. Also, depending on a variety of factors, such as the distance to a tower and obstructions such as buildings or trees, etc. Sometimes it is because the signal is blocked by the structure of your home or buildings in the vicinity
What does a mobile signal booster provide?
A mobile phone signal booster (also known as a repeater or amplifier) is designed to replicate the outside signal strength from a high point on the building into the property with as little loss as possible. Mobile phone repeaters amplify signals between a mobile phone and a network operator’s base station and can enhance coverage in situations where the signal is weak. So essentially, if you are getting 5 bars of 4G on the outside of your building you should be expecting to receive something similar on the inside
How do Cell Phone Signal Boosters Works
A cell phone booster function by collecting a weak signal, enhancing it, and relaying in the immediate area.
For the most part signal boosters are 3 -part systems:
- The Outside Antenna to capture weak cell signal.
- The Amplifier to boost the weak signal.
- The Inside Antenna to rebroadcast the enhanced signal inside your home or car.
What is The Solution Offered by Electrical Installations?
Our solution requires an in-depth survey of the property, looking at the routes for cabling required and the floor space to be covered by the signal.
An external antenna will be mounted at a high point on the building, usually the roof but in some occasions, it will be on the side of the building. This antenna will receive the signal from the nearest mast with the strongest signal.
The data cable is then installed to the internal signal boosters to allow the amplified signal to reach the boosters which in turn corrects the signal to the correct frequency throughout the building.
Installed correctly by a specialist, this can give you the best possible outcome of full 4G as per the outside signal.
