Well, as title of this post says that we are going to tell you that how you can choose best cell phone booster according to your need. We will guide you to your perfect booster which will finish all of your signal problems. Don’t worry, cell phone signal booster is not a very confusing device which needs lots to understand but it is a device which requires some attention at installation only then it will work itself.
There is only one technical term you need to understand here and that is the power in which signal use to be get transmitted. This power is use to be calculated in dBm, like we use cm/m/km for measuring distance in same way dBm is use to measure the power for transmitting the cell phone signal. For example, if you are 30ft away from cell phone tower then the amount of power required for signal transmission will be 300dB wirelessly.
Coming to point of booster, when a low signal strength gets converted in to higher level then it have some limits. This limit use to be decided by ability of cell phone repeater. Suppose you have installed a cell phone booster with range of 200sqft and the area needed to cover is 500sqft, will that booster will work? Answer is yes BUT it will only work in area of 200sqft around itself and going beyond that will be losing signal strength.
Another misunderstanding of many people:
Some people tried installing two high YAGI antennas back to back in hilly areas and expected that their signal problem will go away. Thing they forgot is that YAGI antenna has its limitation, YAGI antenna itself cannot produce so much signal strength that it can cover whole hilly area. They expected that with YAGI antenna they will be able to get proper signal strength on both side of hill which is totally false expectation, actually a YAGI antenna can only jump the signal to 3ft approx.
Do understand here that if you want to cover large area then you should go for large boosters. There are larger capacity boosters for both propose i.e. inside as well as outside. For covering large outside areas like full street or some hilly colony, there are cell phone antenna repeaters specially made for that propose. The starting range of this kind of cell phone signal repeater is $1600 to $2900, the range increases as required covering area increases. If the area required to cover is in acres then for that propose the cell phone booster will range from $4000 to $7500. Similarly the range goes above $12000. Keep in mind that such booster you will not be installing at yourself, this will be done with contribution of all and that way it will not cost too much to individual.
